Ian Somerhalder & 'The Vampire Diaries' Cast Give Their Characters Advice Heading into Season Seven (JJ Interview)

The town of Mystic Falls is seemingly under new leadership in the upcoming seventh season of The Vampire Diaries, and every character is faced with new challenges.

JustJared.com recently caught up with stars Ian Somerhalder, Paul Wesley, Candice King, Kat Graham, Michael Malarkey, and Annie Wersching on set in Atlanta, Ga.

We asked each actor to give their characters one piece of advice for season seven. Check out what they said:

Ian on Damon: “It’s impossible. You can’t talk sense into Damon Salvatore. He’s 174 years old. He makes awful decisions based on his heart and his own selfishness. You can’t reason with someone like that. I wouldn’t even waste time giving him advice because he wouldn’t listen.”

Candice on Caroline: “If this was the same question at the end of season six, I’d say, ‘Oh, Caroline’s totally got it figured out right now. She’s on the right track. She’s got a great perspective on her life, and what she needs, and who she is.’ And then coming into season seven, I might be like, ‘Oh, girl. We need to have some talks. We need to sit down with a couple glasses of wine.’”

Annie on Lily: “Trust no one. I think she sort of leads with her heart a lot and wants to believe that people have good intentions, and that loyalty is loyalty, and you don’t go back on that. But…I would tell her to run from Mystic Falls (laughs).”

The Vampire Diaries premieres on Thursday, October 8 @ 8PM on The CW!

The Vampire Diaries' Ian Somerhalder & Kat Graham Dish on Damon & Bonnie in Season Seven (JJ Interview)

The upcoming seventh season of The Vampire Diaries may be over a week away, but we have some Damon and Bonnie scoop to hold you over.

JustJared.com recently sat down with both Ian Somerhalder and Kat Graham on set in Atlanta where they gave us some scoop on their characters.

“We actually find her, Damon, and Alaric (Matt Davis), they are not in Mystic Falls,” Kat said. “By the time they get back, they have to deal with things in their own very interesting way.”

The trio is on a trip to Amsterdam, but there’s still that bit of resentment there between the duo fans have dubbed “Bamon.”

If you don’t remember, Bonnie’s life is still linked to Elena’s (Nina Dobrev), meaning Damon’s girlfriend won’t wake up until Bonnie is dead.

“Every time he looks at Bonnie, he only sees NOT Elena,” Ian told us. “He does love her and it’s an unfortunate situation that they find themselves in because it’s that thing of every time he looks at her, ‘Oh, if I just push her off the side of this building, I’d get Elena back’…It’s this volley between ‘I love this woman as a friend, but if something happens to her, I get my girl back.’”

The Vampire Diaries premieres on Thursday, October 8 @ 8PM on The CW!

Ian Somerhalder Compares Technology to a Disease

Ian Somerhalder and Sophia Bush hold up their letter tiles while competing in the first-ever live Words with Friends tournament on Thursday (September 10) in Burbank, Calif.

The 36-year-old Vampire Diaries actor’s team won the charity tournament and a $5,000 prize was donated to the ASPCA.

Ian recently spoke to CNET about the power of technology and he compared it to a disease.

“The amazing thing about the tech world, when you look at, say, social networking and social media, is that they allow us to transfer information literally at the snap of a finger,” Ian said. “However, we’ve become so reliant on tech that we no longer rely on each other.”

“When you look down at your phone and it says 3G [service], and you say, ‘Oh, my God, it’s just 3G,’ that is a disease. That is a 21st-century disease,” he continued. “That is not a good thing that we get so impatient. That trickles down to how impatient we are with our animals, with our kids, with our teachers, with people in traffic.”
