Nina Dobrev Was Literally Set On Fire For 'Flatliners'

Nina Dobrev Was Literally Set On Fire For 'Flatliners'

You can’t see us, but we’re making the same face that Nina Dobrev is in this picture after learning that she was really set on fire for it.

The actress spoke to EW about the movie and how she prepared for this particular scene.

“Well, first of all, your wardrobe gets fireproofed, which is a certain chemical that can’t really burn. They dip your clothes in it and let that dry. And then they put this jelly stuff all over your skin and underneath,” she explains.

“They put gas on your arm — well, they did on my arm — and then they come at me with a blowtorch, right before they call ‘Action.’”

Nina adds, “They call ‘Action,’ they light my arm on fire, I have to act like I’m on fire — which I am — and react to the scariness of it, which wasn’t too hard.”

We’d be screaming out heads off!

“After a few seconds, as it moves up my arm, they call cut, and they run in with fire extinguishers,” Nina shares. “So it goes from hot to cold very, very quickly. … We did that…five or six times at least? You also have to get it from different angles.”

But fire isn’t all Nina had to go through — there’s also being shocked back to life, too.

Flatliners hits theaters in September.

Nina Dobrev Opens Up About Her Shocking 'Vampire Diaries' Departure

Nina Dobrev Opens Up About Her Shocking 'Vampire Diaries' Departure

Nina Dobrev looks so stunning in her cover shoot for harper by Harper’s BAZAAR’s September issue, on newsstands August 22.

Here’s what the actress had to share with the mag:

On her shocking departure from the hit CW series The Vampire Diaries in 2015: “That was the plan from the get-go. If anything, the fact that [leaving] terrified me drove me even more. I needed to feel that fear of ‘Oh, my God, what if I never get a job again?’ That just made me want to work five times as hard to make sure that didn’t happen.”

On her roles since then: “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.”

On living an adventurous life: “My rule of thumb is, I’ll try anything once. I have a healthy—or possibly unhealthy—obsession with trying things for the first time. Nobody imagines me to be by myself backpacking, so they just think, ‘It can’t be her.’”

On how her modest background helped shape her political views: “I come from an immigrant family, and I think it’s unacceptable to treat anyone like that,” of Donald Trump’s “build the wall” rhetoric. “Hopefully he’ll get impeached. Or indicted. Or both. He just doesn’t act like a president. He acts like a reality star on a terrible, horrible show that should never be aired. And he’s responsible for incredibly important decisions for the country that I live in, so my opinion does matter whether or not I had a chance to vote.”

Nina Dobrev Had Big Dreams To Go To The Olympics

Nina Dobrev Had Big Dreams To Go To The Olympics

Nina Dobrev goes on a brisk walk with her puppy, Mrs. Maverick, around her neighborhood in Los Angeles this week.

The former Vampire Diaries actress opened up in a new interview about her workout regime and how it can be a little difficult to get it in because she is a new pet parent.

“It’s tricky to do when you have a new puppy and a very demanding work schedule, but I try to do something active every day,” Nina shared.

She adds about her workouts she does: “They’re [Reebok and the Les Mills GRIT workouts] high intensity and very short. I’m in and out in 30 minutes, and I get my butt kicked! I leave drenched in sweat, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

Nina also revealed that once upon a time, she wanted to go to the Olympics!

“It was always a dream to go to the Olympics, and some of my teammates actually did,” she says. “When I got to the age of 15, I knew that wasn’t in my cards, but I still loved to perform, so I took a different path.”

Nina Dobrev Rocks 'Baby Girl' Tank Top & Silver Cutout Pumps for Dinner

We’d really like to go shopping in Nina Dobrev‘s closet.

She wore a grey and red tank top with the words “Baby Girl” etched onto the front, along with high-waisted jeans, silver pumps with circular cutouts, and a black leather jacket that she wore draped over her shoulders.

Nina completed her look with a small red purse, dark shades, and her hair styled into loose curls.

That same night, Nina took to Instagram to pay tribute to her late furry friend Lynx.

“A day doesn’t go by that I don’t think about my sleeping angel,” Nina captioned the sweet slideshow below. “Especially on #Internationalcatday. Rest In Peace beautiful girl. Missing your sandpaper kisses terribly, my Lynx.”

Nina Dobrev Makes Working Out A Big Priority For Herself

Nina Dobrev Makes Working Out A Big Priority For Herself

Nina Dobrev is seriously, just like us.

The former Vampire Diaries actress chatted with Huffington Post about her workout regime and it’s actually the best.

“I don’t know if it’s my DNA, but I need to do something active every single day,” she says. “I need to take some time for just me and remove myself from the daily stresses and pressures that are going on around me.”

Nina continues, “When you’re in a workout, you don’t have your cellphone, you’re not reachable, nobody can contact you and it’s good not only for your physical state but your mental state, as well. So I make it a very high priority.”

Nina also reveals that she does have cheat days and yes, even really bad days when she doesn’t want to work out at all.

“I’m a person just like anybody else. I’m a girl and I have insecurities of my own. So I think being a positive example by practicing what I preach hopefully sends out a good message. It’s about showing people it’s not always easy,” she adds. “When you’re running around you might be less healthy or have a cheat day, but that’s OK because we’re all human.”

“Nobody’s perfect. I have cheat days, I eat burgers! I like brownies!” Nina declares. “It’s just once I get to the gym I have to work twice as hard is all.”

Nina Dobrev Will Not Be Returning for Final Season of 'The Originals'

Nina Dobrev Will Not Be Returning for Final Season of 'The Originals'

Fans who were hoping to see Nina Dobrev in the fifth and final season of The Originals are unfortunately out of luck.

Nina played Elena Gilbert on The CW’s The Vampire Diaries, so it makes sense to wonder if she would make an appearance on the show’s spin-off series, The Originals.

“No, I will not be on The Originals, no,” Nina told Entertainment Weekly.

“We literally just wrapped a few months ago,” she continued. “I doubt that would be in the books for me. But, yeah, no, I’ve been so busy with all kinds of other things going on right now that I don’t know that I’d be able to sign on.”

“I’m not a young twenty-something anymore,” Nina added with a laugh. “I don’t think I could play a vampire. I’m getting old.”

You can catch Nina in the horror flick Flatliners, set to hit theaters on September 29!
