As sassy vixen Katherine Pierce and compassionate Elena Gilbert, Vampire Diaries cast member Nina Dobrev has more than proven that she can handle any supernatural mayhem that’s thrown her way! From toying with the Stefan and Damon’s emotions (as Kat of course) to playing Klaus’ sacrificial doppelganger, Nina definitely has one of the most action-packed roles on television!

So how exactly does Nina feel about all the mind-blowing cliffhangers and incredible character development featured on Vampire Diaries season 3 so far? Luckily for us, Assignment X (a wonderful pop culture destination) got the scoop in their exclusive interview with the lovely Nina!

On which character she loves playing:

AX: Given all of the twists and turns that Elena and Katherine have taken, do you have a favorite between them at this point?

DOBREV: No. I don’t have a favorite, because whenever I get bored with one, the other comes into my life. And I get to play her until I get bored with her, and I get to play the other one. it’s kind of a perfect balance. It’s an ideal situation – I get to do both. I get to be Damon and Stefan. Because Damon’s usually the bad guy and Stefan’s the good guy, and then they switch. So I get to do both. So I’m happy.

On what it’s like to do scenes with “Ripper” Stefan:

AX: Are you having fun playing off the more badass Stefan and perhaps slightly mellower Damon this season?

DOBREV: Yeah, because their roles are definitely reversed. Stefan is now the mean guy and Damon is becoming the hero and as Elena, I get to see both sides and I get to act alongside both of them.
