The stories of two love-interest dating off-set are very common. Sometimes, things work out in their favour and sometimes they don’t, but nobody ever talks about what happens after the break-up?

Well, the same is the case with Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder who dated and split up during the shoot of ‘Vampire Diaries‘. How did the duo handle the heat after their break-up? Well, co-star, Claire Holt has something to say on this subject.

HOW WERE NINA AND IAN AFTER THEIR BREAK-UP?
The thought of seeing your partner, with whom you split up, in the same room with you can be heart-wrenching. Then how did Nina and Ian, who dated for almost 3 years, feel while sharing the set with one another? It looks like both Nina and Ian were super professional about their breakup and didn’t let any grudges come in between their work.
Claire Holt, who played the role of Rebekah Mikaelson on ‘Vampire Diaries’, spoke up on this on ‘Dear Media’s Not Skinny But Not Fat’ podcast. She said,
“I was on The Originals at that point so I don’t know the timing. But honestly, they were really—they kept it super professional, it never got weird, like props to them. They did a great job at managing that. But it’s hard like for a lot of people it’s really tough”.
WHY DID NINA LEAVE ‘VAMPIRE DIARIES’?
After season 6, Nina bid goodbye to the show for good. While many believed that the real reason behind her leaving the show had something to do with her breakup from Ian, Nina strongly dismissed the rumours. In an interview with “E News”, Nina opened up and said,
“I’ve said this before, that we didn’t break up because anything bad happened or because there wasn’t love or friendship. I love him and the friendship is still strong and I think he’s great and I care about him. And that didn’t change. Yes, we’re professional and that’s fine. We were friends long before we dated and we still are now”.
Well, we think it was very bold of Nina to come out in the open to set the record straight.
What was the real reason behind Ian and Nina’s breakup?
Now that we know that Nina and Ian are on good terms, a part of us wants to know the real reason behind their break up. According to “US Weekly”, age might have been the reason for their breakup. The magazine’s source revealed,
“I think she decided she wanted to experience other things. The relationship kind of brewed out of a friendship and the fact that they had to get into a romance for the show”.
