'Vampire Diaries' Star Nina Dobrev's New Movie...With Emma Watson!
She already plays two roles on "The Vampire Diaries," but Nina Dobrev is about to add another role to her resume: the CW star is set to appear in the upcoming movie adaptation of "The Perks of Being a Wallflower."
"Wallflower" is based off Stephen Chbosky's novel, which follows the tumultuous life of a high school sophomore. Dobrev will be playing the role of Candace, one of the major roles in the story. Other actors signed on for the film include "Harry Potter" star Emma Watson and "Percy Jackson" star Logan Lerman. Paul Rudd has also been rumored to be on board.
Dobrev is mostly known for her TV roles in "The Vampire Diaries" and "Degrassi: The Next Generation," but she has appeared in some films of late as well: she made an appearance in "The Roommate" and recently wrapped on the upcoming thriller "The Killing Game" with Samuel L. Jackson.
Lerman, meanwhile, had a breakout performance in "3:10 to Yuma" that later lead to his role as Percy Jackson and his role in "Gamer." Lerman is set to appear in the upcoming "The Three Musketeers" remake as D'Artagnan.
"The Perks of Being a Wallflower" looks to be Emma Watson's first project after the release of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2," so a good turn in this one could help shape her career going forward and help her put Hermione behind her.
