Vampire Diaries' Nina Dobrev on Elena and Damon's Goodbye, Caroline's Feelings for Stefan

If The Vampire Diaries' Elena wasn't sure of her feelings for Damon before, she certainly is now.

On the Season 5 finale, viewers sobbed along with Elena (Nina Dobrev) as she realized the love of her life Damon (Ian Somerhalder) wasn't coming back from the Other Side.

Although Damon won't be by Elena's side when the series returns in the fall, it's clear that she and Stefan (Paul Wesley) will finally be in a place where they can lean on each other as friends in his absence.

Ian Somerhalder Challenges Climate Change's Biggest Cynic in Years of Living Dangerously

The Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder knows a thing or two about empowering people to make a change in the world. Through the Ian Somerhalder Foundation, which he started in 2010, the actor aims to educate and collaborate with individuals and projects to positively impact the planet and its creatures.  

But it was working on Showtime's docu-series Years of Living Dangerously that he realized the amount of high-profile — and very educated — people actually in opposition to the very message he stands by. On Sunday's episode (10/9c), Somerhalder works with activist Anna Jane Joyner to debate with and hopefully convince her father, evangelical megachurch preacher Rick Joyner, that climate change and global warming is real and is happening.
