Last time we chatted with Nina Dobrev, she was the newbie on Degrassi. It hasn't been that long since then, but Nina's career has totally blown up! Up next is MTV's The American Mall, in which she acts, sings, and dances -- in the middle of a mall! Read on to find out what Nina craves at the food court, which musical she's obsessed with, and more. And tune in to The American Mall on August 11 at 9 PM on MTV!

How did filming The American Mall compare to filming Degrassi?
It's completely different because the genre is a musical. We did four weeks of rehearsals -- just straight dancing, acting, singing, and recording vocals. It was really intense. We were out in Utah, and there was nothing to do. There were no distractions, so it was pure work. But the cast and I got along really well, so even though it was a lot of hard work, we had a really great time filming it.
