Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder and the rest of the cast of The Vampire Diaries joined the panel at San Diego’s Comic Con on Saturday (July 20). Everyone had flown in from Atlanta where they were shooting scenes for the CW series late at night.
Ian posted a photo of himself on the plane heading to the convention. He wrote: “Bring it Comic Con- I’m ready for you! I think…”
All eyes were on Nina and Ian since their breakup in May. E! News reports there was some tension between the two. During the Q&A – Ian offered a fan in the audience Dobrev’s number. A source tells E! Nina jokingly asked, “Is there anyone Elena hasn’t made out with?” when an audience member shouted “Me!” Ian replied, “Give me your number. I’ll set you up.”
The source also says the two attempted to avoid each other in the press room saying, “Ian showed up and Nina showed up shortly after. She saw Ian was right in front of her and went away, then came back a little later so they were spaced out a bit more during press-line interviews.”
However fan pics of the two at the autograph session show otherwise. They looked relaxed with each other.
During the panel discussion Entertainment Weekly reports the stars talked about the new season’s storyline. Elena has picked Damon!
Somerhalder said of the choice, “I thought they were joking. Damon never gets the girl. It’s always Stefan.”
Wesley quickly chimed in, “Don’t underplay your sexy blue eyes. Don’t downplay the Smolder-halder.” Then, Wesley added with a laugh, ”Enjoy it buddy. I did it for three years.”
