Fans are waiting for Nina Dobrev's return in "The Vampire Diaries" season 8. Unfortunately, recent reports claim that the actress has refused to reprise her role as Elena Gilbert. On the other hand, Kristen Stewart is rumored to be guesting in the show.
According to reports, Nina Dobrev won't be Damon's (Ian Somerhalder) love interest in the upcoming series installment. Previous reports suggest that the actor doesn't want to act alongside Dobrev. Somerhalder's wife Nikki Reed reportedly hated her husband doing love scenes with Dobrev and even threatened for a divorce.
News on Dobrev's comeback and reunion of the Elena and Damon love team on "The Vampire Diaries" season 8, the series' finale, surfaced when a cast member posted a photo on instagram which depicts a scene with Somerhalder and a girl who resembles the actress.
In place of Dobrev, the production is rumored to be bringing a big name in the series, Kristen Stewart, who is expert in playing vampire with her previous role of Bella in the "Twilight" trilogy.
However, the production is yet to confirm the reports or if there are really negotiations for Stewart's appearance. There are also no official details yet on what her role will be. A new love team with Damon will be hard to pull off unless Elena's character had a body swap.
