“The Vampire Diaries” actor, Ian Somerhalder will stay as Damon Salvatore even reports says that he will be killed in Season 7, following his on-screen partner Nina Dobrev’s exit. Read On!
In his chat with E! News, he confirmed that his character in “The Vampire Diaries” will survive even without his female counterpart, Elena, played by Nina Dobrev.
Somerhalder said that: “All I can say about that is that they were great characters separate, they were great characters together, and they remain great characters separated.”
He also added that Damon will stay as Damon but in the upcoming episodes, viewers will see him evolve—“ he’s still having a blast and he’s still saying super-smarmy, ridiculously overly confident, very wildly embarrassing and degrading things and he will continue to do that, but with a little love for Elena in his heart.”
He told People that though Damon has Elena in his heart who was put for the next 60 years, he is now focused on getting Alaric through his tragedy.
The 36-year-old actor said that his character is “really taking a lot of the energy and he’s putting it into Alaric” before adding that the latter somewhat helped him forget his sorrow. As a best friend, Alaric is really doing his best to be with his pal. Aside from that, Damon also has Bonnie, who’s been very caring.
Reports indicated that in the seventh season of the series, Bonnie and Damon will have many scenes together which made BaMon fans anticipate a hint of a romantic relationship between the two characters. However, in Somerhalder’s interview with E! News, the latter revealed that it doesn’t mean that Elena will not be with him this season, he will be out looking for a new love.
Nikki Reed’s husband said in his interview that Damon and Elena are still a couple, and he still loves his girlfriend.
On the other hand, KPop Starz cited rumors that Somerhalder is quite aware that his and Dobrev’s on-screen love team, DeLena, has a huge fanbase and is still generating big viewership for the series.
The cited site claimed that the actor is using this opportunity to promote the series. The article said that Somerhalder is using Dobrev and DeLena for the series’ promo.
The actor is allegedly reported to use their on-screen team up by talking about DeLena, “invoking the memory of the loveteam.”
This rumor could only lead to one speculation—is this the reason why he’s been sending messages to fans that “Elena will always be in his heart… and so will Nina Dobrev?”
