It’s no secret that Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev (Elena) is one of the cutest people ever. Whether she’s bike riding with her friends, playing not one but two characters on her hit CW show, or rocking the red carpet, she always finds a way to make things fun and adorable.

To celebrate the October 3 premiere of TVD Season 5, Nina got goofy and posed in a huge picture frame with new co-star Kendrick Sampson (Jesse), making the photo almost 3D as she stuck her hand out toward the camera. Making an almost duck face and holding her fedora on her head, she looked too cute for words.

“2 days left!!!! #TVD #TVDS5 #tvdfamily #KendrickSampson #JesseTVD,” Kendrick captioned the pic on October 1. Now the countdown is only one day away, so hopefully another photo will surface soon.

In addition to Nina and Kendrick’s photo, we saw Steven R. McQueen pose shirtless to celebrate the two-day mark, looking sexy at the Atlanta set. If only they had all been together in one picture. It may have broken the internet, but it would be worth it, right?

Now that the Vampire Diaries premiere is only a day away, maybe the whole cast will get together for an epic picture. Fingers crossed! If not, we thankfully can celebrate solo — TVD Season 5 and its spin-off, The Originals, both premiere tomorrow, October 3 at 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. respectively.

What do you think of Nina and Kendrick’s pic? Are you excited to meet Jesse this season? Sound off below!
