Ian Somerhalder sat down with The Hollywood Reporter to talk about (spoilers!) the season finale, and more generally about Damon as a character and how he’s evolved over time. Important to note: Ian talks about the last scene that he shot for the finale, which may not have anything to do with the last seen we see in the finale. Don’t freak out, okay?

    lol I love that Ian is so truthful and frank about the character he plays.  He doesn’t sugarcoat it.  

  • From Beginningg To End

    He said he’s 170…8 years older than Stefan putting him at 25 when he was turned.

     Ian always says that, but when you do the math he was turned at age 23 and has been a vampire for 146 years ..that equals 169 years old total.  Stefan was turned at age 17, and has been a vampire for 146 years, which equals 163 years total.

    Ian’s interviews are always good, mixed with teasers, and very much in sync with the character of Damon.

    Where does he say he was turned at 23? I wondered how old he was for such a long time how did I miss that?!!! I thought Stefan turned 162 in S1, meaning he’s just turning 163…soon, in TVD time.

     Ian never said Damon was turned at age 23, but that was established at the beginning of the series.  Stefan was 17 years old when he was turned. Damon is 6 years older than Stefan. That is why Damon is never wearing a book bag on his shoulders or trying to attend high school. He goes to the high school functions as security for Elena and/or as a chaperone.  Damon was going to college and hanging out around colleges when he met Isobel. Damon tried to get Katherine out of the tomb for 145 years.  A little over a year in Mystic Falls time has passed since Stefan saved Elena from the car crash, which means 146 years have passed since Damon and Stefan were turned.  Damon is now a total of 169 years old and Stefan is a total of 163 years old. 

    I have heard Ian say anywhere from 165 years to 170 years in some of his interviews.  I don’t think he is trying to be 100% accurate.  He is just throwing a number out there that is close.
