The Vampire Diaries' Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev have been enjoying a break from filming their hit television drama.
However, that time hasn’t been sent relaxing; Ian has been running a campaign to get the Christian Grey role in Fifty Shades of Grey whilst also running around the globe trying to save the environment.
And it appears all the campaigning hasn’t been in vain as Ian was the choice of fans of Fifty Shades of Grey for the role of Christian Grey.
He came away with 27% of the votes while Superman’s Henry Cavill came in second with 15% and A-list Ryan Gosling came in third with 13%.
Nina, on the other hand, recently dished about who inspires her sleek style. She said: “One of them is Kate Beckinsale; she has great style because she’s always so classy and put together in a very clean way. Zoe Saldana takes a lot of risks, but is still very classy. I love Dianna Agron, Emma Watson, Olivia Wilde, Emma Stone…they’re all so great.”
Depite the go ahead from fans of the Fifty Shades series, Ian Somerhalder still hasn’t received an official ‘yes’ for Christian Grey’s role.
The Vampire Diaries actor Ian Somerhalder, who plays the character Damon in the hit The CW vampire series, has been discussing the relationship between his character and his brother Stefan (Paul Wesley). The two vampires are caught in a love triangle with Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Ian admits that it is all set to come to a head.
Somerhalder explained to TV Guide, “What’s interesting about what’s happening right now is the dynamic between the brothers. The episode coming up is really about these brothers overcoming their disdain for each other.”
He added, “[They’re] ultimately realising that family is really embedded into the fabric of who we are and if you can connect with that it’s really powerful.”
Ian continued, “This whole Damon-Elena-Stefan thing is coming to a head. Stefan (Paul Wesley) knows that there are feelings flying around between the three of them and he’s man enough to understand that this is a symptom of love and how complicated it can be.” Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev are currently dating each other off screen, as well as being love interests on screen.
The Vampire Diaries continues on The CW every Thursday at 8/7c.
Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder have become two of the hottest vampires on television, thanks to their performances in the hit The CW vampire series The Vampire Diaries. Now the two actors have been discussing their characters and what fans should expect in the future with TV Line.
Wesley explained, “The fans should definitely maintain some hope. The thing to remember is that Stefan and Elena (Nina Dobrev) have this love that is so strong, and it was sort of the core of season one - you can’t entirely disregard that.”
He added, “But I’m also not against it. I just feel like things have to happen naturally, and I don’t want anything force-fed. I don’t want the audience to get sick of any one relationship. Quite truthfully, I think they needed to break up - and I think eventually they’ll need to get back together.”
Ian Somerhalder then admitted that Damon and Stefan love each other, despite their differences. He saud, “They’re the only two that know each other and understand each other. And at the end of the day they do love each other and they have to take care of each other.”
The Vampire Diaries airs on Thursday nights at 8/7c on The CW.
While the majority of you will love Ian Somerhalder because of his performances in the hit vampire television series The Vampire Diaries, I prefer him from a time when he was at his best. No disrespect to Ian, he is still fantastic in The Vampire Diaries but I feel that there was a time when he was better.
That time, as you can probably tell from the title, is when Ian Somerhalder was in Lost. Ian’s performances in Lost were superb and it was a shame that his character Boone was killed off so early. Ian did still appear in a few flashback scenes but it just wasn’t the same.
I have been re-watching Lost right from the beginning of season one and once Ian Somerhalder died, I kind of felt a little disappointed. Maybe my love for The Vampire Diaries has increased my love of Boone in Lost but I still feel that Ian Somerhalder was superb in Lost.
When Boone died in Lost, it brought a tear to my eye, which is a testament to the performance of Ian Somerhalder. As you can probably tell, I am a fan of the work of Ian Somerhalder and he seems like a genuinely nice guy in real life too. Keep up the good work Ian. Arriba!!
Do you think Ian Somerhalder is better in Lost or The Vampire Diaries?
Cassidy Freeman is the latest person to join the cast of The Vampire Diaries and she has teased the possibility of a threesome scene. Cassidy hinted to Entertainment Weekly that her character Sage is set to become entangled in a three way relationship with Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Rebekah (Claire Holt).
Freeman explained, “With any sort of threesome, you never know who to trust, but it’s definitely a sordid affair - and because they’re vampires, it has to happen in the bedroom. I think that’s one of the rules!”
She then went on to reveal how she came to receive the role of Sage in The Vampire Diaries, claiming that it was pretty much an offer she could not refuse. Cassidy also revealed how there is a lot of manipulation involved in the hit The CW vampire series.
Freeman added, “They’re all, ‘Shower scene, ambiguous sexual orientation scene, boxing in 1912 - do you want the part?’ And I’m all, ‘That’s not a question. That’s an offer’. It’s definitely a manipulating time. In the present day, I’m trying to help Damon figure out what Rebekah’s up to, and let’s just say that we’ll use any tactic that we can.”
The Vampire Diaries airs on Thursday nights on The CW.
