Ian Somerhalder stars as Damon Salvatore on the CW's The Vampire Diaries. Damon is the older of the two vampire brothers and is definitely the darker of the two.
He's spent most of his life trying to resurrect a vampire he fell for in 1864, Katherine. But he has developed feelings for Elena, creating a quasi love triangle on the show.
You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.Damon
You are literally the best person I've ever known. And for me to think I could ever change you was giving me way too much credit and you way not enough… you're the good. And I need a little good in my life.Damon [to Elena]
