Nina Dobrev

In a shocking statement, Nina Dobrev, star of The CW’s hit series, The Vampire Diaries, announced that she will be leaving the show at the end of this season. According to Dobrev, whose character, Elena Gilbert, has been the star since the start of the show, ” I always knew I wanted Elena’s story to be a six season adventure, and within those six years I got the journey of a lifetime.” While many fans understand and respect her decision to walk away on her own terms, they are still saddened. Since the announcement, many of Dobrev’s fans have begun to mourn the loss of the fictional Elena Gilbert. On Twitter, there has been an outpour of heartfelt tweets from viewers who simply don’t understand how the show can go on without Dobrev. While many are focused on how The Vampire Diaries will survive, the real question lies in what Dobrev will do once she departs. Although she will likely have many options, it’s important that she make the right moves in order to ensure that her start does fade. Here are the wisest career moves for Nina Dobrev to make right now.

1. Be selective.

Now that Nina Dobrev schedule has just opened up, she will probably be getting flooded with offers. However, it is important that Dobrev be very selective with whichever role she decides to take next, because one false move can permanently damage her career.

2. Try to avoid being typecast.

After spending six seasons on one show, it can be very easy to be typecast. Dobrev will certainly want to avoid being seen as Elena Gilbert for the rest of her career, as this may hurt her chances with earning future roles.

3. Stick with TV.

While Nina Dobrev’s TV career has been a success, her film resume is a little less impressive. Although she has appeared in a few films, it appears that her true calling is on the small-screen, and moving forward it will be extremely important that Dobrev play to her strengths.

4. Keep her fans updated.

Some fans feel hurt and betrayed by Dobrev’s decision to leave The Vampire Diaries. Now, it is most important than ever that Dobrev foster her relationship with her fans, and keep them updated on what she plans to do next.

5. Stay relevant

Dobrev will probably want to take a little break after she finishes her time on The Vampire Diaries. However, it is important that she not stay away from the camera for too long. Dobrev will want to do everything she can to make sure that she stays relevant. While fans really seem to love her, people can have a very short attention span, and their love for Dobrev can easily be replaced.
