After the news of her departure from The Vampire Diaries, actress Nina Dobrev is kicking back on the June 2015 cover of Self Magazine. Dobrev goes air born for the photo shoot, opting for colorful activewear paired with an equally colorful pair of New Balance 574s from the brand's Pop Tropical collection. Discussing her final season on The Vampire Diaries, the 26 year-old actress is reflective: “It’s important for me that it be epic and powerful. I feel like I’m a completely different person than I was and I’ve grown so much. It’s been a big part of my life, and I want it to be beautiful. I want it to end well.”

She continues, “I’ve loved working on this show. It’s been such a crazy, awesome adventure, and I’ve been surrounded by so many people who I consider family. I know this is a new exciting step in the right direction for me, but it’s going to be so strange not to be with them.” Read more on Self.com.
