'Vampire Diaries' Stars Nina Dobrev and Paul Wesley Reunited IRL
Nina Dobrev had a "serendipitous" reunion Sunday with former Vampire Diaries co-star Paul Wesley.
The 28-year-old actress, who played Elena Gilbert on The CW series, said in an Instagram post that she ran into Wesley, who portrayed Stefan Salvatore, in New York.
Dobrev and Wesley were all smiles in a photo the actress posted on her account. The picture had received over 2.3 million likes as of Monday morning.
"NYC when it's snowing is full of serendipitous run ins and magical reunions. Like this one. #TVDForever #NYCNOW," Dobrev captioned the snapshot.
Dobrev starred as Elena in the first six seasons of The Vampire Diaries, and returned as a guest star in the Season 8 finale. She reacted to the episode, the show's last, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly in March.
"I am satisfied with the way the shows ends -- the fact that Elena finds peace and becomes human, which is what she always wanted," the star said.
Ian Somerhalder talks about the legacy of 'The Vampire Diaries' and what fans can look forward to for the finale.
"She gets to be with the man that she loves, which is what she always wanted," she added, referencing Elena's marriage to Stefan's brother Damon (Ian Somerhalder). "I cried during a lot of moments."
Dobrev will star in a number of upcoming films, including Departures with Maisie Williams. Wesley, meanwhile, will appear in the TV movie Fabled with Zosia Mamet.
