Ian Somerhalder said he’s “not thrilled” that his show, “The Vampire Diaries,” is getting a spinoff, “The Originals.” In an interview with Digital Spy, Somerhalder said that he’s excited for “The Vampire Diaries” executive producer Julie Plec and his former co-stars, but added that his “only concern is Damon” and “The Vampire Diaries.”
"I get a little bit jealous that Damon’s kind of the bad boy. When Elena picks Damon, it’s like, he’s so bad, but so good. Meanwhile, Stefan is kind of like the stable, good guy. Personally, I don’t like that because I’m not that in real life. But, at the same time, Stefan has proven himself to be pretty erratic. I absolutely went bonkers when I got to play Ripper Stefan. It was like a dream come true to play Stefan as a dark, malicious guy. Saint Stefan can be great, as long as he’s flawed. I like when he breaks the rules every once in a while."
