IAN SOMERHALDER APPRECIATION WEEK
Day Four - Favorite Ian’s role in a movie/show
I think everyone who knows me is well aware of my endless love for Damon Salvatore and, most of all, for the incredibly talent Ian has in playing him in such a perfect way. Damon’s character is branded in my soul in ways I think no character has ever before, and this is mostly because of Ian. Every emotion, every facial expression, every tear, every smirk, every sexy moment, every single shade of Damon’s complex personality are so real and alive because Ian pours his heart in this character and it’s something clearly visible when you look at Damon. All of Ian’s passion and emotions, are so linked to Damon, it would be impossible to me to imagine someone else playing him. Ian is Damon and Damon is Ian, in all the good ways.
BUT I have a freaking soft spot for Ian playing the good guy, too, and I loved him playing Tyler in “Wake” so much. The movie is super cute and funny and Ian’s so comfortable in that role, so sweet and lovely, that my heart melts every time I rewatch it. Plus, short hair, rosy cheeks and that smile? How could I even resist? And I don’t mind if Ian keeps saying he’s not that good on playing those kind of roles, because, in my humble opinion, he’s believable playing both the good and the bad guy, because he’s amazing and talented like that.
