Ian Somerhalder has revealed that he has a “heavier” role in the new season of The Vampire Diaries.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Somerhalder explained that he is not used to playing a nicer side of his character Damon.
“It’s not that I don’t like it, it’s just very counter-intuitive,” he said. “These guys [Nina Dobrev, Matt Davis and Paul Wesley] – I have so much respect for them because they have a lot of weight on their shoulders at all times in most of these scenes and I just kind of breeze in and kind of screw around.”
Somerhalder continued: “This whole new Damon thing, I have put a lot more heavy thought into in the sense that it’s heavier. It throws me off a bit.”
