Nina Dobrev may be best known for her role as Elena Gilbert on The Vampire Diaries, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t take her gig as the face of shampoo line Lux seriously. The Canadian actress was in Beijing last week to shoot a commercial for the Asia-based product, showing off some serious leg in the process. Check out the photos!


If the number of WhoSay photos is any indication, Nina seemed to have a great time filming the shampoo commercial. In this pic of Nina in a black leather mini-dress and high heels, the TVDer is pointing playfully at the camera as a stylist fixes her hair. And how adorable is this selfie Nina took of herself as her team of stylists/enthusiastic hair fans crowd around? “Stylin' profilin'. Getting styled by THE ULTIMATE hair stylist. @Riawnacapri look at your audience ... You've got a crowd of fans!” Nina captioned the pic.

Nina is the official face of Lux, which entails the occasional visit to Asia to film your stereotypical hair commercial. The actress seems to enjoy the experience, even past the photo shoot. These photos of Nina in the Daily Mail “hamming it up” are probably the best thing ever. They show Nina on stage at a promotional event for the shampoo, fluffing her hair dramatically into the air with a big smile on her face. This is why we love Nina and why she is so good at her job: she totally commits to every role.
