Ian Somerhalder is known primarily for his steely blue gaze and starring role in The Vampire Diaries, but did you know that the star is also a passionate environmental activist? In 2010, Somerhalder launched the Ian Somerhalder Foundation (ISF), which empowers young people to start environmental projects—which is why we’ve named him one of this year’s Conde Nast Traveler Visionaries. He talks more about his foundation in the video.

Ian Somerhalder (“The Vampire Diaries,” “LOST”) and Luke Hemsworth will topline the cast of The Anomaly, an action thriller exploring the issue of global terrorism. Noel Clarke’s UK production company Unstoppable Entertainment announced that principal photography has commenced on the new sci-fi thriller last week.
The Anomaly’s original screenplay was written by Simon Lewis and will be directed by Noel Clarke. Lewis’ screenplay follows the travails of a traumatized ex-soldier who wakes up in the back of a van, alongside a kidnapped boy, to find that he only has only nine minutes and 37 seconds of consciousness to work out why and how he got there.
The film is produced by James Harris and Mark Lane of The Tea Shop & Film Company. The film will be shooting on location across London and also stars Clarke, Brian Cox and Alexis Knapp.
