It looks like The Vampire Diaries and The Originals fans will be getting a little more of Nina Dobrev this season, as the actress is set to cross-over into The Originals‘ world as never-before-seen (but lightly touched upon) character Tatia.
According to E! Online, Nina will be appearing on The Originals‘ November 3 episode as another Petrova doppleganger, whom we haven’t met yet, but was mentioned in an episode in season 3 of The Vampire Diaries.
E! Online spoke with showrunner Julie Plec, who told the E!’s Kristin Dos Santos, “”There was a character’s name introduced a long time ago in season three in association with Klaus [Joseph Morgan] and Elijah [Daniel Gillies] and how they became vampires and a girl that they both loved a long time ago who was the original doppelgänger, Tatia. So Nina Dobrev will be visiting The Originals for a nice little storyline in our fifth episode which airs November 3.””
It also appears as if another love triangle is headed our way. Plec went on to explain that, “”What we remember from The Vampire Diaries, for those who watch both shows, is that [Klaus and Elijah] both loved her, so it’s a little bit of history repeating itself like with Stefan [Paul Wesley] and Damon [Ian Somerhalder],” Plec says. “And then Esther [Alice Evans], their mother, killed her so that she could make Klaus not a hybrid. There’s lots of secrets and scandal and romance and terrible tragedy attached to her character. We’ll get to go back into the past to see how that all played out.””
So between Damon, Stefan, Klaus and Elijah it looks like Nina’s racking up the onscreen love interests. This has to be some kind of record right?
Are you excited about Nina’s upcoming appearance on The Originals?
