Let’s Get Lost in the Eyes of ‘Vampire Diaries’ Star Ian Somerhalder – The Daily Swoon
It’s easy to see how you might let Ian Somerhalder turn you into a vampire on the CW series ‘The Vampire Diaries’ — have you looked in his eyes? You could get lost in there for hours. It’s worse than IKEA.
On ‘The Vampire Diaries,’ Ian Somerhalder plays Damon, a really sexy vampire with a really troubled past (don’t they all have troubled pasts?). He hangs out with other sexy vampire types and they do sexy vampire stuff, like sulk around in the dark in nice clothing.
You may also recognize Somerhalder from his role on ‘Lost’ as Boone, or from the 2002 movie ‘The Rules of Attraction,’ in which he played the bisexual character Paul Denton, who had a crush on James Van Der Beek (but who doesn’t, really).
When he’s not busy being a sexy vampire, Somerhalder is involved in various charitable efforts, like the Humane Society (aww) and the It Gets Better Project. He also set up the Ian Somerhalder Foundation, which helps bring attention to the importance of the environment and animals. And a bit of good news for all the single ladies out there — he’s a free man these days.
