Stars share their lives
AT 24, actress Nina Dobrev is the envy of young women the world over. She has a role on the hit TV series The Vampire Diaries, a gorgeous guy to call her boyfriend (co-star Ian Somerhalder) and a killer body (fashion magazines are lining up to feature her on their cover).
Galaxie takes a closer look at the young star’s life on and off the set of the small screen show in the new issue which hits newsstands today.
Dobrev reveals that she is relishing the idea of getting to play two different characters – Elena and Katherine – on the show.
“There is never a dull day, and the great thing about television is that it’s not two hours where you have a beginning, middle and an end, and you only see one character and one thing they go through. Fortunately, these characters get to grow.”
When she’s not busy acting or spending time with her man, Dobrev makes “vision boards” (with lines like “Learn. Excel. Exceed.”) to motivate herself, and she loves to cook. Oh, and did you know she was once a competitive gymnast?

Also in the new issue, Jason Statham talks about his latest movie project, Parker, Halle Berry puts her personal drama aside to chat about Cloud Atlas and readers can test their celebrity fragrance knowledge with the magazine’s fun quiz.
Plus, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation’s Elisabeth Shue divulges to Galaxie that she’s “squeamish about dead bodies” in a conference call while Malaysia-born Sarah Lian tells the mag about her budding acting career, including her stint on TV’s Covert Affairs.
