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.
