Nina Dobrev has cried so much she “feels like a blow fish”.

The 26-year-old actress is rounding out her time as Elena Gilbert on hit CW series The Vampire Diaries, following her announcement this week that she has quit. And her final few days on set are proving to be intensely emotional as she says goodbye to her cast mates. “I feel like a blow fish, so puffy and bloated from crying all day. Tears of joy&sadness. Bittersweet. So many memories. What a fun ride [sic]…” she wrote on her WhoSay profile alongside a photo of she and co-stars Kat Graham and Candice Accola.

Nina worked on the supernatural series for six seasons. She has no doubt made valuable friends on the show, making this goodbye particularly difficult. “Ok. Officially a mess. No hiding it anymore,” she wrote alongside another shot with the girls. “Today has been a day filled with farewells.. I still have 2 more days of shooting before I wrap TVD. But it's officially a wrap on Caroline&Elena&Bonnie. Finished filming with these two beautiful, funny, sweet, sassy, amazingly talented and lovely ladies.... @candiceaccola @katgrahampics. Love you with all my heart and soul forever and always... #TVDFamily [sic].”

Nina starred in the show alongside her former boyfriend Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley since 2009. She announced her departure last week, revealing via Instagram that she and her colleagues had enjoyed a “goodbye party” over the Easter holiday. “I want to be the first to tell you that it wasn't just a holiday celebration, it was a goodbye party,” she informed wrote, adding, “I always knew I wanted Elena's story to be a six season adventure, and within those six years I got the journey of a lifetime.”

Dearest TVD Family, I've just spent the most beautiful weekend on Lake Lanier in Georgia with my own TVD Family, the cast and crew of The Vampire Diaries. I want to be the first to tell you that it wasn't just a holiday celebration, it was a goodbye party. I always knew I wanted Elena's story to be a six season adventure, and within those six years I got the journey of a lifetime. I was a human, a vampire, a doppelganger, a crazy immortal, a doppelganger pretending to be human, a human pretending to be a doppelganger. I got kidnapped, killed, resurrected, tortured, cursed, body-snatched, was dead and undead, and there's still so much more to come before the season finale in May. Elena fell in love not once, but twice, with two epic soulmates, and I myself made some of the best friends I'll ever know and built an extended family I will love forever. There's more to come before we wrap this up, and I promise you'll get to hear all about my experiences over the next month as we approach the season finale (I have given an exclusive interview for the June issue of SELF Magazine that I am excited for you to see!), but until then I invite you to hop on the roller coaster ride that is Elena Gilbert's life and join me as I celebrate her and prepare to say goodbye to her -- and to my work family -- as I move on to the next chapter of my life. I want to share this goodbye with all of you (this weekend's pictures were just the beginning). You, the wonderful fandom who gave more love, support and passion than anyone could have ever imagined seven years ago, when a young Degrassi girl from Canada showed up in LA to audition for 'that Twilight TV show.' ;-) I love you all. Fasten your seatbelts. If you think you know what's coming, you don't. Love, Nina
