How Did Nina Dobrev Audition for 'Perks of Being a Wallflower'?

[From Hollywood Crush] As circa-1995 Alanis Morissette would hiss, isn't it ironic that Nina Dobrev auditioned for the big-screen adaptation of Stephen Chbosky's "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" via Skype, considering the technology wasn't a thing in the early '90s (the time period in which the novel is set)? I mean, don't you think?

Well, it was all part of a journey "The Vampire Diaries" star took to land the role of Charlie's sister Candace — despite a geographic challenge or two.

"I think I was one of the last pieces, probably not the last piece," Nina told MTV News during the Toronto International Film Festival. "But I was in Atlanta filming, and I really loved the script, and I really wanted to be a part of it, but I couldn't get to where Stephen was, so we Skyped my audition. I was in between takes, and I kind of had to be like, 'Guys, I'm going to go to the bathroom. I just have to pee for five minutes.' And then I went and Skyped and auditioned and there was a moment definitely a moment that we both knew this was a right fit and it worked."
