Her exit from the show comes at a time when the show itself has lost a number of its regulars, e.g. Tyler (Michael Trevino) aka (everyone’s favorite werewolf), and her on-screen brother, Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) as well as Marguerite MacIntyre’s Sheriff Forbes.

During the six-season run of the show, Dobrev also has played Elena’s doppelgangers’(creepy look-a –likes) Katherine, Amara and Tatia, in addition to serving as the central love interest for on-screen brothers Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder, who also happens to be her real life ex-boyfriend).
Her plans after TVD? Well, she said, via her Instagram post that she is excited to spread her wings, get some rest, travel the world and also take it by storm. What’s a show without its female lead?
VD won’t be the same without Elena.
