Casting news was hot last week — especially if you're a fan of onscreen vampires and Oscar winners. Jennifer Lawrence will star and produce her next project, Kristen Stewart has snagged two new roles, and The Vampire Diaries heartthrob Ian Somerhalder has signed on for a thriller. Meanwhile, a Game of Thrones actor committed to a big-screen project, and the Guardians of the Galaxy cast gained another star. See these and the rest of this week's casting news now!
Last night The CW network held its upfront presentation in NYC. In addition to its popular stable of stars, such as The Vampire Diaries’ Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder — together on the same stage after their reported split — and the casts of The Carrie Diaries, Hart of Dixie and more shows, the event welcomed a group of Australian actors, including some newcomers to The CW family. Phoebe Tonkin and Claire Holt will star in The Vampire Diaries spin-off The Originals, Adelaide Kane takes centre stage as Mary, Queen of Scots in Reign, Luke Mitchell was there to support his new show The Tomorrow People, and Jay Ryan celebrated the second season of his show Beauty and the Beast, which premieres on Eleven on April 27.
Phoebe, Claire, Adelaide, Luke and Jay aren’t the only Aussies making waves on US primetime. Rebel Wilson and Sophie Lowe both have lead roles in new shows on the ABC network (watch the previews for their respective shows Super Fun Night and Once Upon a Time in Wonderland) while Lincoln Lewis, Bob Morley and Chris Egan are among the former Home and Away hotties making the jump to Hollywood.
Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder have reportedly broken up after three years of dating. The two met back in 2009 when they started filming The Vampire Diaries together, and they've both shared a lot of sweet moments over the years, be it friendly or romantic. We've rounded up the pair's most memorable interactions, so we can all look back fondly on their relationship. Click through to see Ian and Nina's best moments!
One of our favourite on- and offscreen couples, Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder, have called it quits. The Vampire Diaries stars dated for over three years, and despite their breakup, they'll still be working together on set when the fifth season begins filming. Nina and Ian aren't the first TV co-stars to strike up a romantic relationship — small-screen duos like Rachel Bilson and Adam Brody, Blake Lively and Penn Badgley, and Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron also hooked up during their downtime, and leading ladies like Jennifer Garner, Emily VanCamp and Sophia Bush were lucky enough to find love on more than one set.

Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev have reportedly ended their three-year relationship. Us Weekly reports that Ian and Nina split, but that the two will "remain best friends" and continue to work together on The Vampire Diaries, where they first met. The couple first went public with their relationship back in 2011, and they would often attend events together. Nina was most recently spotted spending time with friend Julianne Hough, including taking a bikini trip to Miami. Julianne may be able to offer Nina some advice on handling her breakup as she announced her split from long-time boyfriend Ryan Seacrest back in March. The two were by each other's side on Tuesday when they attended the 2013 Met Gala together.
Ian may have have hinted about the breakup when he posted a quote on Twitter shortly before the news hit. He said this morning, "People change and forget to tell each other. -Lillian Hellman, playwright (1905-1984)." Looking forward, Nina will begin work on her new film, Let's Be Cops, in Winter, and pick up filming for the fifth season of The Vampire Diaries in Spring.
