Nina Dobrev has been rumored to be wanting to join “The Walking Dead” after the actress shared a photo of her and TWD star Norman Reedus on Instagram.
The former “Vampire Diaries” actress has also been linked with Reedus, who portrays Daryl Dixon in the zombie TV show.
The speculations started when the pair were seen together during the American Music Awards and their photo was posted on social media, Vine Report noted.
Many also speculated that this is Dobrev’s way to get another role on television since her career did not do well after she left TVD.
Celebrity Dirty Laundry noted that since Reedus plays a huge role in the series, Dobrev may have the chance to be cast in the AMC hit series.
If an actor impresses Reedus, he would “puts in a good word for you,” CDL wrote.
However, Gossip Cop slammed the rumors through its exclusive confirmation and calls the rumor a “complete nonsense.”
The site explained that Nina and Norman’s photo did not clearly say the actress has joined “The Walking Dead.” It added that even if Reedus plays a huge role in the AMC series, it is still be the casting agents, producers, and the network that Dobrev should be impressing and not the actor.
Dobrev played Elena Gilbert for six seasons on TVD before she left citing that she wanted to explore a career in movies. But rumors indicated that Dobrev actually left the show because working with her ex-boyfriend, Ian Somerhalder, was too difficult.
Since Nina left the show on season six, the show’s ratings slid significantly. Ratings dropped by 33% in season seven.
There are speculations that Somerhalder is also in panic after TVD was moved to Friday time slot starting in January 2016.
Somerhalder also previously hinted that season seven may be the last of TVD.
Some fans also speculated that it is possible that Ian’s character Damon will be killed off from the show since Elena no longer has an active role in the series.
