The Vampire Diaries actor Ian Somerhalder has revealed that he had so much that he wanted to say, during his testimony in front of US Congress, that he didn’t have time to get it all out. Read more over at FanShare.
Somerhalder explained, “I don’t remember the feeling of being nervous, I just remember wanting it to be right. It didn’t go perfectly. You get five minutes, and my oral ended up reading longer than I expected it to, so I couldn’t get it all out. There are things I wish I would have said, but in the end, I wanted to make sure I did it right.”
32 year old The Vampire Diaries actor Ian Somerhalder has claimed that he expects the latest season of the hit CW vampire show to kick some ass. Ian also admitted that the whole of the cast get along so well and there is very rarely any tension on set.
Somerhalder explained, “The whole Twilight thing is about to be over. And teenage girls can’t watch True Blood with their parents – that would just get weird. So we’re getting ready to kick some major ass this season.” He added, “[It’s] a total frickin’ lovefest.”
Ian Somerhalder has previously teased fans about what they can expect to see happen between his character Damon and Elena, played by Nina Dobrev. He has also suggested what could happen between Damon and Stefan, played by Paul Wesley. The Vampire Diaries season three premieres on CW on September 15.

Vampires are taking the sci-fi/horror awards show by storm this year – “True Blood’s” Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, Alexander Skarsgard, Stam Trammell, Kristin Bauer and Rutina Wesley will be in attendance, along with The CW’s “Vampire Diaries” stars Paul Wesley, Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder. “Twilight” ingenue Kristen Stewart has also reportedly been confirmed to attend.
The Scream Awards will be held on Saturday, but will air on Tuesday, October 19, at 9 PM on Spike.
His piercing blue eyes are one of the first things you notice about Ian Somerhalder, who was one of the first characters to be killed off of “Lost.” Now he is back from the dead — actually, he is undead — with his role as bad-boy vampire Damon Salvatore, who steams up the action on The CW’s “The Vampire Diaries.” ET chats with the Louisiana-born actor to get his take on sinking his teeth into his role.
ET: Are you a fan of the whole vampire craze?
Ian Somerhalder: I am from New Orleans, so I grew up with Anne Rice. From a very young age, I knew a lot about vampires and always wanted to play one.
ET: How did you prepare for playing a vampire?
Ian Somerhalder: I don’t like blood. Blood freaks me out a little bit. So when you think about being hungry, for example, think of a time when you are stuck on a plane, or wherever you were that you didn’t have food, or you see people starving in the world, think about how intense that is. Imagine being a vampire and having 160 years of life experience — knowledge of humanity, of life and death, of everything — then on top of that your senses are heightened by 1000 percent. All of the things you hear, you have to learn to block out, and your sense of needing to eat is constant and 1000 times more than we have. It is a very intense proposition, so trying to inhabit someone who has that much knowledge of the world … it is a feat. I hope I am doing it right.
