“The Vampire Diaries” actor Ian Somerhalder, who plays Damon Salvatore in The CW’s hit show, doesn’t believe a romance between Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Damon will happen anytime soon. Elena would have to be crazy to give Damon a chance.
However, Ian admits that Elena makes Damon more human. Vampire Diaries fans want Elena and Damon to get together… I do! That would spice things up and could be a breaking point for the Salvatore brothers.
“I think she’d be crazy,” he said. “Damon is so dangerous, does all the wrong things, acts from a selfish place.”
He added: “I know this is going to sound contradictory, but the only time you ever see Damon acting remotely human is around Elena… There’s all these conflicting issues and emotions and thoughts.
“Elena brings out the good in Damon and in many ways Damon brings out the good in Elena. I think sometimes the people who do that to you, you often have the most complicated relationships with.”
There’s one “minor” obstacle in Elena and Damon’s way… he actually temporarily killed her brother Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen). Elena would be able to easily forget what a monster Damon can be, but she is the only one that will be able to change him. And Elena is the only person Damon actually cares about.
“I think it would be a long road for him and Elena,” he said. “I can’t imagine how he’s going to get back in her good graces. Short of ripping her necklace off and compelling her to forget, I don’t know how you get over that. The only truly redeeming quality I think Damon has is that he will do anything to protect her.”
Who is rooting for Damon and Elena to eventually get together in the future? There is still a long way to go, but Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley) is also not exactly that perfect “person” he appears to be. The vegan vampire goes nuts with a taste of human blood. I tell you no more…
