The Vampire Diaries has seen its fair share of surprising hookups over the past five seasons, but it has yet to explore the possibility of Bamon — Bonnie and Damon. Well, it turns out Vampire Diaries star Kat Graham is a Bamon shipper!

When Just Jared asked the 24-year-old which of her co-stars she’d like to have a sexy scene with, Kat replied, “Ian [Somerhalder].” (Wouldn’t we all like to be so lucky, Kat?) But it’s not because Ian is a total hottie!

She added: “Everyone is going to be like, ‘Oh it’s because he’s so hot.’ But it’s actually because we work the exact same way with [our acting coach] Ivana Chubbuck, and I think we would just do the most interesting work together as actors. That’s the only reason.”

Bonnie and Damon have always had a contentious relationship — she’s a witch; he’s a vampire; they’re supposed to hate each other — but over the seasons, the two have gone from wanting each other to die to risking everything to help the other survive. (Let's never forget Bamon's emotional Season 4 hug.) This season, Damon went to extreme lengths to bring Bonnie back from The Other Side. Of course, he did it for Elena, but that’s progress, right?

In The Vampire Diaries book series, Bonnie and Damon share a very deep connection, so it’s easy to see why Bamon fans believe so strongly in the relationship. And with Stefan getting so close to Caroline this season, we think it’s time for Damon to find his own bestie (sorry ‘Ric) — and Bonnie seems like the best fit! Her rational and calm nature would perfectly compliment Damon’s irrational and explosive behavior. Hey, they do say opposites attract, right?

But what do you think Vampire Diaries fans: should Bonnie and Damon have a steamy hookup? Sound off in the comments!
