Nina Dobrev is an actress and model. She is known for starring in the series The Vampire Diaries.

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.

A picture of Nina with her father can be seen here. A picture of Nina with her mother and brother can be seen here.

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.

    Hem. Chrissy, I’m sorry but you’re wrong when you say french people have a darker-colored skin than bulgarian people … Most french people are light-skinned sometimes even paled-skinned. I know it because I’m French and I’m white light-skinned. Nina Dobrev is indeed white caucasian, as european people are, as french, english, german people are. But we can say she has an olive-skin. But seriously, these conversation becomes quite ridiculous, do you really have to yell and argue for nothing ?

    Wow, um ok? Everyone that doesnt agree with me then thats ok. But oringinally gypsies came from Egypt and India and Ethopia, therefore she could have came from any of those. Also she is not white, please lets not try to focus on skin tone just look at hair facial features.

      Ok, i personally am Bulgaria- are you saying that i’m not white, because i have the same skin tone and hair as her, or just because you are ignorant as fuck… I’m glad that there are people like you who finally told me that i’m black or asian- good to know…

    • DK1x says:

      There are also Romanian gypsies and Irish gypsies. Although Irish people don’t like to be called gypsies. They prefer to be called “Travelers”. Don’t just focus on facial features but also the mentality and diseases in her family. Like for example Tay-sachs disease is disproportionately high among Jews then white non-Jews.

    Hey Guys Calm Down nina is not White and her colour isnt black or very Dark she is Tan Or Olive Who Cares about nina’s Colour as long as she is Talented ,Cute, Caring and funny with a Sexy Body then she is liked

    • Ariana decir-gracias! says:

      She is white. People from bulgaria are white. Who says white people MUST be pale skinned and blue eyed? Thats a stereotype and should make you feel dumb for thinking it!

      BTW Im darker then nina and guess what? Im white!

      • Hate Me says:

        This site says you have to be pale, blonde, and have blue eyes to be white. You also have to be as “pure” as the driven snow.

        Just look at Daniel’s comment on Megan Fox’s page. According to him, only Swedes and Danes are white.
