Ian Somerhalder to Rolling Stone: The Vampire Diaries to Kick Ass!

at . Comments

A blood-starving Stefan. A star-crossed relationship. A new, dangerous villain.

The Vampire Diaries is clearly gearing up for a strong, suspenseful third season - premiering on September 15! In less than a month! - and Ian Somerhalder sees this as the perfect time to recruit new fans, such as those obsessed with a certain franchise on the big screen.

“The whole Twilight thing is about to be over," the actor tells Rolling Stone. "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.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Nina Dobrev is asked about portraying Elena and Katherine and responds: “They’re both in me. They’re both challenging, but they both feed a different part of my soul.”

As for life on set? What is it like between cast members? "A total frickin' lovefest," according to Somerhalder.

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.

Damon

Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.

Damon
