Ian Somerhalder Buttons Up in Prestige Hong Kong, April 2013
Damon Salvatore may kill by instinct on The Vampire Diaries, but Ian Somerhalder takes a more considered approach to life. Sitting down with Prestige Hong Kong magazine, the blue-eyed actor talks dishes on life on the set of TVD, the possibility of playing Christian Grey, and how he stays true to himself through the ups and down of fame.
On what fans may not know about TVD: “Paul Wesley is one of the funniest people I’ve ever known. We have the best craft service in the business. We have the most incredible crew on the planet and I show up to work and bite hot chicks every day. It could be worse.”
On the possibility of planning Christian Grey: “There are so many guys up for this role. I’m having a meeting with the producer of that movie, like many, many, many other actors are. It would be a very cool experience for whoever gets that role. But until there’s more information, that’s really all I have.”
On the actors he’d love to work with: “When I was growing up watching movies, the ones I watched daily, almost, were the old Pacino movies, the Godfathers. If Cary Grant were still alive, I would love to do a movie with him. You have phenomenal directors like Clint Eastwood, actors like Sean Penn, Ed Harris. [...] I would love to do a scene with a guy like Robert Duvall, Daniel Day-Lewis. That guy is my hero.”
