Ouchie, Ian Somerhalder!
The Vampire Diaries' hunk recently admitted that he's "not thrilled' about TVD spin-off series, The Originals!
Where's the CW support, eh?!
The spin-off will debut this October, and centers around the Mikaelson siblings!
Ian admitted that this new show might be taking some really strong actors away from The Vampire Diaries, and he's not happy about it:
"I'm excited for Julie [Plec], and for Joseph and all my people, but I'm a selfish actor - I'm not a producer on the show, I'm not a writer. My only concern is Damon, and my show. Now, they're going to be taking these characters that mean so much to our show. I'm insanely happy for everyone, but I'm not thrilled. Not that I mind sharing, I just don't want to lose all these amazing actors on our show."
He's also worried the show is going to introduce too many new faces, too fast, in the absence of Morgan, Gillies and Holt:
"Who are the other people who are gonna be coming on the show? Are they gonna be good? Because it's The CW, and everyone has to be pretty, and there aren't a lot of pretty people that can act well…I'm not joking! I'm one of them, that can act well. Not to sound s**tty about it, but casting is always tough. I feel like they worked so hard on casting this show… and hopefully they just continue to put great actors in."
We DO already know one of the new characters who will be introduced in season 5!
Aaron AKA Shaun Sipos is a total hottie, and can totally act!
No worries here, Ian!
The Originals will premiere on the CW October 3rd, and if you're a diehard TVD
fang fan, we're sure you'll be able to sink your teeth into it!
