The Vampire Diaries star had an unforgettable adventure when she dived into the sea to swim cage-free with the big fish when she flew out to Bora Bora with boyfriend and co-star Ian Somerhalder.

She told US TV presenter Chelsea Handler: "I went to Bora Bora and it was really freaky actually. At first there's an adrenaline rush, and I'm equally as fascinated as I am terrified of them.

"Those were black-tips, but we swam with lemon sharks too, which I thought were docile, later to find out on (TV documentary) Shark Week that a dude got his arm eaten off by one, which really freaked me out!"

The 23-year-old also revealed she had a plan if the sharks became aggressive.

She joked: "They say you're supposed to punch them in the nose so I decided I'd just go swimming with heels, and I find that they're a lot more effective."

Nina will reprise her role as vampires Elena and Katherine in the hit TV series, as well as appearing in movie The Perks Of Being A Wallflower alongside Emma Watson.
