Nina Dobrev Did Not Like Her The Vampire Diaries Co-Star Paul Wesley
Nina Dobrev was not fond of her The Vampire Diaries co-star Paul Wesley.
Stefan Salvatore and Elena Gilbert were hands down one of the most loved pairs on The Vampire Diaries. Played by Paul Wesley and Nina Dobrev, the couple never struggled to offer us proper love goals, even when the duo split up and Elena left Stefan for his older brother Damon.
The two still appeared quite pleasant in each other's company that the actress caught her fans by surprise when she claimed the pair didn't get along while shooting the series.

The show was first aired on TV in 2009 and continued for 8 seasons. Although Paul remained in the series until the very end, Nina bid farewell to the show in season 6. The two characters were paired in the first three seasons and exchanged flawless chemistry.

Although Stelena didn't end up together in the end, their relationship remained one of the core tenets of the show. While together they brought us a truly classic love storyline that we can't quit gushing over. In 2019, however, Nina admitted she didn't like Paul initially. The actress revealed:
Paul and I didn't get along at the beginning of the show. I respected Paul Wesley; I didn't like Paul Wesley. We really just didn’t get along for the first maybe five months of shooting.
Speaking of Paul, she acknowledged they shared great chemistry and that people would always wonder if she was dating the star. But it wasn't even close to being the case as she claimed they weren't fond of each other in the first few months of filming.
I remember everyone would walk up to me after the show aired and they'd be like, 'Are you and Paul dating in real life? Because everyone thought that we had such good chemistry. We despised each other so much, that it read as love.
The 31-year-old continued, “We ended up getting to a good place and it was fine. Of everyone, I think I probably see him the most and hang out with him the most. We’re probably the closest. It’s so funny how time changes everything because I never thought he would be one of my best friends."
Much to the delight of fans, the duo appears to have kissed and made up. Just last week, while self-isolating at her home, the 31-year-old actress took to her Instagram story and claimed she's missing her former co-star. She shared two photos alongside Paul and said, "Miss you buddy @PaulWesley."
The actors began their journey together in the series and have gotten really close ever since. The 37-year-old actor responded by putting a screenshot of Nina's story on his feed and wrote, "miss you too Dobreva" with heart emojis.
