Actress Nina Dobrev has her own volleyball court on film and TV sets so she can work out in between takes.
The 28-year-old beauty recently wrapped her return to hit TV show The Vampire Diaries for the finale and is currently in the middle of shooting upcoming movie Departures, alongside Maisie Williams and Asa Butterfield, and with such a busy schedule, Nina has little time for the gym – so she tries to ensure exercise equipment is available to her on set.
“Me and my girlfriend, who I work with a lot on set, do challenges every single day during our lunch break,” Nina told Teen Vogue. “We’ll do reverse lunges and planks to see how long we can go before someone gives up. I even asked one of the producers if he could build us a volleyball court and they did.”
Meanwhile, Nina is being kept busy at home after adopting a puppy she has named Maverick Dogbrev.
Hi. My name is Maverick Do(g)brev. I like long walks on the beach and candle lit dinners in doggie bowls. I have a brother named Goose and we're both 9 weeks old. I keep hearing the giants around us say that we're half Border Collie half Aussie Shepard, but I guess we won't know for sure until we get a DNA test. We stayed at this hotel called @the_pet_care_foundation for a little while, and it wasn't too bad, but I'm SO much happier where I am now. I have a yard, and toys, and a new mommy. Don't tell her I said this, but I find it strange she has no fur anywhere except for her head. But she always rubs my tummy and showers me with love, so her lack of hair doesn't bother me too much. Goose and I still get to play all the time since my auntie @cheeklane fostered him until he finds a forever home, so that's cool too. I'm really hoping someone in their friend circle keeps him so we can continue to hang out because I love him very much. Mommy said that if it wasn't for @puppyluvla she wouldn't have found me, so I'd like to send a special Wuff Wuff to them. And to @the_pet_care_foundation for sheltering us until mommy came to rescue us. We appreciated all the food you gave us while we stayed with you. Anyway, mom's calling, she doesn't love it when I'm on social media too much, especially when it's so sunny and beautiful out.. she says I need to get more vitamin D. Whatever that is. She's already trying to teach me tricks, and I love to impress her, so I'm going to go show her how smart I am. I'll take some videos so you can see how smart I am too. Did I mention I'm super smart? Oh, and I'm the cutest puppy in the world. That's what my mommy says. Puppy Love, Maverick 🐶❤️
