How could we ever forget Nina Dobrev’s totally epic 2007 Lifetime Movie role
If there’s one thing we’re not afraid to admit that we love, it’s Lifetime Original Movies. Seriously, there’s nothing better than curling up on the couch with a bottle of wine and binge-watching over-dramatic thrillers while screaming at the TV.
What’s even better though, is when we realize that some of our favorite actors and actresses of all time are in these television-movie gems — in this case, it’s Vampire Diaries actress Nina Dobrev.
Back in 2007, the 27-year old actress appeared in the Life Original Movie, My Daughter’s Secret, in which she plays a 17-year old girl who’s “bad boy” boyfriend robs the jewelry store where her mother works. She ends up getting stuck in a pretty intense and terrifying position — her boyfriend’s friend, who actually shoots someone in the robbery — says she was “the lookout” for the robbery, which will obviously get her thrown into jail if she tells anyone.
*GASP* The moment she realizes what just happened! She's actually got the whole "OMG WHAT HAVE WE DONE" look down perfectly!
This is the look of someone who's wrapped up in betrayal! She's nails this -- perfect for a Lifetime role!
You'll *never* guess what happens when her boyfriend tries to protect her and her mom from their friend that actually shot someone during the robbery!
My Daughter’s Secret has all the ingredients for that perfect Lifetime Movie recipe — lies, romance, betrayal, and murder — and we LOVE it.
Alright, we know exactly what we’re streaming tonight! You can watch the trailer for the *epic* Lifetime Original below.
