This is a video tribute I have put together to one of my favourite actresses, the beautiful and extraordinarily gifted Nikolina Konstantinova Dobreva (or just Nina Dobrev for short.) I have been quite captivated by her performance in such television series as "The Vampire Diaries" and "Degrassi" (the latter of which I consider to be to teen dramas what "Star Trek" is to science fiction.) Even when the films in which she plays the roles are themselves not exactly the best, she still manages to shine with her talent.
At least this time the music is more fitting of a tribute video rather than a memorial. In any case, I find that this particular music artist's works fit perfectly for Dobrev, possibly due in part to the geographic proximity of the two individuals' homelands. I also picked it because I tend to see a different side to her than most - beneath all the glitz and glamour, I see a genuinely intelligent young woman who wants nothing more than to make it as a serious dramatic actress, but who feels uneasy about her newfound fame and all that it entails. You may recognize this piece from one of the training scenes from "Chariots of Fire" or from a well-known advertisement for E&J Gallo Wines.
