I have added HD screencaps from episode 20, he wasn’t in this episode a lot.
Ian Somerhalder has become a permanent fixture in our TV schedules thanks to The Vampire Diaries and it appears that it’s going to be a while before he disappears…
Having spoken about the last few days of filming for The Vampire Diaries on his Twitter page, Ian, who plays the role of Damon Salvatore, continued to do so by posting a picture of Damon in his year book with a caption that hinted he could be on the show for a while yet.
Whilst Ian may be returning to the show, he could also be making a move to the big screen following the constant rumours that he could be the one to play the role of Christian Grey in the movie adaptation of 50 Shades Of Grey.
Recalling the time a fan thought Ian was Christian Grey, the actor who is currently dating his Vampire Diaries co-star Nina Dobrev, told the AP recently:
“You could see her blushing for a second. She saw that I saw the book, and I just smiled at her and said, “It’s a good read, huh?” And she goes, ‘This so embarrassing.’
“Everybody’s up for this role. But in her mind, just from seeing media, I was that guy.”
However, should Ian be worried as British actor Alex Pettyfer was recently spotted filming scenes for the film? Well not really as Alex was filming a sex scene for director Gus Van Sant, who – according to E! News - is keen to show producers that he is the right man to direct Fifty Shades when the film begins shooting.
I have added screencaps from the rest of season 4.
Maranda Pleasant: What is it that makes you feel the most alive?
Ian Somerhalder: It’s one of those things that hits you when you’re not even looking for it. It’s a moment when you find those words surging through your mind — “I feel so alive right now.” There’s varying degrees of it. Acting definitely makes me feel so remarkably alive. Sitting on a beach or walking through nature makes me come alive always.
What I’ve started to realize is that social media is not just technology — it’s become its own entity, full of energy waves. These energy waves could be a Tweet about something you are furious about, like the Keystone Pipeline, or a piece of legislation. Instantly, energy surrounds and adds traction, influence, making it come alive. Within hours, this piece of information you’ve just doled out has become a monsoon, a hurricane of tangible energy that is literally circulating the world. It’s helped me sense the undeniable truth of quantum consciousness, the whole butterfly effect. I witness it daily. Being witness to it not only makes me come alive, it enables me to maintain hope.
Thirty years ago, if you wanted to start a campaign against or for something, you had to print flyers, you had to make a million phone calls. Remember presidential campaigns and stuff? It was a very laborious thing. Now we can literally talk to each other in a nanosecond. I’m starting to realize there’s no stopping us now. An idea, a feeling, a movement can’t just be squashed. It’s impossible now.
MP: What is commitment to you?
IS: Making a choice to follow through or to honor. Engagement and guarantee — we all love guarantees in life. Making a commitment, whether it’s for something like climate change or to my family, or even to my fans — what that means to me is, whether on paper or verbally or spiritually, making a promise to guarantee that I will fulfill whatever agreement we have. For me, commitment boils down to honor. Because you make a commitment to protect our environment, you make a commitment to species preservation, you make a commitment to stop things like human trafficking. You make a commitment to stop smoking, to eat better. Typically, something that is positive. A positive notion of honor.
