Ian said that Damon is going to stick with the meanness for a good while,but then there will be moments where we may see a little humanity in him. He states, ” He sticks with it for a little while. I think that’s his thing, and he has such a good time doing it. There are moments where you may see some sort of humanity in him, and there are moments when you may see that he may not be as intense as he appears to be.”
“Stefan is not a fan of Damon, and for good reason. Whatever happened in the past, something happened between these two to yield an enormous amount of animosity, equally shared.
Damon harbors a lot of anger toward Stefan for something he did in the past. So at any given moment, Stefan finds himself in a place where he’s happy, Damon will show up to ruin it. And that’s intense. Make no mistake about it, Damon loves his brother. He would never let anything happen to his brother.
He’s the only one he has. And to be honest with you, Stefan is the only person who truly understands Damon, who understands what he’s been through, understands what he’s coming from. So in that sense, the relationship is one-sided in that Damon does love his brother, and he misses his brother.”
Ian Somerhalder does an amazing job with Damon. The dynamics of the relationship with Stefan and Damon are so much fun to watch.
What do you think of what Ian had to about Damon? Do you think he understands the character well?
