Is there anything The Vampire Diaries’ Nina Dobrev (Elena/Katherine) can’t do? The 22-year-old Bulgarian beauty has tackled two roles on our favorite vampire show for two seasons (until recently — although we’re still not 100 percent convinced Elena’s centuries-old doppelganger is really dead). But she’s been busy off screen as well, dabbling in philanthropy and stepping into big screen territory with the angsty The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Now Variety is reporting Nina is going behind the camera, directing a short film in early 2012.
Cambio and Killer Digital have partnered together and enlisted several hot young stars — including Pretty Little Liars’ Troian Bellisario, Twilight’s Kellan Lutz, and Kevin Jonas of the Jonas Brothers — to direct and produce short films for Cambio’s fledgling website.
According to producer Christine Vachon, of Boys Don’t Cry and Party Monster fame, "It's a great way for actors to get out of their comfort zone.” Along with the shorts, the site will feature live video chats between Vachon and the newbie filmmakers.
Wonder what Nina will decide to bring to the computer screen (and if she’ll recruit boyfriend Ian Somerhalder to be the star)? We can say with confidence that’s one short we would not want to miss.
