Ian Somerhalder Interview

Cast and Characters, Interviews

BuzzSugar has an interview with Ian Somerhalder.

Check it all out here.

Here is an excerpt:

How will he behave with Stefan gone?

IS: I think he’s going to rise to the occasion, and I think he’s going to have fun doing whatever it is. I mean, this is the guy that, whether he’s ripping someone’s head off or saving a kitten, he has the exact same grin on his face. He feels the same way about either one of those things. It’s the thing that we were doing in season one, which is that push-pull, you know. It’s like the alcoholic in the bar, how difficult that is. These guys are natural killers, that’s what they do. If you put a mouse or a cricket in front of a kitten or cat, they’re not going to just watch it, they’re going to play with it. It’s built in to the framework of their being. I think that push-pull is really what makes dynamic storytelling. Stefan has that push-pull with Klaus. He tried to save his brother, yet ultimately he’s compelled and he’s going along with the whole thing. Damon has the push-pull of wanting to destroy everything in his path and needing to protect this girl that he loves, and Elena has the push-pull of many things, poor thing — she’s being pulled from every limb. But she gets something from Damon that she doesn’t get from Stefan. They laugh, they throttle each other, they bicker. There’s actually a line in the next episode where Alaric even says, “What are you guys, 12?” Because they have this kind of cute banter thing happening, and I think it’s cool. We’re going to start seeing these different sides to these different characters, but if people are expecting Damon to be this wearing-his-heart-on-his-sleeve hero character — ain’t happening.
