Last year, Nina Dobrev (Elena on “The Vampire Diaries”) admitted she was reluctant to embark on a relationship with someone she works with. She confessed, “I didn’t want to be dating one of my co-stars – my goal on the show was to be professional. But sometimes you can’t help who you have a connection with, and you can only fight it for so long – which I did for a really, really long time”.
She was, of course, talking about her relationship with Ian Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore on “The Vampire Diaries”). They pair went public with their romance in 2011.
But after dating for more than three years, they’ve decided to end their relationship. It was claimed that the TV stars were leading different lives and growing apart from each other. And it seems like the 34-year-old vampire hunk was just a tad affected by it when he took to Twitter to express himself:
A source told US weekly, “They are consummate professionals. They will continue to work together and remain best friends, which is where the relationship started”. We also hear that they duo is determined not to let the break up affect their working relationship and will remain best friends.
We’re still reeling from shock. Will it change the onscreen chemistry that they currently have? What do you “The Vampire Diaries” fans think?
