One time we told Ian that we changed the cameras and the network was cutting the budget and there would be no filters and he was getting very stressed out that he didn't look good on camera,” he revealed at EyeCon, a TVD convention in Atlanta, Georgia, on November 3. “We kept that going for a while.”
