"I do a lot of yoga. I practice yoga three or fourtimes a week. It's an escape for me," says Dubrev, who may just have acareer to fall back on if if this whole acting thing doesn't work out. "Icould be a yoga instructor. I'm not certified, but I could do it. Once I did aclass where the instructor didn't show up, and I just went to the front and didit, and everyone followed. So I've done it before, and I love it."

One activity she isn't into? Lying around poolside.

"I don't really wear stringy bikinis much,"admits Dobrev. "I wear a lot of thicker, sportier stuff, because I'll playvolleyball on the beach and go surfing and swimming. I'm not thelounge-in-a-chair-in-next-to-nothing-for-tan-lines kind of girl."
