“Oh, they are, actually,” says Colton of The Vampire Diaries co-stars. “I didn’t — I forgot about... I’m sure they’re really great friends, though.” It sounded as if Colton confirmed the split. Many fans have been waiting to hear directly from either Ian or Nina about the state of their relationship, though many sources have insisted the two are no longer together.
Since Colton’s been on his fair share of sets, the reporter then wanted to know if he thinks it will be awkward when Ian and Nina return to Atlanta to start filming Season 5 of TVD. The former Teen Wolf star said he didn’t think so. “I think you become really good friends with that person,” he explained. "But I don't think it would be awkward for them. I think they are both well rounded people."
Besides, in Colton’s opinion, “you always have for someone” even after you’ve broken up.
