It’s an emotional week on the set of The Vampire Diaries as Nina Dobrev acts opposite her co-stars for the final time as a series regular. Fortunately, as promised, she’s taking fans along on every step of her agonizing journey.
“There’s more to come before we wrap this up, and I promise you’ll get to hear all about my experiences over the next month as we approach the season finale,” Dobrev said in the announcement of her departure, posted to Instagram last week. “I want to share this goodbye with all of you.”
From her final scene with Paul Wesley to an emotional shoot with Ian Somerhalder to her last moments with Candice Accola and Kat Graham, neither Dobrev nor her Instagram account are missing a second.
Executive producer Caroline Dries recently told TVLine that Elena’s ending will be “hopeful” and “satisfying,” among other adjectives, and these photos certainly back that up.
