Mother dating vampire

Dobrev portrayed the "conniving" Katherine as well, who is opposite of Elena.
Plec said: "That felt obviously too soon, and rushed, and we didn’t want to make a show about a teenage girl who instantly becomes a vampire.
In the books, Elena was blonde, popular, selfish and a "mean girl".
However the show's producers, Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson, felt that it wasn't the direction they wanted to go with their heroine in The Vampire Diaries television series.
She took the cure and became human again towards the end of the sixth season.
In the finale of the sixth season, Kai linked Elena to Bonnie's life by magic.
In late 2016, when it was announced that the eighth season would be the final season, Dobrev was in talks about returning to the television series to reprise her role in the final episode. Dobrev's return was confirmed on January 26, 2017, via an Instagram post.
