Sep 28th: Birthday Projects: Ian Somerhalder Bday Project Update

Natalie | Categories: Birthday Projects, Ian Somerhalder, Site, Site Updates, St Tammany Humane Society | 3 Comments

Dear Fans,

I wanted to bring you all up to date on the status of the project. Today, September 28, Ian Somerhalder tweeted about the project and a surge in bday greetings and donations swarmed my inbox.

I wanted to thank everyone for their devotion, beautiful messages, and very generous donations. This doesn’t mean that this needs to end here. Please continue with your messages and donations so we can surprise Ian with everything we fans can do. Now that he knows, it means we need to up our game plan a bit.

Remember, if you cannot donate, that is ok! You can still send in a wonderful birthday greeting!

I’d like to thank Vampire Diaries Online, Damonic and all the other wonderful sites for posting about our project.

Another thing I’d like to add is the cost to prepare Ian’s actual birthday package is going to be a little hefty. I am not using donation money to cover those costs. Do you see the donate button on the sidebar with the Ian Bday Project tab? If you are able to contribute a few dollars towards the birthday book, postage fees, stuffed animal and another surprise bday gift I’m adding to the package, then please do! I’d appreciate the help!

Thanks again for your help in everything everyone! It means the world to me and Nicki that you are being so wonderful!

Sep 28th: Ian Somerhalder: Romance with Elena is Damon’s ‘Pipe Dream’

Linda | Categories: Exclusive, Ian Somerhalder, Season 2, TV Series | 1 Comment

Now that we’ve heard Ian Somerhalder’s thoughts on a “Vampire Diaries” musical episode, and how playing Damon’s softer side is a challenge, what else did we have to discuss with the CW superstar?

Why, the possibility of a hook-up between his character, Damon, and Nina Dobrev’s Elena, of course. Unfortunately for “Dalena” fans, Ian said the forecast for their romantic future is pretty bleak.

“Look, here’s the thing, I don’t know how he’s going to get back into her good graces. He killed her brother, there is no better way to tell someone you love them then to snap their brother’s neck. Most people do flowers,” Ian told MTV News recently. “I’ve heard [fans want] that and even in talking to Kevin [Williamson] and Julie [Plec]… How? That’s the question: How in the hell is he going to get back in her good graces? How is she ever going to trust him again? How is she ever even going to want to look at him again?”

Somerhalder went on to say that he doesn’t think a relationship is in the cards for Damon and Elena, that it’s just “a pipe dream for Damon.” He had similar thoughts regarding fans’ wanting a Damon-Bonnie pairing.

“Again, she hates him! Hates him. And not like the kind of hate that could eventually turn into love, she despises the guy,” Ian said. “Five generations for her family have despised the guy, you know what I mean?

“How many times could he be rejected?” he added. “Poor guy. He would probably be better off leaving Mystic Falls and going to the Caribbean for 100 years.”

Somehow we sincerely doubt that. Even in the Caribbean Damon would find a way to incite death and destruction.

Sep 27th: Ian Somerhalder Wants To Do a Musical Episode of Vampire Diaries

Linda | Categories: Exclusive, Ian Somerhalder, Season 2 | Comments Off on Ian Somerhalder Wants To Do a Musical Episode of Vampire Diaries

For those who enjoyed last week’s “Vampire Diaries” episode tease from series star Ian Somerhalder, we have a slew of juicy goods to roll-out this week (in addition to Ian having admitted that playing the softer side of Damon is a challenge, and that he spends his days off trying to save the world, of course).

For today’s installment, we bring you Ian’s thoughts on his new “Sexy Beast” status, hazing from his co-stars and the answer to an excellent reader-submitted question: Would he consider doing a musical episode?

“I would do a musical episode in a heartbeat!” Ian exclaimed, then revealed that one of his fellow cast members has a hidden talent that would be perfect for a musical. “Zach Roerig [aka Matt] is a tap dancer,” he said. “Who would’ve thought?”

So what would be Damon’s go-to musical number?

“I don’t know… Damon would be more like the barber of Fleet Street [a la “Sweeney Todd”]. He would be the guy who sings as he cuts people’s arms off,” he said matter-of-factly—which made us laugh out loud. “Full, Johnny Depp style.”

Speaking of Johnny Depp and movies, would Ian consider doing more feature films?

“Well absolutely. Are you kidding? It will happen eventually,” he said. “Right now this show is our focus, this is what we’re doing. We’re in the thick of it, and it’s an amazing place to be… We have the best jobs ever and hopefully features come down the pike.”

We mentioned that given his new “Sexy Beast” status, bestowed by Entertainment Weekly readers, the move scripts should be pouring in by now.

“I just walk around the set growling now,” he joked, adding that he got “a lot” of hazing from his fellow cast members for that title. “That was pretty awesome,” he said. “That was a trip.”

Speaking of the on-set dynamics among the popular cast, Ian said that everyone gets along really well.

“Paul [Wesley] and I just pretty much make fun of each other all day,” he said. “Nina [Dobrev] pretty much makes fun of the two of us all day.”

Has this friendly banter led to any pet names or nicknames?

“We don’t necessarily have nicknames [for each other], if there are nicknames, they’re not very PG-13 or even 17… Yeah, I’ll leave those silent.”

Sep 23rd: THE VAMPIRE DIARIES’ Ian Somerhalder on Damon’s Issues with Katherine, Elena, Caroline, Bonnie, Mason and More

Michelle | Categories: Ian Somerhalder, Season 2 | Comments Off on THE VAMPIRE DIARIES’ Ian Somerhalder on Damon’s Issues with Katherine, Elena, Caroline, Bonnie, Mason and More

It was six years ago this week that LOST premiered and we met Oceanic survivor, Boone Carlyle. But just one season into THE VAMPIRE DIARIES and it’s hard to imagine Somerhalder as anyone other than Damon Salvatore.

The show is on fire right now — though, lucky for Somerhalder, Damon is not… thanks to Elena who came to his aid in last week’s episode.

Looking toward this Thursday and the season ahead, I spoke with Ian about what’s already transpired and what we can expect to come…

Last time we talked on the phone, just before the season 1 finale, you said that you were feeling pretty uncomfortable with the reveal of Damon’s “sensitive side,” if you will. And we’ve certainly seen more of that in the past couple weeks. So are you still unnerved by the whole concept of Damon being vulnerable? Still feeling the same way?
Ian Somerhalder:
Still feeling the same way. No, I just think that Damon’s edge is a good counter to a lot of the emotion on the show. And I just feel like I’m falling flat on my face when it comes to seeing his softer side. So it’s a battle within myself, which maybe works, because it’s definitely a battle within Damon.

Sep 23rd: Ian Somerhalder Heads to Washington Energy Summit

Linda | Categories: Events, Ian Somerhalder | Comments Off on Ian Somerhalder Heads to Washington Energy Summit

Although Ian Somerhalder is in the thick of a busy filming schedule for season two of his obsessed-over CW show “The Vampire Diaries,” he’s taking a day off — and for a good cause. Somerhalder is heading to Washington, D.C. where he’s attending the Washington Energy Summit on Thursday.

Somerhalder will meet with members of both houses of Congress to discuss the importance of green/alternative energy and technology. The actor has been vocal about the effects of the BP oil spill and recently partnered up with the portable energy company Go Green Mobile Power. When we caught up with him on the eve of his big trip, Somerhalder was brimming with excitement over getting to be a part of the conversation at a national level.

“It’s really, really cool,” he told MTV News about his participation in the summit. “I think there’s a lot of anger and frustration and fear and determination in this exact moment in our country in the wake of this huge oil spill. But the government, they know enough to figure it out and they’re taking steps to do that, so I’m really honored to be invited to go and speak with these people. I’ll try not to screw up,” he joked. “I can’t wait to put my thinking cap on and get to Washington and have really structured and really inspiring conversations with people and hopefully something comes out of it.”

As for his partnership with Go Green Mobile Power, Somerhalder said the company has generated much attention and he hopes to have one of their green-energy generators on the “Vampire Diaries” set soon.

“Warner Bros. [loves them] and the network are figuring out right now how to get that thing on set,” he explained. “There has been a lot of interest from the city of Los Angeles, Mayor Villaraigosa; there’s a lot going on. It’s really exciting stuff, we’re going to go full bore and get these things out there producing green power.”

Somerhalder is a man with a plan. For information on how you can get involved, visit WashingtonEnergySummit.com. But don’t think we cornered the star and didn’t get any “Diaries” dish. Stay with MTVNews.com for more on what’s next for Damon.

Sep 23rd: Birthday Project: Ian Somerhalder Bday Project

Natalie | Categories: Birthday Projects, Ian Somerhalder, St Tammany Humane Society | 1 Comment

The Ian Somerhalder Birthday Project

As we all know, Ian Somerhalder is a strong activist when it comes to causes he believes in. We often see him spreading the word on items he truly cares about on his twitter.

When I first started following Ian on twitter, I noticed he was visiting animal shelters alot and telling people to go adopt the pets he was visiting. At one point, he even offered that if someone went to adopt a certain pet, he would personally meet up with that person the park later that day to play with the dog.

I personally have a soft spot for animals. I spent the better part of my tweens & teens with a great little dog named Mitsou (Mitsou is Japanese for honey). And even though it was a short period of time, I had a cat in my early 20s (Her name was Minime).

Minime was really special to me because she was my first pet while an adult. But after having her for 1 year, I had to bring her to a shelter. I was moving across the country and wasn’t allowed to bring my pet with me. Nobody at home wanted to adopt her. So I had no choice but to bring her to the SPCA.

It was a very emotional time for me because just 6 months before, Mitsou had to be put down because she was very ill. This was nearly 10 years ago and to do this day, I still don’t know if Minime had found a new home. Unfortunately, because of overcrowding, alot of animals at my local SPCA do get destroyed if not adopted. This leaves me with the thought that Minime may not have survived. But she was such a loveable cat with a great personality. So I always held that hope that she found a happy home.

Knowing that my pet may not have survived still hurts me to this day. I feel that there is a special home for every pet that ends up in shelters. This is why I’m happy to support the good work that St. Tammany Humane Society does, even if I’m in another country.

With that said, I’m very pleased to announce our unique birthday project for Ian.

Blood Falls, Ian Fan, Ian Somerhalder Network and Vampire Diaries Source will be raising funds for the St. Tammany Humane Society, located in Ian’s hometown of Convington, Louisiana.

Click here for details on how you can help to be apart of a unique and exciting birthday project for our favourite badass vampire. 🙂

Sep 17th: Vampire Diaries’: Ian Somerhalder on Blood, Oil, and the New Season

Michelle | Categories: Ian Somerhalder, News, Season 2 | Comments Off on Vampire Diaries’: Ian Somerhalder on Blood, Oil, and the New Season

For Ian Somerhalder it’s good being the bad guy. The new season of “The Vampire Diaries” premieres tonight on the CW, and Somerhalder, a former cast member on “Lost,” has become a breakout star in his role as Damon Salvatore, a handsome, anti-heroic vampire who sometimes shows a softer side.

In real life, Somerhalder, a native of Covington, Louisiana, recently helped launch Go Green Mobile Power, a company that provides solar, wind and biodiesel mobile energy generators. Somerhalder says he’s been inspired to take more action in his life after meeting spiritualist Deepak Chopra, whom he calls his “new bff.”

The Wall Street Journal spoke to Somerhalder about his role on the show, and what the coming season has in store.

Speakeasy: What can we look forward to from Damon this season?

Ian Somerhalder: Some changes. Changes in the sense that in the season finale, Damon raised the question that he came to this town with the intention of destroying everyone and now [things have changed]. He started building relationships and when we forge relationships, we raise the stakes, and I think having said that he’s not as hell bent on destroying the town this season. He and his brother are going to discover a few problems, outside of Elena, and they’re going to have to bind together to protect what they love and to protect each other.

Is there anything you can tell us about the new season without giving away any spoilers?

Katherine comes back and I’ve been eagerly awaiting Katherine despite the fact that it’s going to make Damon’s life harder. Katherine presents a plethora of problems because she’s a threat to everyone. She can kill anyone of us in the blink of an eye and that poses a very serious problem. I think that the Lockwood family is also going to pose pretty serious problems for the Salvatores. [With the ability to dive back into time], you get the assemblage of the events that lead up to right now. You get to see normal high school kids sort of battling these ultra supernatural issues. It’s going to be cool.
