We weren’t the only ones tearing up during The Vampire Diaries series finale. So were the actors!
In fact, Nina Dobrev recently shared her thoughts about the emotional final hour.
“I am satisfied with the way the show ends — the fact that Elena finds peace and becomes human, which is what she always wanted,” Nina told EW.com.” She gets to be with the man that she loves [Ian Somerhalder's Damon], which is what she always wanted. She gets to say goodbye to her former love and now best friend. I cried during a lot of moments. I didn’t get the chance to be at the final read-through unfortunately but maybe that’s for the best because I would’ve been a mess.”
She added, “I cried during Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Caroline’s (Candice King) final moments, because it broke my heart. I cried at the end when I read that Elena was writing in the diary again, when Elena basically says the same sentence that I did in the pilot eight years ago.”
