After featuring as the lead character in the fan favourite tee drama show, The Vampire Diaries, Nina decided to suddenly leave the series. After running for 8 glorious seasons, the popular 2009 teen drama series The Vampire Diaries came to an end in 2017. However, Nina only played the role of Elena Gilbert for six seasons. While she did come back for the series finale, her character did not make an appearance in the episodes after season six.

Based on L.J. Smith's popular book series of the same name, the show revolved around Nina’s character Elena, who loses both her parents in a car accident and eventually falls in love with a 162-year-old vampire named Stefan Salvatore (played by Paul Wesley). For the first 3 seasons, Elena was dating Stefan, however, she started developing feelings for Damon (Ian Somerhalder), Stefan’s elder brother and the two started romancing each other from season 4. Meanwhile, Nina and Ian fell in love in real life. After dating for three years, Nina and Ian decided to call it quits.

While many believed that the actress left the show because of the breakup, Nina opened up about her decision during an interview with Harper's Bazaar. The actress stated that she left the show to explore other options in her career. She said she did not want to play a teenager anymore. “The things I want to do aren't necessarily the things that are expected of me. I don't want to play a teenager anymore. I want to play adult roles and be challenged and work with great filmmakers and tell incredible stories, and that has meant being really picky," she said.

after re-watching all the 8 glorious seasons i still stick to the fact that stefan wasnt meant to be sacrificed in the final finale of tvd he deserved more than just sacrificing every single time whether it was when for elena i cant even count the times he sacrificed himself just for damon and klaus should've ended up with caroline.there was just friendship between stefan &care. and at last it should have been damon.

I'm gonna miss her. Seriously, I don't know if I'll be able watch season 7, well she had her reasons. Love you Nina

I can't help but think her leaving was a wrong move; it was too early. But it's also hard to get away from an iconic character; it's a huge risk if you are trying to move to movies (if that is what she was doing). I think she should try Netflix and do a couple of Hallmark-esque movies. She would be perfect in Sweet Magnolias. Or she could even star in independent type movies. Oddly, I really would want to see her in The Witcher!

Yes it's true We all luv her in TVD She said she left to be a grown up... I've seen her other movie roles and to tell the truth nothing worth watching. I think leaving TVD when she do hurt her chances to get some great roles

I still wish she takes part to do a role in the present series, The Legacues. She is a very good actress which holds great importance and influence. I love her acting skills. No more words for appreciation.

I felt that she messed up the the show. She wanted to do more adult roles but she didn’t do anything while she was gone. And when she returned for the ending of vampire diaries she looked way different. I hope they make a season 9, I want them to explain more about their “happy ending”. I hope she stays for season 9 and the original characters too !!

Ian tried to get her to take on a more adult role, she rejected him and he moved on.. Personally, I was glad to see Elena gone, the bonus would have been if Damon had ended up with anyone other then Elena, Ric would have been an improvement! Did I mention I hated Elena??

I think she should've stayed on until the end of whole series. She said she wanted to act in adult roles when she couldn't behave like an adult after her breakup with Ian Somerhalder so she left and made up an excuse about her career. Immature behaviour. She was the lead female character on one of the best supernatural shows the time and she gave that up. She should've finished TVD so that directors and casting agents could see her potential and commitment to a project. She messed up her own career.

How would you like to work in a environment where you see you Ex day in day and day out and you have to passionately kiss your ex at least 4 times a day?

If she felt like that she should have left earlier then not 2 seasons before ending. I did not like the ending at all I think Elena and Stefan should have ended up together as humans. If she had left before the ending would be very different.

I'm glad she left the show. 'Cause if she hadn't then the ending would have been different and her character would have ended up living her life with Stefan instead of Damon and that wouldn't have been real! What Elena and Damon had was real whereas Stefan and Elena were simply in a relationship 'cause it was that way for their original Doppelgangers who actually fell in love. And then of course the Universe kept playing the events in such a manner that the rest of doppelgangers may also meet each other and eventually fall in love. But thankfully true love triumphed and Damon and Elena ended up together to built a better and beautiful future for them.

Well they could have hired her on the basis of the 6 seasons too, if they wanted.

Anonymous 2 months ago

Well she could have just finished the last two seasons and if other producers and directors saw that they would hire her to play roles that were ment for adults, but leaving might have shown other producers and directors that she isn't that devoted even if she is. So if she just stayed for 2 more seasons her career would have been much better.

Daca s-a angajat sa joace intr-un serial, sa-si faca treaba pana la capat. In plus daca nu ar fi jucat in tvd nu ar fi ajuns asa cunoscuta...

Apparently, she made a bad choice for herself and her fans. TVD would have been much more entertaining, if she had stayed back for last 2 seasons

It's not always mandatory that professional fall out are consequences of personal splits. It was her personal choice. We should respect that .

See what that did to her career , if she patiently waited and finished her roles in a TVD she would have been much more popular with her looks and charisma
