I threatened Matt Davis 4 years ago, saying I had a big prank coming. I played the long game, and hit him when he least expected it. Left him with a sweet surprise for his final week of shooting by painting his dressing room Pepto Bismol Pink. And left my signature mark. 🦄 #YOUREWELCOME Love you buddy. #PrankWarsContinue #TVDForever @ImMatthew_Davis

Nominations and Awards
Considering the number of years Nina Dobrev has been around acting along with the number of awards she has won; you will be safe to say she is phenomena.
Dobrev started her career as a decorated actress in 2010 when she won the Teen Choice Award for the Choice TV’s Female Breakout Star category in The Vampire Diaries. Same year, she bagged the Teen Choice Award for the Choice TV Actress (Fantasy/Sci-fic) in the same movie.
She continued with the exploits in 2011 when she won Teen Choice Award for the Choice TV Actress (Fantasy/Sci-fic) again with The Vampire Diaries and got nominated for the Teen Choice Award in Choice Vampire’s category and Choice Female Hottie.
In 2012, she bagged both People’s Choice Award and Teen Choice Award for Favourite TV Drama Actress and Choice TV Actress (Fantasy/Sci-Fic) respectively. Both are for her roles in The Vampire Diaries.
She was nominated for People’s Choice Award as the Favourite Dramatic TV Actress in 2013 but only won Teen Choice Award for Choice TV Actress (Fantasy/Sci-Fic) in The Vampire Diaries. Dobrev also won the Young Hollywood Award for the best threesome in The Vampire Diaries and Teen Choice Award in 2014.

In the same year, she won the Teen Choice Award in the Choice TV Actress Category and was nominated for People’s Choice Award again. Surprisingly, all her awards were received for her roles in the highly successful series, The Vampire Diaries.

Social Media and Snapchat Impacts
Nina Dobrev literarily translated her fame and popularity to her social media engagements. The elegant actress has closed to 6 million followers on the Facebook as at Friday, 10th of February 2017.
That’s beside the over 11 million followers on Instagram and 7 million of followers on Twitter. All these ensure her presence on the social media is massive and conspicuous.
But why I wouldn’t like to be the carrier of bad news, it doesn’t seem that Dobrev has an official Snapchat’s page. Though a lot of her pictures and videos have been shared on Snapchat, with a couple of them looking weird, it doesn’t seem she own any. A 2006 post on her official Twitter page denying her involvement with Snapchat pranks is enough to douse any doubt in anyone’s heart.
Except she came on recently or will be coming on later in the year; none of the many pages sharing Nina Dobrev Snapchat’s pics is officially hers.
But that shouldn’t be bad news. I am sure she’s missing as much as the fans are. Why not ask or invite Dobrev’s official Facebook, Twitter or Instagram page if you really want her around?
