"We expected the rumors. Like, if I wasn't dating Ian, I'd be dating Paul [Wesley]," Dobrev, 22, tells the April issue of Teen Vogue. "A lot of people who work together end up dating, so it wouldn't be unusual, but I've never dated anyone I've worked with."

"When I signed on to the show, I didn't know whether I'd be playing both girls. And while it's been cool, it's also exhausting because it's double the work," she says. "You invest so much of your heart and soul and energy into making even one character. It's like doing two movies at once."
