Despite being involved in some big television shows in the past, Ian Somerhalder became a household name thanks to his portrayal of Damon Salvatore in the hit The CW vampire series The Vampire Diaries. With season four of The Vampire Diaries just around the corner, Ian has teased what fans can expect from his character.
Somerhalder told TV Guide, “The guy tried everything. He tried to be the romantic, he tried to be the big brother, but no one listened to him and it all went to sh--. He's now saying, 'You know what? I tried, it didn't work, screw you. This is who I am and this is what I do.’”
He added, “I think Damon is the key to her understanding a lot of what's going on during the transition. He even [tells Stefan (Paul Wesley)] she's not going to be able to understand this blood lust, so let her feel the urge and the pain and hunger. That way, she knows what she's up against.”
The “she” in question is Elena (Nina Dobrev) who is having to deal with becoming a vampire, which will play a big part in season four. The Vampire Diaries season four is set to premiere on The CW this Thursday at 8/7c.
