The Vampire Diaries' Paul Wesley, Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder have scored the February cover of US mag Nylon. In the issue, the three small-screen stars talk not only about how their series follows in the vampire footsteps of Twilight and True Blood, but also what sets it apart. Here's more:
- Paul on the success of the show: "Do I think the show would be successful as it is, if it weren’t for Twilight? No."
- Nina on the similarities with Twilight and True Blood: "When the show first started. . . you automatically thought Twilight. But once you continue, there's a whole other side of it that goes a lot deeper. . . It's about letting everyone know that we're different but we all respect each other."
- Ian on the similarities between his character on Lost and Vampire Diaries : "[My character] is gonna be the coolest character on television. There was no doubt about it. It reminded me of Sawyer, Josh Holloway’s character on Lost. He was always the character I secretly wished I could play."
- Ian on his hiatus between Lost and Vampire Diaries : "I fell off the face of the f*cking planet. I thought I was being cool and edgy, and it seemed like something Johnny Depp would have done 15 years ago. Wrong. Biggest Mistake."
