Off the Cuff: 'Vampire Diaries' Star Nina Dobrev Opens Up


Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev stopped by Peter Travers' office recently to chat about playing both the human ingenue Elena Gilbert and the evil vampire Katherine Pierce on the hit CW series. Dobrev is at turns silly and playful in this conversation with Peter, who happens to be a very big fan of the show. She demonstrates how she switches back and forth between her two roles, teases a major plot point from the upcoming season finale and gets coy when asked which of the show's hunky male leads is the best kisser. Plus, at the behest of co-star Ian Somerhalder, she ends the interview by playing the bongos with her elbows and singing in a munchkin voice.
