At 23 years old, Canadian actress Nina Dobrev has already learned how to navigate the dicey waters of Hollywood. She has big dreams for her career and isn’t afraid to share them.
As she told Ocean Drive magazine, “I want to do a little bit of everything. My dream role is to do a James Bond film, or if they did another Lara Croft, or even a prequel to Lara Croft, I’d want to do that, to get it out of my system. Do you know the play ‘August: Osage County’?”
The actress also knows how to separate things and see the glass as half full instead of half empty. After all, while she has pretended to be intimate on film, she hasn’t shown her lady bits, which makes her parents very happy. “It’s almost like being a character: I’ve done movies where there are simulated sex scenes, so they understand, but it’s always kind of awkward. They say things like, ‘Oh, you look great. That’s interesting.’ I always pride myself on the fact that I’ve gotten this far without taking my clothes off.”
