Ian Somerhalder puts on his sunglasses as he leaves a restaurant after grabbing lunch with a friend on Thursday afternoon (February 28) in West Hollywood, Calif.
The 34-year-old actor’s Vampire Diaries executive producer Julie Plec recently opened up about what’s to come with his character Damon now that Elena turned off her humanity.
“Poor Damon, the big, lingering question that he’s been feeling from the beginning is ‘Is this love that she feels for me real?’” she told Zap2It. “He doesn’t believe it’s real because he doesn’t believe he deserves it, and he doesn’t believe he can be happy, but he wants so desperately to know.”
The week before, Ian stepped out with his girlfriend co-star Nina Dobrev at the 2013 Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party.
