She may not be an A-list star, but Nina Dobrev has a face that is familiar to anyone who has access to the Internet or a television set.

And the actress has been smart to use her fame in a way that has resulted in her net worth growing even after The Vampire Diaries ended and surpassing that of any of her co-stars on the supernatural show.

Nina Dobrev's fortune is estimated around $15 million as of 2023, according to FilmySiyappa. Here's how the 34-year-old actress made her big bucks.


Of course, Nina Dobrev's main source of income is her acting career. She started it in her teenage years and her very first project was a success. The Canadian coming-of-age drama Degrassi: The Next Generation ran for 14 seasons and was a huge hit. Dobrev played Mia Jones and got her first fans from the show. She also starred alongside Drake, with whom she remained friends. This has undoubtedly provided the actress with many beneficial connections.

Dobrev's most popular role is certainly that of Elena Gilbert in The Vampire Diaries. The actress played the female protagonist in Seasons 1-6, which brought her considerable profits. Dobrev was reportedly paid $40,000 per episode.

In addition to her small screen roles, Dobrev has starred in many movies, some of which, like XXX: Return of Xander Cage and The Perks of Being a Wallflower, earned good money at the box office worldwide. On top of that, the actress undoubtedly got a good salary for appearing in the Netflix Christmas project Love Hard.

Promotional Campaigns

Besides acting, Nina has other sources of income.

The actress has used her fame and celebrity status to strike deals with famous brands such as Dior and Reebok. These deals have certainly contributed greatly to Dobrev's impressive net worth.

The actress also participated in the iconic Got Milk campaign, and her remarkably long and shiny hair helped her land a deal with the Japanese shampoo brand LUX. On top of that, the actress has a whopping 26.3 million followers on Instagram, which allows her to earn big bucks for posting promotional material.


What's more, Nina Dobrev has a business venture that may surprise many fans of The Vampire Diaries. In partnership with longtime friend Julianne Hough, the actress has created a wine brand, Fresh Vine Wine, which sells low-sugar, low-carb, and vegan-friendly wines. The brand has active social media accounts with more than 140,000 followers on Instagram and is clearly a financial success for Hough and Dobrev.
