Ian Somerhalder recently talked to TVGuide.com, and I’ve picked out the juiciest bits. Surprisingly, this interview focused more on the range of Somerhalder’s career than on The Vampire Diaries. Even though Ian was doing this round of interviews to promote the season finale. Also, I think he gave away something MAJOR about the Lost finale.
On getting the news that his character, Boone, in Lost was going to die:
“You go the whole gamut of ‘What did I do wrong? What didn’t I do right?’ It’s something that’s impossible not to take personally, but you can’t,” he says. “Actors always think it’s about them, but it’s really not. It’s about the story.”
About his Vampire Diaries cast mates:
“We’re the luckiest kids in Hollywood right now.”
On Boone getting a proper ending on Lost:
“Wow, man, it was gratifying,” he says. “Watching people who’ve become like my family, seeing what it would be like for Boone to be this certain way.”
WHAT CERTAIN WAY? From the article: “He reports that Boone will get a proper ending in the series finale, an experience to which he assigns several adjectives, including cool, simple, emotional and beautiful”
