Nina Dobrev Family
Nina Dobrev was born in Sofia, Bulgaria, on January 9, 1989, to computer expert Konstantin and artist Michaela. Alexander is her only sibling and older brother. Dobrev immigrated to Canada at the age of two and settled in Toronto. She was proficient in the arts, including dance, gymnastics, theatre, music, and visual arts, from an early age. She was an avid traveller who had visited Europe both for pleasure and to compete in international aesthetic gymnastics competitions, in which she represented Canada.
Dobrev has always been interested in acting and views it as a process of perpetual education. She believed that the journey of an actor and the identities he or she develops along the way aid in self-understanding. Modeling jobs led to commercials, which subsequently led to film auditions. She appeared in “Fugitive Pieces,” “Away from Her,” and the popular CTV series “Degrassi: The Next Generation,” which led to a six-season role in “The Vampire Diaries.” She appeared in the 2017 remake of “Flatliners” and the action film sequel “XXX: Return of Xander Cage” after the show’s cancellation. She was also cast in the comedic sitcom “Fam.” Her Netflix release, “Love Hard,” was recently released online.
Dobrev dated American actor Ian Somerhalder for three years before becoming romantically involved with dancer Derek Hough a few months later. Dobrev revealed in an interview that she is a rebel who enjoys skinny-dipping. She also admits to always carrying a swimsuit with her in case she feels the urge to swim. She speaks English, Bulgarian, and a little French fluently.
