7 Things You Don't Know About Ian Somerhalder

Vampire Diaries and Lost hunk Ian Somerhalder talks “7 Things” with Newsweek.

The 30-year-old actor shared, “I auditioned for [Jason Stackhouse on] True Blood and couldn’t rock it to convince [creator] Alan Ball that that was my role. I didn’t get it and I was very bummed. I couldn’t watch True Blood until now because now I have my own role. But before that, I was convinced I couldn’t play a vampire because I blew the audition.”

Wooo I love Ian! I watch True Blood too. I’m glad he plays in VD. His acting in Damon’s character is so good!

He has beautiful eyes. He should shave.
Lol–I can’t see him as Jason Stackhouse.

I’ve been crazy about him since the bed dancing scene in Rules of Attraction but kind of went off him for a bit after I heard he was ensnared in Parasite Hilton’s crab trap for a hot minute. Love him on VD and so happy he’ll reprise Boon on Lost!!!

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. I was so sad when he was killed off on LOST.

wow thats so cool- he actually seems intelligent, ive never been so impressed with an actor before. . . you can tell hes actually thinking as he speaks instead of there just being en empty space inside his brain like 99.9% of hollywood guys.
very impressed.

awww i love him!!!!

cant believe ..he’s so sexy and has gorgeous eyes ever!!

Lovin’ him!

he seems really smart….and wow..beautiful eyes….he’s a likeable guy…

Beautiful, he’s awesome in VD

This is one of my most favorite shows.

Thats a shame that he couldnt make as Jason Stackhouse… I’d LOVE to see IAN making wild sex scenes!! OMG..

But Im glad with DAMON.
He is freaking sexy and awesome same as Eric of True Blood!

True Blood’s loss is Diaries”s gain-he’s so hot and a great actor.

i first watched him on young americans, did anyone remembered that show? it was a filler show for 8-9 episodes, kinda like dawson’s creek, i knew he would be a big star then, even before lost.. and now he’s on one of my favorite tv shows the vampire diaries on cw!

Gorgeous eyes! Love him on TVD! He does such a great job as Damon! First villain I ever liked, because of that sarcastic type of humor he has going on. Can’t believe he didn’t make it on True Blood, but their lost is someone else’s gain because he is great on TVD, Damon is a much interesting character than Jason Stackhouse. I really like him in this interview, seems like a smart guy.
