I really wanted an excuse to post some Ian Somerhalder (undeniably beyond gorgeous), and thankfully found one. In the video below the Vampire Diaries cast talk about how if it weren’t for Twilight, this vampire craze wouldn’t be as incredibly popular as it is now. I really love this cast too! Very sweet people. Check it out:
Here is a new interview with the insanely gorgeous Ian Somerhalder (Damon on Vampire Diaries) that he did with Rolling Stone. At about 3:42 of this video he completely credits Twilight for having his job on the hit show ‘Vampire Diaries.’ I have recently developed a HUGE crush on Damon – he is undeniably beautiful… to say the least.
Paul Wesley, Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder of The Vampire Diaries scored the cover of the upcoming February Nylon Magazine.Inside they talk about how their series follows in Twiligh’s footsteps:
Paul on the success of the show: “Do I think the show would be successful as it is, if it weren’t for Twilight?No.”
Nina on the similarities with Twilight and True Blood:“When the show first started. . . you automatically thought Twilight. But once you continue, there’s a whole other side of it that goes a lot deeper. . . It’s about letting everyone know that we’re different but we all respect each other.”
I love how Paul is to the point with a simple “No.” lol.

Just got my new November issue of Teen Vogue – and inside there is a small interview with The Vampire Diaries star Paul Wesley where he talks about hanging out with the Twilight cast in Vancouver. Here is some of what Paul had to say:
On The Twilight Cast:
“The cast was staying at our hotel-we saw them everywhere and hung out all the time. They’re actually really nice people.”
On Twilight & Vampire Diaries Comparisons:
“They have vampires and high school romance in common, but that’s about it.”
On Making Sure Twilight Didn’t Influence His Character:
“The minute I was cast, I plowed through all the books.” And he made a point of not reading or watching Twilight. “I didn’t want to be influenced by it at all.”
It’s cool to hear that they’ve actually hung out and get along.
Vampire Diaries star Paul Wesley spoke with MTV about Twilight & Robert Pattinson comparisons recently. Here is some of what Paul had to say:
“It’s sort of inevitable, because the characters are so similar. But I guess I haven’t been getting it that bad, because I’ve been stuck here in my own little world shooting, and I’m not exposed to it a ton,” he told MTV News about the comparisons. “I don’t really have any defense, because I don’t know anything about Edward Cullen.”
“I don’t really have a series of things that make me different from Edward Cullen, but it’s just sort of inevitable. [Robert Pattinson is] playing a vampire, I’m playing a vampire. We’re both in love with a girl who’s a human, and ['Twilight'] takes place in high school [too], and it’s like, ‘OK, I totally get it,’ ” he said. “I just think there’s going to be obvious differences and obvious similarities, and it’s all good.”
I actually like Paul. Robert Pattinson is number one, of course, but at the end of the day, Paul is doing his job – acting. The stories do have their differences, and definitely have their similarities, but it can’t all fall back onto Paul’s shoulders. He shows up to work to do his job… he doesn’t write the scripts. However, he does handle the comparisons in interviews very well!
