Alexandra Chando

  1. Nina Debrov, The Vampire Diaries, TV,  2012-2014.     Although the CW suits plainly wanted Ashlee Simpson, producer-director Marcos Siega saw Torrey DeVitto – and tested Chando (four times!) – before choosing Debrov as Elena Gilbert, torn between two vampire brothers in   Mystic Falls,  Virgina.
