Why did Nina Dobrev leave The Vampire Diaries?

Nina Dobrev left The Vampire Diaries after the sixth season due to a combination of personal and professional reasons. She reportedly wanted to take on new challenges and explore other acting opportunities. It’s also been rumored Dobrev was seeking a salary increase, which the network was not willing to offer.

Nina rose to national fame when she landed the role of Elena Gilbert in CW’s hit series in 2009. Six years later, she surprised fans when she did not sign on for season 7.

The American supernatural drama television series concluded on March 10, 2017, after airing 171 episodes over eight seasons.

In an interview with Harper’s BAZAAR, Nina maintains that the exit was her choice.

“That was the plan from the get-go,” she explained. “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?'” she told the magazine. “That just made me want to work five times as hard to make sure that didn’t happen.”

How much money did Nina Dobrev make per episode of The Vampire Diaries?

While her co-star Ian Somerhalder made $40,000 per episode, Nina was paid “just” $30,000 per episode of TVD.

Her net worth is currently around 11 million, and Ian’s net worth is about $12 million. She has been as successful as Ian after leaving TVD.

Why did Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder break up?

The age factor played a significant part. Nina was 24 and Ian 34 when their three-year relationship ended. He was ready for marriage, but she was not.

After leaving Nina in 2013, Ian started dating Nikki Reed one year later. They confirmed their engagement in February 2015 and married in Malibu, California, on April 26, 2015.
