Actress Nina Dobrev says she left popular TV show “Vampire Diaries” to avoid being typecast and to take big risks.
In an interview with Rogue magazine, the 28-year-old actress opened up about the reason behind her decision to quit the show, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
Dobrev said, "I wanted to prove everyone wrong who said I would play this one role my whole life or be stuck playing younger roles. I've always wanted to take big risks. I started “Vampire Diaries” when I was 20. I grew with the show and I wanted to continue to grow outside of it. Mentally, it was a crazy time. I was 27 when I left the show. I was ready to do something different."
Dobrev will next be seen in the reboot of cult 1990 film “Flatliners”, which is about medical students experimenting with near-death experiences. She says the appeal of the film was her own curiosity about life after death.
