There are plenty of characters on The Vampire Diaries, but for Nina Dobrev, there are only two characters that are helping her learn new things about herself — but who are the lucky two?

It should come as no surprise that Nina is most connected to the two characters she portrays: Elena Gilbert and her doppelganger Katherine Pierce. Nina says she has “learned a lot and discovered a lot” about herself after playing these very different ladies.

"They bring out different parts of me and I have to go to different places," Nina told Digital Spy. "I can relate to both of them in many ways, and in many ways not. I'm learning a lot from them and I'm learning from their mistakes as well. It's just made me more confident and OK with myself. And I can walk in heels really well."

This season will definitely be interesting and offer Nina even more room to grow as a person and as an actress. Elena is headed off to Whitmore College and will have so many new experiences — not to mention a long-distance relationship with Damon — and Katherine is, shockingly, a human now!

We can’t wait to see where Nina’s characters head this season.
