Amid the speculations about the marital chaos between Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed, rumors are rife that Reed has replaced the Bulgarian actress Nina Dobrev on the supernatural show “The Vampire Diaries.”

Nikki Reed’s new character

A new character Sybil, enacted by Reed, will reportedly be introduced in the series. She will be portraying the role of Damon Salvatore's (Ian Somerhalder) love interest. The role of Sybil has been introduced after Somerhalder's ex-girlfriend, Dobrev denied taking up the role of Elena Gilbert any further.

Why Nina Dobrev not coming back?

It is believed that Dobrev might not be returning to the series due to her prior film commitments.

However, series creator Julie Plec really wants Dobrev to join the series again for the final season. According to Plec, Dobrev had made a promise to her in the past that she would return if the series comes to an end. Plec is really hoping that the actress might keep up to her words.  

Dobrev still needed

Her comeback was planned to save the dwindling ratings of the mystical series. Things between the real life couple Somerhalder and Reed turned up ugly when reports about Dobrev's comeback surfaced in the limelight. The duo was on the verge of getting divorced. If reports are to be believed, then Dobrev turned out to be a savior for Somerhalder and Reed's marriage by canceling her comeback.
