FanBolt had the chance to visit the set of The Vampire Diaries this week and chat with series star Ian Somerhalder. One of the first things press asked him was what was next for Damon and Elena (Delena) since he told her to go be free and be happy. How long will that actually last?
“It’s something that I don’t think he ever anticipated. I mean never in a million years… What was that movie – Sleepless in Seattle. Imagine you’re away for four months, and you come back and the one woman you want to be with doesn’t even – not even just doesn’t remember you – remembers nothing – only the bad shit. You didn’t put the toilet seat down, you slept with her sister… all the bad things you may have done she knows.” Ian answers. “So that’s going to be invariably difficult to recover from. How do you do that? I think in his heart of hearts he ultimately realizes – hey listen, you were happy without me. I think it was an incredibly selfless thing for Damon to do.”
