Damon Salvatore himself is going behind the camera to direct an episode of’The Vampire Diaries’, but will Ian Somerhalder have support from his fiancee, Nikki Reed, on set? HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY reveal the answer!
Ian Somerhalder, 36, is about to take on the role of a lifetime on The Vampire Diaries — director! But, will his lady love, Nikki Reed, 26, be on hand to support him while he directs his ex-girlfriend, Nina Dobrev, 26? That would be super awkward!
Ian Somerhalder: Will Nikki Reed Support His Directorial Debut?
It’s totally a big deal that Ian is going to be directing an upcoming episode of TVD, and his fiancee, Nikki, must be so proud of him for taking on the task!
However, will she be making any set visits to support her man? Unfortunately, it doesn’t look that way.
“One thing that has never been discussed has been having Nikki on set,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
“It’s not going to happen, they are separating business and pleasure.”
That’s probably for the best, especially considering Ian will more than likely be directing some steamy love scenes between him and his real-life ex, Nina.
“Nikki knows this is very important to him and she doesn’t want to be a distraction, so she will not be on set while he directs his episode.”
That’s pretty sweet. It’s also awesome that she’s not trying to overstep!
Nikki Made Ian A Good Luck Cake
Just before it was time for Ian to put on his directing hat, Nikki surprised him with a delicious present — a cake!
The cake, which looks like a vanilla loaf covered in chocolate chips and fresh strawberries, read: “Good Luck” and “I [heart] U.” How cute is that?

Tell us, HollywoodLifers — Do you think it’s a good idea for Nikki to stay away from The Vampire Diaries set?
