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.
Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev are both back to work on The Vampire Diaries but they most certainly find time to relax now and then. While their schedules have them working long, hard hours, they make sure to use their spare time wisely.
“Shark week mania!! Timing couldn’t be better.. I’m going through Olympic withdrawals (sic),” Nina tweeted on Monday. “Settling down after long day/night of #tvd Good night beautiful world—stay cool (sic),” Ian tweeted on Wednesday. It sounds like Ian and Nina both like to just stay in and kick back when they have a late night—or an early morning.
Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev are more than likely spending these nights in front of the television together. They have been dating for a couple of years now and while they are careful not to reveal too much about their private lives, fans believe that they spend a ton of time together—even if it’s just at home hanging out.
I have added DVD screencaps from series 2 of The Vampire Diaries including extras.
“The Vampire Diaries” will return this fall to Channel 6 in Tempe, and now fans are being given the inside scoop on what will happen next from one of the main members of the cast. On Friday, August 3, KSiteTV shared the latest comments made by Ian Somerhalder. Check out the most recent photos of the cast promoting the series here.

Elena’s transition is definitely a focus of this fourth season, and it could mean some series changes for Elena and her personality. She might not be so good once she changes into a vampire. Ian Somerhalder revealed the following:
“Listen. Elena, we know her to be this phenomenally solid human being; an amazing individual, this beacon of light, this shepherd through the valley of darkness, but Damon and Stefan have these tendencies to be highly volatile, very unpredictable at times when they’re on a bender and they’re crazy… who’s to say that when she turns into this vampire and goes through this transformation, when her amplified 10,000-fold, that she’s not going to become this super-volatile, unpredictable being? The yin and yang of it all is that obviously she chose Stefan, so I’m sure there’s some hot vamp sex that’s going to happen there, and then when she gets tired of Stefan, who knows… maybe she’ll come to Damon.”
Julie Plec, the executive producer of the series, has already revealed that Elena will have vampire sex in the first few episodes of the season, and it will be a big moment for her. She will see it as losing her virginity again. However, it has not yet been revealed which vampire male she will sleep with. Is it Stefan as Somerhalder teases?
