The Teen Choice Awards was emotional for Nina Dobrev. She made her last appearance on the stage to accept the award for Choice TV Actress Sci-Fi/Fantasy for her acting as Elena in ‘The Vampire Diaries.’ She left the show at the end of the last season, opting not to renew her contract, so it made her award and appearance bittersweet last night.
Nina gave a great acceptance speech, however, talking about change.
The last few months have been a big change for me. Change. It’s a scary word, or I used to think that, because it meant new beginnings. New beginnings with a future that was unknown.
But change is necessary. Necessary for you to grow up and learn and to better yourself, becauase everything in life comes to an end. As this chapter of my life comes to an end, I look back at it with a grateful heart, and I smile, because just like my character Elena, I started the show as a young girl, and together we grew up. We’ve grown up and over the last six years we’ve become women.”
Isn’t that such a key thing that teens- and even adults- have to learn, remember, and accept?
Watch Nina’s entire speech below. It has a funny, and very symbolic, start, before getting a little more serious. Watch her acceptance speech below.
