Know Why ‘Vampire Diaries’ Star Ian Somerhalder Loves Female Directors
“The Vampire Diaries” star Ian Somerhalder compared female directors to male directors and guess what Nina Dobrev’s ex had to say when choosing between the two!
“The Vampire Diaries” hunk Ian Somerhalder revealed that he loves working with female directors, but why? Can’t he relate with male directors or he just like playing his character in a woman’s command?
According to Yibada, Somerhalher gushes about his lovely wife Nikki Reed, his environment-focused foundation the “Ian Somerhalder Foundation” and his love for female directors.
In his interview with Variety, the 36-year-old actor admitted that he prefers female directors than male directors.
“I hate to say it, but women are so much deeper than men,” Somerhalder said before adding women “come at things from much more layered, emotional perspective.” He continued. “They’re much more in tune with the human psyche.”
On the other hand, it seems like declaring his love for female director has something to do with TVD’s episode 10 director, Deb Chow, whom he describe as the name that everyone should look out for as “she is no f*cking joke, man.”
Somerhalder revealed that episode 10 is all about his character, Damon Salvatore and he thinks everything just fall into its right places “from set to producers to wardrobe to everyone.”
Moreover, the actor proudly laid down other details about TVD. He noted that it was the first time since early on Season 1 when it was just the creators of the show, Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson, staying up all night till morning writing a story.
For Somerhalder, the episode “is being well-executed” to the point where he thinks that its worthy of being submitted because it’s just so “on point.”
“Those episodes and the way they’re being written and the way they’re getting shot, I’m grateful for it,” Somerhalder said.
“The Vampire Diaries” Season 7 will air in the new timeslot (now on Fridays) and will resume January 29 next year.
