Nina Dobrev said an emotional goodbye to her Vampire Diaries character Elena Gilbert at the 2015 Teen Choice Awards on Sunday, Aug. 16.

Taking the stage to accept the surfboard for Choice TV Actress in the Sci-Fi/Fantasy category, the TVD alum, 26, jokingly sported a pair of plastic vampire fangs, which she tossed to the side as she began her speech.

“That’s right, I don’t need these anymore,” she said, as the crowd let out a collective “aww.” More on what Dobrev had to say on Us Weekly
