Nina Dobrev Shares Throwback Photos Before Her Final Episode Of 'Vampire Diaries'

Nina Dobrev is understandably getting a little sentimental. After all, it can't be easy to say goodbye to the character she's played for the past six seasons on "The Vampire Diaries," as well as the show's cast and crew.

In honor of the Season 6 finale, which will be the 26-year-old actress' last episode, Dobrev has been taking a walk down memory lane and posting #throwbackthursday photos, every hour on the hour, to count down to tonight's episode.

"It's been 6 amazing years... there have been a million great memories. Thank you to everyone who has joined me on this incredible journey. I love you all.... ❤️Love, Nina. Aka Elena," she captioned the first throwback photo she posted.
