The Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder realizes that people draw similarities between the CW series in which he stars and Twilight, but he admits he’s never actually seen the Twilight movies.
“Let me first say, I appreciate Twilight in every way shape and form,” Somerhalder says, “I’ve never seen the movies, purposely, because I don’t want to make any comparison, but their phenomenal box office success paved the way for our show to get a green light.”
“I am very thankful to the success of Twilight. Go Twilight. Thank you.” the actor says.
“You have True Blood, which is the R-rated HBO version, which a 13-year-old girl can’t watch with her mum. Then Vampire Diaries falls in this little niche, this place, this primetime network version.”
The Vampire Diaries airs on Thursdays on the CW.
