Nina Dobrev might be making fans jealous with all of her recent vacation photos, but she’s still putting in some hard work. The “Vampire Diaries” alum revealed that she is still keeping fit by exercising before she hits the pool.
In a video posted to her Twitter on Sunday, the actress was working out with trainer Lissa Bankston before jumping into a pool in her workout clothes. The video, which plays in reverse, is set to the Beach Boys’ classic “Kokomo.”

It looks like Dobrev took a trip to the Bahamas with Bankston as well as NOBREAD.com founder Nicole Cogan. The trio seemed to have a fun girls weekend in the tropical locale and did plenty of swimming. Cogan and Dobrev both shared pool photos while Bankston showed the three of them jumping off a boat into the ocean.
“Had a blast with these beautiful, bold, smart, funny and fearless chicks,” Bankston wrote in her caption.
Dobrev knew her photos were likely to make fans envious, but that didn’t stop her from posting. “This looks like the kind of photo that annoyingly cute, impossibly happy couples take on vacation,” Dobrev noted.
The weekend trip is a much-deserved vacation for Dobrev. After promoting “xXx: The Return of Xander Cage” and returning to “The Vampire Diaries” for the series finale, the actress has been busy filming new movies.
She recently completed filming on the drama “Crash Pad,” a story of a man who falls for an older woman and is disappointed to learn that he’s actually part of her extramarital affair. Her next flick, “Departures,” is currently in production. That drama will follow a hypochondriac airport baggage handler (Asa Butterfield) who helps a terminally ill teenager (Maisie Williams) fulfill her bucket list. Judging by Dobrev’s photos from the set, it seems she’s playing a flight attendant. Neither flick has a definite release date yet.
This fall, Dobrev will be back on the movie promotion circuit. She’ll be supporting her movie “Flatliners.” The thriller is a remake of the 1990 movie starring Julia Roberts and Kevin Bacon. Dobrev plays one of several med students who decide to stop each other’s hearts. Seeing the other side is thrilling, but it comes with consequences.
Dobrev and her co-stars, which includes Ellen Page, Diego Luna and Kiersey Clemons, took their roles pretty seriously. They even received medical training before playing the future doctors.
“I thought it was really fun to work on this film,” Dobrev told Fandango. “We went through three weeks of medical training with real medical technicians, and learned about defibrillators, and how to resuscitate people. What those steps are. It was really informative.”
The actress seems pretty happy with her new skill set. “I don’t want to sound cocky and say that I could bring someone back to life in real life, but I could definitely now keep them alive long enough until the real professionals came to save the day,” she added.
“Flatliners” is scheduled to hit theaters Sept. 29.
