Los Angeles: `The Vampire Diaries` star Nina Dobrev feels acting in a comedy film is `terrifying` and an actor needs to be uninhibited and fearless in performing such a role.
Dobrev, 25, who has acted in melodramas, stars in upcoming comedy `Let`s Be Cops` opposite Damon Wayans Jr, Jake Johnson and Andy Garcia, reportedly.
"I can get to an emotional place and start crying, but there`s pressure when you think you have to be funny. You really have to be uninhibited and fearless," she said. The movie is expected to hit US theatres on August 13.
