The Vampire Diaries actress Nina Dobrev has been working in Hollywood for many years now, becoming a household name around the world, thanks to the success of the hit The CW television series. What many people do not know about Nina, is that the stunning star was born in Bulgaria and moved to Canada when she was just 2 years old, but her success in the acting industry has been making everyone in Bulgaria very proud.
Dobrev explained, "I've gone back almost every year, since I was little, to visit my grandparents and my family there. It's changed so much over the years, just like Toronto has, but more so because after the wall fell the country had to rebuild itself - I've seen it morph and change in such a beautiful way."
She added, "I get recognised quite a bit in Bulgaria. There have been a lot of amazing people from Bulgaria that are very talented. But I'm one of the few in the entertainment industry of Bulgarian descent and so there's a lot of national pride and love and support. I definitely feel it when I go to visit."
When it comes to her acting career, Nina Dobrev has been focusing more on her movie roles these days, since she brought an end to her time on the hit television series The Vampire Diaries, and it certainly seems to have been a very good decision by the actress, so far. Nina can currently be seen in the movie xXx: Return of Xander Cage, while she will also appear in the new movies Crash Pad, Flatliners, and Departures.
