Hollywood actor Nina Dobrev, best known for portraying ‘ Elena Gilbert’ and ‘Katherine Pierce’ in The CW’s ‘The Vampire Diaries‘ lost her grandmother on December 20; after a day, to deliver the devastating news, she posted through her verified Instagram account a heartfelt homage devoted to granny.
Dobrev returned to her home country Bulgaria to see her beloved grandmother for the last time and shared a series of photos with her, which were taken in granny’s bed, in Sofia. Alongside the photos, the actor wrote:
“Last night a chapter ended. My heart hurts.”

Dobrev stated that she “had the rare ability to say goodbye” and admitted that she and her family were not afforded that luxury:
“That doesn’t make any of this easier, but through the tears, I can appreciate that silver lining. Thank you for hanging on as long as you did, I know it wasn’t easy for you at the end but I’ll cherish those last moments we shared together forever.”
The 31-year-old concluded her tribute by saying she loves her “Babi” and will carry her in her heart for as long as it beats.
