ETOnline chatted with Ian Somerhalder recently. Check out what he had to say about the upcoming 5th season of The Vampire Diaries!
ETonline: The premiere picks up a few months later, where do we find Damon?
Ian Somerhalder: In love and giddy and happy for the first time in, probably, a really long time. Nina [Dobrev] and I always joke about this, but despite the fact I’m 173 and she’s 18, they’re genuinely happy and it’s cute to see their dynamic. To see Damon as this guy in love is adorable
ETonline: When was the last time he was this happy?
Somerhalder: In the 1860s with Katherine. Even if he was with women throughout his life, which there were many of [laughs], it wasn’t that real thing. And the whole thing with Katherine was about the naivete of a 23-year-old boy. When you’re 23, you feel like a boy. Hell, I’m 33 and I still feel like a boy. But I think it’s still gotta be weird being with this woman who is the carbon copy of the woman who broke your heart; just a sweeter, even more beautiful version because she’s so pure.
