She’s won over the hearts of millions of Americans, and Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas just got a big boost from the stars of one of her favorite shows, “Vampire Diaries.”

Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder and the rest of the gang put together a video congratulating Douglas and her teammate Aly Raisman and wishing them luck in their competition.

Ms. Dobrev was said to be behind the whole project. She told press, “Forget sleep. It’s all about the Olympics right now. I’m obsessed. Like, it’s actually a problem. They’re starting to tell me I’m looking tired on set, and it’s because I’m up until, like, two in the morning watching the Olympics and going to work at 5 a.m.”

“I used to be a gymnast, and I competed internationally, so it’s my favorite time. I even bought a 3D TV so that I could watch them in 3D. When I found out that Gabby liked the show, I was incredibly excited and really happy to make the video. And now we follow each other on Twitter, so we’ve been direct messaging. The 16-year-old in me wishes that I was up there with them. So I’m just so happy for her success. And she’s so cute. She has the most amazing smile.”
