“In this particular case, she came in and did the ADR, [automated dialogue replacement],” executive producer Julie Plec told TVLine.com. “I reached out and said, ‘We can either cobble it together from a bunch of episodes, or you can come in and see everybody and do ADR. She chose to do it in person, which was great, because it was a nice little personal Nina visit.”
So will we see Nina again in the future?
“It’s what she and I kind of agreed on when she decided to move on, and it’s what I’ve got in my head,” Julie said. “Obviously things can change throughout time, if the show goes on longer than we expect it to, or if we all collectively decide it would be fun to bring her back earlier, and she wanted to. But in my opinion, she was very clear about what she wanted the next step in her life to be, and she’s doing a great job of achieving that. So I’m sticking with my side of the plan, which is to bring her back at the very end.”
