After six years of starring on “The Vampire Diaries,” Somerhalder went behind the camera for the very first time to direct Thursday’s episode, titled “The Downward Spiral.” In her supportive message, Reed wrote, “@iansomerhalder you blow me away.”

“I am beyond inspired by the person you are, but mostly I am humbled by your work ethic and desire to always push for the best in yourself and others,” she continued. Reed added, “With distinct style and unwavering vision you directed something you should be truly proud of. Congratulations to you!!!!! All of your hard work paid off. Your talent has trickled into every facet of your life, and this is only the beginning.”
