In my sophomore year of high school, I had grown tired of all my friends at the lunch table raving about some show about vampires. I finally caved and went home that day and pulled the show up online.

This began my week or so long binge-watching of the very popular CW show The Vampire Diaries. I hadn’t expected to fall in love with the show. Honestly, from listening to friends talk about it, I expected some cheesy romance show where the characters happened to be vampires. However, the drama combined with comedy and very likeable and relatable characters drew me in.

But the number one reason for my addiction?

Ian Somerhalder and his amazing acting as his character Damon Salvatore. I can rant and rave about Ian and his character Damon for days, but let’s just stick with the basics.

Let’s just start off with how handsome he is.



Not only is Damon charmingly sarcastic, he’s also portrayed by the beyond attractive Ian. It’s a little ridiculous.

He’s also very into promoting The Vampire Diaries by posting awesome pictures from the set.

Outside of the show, he is very active in saving animals from cruelty and helping anyway he can.



Overall, Ian Somerhalder was the best thing to happen to The Vampire Diaries because his good looks and charm have been bringing all the girls to the yard for seven seasons now. If you haven’t given the show a chance, take my word for it and begin your Netflix binge right now. You will not regret it.
