Nina Dobrev has portrayed three different roles on Vampire Diaries – Elena, Katherine and Amara.
Now she’s reportedly headed to the show’s spin-off, The Originals, to play yet another character – Tatia.
The character, which was first mentioned during the third season of Vampire Diaries, will be featured on the second season of the CW series.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Originals executive producer Michael Narducci recently shared some interesting details about the highly anticipated new season.
He revealed Dobrev’s character will appear in the fifth episode this season. The episode will revisit the time of the Vikings.
“Nina Dobrev got to be in scenes with both of our leads, both Daniel [Gillies] and Joseph [Morgan],” Narducci said.
“We tell a story that will make you understand her fate, what happened to her, her relationship with both brothers and why what happened between her and the two brothers is so beautiful but also tragic.”
Dobrev also weighed in with some details about Tatia. She explained how the character differs from the three doppelgangers she portrayed on Vampire Diaries.
“I feel like she’s the purest of them all because she is the original original doppelganger,” Dobrev insisted. “She doesn’t have anyone that proceeded her that affects her life and that she has to live up to or whose history will haunt her in the future, so she has no preconceived notions,” she said.
“She doesn’t have all the vampire drama before her existence, so she’s just pure love and hope and innocence in a way … until things get complicated, as they always do,” she explained.

So, will any other characters be leaving Mystic Falls, VA to visit New Orleans, or vice versa? Narducci revealed there’s a slim chance of that happening, but it’s not totally impossible.
“It doesn’t feel like there’s an easy way to make people drop what they’re doing in Mystic Falls and come to New Orleans,” he said.
“And certainly, once our storylines get rolling, it’s going to be very obvious that it will to be very impossible for our characters to take a vacation and go to Mystic Falls, but we are always looking, if it makes sense for story, to honor the fact that this is a shared universe.”
The Originals airs on Mondays at 8 p.m. on The CW!
