Ian Somerhalder Is Not Pleased With ‘The Originals’ Because It’s Taking Away From ‘The Vampire Diaries’
Ian Somerhalder was chatting with Digital Spy when he revealed that he’s not too excited about The Vampire Diaries spin-off, The Originals. The latter will also air on the CW and focuses on the Mikaelson siblings played by Joseph Morgan, Daniel Gillies and Claire Holt.
Ian said of the show, “I’m excited for Julie [Plec], and for Joseph and all my people, but I’m a selfish actor – I’m not a producer on the show, I’m not a writer. My only concern is Damon, and my show.”
You know, I think The Vampire Diaries is going to be just fine, and if anything then they can do cross over stuff! Ian can be all up on The Originals while the siblings come back to Vampire Diaries. I am all about this.
So this only means there will be double the awesome bloopers. What are your thoughts on Ian’s comments? Think he and the Vampire folks have nothing to worry about? Sound off in the comments!
