Nina Dobrev has 'a long road of recovery ahead' after hospitalization for biking accident

Nina Dobrev is "OK" but facing a "long" recovery after an accident.

On Monday, "The Vampire Diaries" star, 35, shared before-and-after photos on Instagram that appeared to show her being hospitalized with multiple injuries.

"How it started vs how it’s going," she captioned the post. The first photo shows her on an e-bike, while the second reveals Dobrev lying on a hospital bed with a brace on her left leg and another around her neck.

"I'm OK but it's going to be a long road of recovery ahead," she wrote in an Instagram Story.

USA TODAY has reached out to Dobrev's reps for comment.

According to her friend and business partner, Julianne Hough, Dobrev seems to be handling her injuries well: "That’s my girl!" the dancer wrote in a comment under the post. "Obviously wouldn’t make jokes if you were not ok…"

"Just keeping things on brand ❤️," boyfriend Shaun White commented.

White also posted an Instagram Story on Monday showing Dobrev reclining in the seat of a private jet with her dog, Maverick, as her injured leg is concealed in a brace and elevated on a pillow. Dobrev's latest project, a Lil Rel Howery-starring murder mystery comedy titled "Reunion," comes out June 28.

Since her days as Elena Gilbert and Katherine Pierce on "The Vampire Diaries" came to an end in 2017, the film and TV actress has been busy producing, acting and foraying into directing.

"Telling provocative, interesting, impactful stories for women by women, that’s always been at the core of a lot of the projects," she told Flaunt Magazine in a 2021 interview.

"When I first moved to the United States, there weren’t a lot of producing opportunities for me," Dobrev, who was born in Bulgaria and relocated with her family to Canada, added.

"It took a while for me to get to where I am now, and part of it is me having the confidence and feeling like I can, but that was also because I didn’t see a lot of examples of it. At the beginning of my career, I didn’t have a lot of people to look up to in that world.”
