Vampire Diaries Star Nina Dobrev: “True Detective Is Taking Over My Life”
HBO’s addictive new crime anthology series, True Detective, has claimed another victim: Vampire Diariesstar Nina Dobrev (Elena). Apparently, she spent the weekend binge-watching the drama starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson as homicide detectives. Check out her recent status.
“‘True Detective’ is taking over my life. Can't sleep til I finish. #BingeWatching,” Nina tweeted over the weekend, presumably in-between episodes of the series. Tell us about it, Nina. We used to get stuff done — like laundry and eating. Now, we spend all of our time watching, discussing, and analyzing True Detective. We assume you’ll soon have to quit TVD to do this full-time. It’s just how this show consumes.
We hope Nina has HBO on her television. Otherwise, she might have had some trouble catching last night’s season finale right away. So many people logged onto the HBO Go website to watch the final installment in the eight-episode season that the site crashed. HBO released a statement this morning, saying: "Due to overwhelming interest in the season finale of True Detective, HBO Go was hit with an excessive amount of traffic soon after 9 p.m. ET last night. The issue has since been rectified and the service is now back to normal." Phew.
Have you been watching True Detective? Are you surprised Nina’s a fan? Sound off in the comments below!
Catch the next episode of The Vampire Diaries on Thursday, March 13 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
