The Vampire Diaries Exclusive: Ian Somerhalder on "Dark Underbelly" of Mystic Falls, Trouble for Delena and More!

by at . Comments

Damon Salvatore is 172 years old and Elena Gilbert is only 18.

But this wild age difference actually will not be the biggest obstacle in the way of the couple's happiness on The Vampire Diaries Season 5, not according to Ian Somerhalder.

We sat down with the star on the show's Atlanta set last week, asking him about the state of Delena as we head into new episodes this fall... what may get in their way as time moves along... whether Damon will be on to Silas masquerading as Stefan... and how fans can help with his ongoing charity efforts.

As always, it was an engaging, entertaining, informative interview with the affable actor. Watch now:

Love that Man, so beautifull and smart, and wonderful Human Being. Damon is My Favorite Character, and ians phenamonal Portrayal of that complex and multilayered character has a lot to do with that.

can't wait for Season 5. Ian is as gorgeous as ever. Jeremy and Damon living together should be hilarious. There had there problems, but somehow it seems, that jeremy is always drawn to Damon, and he was so proud when Damon let Him help, in season 4,.He said to Damon, see, I told you i can be a badass:-) and of course I can't wait for Delena.

When have Jeremy and Damon ever gotten along? They haven't since season 1 pre-Jeremy getting his memories back.

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

Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
