In the “xXx” film, Dobrev plays Becky, a CIA weapons specialists who supplies the main character, Xander (Vin Diesel), with helpful gadgets that help him survive during battles with enemies.
Rose plays a sharpshooter who goes by Wolff and uses her skills to help Xander out. Meanwhile, Padukone plays his love interest and a villain who struggles to determine what is right and what is wrong and which side she should be fighting for.
Dobrev and Rose seemingly got close while shooting the movie in 2016 and were even engaged in a prank war while on set which included scaring one another and redecorating the other’s trailer.
Dobrev’s role in the film was just one of several that she has landed since leaving The CW series “The Vampire Diaries” in 2015. At the time, the actress spoke with The Hollywood Reporter to explain her exit for the series which wrapped in March.
“I just knew I wanted to go on this journey with these characters, and their lives…it’s a vampire show. It’s been a great journey, but at the end of the day, I’m not actually a vampire. The fairy tale has to end, and the next chapter has to begin. I knew this was my time, and I’m excited for the next step,” Dobrev told the publication.
The actress explained that although her success off the show isn’t guaranteed, the uncertainty makes her exit worthwhile. “Anything for the first time, the unknown, the fear, those are all emotions that are so exciting, ultimately. I love that feeling, and I really want to feel that again,” she explained.
“That’s why I’m excited about this next chapter: I have no idea what’s going to happen, and that means anything can happen. That’s what’s most exciting to me — the prospect of anything,” Dobrev stated.
Following her exit from the series, Dobrev went on to land roles in “The Final Girls,” “Workaholics” and upcoming films “Flatliners” and “Departures.”
