Julie Plec Explains Nina Dobrev's Decision to Leave 'Vampire Diaries'

Fans are still upset over Nina Dobrev‘s decision to leave the cast of The Vampire Diaries and now the show’s co-creator Julie Plec is opening up about how she tried to get the actress to stay longer.

“She was just looking forward to moving on with no hard feelings and no drama,” Julie said on the KCRW podcast last week.

“This is taking the personal out of it completely, from a storytelling point of view it’s a great challenge. As writers in the room we’re finding it very rejuvenating. Just on a strictly creative exercise level,” she added.

Nina had said earlier this year that she wanted to be done and we spent a little bit of time trying to talk her out of it. [We'd say,] ‘Oh, look at all these great plans of how you can stay!’” she explained. “And she finally was like, ‘No, I signed up for six years. I’ve done my six years. I’m ready to move on and spread my wings.’”

Elena Doesn't Know What to Do About Damon On All-New 'Vampire Diaries' Tonight

Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) take one last look at each other before literally jumping off a roof in this new still from tonight’s The Vampire Diaries.

In “I’d Leave My Happy Home for You,” Alaric (Matt Davis) and Jo (Jodi Lyn O’Keefe) reluctantly participate in their bachelor and bachelorette parties while Damon and Elena discuss the ramifications from an impulsive offer that Damon made. Unsure of what to do, Elena turns to Bonnie (Kat Graham) and Jo for advice, but is left conflicted when Bonnie raises some unanticipated concerns.

Meanwhile, when Enzo (Michael Malarkey) realizes Lily (Annie Wersching) is on a dangerous downward spiral, he asks Stefan (Paul Wesley) to help intervene before it’s too late.

Lastly, fed up with the supernatural threats that plague their town, Matt (Zach Roerig) takes his frustrations out on Tyler (Michael Trevino), while Alaric considers a life-changing piece of advice.

“I’d Leave My Happy Home for You” airs TONIGHT, Thursday, April 30th @ 8PM ET/PT on The CW.
