Nina Dobrev graced the Emmy red carpet, looking red hot in a body-hugging, fiery-hued gown. Dobrev's career is also on fire these days. She just wrapped up work on the big-screen adaptation of "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" and gushed about her superstar pal and co-worker Emma Watson.

"It was bittersweet, and we were all kind of sad to say bye," Dobrev told MTV News on the Emmy red carpet Sunday (September 18) in L.A. "But we still keep in touch."

And she wasn't lying: She was just hanging with some of her co-stars. It seems there are no wallflowers in this cast.

"I saw Mae Whitman last night and Dylan McDermott, who is my dad, was there last night, and Em and I talk," she shared. "She's back in England going to Oxford, being all book smart."

So, what is the "Harry Potter" star like? "She's so impressive," Dobrev said. "She's such a smart, smart young woman and surprisingly normal and cool and regular."

In addition to her move to the big screen, Dobrev's also got the small screen to keep her busy. Her hit CW series "The Vampire Diaries" just kicked off its third season, and Dobrev revealed that things will get spicy.

"The first episode just aired, and it was gritty, but at the same time, it felt like the beginning of our show," she said. "It was a lot about the characters, the relationships, which we kind of started to fall back from. [Expect] a lot of love, a couple of new characters, and it's going to be really exciting."
