"The Vampire Diaries" is getting ready to give Damon a bit of happiness on CW, and now fans are being given new inside scoop on the season ahead from Ian Somerhalder. On Wednesday, Sept. 18, The Official Vampire Diaries Twitter page shared a new video interview featuring the actor. Check out the previously released photos for the season five premiere here, and check out the previously released season five cast photos here.
Damon finally has the girl he has wanted since season one, and he will have some happiness to start off season five, but with that happiness he will experience some 'dark' times as well. It is Mystic Falls after all. Happiness cannot last forever, and Somerhalder makes that clear.
However, the actor also explains the way he sees the season ahead. He doesn't look at it as an actor or a character. He looks at as a writer would, and he is looking forward to 'the valleys and the peaks' Damon will experience during season five.
These low points will include him finding out about Stefan's predicament and dealing with Elena's time away at college. A long distance relationship is never easy. The added vampire factor and age difference will make things interesting for this new couple.
"The Vampire Diaries" will return to CW on Oct. 3.
