The Vampire Diaries‘ holy trinity may be slightly disconnected in season five — Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Elena (Nina Dobrev) will struggle to keep their long-distance relationship alive, while Stefan (Paul Wesley) is still stuck at the bottom of a lake — but they’re coming together for a new batch of promo pics.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but the new poster for the upcoming fifth season of The Vampire Diaries says more than words ever could. Even with the Mikaelson family ditching Mystic Falls for The Originals, there’s still plenty of eye candy on the newly released promo art — is Damon (Ian Somerhalder) having his own private wet t-shirt contest? — which has more excited for The CW drama’s Oct. 3 return than ever.
I’d like to begin by noting that this promo for The Vampire Diaries‘ fifth season actually came out Aug. 30, but it was a holiday weekend, so I wouldn’t blame you if you missed it. And even if you saw it, it’s full of so many mind-blowing surprises, it’s worth a re-visit. Let’s begin with Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Elena (Nina Dobrev), who have definitely been enjoying their summer together.
With Stefan chilling in a box at the bottom of a lake, Silas is going to be free to run amok when The Vampire Diaries returns for its fifth season Oct. 3, and it looks like Paul Wesley is already comfortable with his new dark persona. The CW posted this picture, a behind-the-scenes outtake from the show’s newest photo shoot, to its Facebook page Aug. 20 — and we’re more pumped for “Stilas” than ever!
They’re the guys we all wish we had. From vampires to werewolves to (human) teachers, HollywoodLife.com has compiled a list of our top TV boyfriends — and those we really want to get snatched up by a lucky lady!
Just when we thought Damon and Stefan were back on good terms, Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley are facing off for Choice TV Actor: Fantasy/Sci-Fi at the Teen Choice Awards Aug. 11. This awards show is going to be a battle of the CW hotties! We’ve highlighted some of their best moments from season four, but it doesn’t make the choice any easier.
Well, here’s a real bummer: Paul Wesley and Torrey DeVitto — whom we enjoyed watching on The Vampire Diaries together, on and off, for the past two seasons — have decided to get a divorce. The actors “have decided to amicably split,” Paul’s rep confirms to People magazine. “They will continue to remain good friends.”
