“Vampire Diaries” cast member Nina Dobrev plays a double role, starring as both nice girl Elena Gilbert and ruthless vampire Katherine Pierce.

While in character she’s has conquered love triangles, werewolves, vampires and assorted supernatural activities.

To celebrate her 23rd birthday off-camera, Dobrev really stirred things up – in the kitchen.

Dobrev, whose film credits include roles in “The Roommate,” with Leighton Meester and Minka Kelly and “Chloe,” with Julianne Moore, Amanda Seyfried and Liam Neeson, joined the culinary experts at Le Cordon Bleu Atlanta to ring in the big 2-3 this past weekend.

LE CORDON BLEU COLLEGE OF CULINARY ARTS NINA DOBREV

With Le Cordon Bleu’s help she was able to learn the art of cooking with seafood and truffles and prepared a five-course meal for a group of friends.

She’s shown at left with the finished product, a lovely presentation of seared salmon and tuna salad.

Happy birthday Nina!

That surprises me, Wesley. I’ve spoke with her and Ian Somerhalder before and they both seemed especially friendly.
