Leave it to EW to get even more inside information about the upcoming reveal of Damon Savatore’s bedroom and bathroom. The bedroom will make “its” debut in next week’s episode.
Like many viewers of The Vampire Diaries, I’ve been wondering where Damon sleeps when he’s not having sex on the living room floor. We’ll get our answer when the show returns with new episodes next week. Exec producer Julie Plec says they’ve been waiting to build that set until they had a reason to need it — and apparently they found it. Ian Somerhalder admits the addition took him by surprise: “I never imagined Damon having a bedroom,” he says. “I figured he always slept up in a rafter or somewhere atop of an oak tree. I honestly didn’t know.” But he’s more than happy with what Plec, exec producer Kevin Williamson, and production designer Garreth Stover created for him. “By virtue of the fact that Damon is not the most sentimental individual, he doesn’t keep anything from the past. It’s not a room full of antiquities and memories, such as Stefan’s,” Somerhalder says. “But it’s big, it’s very masculine, and it’s classy.” It’s also sexy. “The one really amazing thing, of course,” he continues, “[is] they had this bed custom-made. This thing, I’m not even kidding you, it’s gigantic. You splice together two king-sized beds… Damon could fit an entire sorority on this bed, which I’m sure at some point he will.” (Williamson likes to refer to it as Damon’s “throne.”)
