Ian Somerhalder

Ian Somerhalder was born in Louisiana on December 8, 1978. He began modeling as a kid, and decided to purse acting after high school. His first big role was as one of the leads in 2000’s short-lived “Dawson’s Creek” spinoff, “Young Americans.” He would go on to act opposite James Van Der Beek again in the 2002 movie, “The Rules of Attraction.”

In 2004, Somerhalder was cast on “Lost,” as Boone, one of the castaways stranded on a mysterious island. Though no longer a regular after the first season, he returned to make appearances for the duration of the popular series, including the finale. In 2009, Somerhalder scored a show of his own, when he and Paul Wesley signed on to play the leads in “The Vampire Diaries” on The CW. The show, one of the network’s most beloved series, is currently in its sixth season, and will begin in its seventh in the fall of 2015.

Aside from acting, two of Somerhalder’s biggest passions are environmentalism and animal rights. He frequently uses social media to champion various causes, including conservation. He began the Ian Somerhalder Foundation in 2010 to “empower, educate and collaborate with people and projects to positively impact the planet and its creatures.”

Somerhalder had a years-long relationship with his “Vampire Diaries” co-star Nina Dobrev, with whom he plays an on-and-off couple for their show. They broke up in 2013, and Somerhalder began dating Nikki Reed the following year. His engagement to Reed was confirmed in early 2015.
