‘The Vampire Diaries’ season 5: Nina Dobrev celebrates birthday with Ian Somerhalder, others

Nina Dobrev -Mrs. Carter: Clearly, Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev are still getting along just fine.

Just a matter of days after the two parties celebrated a win at the People’s Choice Awards, and actually admitted publicly that they are no longer together as a couple (which has been very rare for them), “The Vampire Diaries” executive producer Kevin Williamson tweeted out a picture of the two parties at a birthday celebration for Dobrev this week, alongside one of Nina’s best friends in Julianne Hough. Dobrev and Hough have been travel buddies for much of the past year, and have also spent plenty of time making various trips to several beaches.

For Nina and Ian, the two have a great understanding of one simple thing: The entire basis of their job is based on the state of their relationship. If they were to suddenly come across as not enjoying each other’s company, it would impact the show. It’s therefore lucky that they’ve remained so friendly and cordial despite the breakup. There are still quite a few episodes still left to film this season , as “The Vampire Diaries” typically wraps in either April or early May depending on what sort of breaks there are during production. Following that, the two can go back to pursing some of their own interests … which include always seem to include traveling (and we suppose if we were as wealthy as they are we’d be jet setters too!)
