@iansomerhalder: Sitting under a palm tree, in a chair at Poquito Más,my favorite little taco stand in Burbank California next to the CW&Warner Bros.Why is that cool? Because, I just realized that 5 years ago, almost to the day- I was sitting right here drinking an iced tea waiting for my food and going over my lines before Auditioning for Damon Salvatore, just before I walked into the studio to get this show. Wow! 5 YEARS! It’s been an amazing time since then. I’m so grateful to the powers that be at CBS, The CW&Warner Bros for taking a chance on me and giving me this role. Even though I bombed my 1st Network test at the CW…Kevin Williamson had to fight tooth and nail for me-I LOVE YOU KEVIN FOR YOUR VISION, DIRECTION, BROTHERSHIP AND CHANGING MY LIFE.You, Julie Plec and this team really created something special. We all thank you, the devoted fans and the audience of this thing we call, The Vampire Diaries Love you all Ian and Damon

Damon’s pain in 5x18…


#AskKristin are Damon fans going to suffer in the season finale?
Damon fans, start gearing up for an emotional hour when The Vampire Diaries signs off in May. “There’s quite a lot of suffering and celebration in the last two episodes,” Julie Plec warned teased. “Because of Markos’s efforts to make the town of Mystic Falls a magic-free zone and the imminent destruction of the Other Side, lots of lives are in jeopardy and Damon has to, as he says, ‘strap on his hero hair.’”


Longtime fans will not want to miss the season five finale as we’re hearing some familiar faces will be popping up in Mystic Falls. Plus, EP Caroline Dries teases that the finale’s cliffhanger is “up there” with the series’ best, including Katherine chopping off Uncle John’s fingers in season one.
