Interview With Ian Somerhalder of The Vampire Diaries

All fans of The Vampire Diaries know exactly who Ian Somerhalder is, he is of course the gorgeous man that plays the role of Damon Salvatore, the wicked vampire of the show. recently did an interview with the sexy actor, check it out…

Damon is a bad guy, but brutally honest, too.  And there’s something to be said for that, right?

You know what?  The more I hang out with Damon on a daily basis, the more I find interesting about him.  The first thing you have to understand about Damon is that he’s a very motivated and lonely guy.  You put those two things together and you have a very dangerous individual, but the funny thing is — and as trite as it sounds — what he does, he does out of love.  There are two relationships that he misses and that he wants back in his life — his brother and his girl — and he’ll do anything he can to get them back.  Imagine being 160 years old, with the amount of life experience that he would have, the amount of cynicism, and how lonely you’d be.

Where are things heading in the second half of the season?

We’re going to start seeing more interaction between Damon and Elena.  We’re going to start seeing what Damon is ultimately after and he’s going to get closer to it.  We’re going to see what he wants and how attainable it may or may not be.  I understand that I’m being vague.  Another thing that we’re going to dive into is how complicated the relationship between Damon and Stefan is.  It’s getting more and more complicated every episode, and all the problems that we set up in the first half of the season we’re going to really dive into now.  So you have that Damon-Stefan-Elena triangle and the relationships between Stefan and Elena, and you’ll see Damon and Elena.  There’s a whole other aspect to the Damon-Stefan-Elena relationship, and that’s Katherine (the vampire who turned Damon and Stefan, and who’s also played by Dobrev).  We’ll get into that a little bit, too, which is some of my favorite stuff to do.  Going back in time to the late 1860’s is so much fun.

We keep hearing stories about a Damon-Katherine kiss…

It’s fun.  You know what’s really cool?  Damon was so in love with Katherine, enough that he’s spent the last 148 years figuring out a way to get back to her.  I think you see that in Katherine.  She’s so much fun and she’s so beautiful, and Damon is just enthralled with her.  He’s mesmerized by her.  They’re cute together, Damon and Katherine.

That was just a small taste, to read the full interview head over here.

Moonlight (aka Amanda) loves to write about, read about and learn about everything pertaining to vampires. You will most likely find her huddled over a book of vampire folklore with coffee in hand. Touch her coffee and she may bite you (and not in the fun way).

Why does everyone only think about looks! Okay I admit, the looks do count, but the thing about Damon is he has this sweet and sensitive side that gets my attention, because I feel there’s this deeper side of Damon that people wanna dig up.
