The Vampire Diaries is the most difficult show I have ever worked on. It’s so physically demanding with a tremendous amount of running, hustling, schlepping, setting up and breaking down, and moving heavy crates containing the actors’ bags, backup supplies and so on.

His kindness does not stop with humans. Continue reading

With multiple Teen Choice Awards, a Screen Actors’ Guild Award, and countless other accolades, you would think he would not need to take time to schmooze with the little people. I know personally that such is not the case. He stands up for us little guys, is very generous, always helping others, and generous with gifts. Most importantly, he finds joy in Continue reading
Thus far, I have been blessed to work with Ian Somerhalder for the past two years. Hopefully there will be many more to come. He’s a gorgeous human being and has the biggest human heart to match.
