"The Vampire Diaries" alum Nina Dobrev, who has been a fan of HBO's "True Detective" since its first season, is reportedly interested in being a part of the drama.

The actress quit "The Vampire Diaries" recently after being a part of the show for six seasons, and now she has set her eyes on "True Detective." She is reportedly keen to play a key role in the yet to be announced season 3.

"One of the people who would love to get her hands on a role in True Detective for season three is Nina Dobrev," a HollywoodLife source revealed. "She has told her people to start talking to the right people and to get her into those meetings. She knows she has time since season two has just ended, but she wants to be first in line for when decisions are to be made."

However, landing a role on "True Detective" might not be that easy, as it is one of the most popular shows on television, having cast Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson, Rachel McAdams and Colin Farrell among others.

"Everyone in Hollywood is clamoring for a role on two shows right now and those shows are True Detective and Empire," added the source. "It is something that is keeping casting agents busy, but also making their lives easier because producers are getting whom and what they want."
It remains to be seen if Dobrev will succeed in bagging a role. In the meantime, the door is wide open for the actress to return to "The Vampire Diaries", which will air its seventh season in October.

CW network president Mark Pedowitz told reporters at the Television Critics Association summer press tour that Dobrev can return to the vampire drama any time she wants.

"We would have loved Nina to stay," Pedowitz admitted. "She did a great job for the six years she was on the show and she's welcome anytime she wants to come back. "
