Nina Dobrev Says Goodbye to The Vampire Diaries Again

It seems like just yesterday that we said goodbye to Nina Dobrev as she left The Vampire Diaries. For some reason, that moment brings tears to my eyes. It was hard then and it’s hard now. Every goodbye gets more and more painful, because there are certain things that you just don’t want to ever say goodbye to.

The thing is The Vampire Diaries has been a part of us – a part of fandom for a large part of my fandom life. There are times where the show irritated the fuck out of me, times where I gave up, times where I wouldn’t let it go.

Because The Vampire Diaries became a part of all of us.

Nina Dobrev said goodbye again yesterday and it hurts. It feels like we are so close to the end and who is ready for that? Who is ready for the emotions that will inevitably take over.

I wasn’t.




“It feels like it was just yesterday that I was saying goodbye. And yet two years have passed and here we are again. This is my true final goodbye, as today I shot my last scene of the Vampire Diaries forever. Coming back for the series finale has been a whirlwind of emotion, nostalgia, love, tears of joy and bittersweet endings. It feels like the beautiful closure we all needed, myself included, and I couldn’t have been happier to come home to be with my TVD set family and friends.”

Dearest TVD family, It feels like it was just yesterday that I was saying goodbye. And yet two years have passed and here we are again. This is my true final goodbye, as today I shot my last scene of the Vampire Diaries forever. Coming back for the series finale has been a whirlwind of emotion, nostalgia, love, tears of joy and bittersweet endings. It feels like the beautiful closure we all needed, myself included, and I couldn’t have been happier to come home to be with my TVD set family and friends. I feel the fans family will also be happy with the show’s conclusion when they tune in to watch the last episode air in a few short weeks. From the bottom of my heart, I send you my biggest thanks for the countless years of implicit dedication, passion, support, and undying love from all the fans that have stuck with us on this truly amazing and beautiful journey. As this last chapter ends, we welcome and look forward to going on to the next adventure and hope that you continue to follow us as our new journeys begin. I grew up on this show and am eternally grateful for all the opportunities it has given me, and so thankful for each and every person who worked on The Vampire Diaries over the last 8 years. We are all pieces of a big puzzle and without every truly amazing cast and crew member, this magical puzzle would not be complete. Thank you for all your hard work, friendship and love. You have touched my heart in ways you will never know. Sending looch smooches, Love, Katherine, Amara, Tatia, and of course, Elena Gilbert. #TVDforever #FangsForTheMemories ❤ Ps.

And in a final sweep of words that caused memories that I won’t let go of, she signed, “Katherine, Amara, Tatia, and of course, Elena Gilbert. #TVDforever #FangsForTheMemories”

She gave parting gifts that were equally as touching. Giving Keys.
