Nina Dobrev knows that her latest role in xXx: Return of Xander Cage is unlike any she’s ever tackled, and that’s exactly why she was so motivated to score the part.

The former star of The Vampire Diaries recently sat down with Bustle where she opened up about why she was so excited to play the slightly clumsy Becky Clearidge on the big screen.

“I feel like it’s a departure for me,” explained Dobrev. “I’m trying to really change my perception and have people see me in a different light, in a multitude of characters going forward.”

Fans of The Vampire Diaries are well aware of Dobrev’s acting prowess— after all, Dobrev played a multitude of different characters during her time on the series including a human, a doppleganger, and of course, a vampire. Even so, we’re incredibly pleased to hear that Dobrev is setting out to show the world everything she’s capable of.

Regardless of whether or not Dobrev returns for the big Vampire Diaries finale, we’re sure we’re not the only ones excitedly waiting to hear about what she does next!
