15 Roles We Want to See Nina Dobrev Take on After ‘Vampire Diaries’

Elena Gilbert has been a vital part of our lives for more than eight years, but now that it’s time to move on (for reals, this time) from The Vampire Diaries, Nina Dobrev has a bright Hollywood career ahead of her.

We can’t wait to see her on the big screen and even back on the small one. She could slay any role, but in particular, we want to see her in these 15 parts.

Some of Nina’s best moments are when she plays Katherine Pierce, aka Katerina Petrova, in flashbacks all the way back in the 1490s in Bulgaria and England.

She brought that time period to life, and we know Nina could slay in the late 15th century again, alongside major players like Leonardo daVinci, Christopher Columbus, and Copernicus.

The wonderful beautiful @ninadobrev #freediving with a school of over 22 sharks with marine conservation photographer & shark expert @juansharks of @oneoceandiving www.oneoceandiving.com #pelagicshark #sharkresearch and #sharkconservation program in #hawaii #oahu Nina impressed me so much, with her enthusiasm, fun, down-to-earth, live life to the fullest personality but what I really admire was her kindness & respect of the sharks the ocean and concern for their plight and willingness to even volunteer to help speak up for them & help raise awareness. Aloha with fellow divers & friends @hillaryharley @cheeklane @markkassen @adamjlock & @k21harris Right now is such a critical tipping point for sharks with such low populations and they have little to no protection still. They need all the help they can get if we are going to save them. Please join us & #helpsavesharks They are vital components to healthy balanced marine ecosystems, the ocean, & environment. #speakupforthosewithoutavoice #savesharks #savetheocean #waterinspired @waterinspired stop #sharkfishing ban #sharkfinsoup #NinaDobrevFreedivingwithsharks #freediveforsharks #marineconservation #sharkresearchandconservation #happyhawaii???? #internationalsharkproject #helpsavesharks

Nina lives an action-filled life IRL, so it only makes sense that she should be in a stunt-filled, wild action movie where she gets to jump out of planes, swim with sharks, and other things she has done for real.

It seems like a no-brainer that a Disney princess slash zombie-slaying story will eventually get made in Hollywood, and fans have already been dying to see Nina in the role of Reeve Ankh, a girl who eventually becomes a doctor taking care of zombie slayers.

We’d love to see Nina back in her home country for a movie, because it’s clear she loves her country and would be able to show it to all her fans back here in North America.

Nina is obsessed with La La Land, and she even threw herself a themed party for it! Put her in a musical — we promise we’ll watch!

Growing up, Nina was competitive in rhythmic gymnastics and it’s clear she still has that athletic bone in her body. She should be in a movie like Blue Crush or Bend It Like Beckham that celebrates badass female athletes.

Nina has acted in a lot of dark roles, but boy is she funny. She should get a shot in a female ensemble comedy like Bridesmaids to show her lighter side.

We know Nina has the acting chops, though she hasn’t always gotten the chance to showcase them. In a quieter, independent movie, she can really explore her dramatic skills.

Fans have already dream-casted Nina in the (still in-development) movie adaptation of Victoria Aveyard’s smash hit YA novel Red Queen. We know she would kill in the main role of Mare, who has rare magical powers.

IRL, Nina is one of the most notorious pranksters on set of The Vampire Diaries and other projects. We’d love to see her have a little fun and play a prankster in some kind of wild prank war movie.

Zombies and vampires are very different monsters, but slaying of them isn't too different. Maybe Nina can take some ideas from her onscreen brother Jeremy and get some zombie killing skills.

Nina captivated us as young mother Mia on Degrassi, and we’d love to see her bring that maternal love to the screen again.

It’s a small role, but it’s a scene-stealing one. If Nina can channel some of that Katherine energy, she can play the Ursula-transforming villain in the upcoming live-action The Little Mermaid and absolutely steal the show.

Did you know that Nina speaks French fluently? Let’s see her show off those skills and star in a movie set in France with loads of romance.

Wonder Woman is set to be the next big DC superhero franchise and Nina would be so great in the role of Donna Troy, Wonder Woman’s younger sister and member of the Teen Titans.
