If there’s one twist that Vampire Diaries fans never expected, it was having to say goodbye to Nina Dobrev after six years of following Elena Gilbert’s epic love stories with Stefan and Damon Salvatore. And yet, when season 6 came to an end, Dobrev decided not to re-up her contract, therefore saying goodbye to Elena … at least for now.
But it wasn’t just the fans of the show that had to say goodbye to Dobrev. It was also those she worked with every day.
EW has an exclusive sneak peek of a behind-the-scenes video that will be featured on the DVD/Blu-ray release of The Vampire Diaries: The Complete Sixth Season, which hits shelves Sept. 1. In the video, Dobrev’s castmates remember some of their best scenes with the show’s leading lady.
