Nina Dobrev is that doe-eyed brunette you see Thursday nights on the CW, appearing as Elena on The Vampire Diaries. (Oh, the trials of being in a love triangle!) She is a very beautiful actress in her own right, but she does remind me of some other actresses.
It might not help that The Vampire Diaries really reminds me of a certain WB show that Kevin Williamson was also involved with back in the 90’s. This show also featured a prominent love triangle. Do you remember who the young, brunette ingenue was for Williamson back then?
That young actress was Katie Holmes! Let’s just hope Dobrev doesn’t meet a crazy actor named Tom ‘Cruz’. Ahem.
To me, Nina looks like a mix of… Amber Tamblyn, Shiri Appleby, Sophia Bush, Katie Holmes… It’s hard to capture this in pictures, but when I watch the show sometimes it’s weird how much she looks like someone else.
Speaking of Holmes, tell me that Dawson and Pacey don’t look like Stefan and Damon. You can’t! It’s weird. History is repeating itself! Which means that Nina Dobrev will start dating Ian Somerhalder… No one will like Stefan by season two, and the ‘blonde actress’ who plays Caroline that no one pays attention to will go on to have a better career than most of them a la Michelle Williams.
