Nina Dobrev is a Canadian actress and model. She is known for starring on the series The Vampire Diaries, and in the films Dog Days, The Final Girls, and Run This Town, among others.
Nina was born in Sofia, Bulgaria, to Bulgarian parents, Michaela (Radeva) and Konstantin Dobrev. When she was two, her family moved to Toronto, Ontario, Canada, where she was raised. She is fluent in English, French, and Bulgarian.
Nina once stated “I’m a Gypsy, what can I say…” It is not clear if she was referring to being of the Romani ethnic group, or to the term “gypsy” as it is sometimes used to refer to lifestyle habits. It appears that Nina often refers to herself as a “gypsy” in this latter way.
Two of Nina’s grandparents are named Aleksandr and Efi.
