Nina Dobrev to Get Her Angst on in The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Pretty Pic of the Day: Nina Dobrev and Kate Walsh Give Kissy Faces on the 'Perks' Set

Nina Dobrev (Elena/Katherine) is bringing the drama for her new movie, The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Dobrev was cast as Candace — the sister of the angsty protagonist, Charlie — in the adaptation of the oft-banned, sex-and-drugs-filled novel and recently told E! about her dramatic character and her magical costar, Emma Watson.

For those of you worried about Emma’s first role post Harry Potter, Nina assures fans that Ms. Hermione Granger has it covered. "I think they're going to be excited to see her in something else," says Nina. "And see her spread her wings and try different things. It's always exciting to see someone you love do something different and see a different side of them." Speaking of which, Dobrev herself is slipping into a very different persona from the one we see on The Vampire Diaries.

"My character is a victim of abuse," Dobrev says. "So she's abused, and [my brother] Charlie [played by Logan Lerman] witnesses that. That's kind of my drama of the movie."

Sounds like Dobrev will probably have to channel Elena (she’s been a victim more times than we count!) and the evil Katherine to conquer this role.
