TVLine's Performer of the Week: Nina Dobrev

tvddobrevA weekly feature in which we spotlight a shining star

THE PERFORMER | Nina Dobrev

THE SHOW | The Vampire Diaries (The CW)

THE EPISODE | “Stand By Me”

THE AIRDATE | Feb. 21, 2013

THE PERFORMANCE | Dobrev was fantastic from the start of the episode, but when a trembling Elena lifted the blanket covering her dead brother’s face, she went for broke, rolling out what would be a tour de force display of acting. Just like that, you could see the tiny cracks in Elena’s facade give way to the emotions she’d been trying to keep out.

“He’s dead! And he’s been dead this entire time, and I…. How long has he smelled like that?!” she cried, covering her face at the horrifying and shameful realization that she’d been so in denial, she had let Jeremy decay.

With nothing left to lose, Elena presented her shocking plan to burn down the house with Jer’s body in it, as a cover story. Without abandon, Dobrev took her character to the edge as Elena swept through the rooms, ready to destroy her childhood home and the memories of those she’s loved and lost, in a manner so reckless and wild, Caroline yelled that she was scaring her.

What followed was gut-wrenching. Unable to cope with her magnified grief, Elena collapsed to her knees. “It hurts. It hurts. Just make it stop. Please make it stop. It hurts,” she pleaded. The pain behind Dobrev’s sobs was so palpable, it felt like they were coming from the innermost part of her soul.

Then, the scene that was so captivating it made us temporarily forget to breathe: When Damon told Elena to turn off her humanity, Dobrev’s eyes ever-so-subtly, but powerfully, went blank. To see the actress go from feeling everything (and too much of it) to not feeling at all was impressive. Yet by going void of emotion, Dobrev made us feel oh so many things, including empathy, despair for all that’s been lost and, most of all, awe at her ability.

What performance knocked your socks off this week?

  • she was really good.I usually don’t like Elena’s character that much but in this ep just like in the Jenna dying ep she was tremendous. I really felt with her. I felt the blackhole which started to eat her up. .

    • I admit that was a good acting from Niuna, but she didn’t deserve this spot, Nathan, in Castle, was the best he ever been, and Marguilles in Good Wife was on fire. I love TVD, but, unfortunately, it wasn’t better than Nathan or Marguilles.

    • She’s a great actress but the role usually so thankless. The character of Elena has stopped being a character and started being a point in a love triangle Julie Plec strangely enough, writes really bad women(Caroline has been downgraded a down since Julie took over) and Bonnie is a plot point….But this episode, written by Julie, has restored by faith in her…Elena was finally a character. She’s finally on her storyline that isn’t defined by Damon or Stefan. Now if only we can see that happen to the other female characters.

  • For the very first time, i was in awe. Nina Dobrev delivered the performance of her life this week and oh my good how great was it! I hope we continue to see that in the future.

  • I started watching the show about 4 months back, did not know anything about her. Was straight up excited with her acting on Elena vs Katherine and the impersonations. This is just a new high. They should give her challenging materials whenever they can because she really makes it an experience. Wonderful

    • Did you start watching from season 4 or season 1? There’s a lot of Katherine in the earlier seasons and you can see how well she plays the two roles. Katherine is probably my favourite character on TVD, which is hilarious since Elena is one of my least favourite (although I’m digging the idea of an emotionless Elena).

  • The entire cast of Parks and Recreation were amazing this week in the wedding episode. Every actor brought their A game!

    • Yeah, they should’ve been runners up. Ron made me cry. Chris made me cry. Ben made me cry. Good lord it was so good.

  • Nina Dobrev on TVD and Emily VanCamp on Revenge were the standouts this week. They deserve all the awards!

  • I’ve been somewhat on the fence about this season, it really hasn’t been as good as the previous ones, but this episode was definitely one of the best they’ve done and Nina Dobrev carried it well. I myself am still in shock that they actually killed Jeremy.

    Comment by Charissa D. Jelliff – February 23, 2013 06:35 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Me too. I think that some of Dobrev’s acting was lost on me because I didn’t think it was real. And I still don’t. I think we’ll get through this loss-of-humanity plot line and he’ll be back. When Elena started rampaging, I was like “Wait, is this serious?” because it seemed so silly that Jeremy could die.

      Comment by B – February 23, 2013 06:45 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Just a reminder: when you get back from denial, DON’T BURN YOUR HOUSE DOWN! (Jer is gone, unfortunatelly, accept it).

  • This should have gone to Nathan Fillion tbh.

    • I thought he wasn’t the great in a couple of scenes

      Comment by JAA – February 23, 2013 06:43 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I actually came here to see if he was a runner-up, as TVLine has done that sometimes. Like Tlc19 said below, hopefully next week. Nathan was fantastic this week!

    • this man never watch Castle, so how could he choose NF’s acting as the best if he dont know how Nathan acted? Have you seen the list of the best shows of 2012 according to this guy? pff

      Comment by gabr923 – February 23, 2013 10:58 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Definitely agree that this spot should have been occupied by Nathan Fillion… Maybe next week? I hear the 2nd half of that 2-parter is just as good! #savealexis

    Comment by Tlc19 – February 23, 2013 06:40 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Fillion was great, I agree, but Dobrev pretty much left me speechless.

    • Nathan was awesome but I thought nina was define rlly better the raw emotion and heartache she displayed it was guy wrenching and it felt so real the entire ep was amazing and the whole cast was great but she was absolutely perfect in this ep i felt like I was there watching her and couldn’t do ne thing 2 help and it was heart breaking and like they say in the article when she shuts off her humanity n u see her eyes go void of emotion it was chilling she rlly deserves a bunch of awards 4 this performance in my opinion

      Comment by Kayla – February 26, 2013 01:09 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Her acting was certainly powerful, but the writing in this article got so editorialized and cheesy at points. In any case, she was good.
    I don’t even know if I can appreciate death episodes as much as I should. I know Dobrev and this episode were good, but I am so very spoiled by Dan’s death on One Tree Hill. It was executed so perfectly, it’s my favorite ever and probably always will be, with Grey’s elevator scene and O’Malley’s death being the runner-up.

    Comment by B – February 23, 2013 06:42 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Danny Boy was just the most beautiful redemption of a character I have ever seen. It was unbelievable, specially given One Tree Hill went really down it’s last few seasons.

  • No matter how any of us feel about Elena’s character at this point – and I fall into the category of pretty much hating Elena – no one can deny how AMAZING Nina was this week. To watch her grow from Degrassi to where she is now has been a joy for a long time fan.

    Comment by Amanda – February 23, 2013 06:44 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Nina was great but it was Zach Roerig who made me cry. Matt showed more emotion with one look then with 1000 words. Incredible acting!

    Comment by sophie – February 23, 2013 06:44 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Agree. super sad

      Comment by Faster – February 23, 2013 08:01 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • You know I agree. I actually teared up for the first time during the episode when Matt walks in and looks at Jeremy. One look was all it took. Perhaps it’s the fact that he’s human? Idk but it got to me.

      But yes I was very impressed with Nina. Didnt know she had it in her to be honest. :)

      Comment by Jenny – February 23, 2013 08:40 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Honestly, me neither. But Zach surprised me the most, maybe because his character is so underused and boring at times but I was really amazed by his skills. If you think about it, Matt indeed is right now the only really bright character and I wish he stays human and alive. In their crazy world they really need someone down to Earth who will tell them IT’S NOT OK to kill 12 people to bring supernaturals back and that Jeremy wouldn’t want that for sure.

        Comment by sophie – February 23, 2013 12:04 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Ditto. I felt the exact same way, tearing up only for Matt’s scene. Zach was perfect. But still a great job by Nina.

        Comment by Stephanie – February 23, 2013 05:36 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Yes. He was amazing.

      Comment by Ruby – February 24, 2013 09:41 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Yep I totally agree, Elena made me get choked up, but Matt had me sobbing. He was the last ‘normal’ person in the group with Jer turning into a hunter…and now…he’s just the last human. It’s heart breaking (and I kind of wanted a Matt/Jeremy romance…)

  • Nina dobrev, Emily VanCamp and Nathan Fillion! Bravo and brava this week! I mean damn, they really brought their best shot to act so real, it made us cry so hard.. Always love the middle eps of the series I watch.

    Comment by Dee – February 23, 2013 06:45 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I had about given up on the series until that scene where Elena loses her mind. I agree – Nina Dobrev nailed it!

    Comment by Robin Burks (@sunriserobin) – February 23, 2013 06:52 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Nathan was good, but Nina stole the show here. In fact everyone in this ep was at their best. Paul and Ian were great. Zach Roerig was also good when he broke down in the car. I welled up at that moment. Candice was her usual-Brilliant. Trying to take charge but also loosing it as she tries to take in d fact that another Gilbert is dead. Kat Graham also brought it with her insane ideas.

    Comment by shuayb – February 23, 2013 06:57 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • With you till the kat comment. I think her acting is the worst on the show.

      Comment by Jenny – February 23, 2013 08:42 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • IMO…Kats an amazing actress. I always think back to the scene when grams dies in s.1…..it’s heartbreaking. Honestly I think it may be that the writers jus don’t give her the goods to work with that she deserves.

        Comment by Jenna – February 23, 2013 05:24 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Nina was fantastic! She was definitely the MVP of this weeks Vampire Diaries, but I have to say Zach Roerig really impressed me, as he did in the Season 3 finale when he reacted to Tyler’s “death”. When he was crying in the car on Thursday’s episode I felt almost uncomfortable watching, like I was witnessing someone’s very private grief, it felt so raw and real. When he came in to Jeremy’s room, that was the first time I started to feel upset during the episode. I get why it can be hard to incorporate Matt in to some of the story lines, but I wish they would give him more to do. Zach is so underused on the show which is a shame because he is one of the better actors.

  • I don´t watch Vampire Diaries, but for me this week belongs to Nathan Fillion! I´m sure Nina Dobrev (and others) were great, but for me Nathan´s acting was absolutely amazing!

    Comment by Mary – February 23, 2013 07:03 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Nathan wasn’t as great. It was powerful stuff but comedy is his forte :)

      Comment by Jenny – February 23, 2013 08:44 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • IMO, he was absolutely great! Usually we don´t see him doing drama, but when he does he´s amazing! But again, that´s my opinion:)

      • I agree, which is weird because I watched monday episode thinking that Nathan was going to be great and that it was finally is chance to shine but he was disapointing. I found the scene where he’s waiting to know the blood type laughable.
        I also find it weird that no one ever mentioned that his acting for the last two seasons has been forced and boring. Where are you Nathan?

  • WHAT Nathan Fillion was so awesome this week showing the distraught father. The emotions he showed were so realistic and made me tear up throughout the episode. Big FAIL tvline.

    • I love Castle and Nathan Fillion, but Nina definately deserves every accolade she is receiving about this episode. His fear was palpable, but her grief…….I’ve been there. I lost my brother/best friend a few years ago, and it was hands down the worst part of my life. Nina took me there again (though trust me, I wish she hadn’t). No actor in any show has ever captured the pain I remember feeling, the hopeless, unending grief. She did it. She was real.

      Comment by Ashley – February 23, 2013 07:03 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I am so excited that you showcased Nina this week because as I was watching the episode I was thinking that she should be in the running for this spot. She was amazing this episode, as was everyone in the cast. From the moment she realized Jeremy was dead to the end of the episode I cried.

  • I understand this week was extremely tough since you could’ve chosen between Emily VanCamp, Jennifer Morrison, Julianna Margulies and Nathan Fillion, but Nina Dobrev? Mmmm.

    Comment by martina – February 23, 2013 08:29 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Maybe you don’t follow The Vampire Diaries and are judging without watching the scene the article is referring to? The other four actors you mentioned definitely brought their A game this week – Nathan Fillion was astounding – but Nina Dobrev was just as incredible (this coming from a fan of the show who really dislikes her most weeks). My thinking is that Nathan Fillion will probably get the title next week for the back half of this two-parter.

      Comment by hillary – February 24, 2013 07:21 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I agree with you, but I`d choose Julianna Margulies. She was jus aweome, and that was the best episode of TGW so far.

      Comment by nathgjo – February 24, 2013 10:28 AM PDT  Reply To This Post

  • She was really great. It’s been nice to see how she’s grown as an actress over the years. My personal pic for this week is definetly Nathan Fillion, specifically for the season where he was waiting for the blood type. But Nina Dobrev nailed it too.

  • I’m sure Nina was fantastic, but I really think someone from the cast of Parks and Rec should’ve gotten some recognition. Ron and Leslie and Ben and Chris and Andy all had me sobbing. It was my favorite episode of any show I’ve ever seen.

  • The last half of TVD was just phenomenal period! Lol yes Nina was amazing but I really have to agree with some of you all on Zach being the scene stealer of the night! The look on his face when he sees jeremys dead body on the bed was fantastic! I started bawling my eyes out right then when Elena ran over to conmfort matt and all he can do is stare at jer! So sad :( why can’t it be march 14th already!?

  • Fillion should have won, but Vampire Diaries is more of a hipster must-see at this point than Castle, and that’s how these things get selected … they have to keep their pseudo-cool cred in good standing

    • There is nothing “hipster” about The Vampire Diaries. Based on past performers of the week, your misunderstanding of the word hipster, and clear lack of knowledge of The Vampire Diaries, your comment doesn’t make any sense.

  • I still have a lot of TV to watch this week, but I was impressed by Alyson Hannigan this week on HIMYM. Rarely does she get to really flex her acting chops on that show, but her scene with with Jason Segal where she breaks down about her career was great. Not saying she was better than the others (i haven’t seen them yet) but I thought she was fantastic.

    Comment by Jellymoff – February 23, 2013 10:34 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I so much agree with this. She was incredible in her scenes this week. When she breaksdown and wants to set the house on fire.. Oh my god. It was her best performance yet on the show IMO! Runner up with Emily Van Camp for me. Even if we didn’t feel much for Fauxmanda, her reaction left us all in tears, it was so intense!

    AND if there was an awards for best ensemble…i would still give it to TVD!

  • Nina was phenomenal. My favorite part was when she was rattling off the list of all the people she loved who died. That really hit me as it forces you to see that, as obnoxious as Elena can be at times, she’s just a teenage girl who has lost more in the span of a few years than most people do in a lifetime. Definite runner-up to Zach, though. I’ve never thought much of Matt either way, but Zach was incredible.

  • Very undeserved. She was acceptable but very forced. She was trying way too hard to be heartbreaking and it just looked like acting. I wasn’t at all invested in her scenes and I feel like she was the only thing keeping it from being a truly great TVD episode. The only scene that broke my heart was when Matt walked into the bedroom and saw Jeremy’s body. Zach spun gold from 5 minutes of screentime (and giving Matt this kind of praise isn’t something I usually do). HE should have been your performer of the week.

    Comment by dude – February 23, 2013 04:44 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I whole heartedly disagree, guy’s your making your site a joke.

    She WAS good but hardly deserves plaudits. I felt like I was watching an acting class, she went through the motions well and she sold it but she did not move me to tears nor evoke any emotion from me. Unlike Emily Van Camp who I have never liked as Emily in Revenge and been really meh about her – she however blew my socks off and really sold Amanda’s death. I wasn’t even that much a fan of Amanda but both of them did that scene so well. They deserve plaudits – they brought the tears, that grief was damn well sold.

    Seriously maybe It was because I watched Revenge beforehand or the fact that I’ve been watching movie likes Les Miserables and Zero Dark Thirty but actingwise, she was very average there. Maybe it’s unfair to compare her to Oscar worthy actors but that’s what I’ve been watching these past few days and look, people are saying that TVD here tried to do what The Body did but seriously that was one big fail. It left me bored and a bit depressed. I liked Jeremy but still, was totally unmoved due to a combo of script and acting I guess. The MVP that brought it here IMO was Zach/Matt in his last scene breaking down in the car.

    • I agree Erin, I also felt that Zach/Matt’s scene was more heartbreaking than Elena’s.

      Does anyone else think the hug between Bonnie/Damon and Elena saying to Matt that Damon really loves Bonnie could mean something coming down the line? Remember Damon was in love with Elena and Bonnie in the books and with Jeremy gone…. I’m just saying that was kind of weird to me coming out of the blue all of a sudden. That would also mean that Elena will be going back to Stefan. I hope I am just speculating.
