L.A. Times reporter Amy Kaufman caught up with Ian Somerhalder on last night’s 2011 Teen Choice Awards red carpet. Somewhere in here, Justin Bieber happens. Ian seems incredulous about people actually watching The Vampire Diaries (and very grateful), dances around some Season 3 hints, and touches on being an actor actively involved with charities/causes.
And Nina Dobrev Network strikes again, this time with video of Kat Graham, Michael Trevino, Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley accepting the Choice TV Show: Fantasy/Sci-Fi, Choice TV Actor: Fantasy/Sci-Fi, Choice TV Actress: Fantasy/Sci-Fi, Choice TV: Female Scene Stealer and Choice TV: Male Scene Stealer. Check out the video on YouTube or below:
Thanks to Nina Dobrev Network for this: Video of Paul Wesley, Nina Dobrev, and Ian Somerhalder presenting the Teen Choice Award for Choice Movie Actor: Romantic Comedy at tonight’s ceremony.
