Dobrev, 26, who announced her departure on Instagram earlier this month, also posted a Polaroid-style shot of her hugging her costar, 30, whom she tagged as part of her “#TVDFamily.”
Though Trevino, who played vampire-werewolf hybrid Tyler Lockwood, has been quiet about his reasons for departing, Dobrev wrote in her April 6 announcement, “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.”
After Dobrev’s on-screen brother Steven R. McQueen made his own exit in February, the actress who played Elena Gilbert (and her doppelgänger Katherine Pierce) will end her run alongside Trevino on May 14 when TVD‘s sixth season ends.
The Vampire Diaries airs Thursdays (8 p.m. ET) on The CW.
