Facts ahoy! Ian Somerhalder was born in Lousiana, and has a brother and a sister. He grew up playing sports which consisted of: soccer and baseball. In his teenage years, he pursued modeling, and then moved into acting during his young adult years. He's known for his acting talent, and for being the "leading man".

His acting career began in the 1990s, where he made television appearances. Young Americans, Smallville, and Lost. His time with Lost was short, but his character is one we all remember, due to the epic death.

After he left Lost, Ian Somerhalder continued his work with film and tv. He landed a role that would shoot him into stardom in 2009, when The CWs signed him on as Damon in The Vampire Diaries. It ran for eight seasons and had 171 episodes. Somerhalder starred as Damon Salvatore throughout the entire series.

Damon was a vampire with a pretty healthy appetite, if you consider human blood to be healthy, he also enjoyed mischief and he had a major weakness, as did his brother Stefan Salvatore, for a teenage girl named Elena Gilbert.

The Vampire Diaries show description is, according to Wikipedia: "The Vampire Diaries is an American supernatural teen drama television series developed by Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec, based on the popular book series of the same name written by L. J. Smith." However the IMDb page says this: " The lives, loves, dangers and disasters in the town, Mystic Falls, Virginia. Creatures of unspeakable horror lurk beneath this town as a teenage girl is suddenly torn between two vampire brothers."

Now that he is starring in V Wars, in an entirely new genre, Somerhalder said to The Warp: "They're not sexy vampires, it leans into more of horror."

Instead of playing a member of the undead, however, Ian Somerhalder plays Dr. Luther Swann. V Wars has created a vampire virus, in this world, and Somerhalder's character is the one trying to find a cure.

So he's not a hot vampire, but he's a hot doctor.

His shows are available on Netflix and Hulu, depending on the show you want. If you want Lost it's Hulu, V Wars and The Vampire Diaries are available on Netflix.
