The actress posted a shot of them making silly faces on set before she left the show for good, showing off the snapshots on Instagram Friday. "#FBF to last week with @IanSomerhalder shooting our final "Damon and Elena" scene. #TVDFamily #PolaroidSeries," she captioned the shot.
Nina also posted another shot of Ian hanging out with more of the Vampire Diaries cast, writing, "#FBF All my #TVD boys... last day on set together! Gonna miss thinking up ways to prank all you hooligans on a daily basis! "Fangs" for the memories! #TVDFamily #PolaroidSeries."
Nina shocked fans earlier this month when she announced that she was officially leaving the hit CW show after starring on the series for six years.
"Dearest TVD Family, I've just spent the most beautiful weekend on Lake Lanier in Georgia with my own TVD Family, the cast and crew of The Vampire Diaries," the actress announced on Instagram Sunday on a shot of herself hugging showrunner Julie Plec. "I want to be the first to tell you that it wasn't just a holiday celebration, it was a goodbye party. I always knew I wanted Elena's story to be a six season adventure, and within those six years I got the journey of a lifetime."
Rumors started popping up that Ian's engagement to Nikki Reed was what sparked her decision to leave the show, but both of them have shut those down in their own ways. While Nina posted photos, Ian directed his fans to check out an E! Online article about why Nina didn't leave the Vampire Diaries because of their break-up.
As for why she left, that decision "has been in the works for quite some time," according to E! News, which added she is "ready to get some rest, reclaim some of her freedom and move on to other opportunities."
