Българската новинарска агенция (Sofia News Agency) успя да разговаря с Нина Добрев, като й зададе няколко въпроса относно голямата й популярност по цял свят, ролите й в Degrassi и The Vampire Diaries , и, разбира се, за българските й корени.

Your family emigrated to Canada when you were very young. What is your image of Bulgaria? What does it mean for you? How often do you come to Bulgaria? Do you have family there? Do you have a favorite place or a favorite thing that you do in Bulgaria?

I moved to Canada at a very early age, but growing up I would come back to Bulgaria often (summers, Christmas etc). In the past few years since I came into the film industry and I have been working consistently, it has been difficult to come back as often as I would like to.

I spent this past Christmas in Bulgaria in Sofia and in the mountains snowboarding. I have a lot of family that still lives there so I try to visit as much as I can – its hard when you live so far away from your family. I miss them a lot.

My favorite place/thing is to go to the Black Sea, but I’ve been working over the past few summers so I haven’t been in years!!!

What do you tell your friends about Bulgaria? Do you feel proud of your Bulgarian roots, and why?

Everyone who knows me knows I am Bulgarian and that I am proud of it! I speak Bulgarian with my family, and when my friends hear it they say – “wow that’s so cool that you speak another language! Sounds so cool”.

Наскоро Нина Добрев даде кратко, но много интересно интервю за канадското издание Toronto Sun. В него тя разказва много за последния епизод (2×09 Katerina), в който я чухме да говори и на български, как майка й е помогнала за превода на диалога в началото на епизода и за това какво е да играе Елена и Катрин.
Скоро очаквайте пълен превод на интервюто, който ще бъде пуснат в секцията Интервюта на FanZone.

Nina Dobrev personally is making sure nothing gets lost in translation on The Vampire Diaries.

With a little help from her mom, that is.

Dobrev and her mother worked on the Bulgarian dialogue that was used in the most recent new episode to air (Nov. 11). The 21-year-old Dobrev is Bulgarian-Canadian, having been born in Bulgaria but raised in Toronto.

“I called my mom, and she and I translated it,” Dobrev said of the Bulgarian dialogue in the episode titled Katerina.

“I think the writers had used an internet translator and it was so funny. All those online translators are never right. So we did it. I translated my own dialogue, but I called my mom just to confirm I was right.

“I worked really, really hard on that (episode),” added Dobrev, on the phone last week during a rare day off from shooting. “I really got to play the four different characters. And it was great to play the innocence of pre-vampire Katherine, when she was just a normal human.”

Dobrev has been particularly busy with dual roles this season on The Vampire Diaries, which airs Thursdays on CW and A.

There’s the sweet but plucky teen Elena, who has inspired the devotion of vampire brothers Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder). But there also is the vampire Katherine, who previously inspired the devotion of Stefan and Damon before she turned them into vampires themselves.

When Dobrev mentioned “four characters,” she wasn’t exaggerating. There’s Elena; there’s modern-day Katherine; there’s 1800s Katherine, seen many times in flashbacks; and now 1400s Katherine and her Bulgarian dialogue has been added to the fray. With regard to all the heavy lifting, Dobrev said she’s fortunate everything has happened gradually.

“I’ve done it in small baby steps,” Dobrev said. “I’ve been given a lot of opportunities in different parts of my life, starting in Toronto with Degrassi, then the bit parts in movies that I did, and now The Vampire Diaries.

“But even with this TV show, I signed on to play the one character and it slowly got bigger and bigger, and more and more. They kind of eased me into two pretty intense roles.”

Elena and Katherine are so different that the producers of The Vampire Diaries easily could have tweaked the story and simply hired a second actress.

True, the fact that Elena and Katherine are doppelgangers is central to the plot now. But with only slight alterations to the tale, their connection could have been about blood lines and similar looks rather than identical looks.

Alas, they decided to go with “Dobrev times two”, which obviously creates an acting challenge.

“One of them has been on the earth for only, what, 17, 18 years? And the other one has been around for 500-plus years,” Dobrev said. “That’s a little bit of a difference.

Katherine is more worldly and even the clothing affects the way I act.

“If I put on a pair of heels, I start walking differently and it holds true to Katherine. But if I’m in Converse (running shoes) and jeans and a T-shirt, I feel very much like Elena.”

To sum up, Nina Dobrev is playing Elena, three Katherines, and is serving as an unofficial translator on The Vampire Diaries. So Dobrev must be getting at least double, if not quadruple or quintuple the pay, right?

“Uh … can’t comment on that,” Dobrev said. “But I’m working really hard.”

Melissa Girimonte е била на червения килим на ежегодните награди Gemini и е успяла да зададе няколко въпроса на Нина за Дневниците на вампира.
Освен, че е пуснала интервюто в текстов вариант в сайта си, тя също е публикувала и аудио запис от събитието.

If you’ll forgive me for unleashing my inner fangirl for a moment, you are totally rocking it as Katherine and Elena this year, to the point where we have to constantly remind ourselves that you’re one person!
— That’s the goal, that’s what we want to achieve. They are two really different people so I have to work really hard to make sure they have different walks, they talk differently, the mannerisms… they just have different minds, they grew up in different eras, different genres, in different times so it’s like a whole other beast.

How much more of a challenge has shooting this season been?
–It has been a challenge, but it’s been a welcome one. It’s longer hours because I’m in every single scene and it’s not sleeping because we work at night a lot of the time. I have my work cut out for me but I’m very excited and willing to do it.
