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. 

"If you look back to Season 1, it's been very hectic for her and it's nice [for her and Stefan] to be in a settled place," she says. "But it's the CW; we're not going to stay there for very long. She's not going to be happy for more than 15 minutes in the first episode of Season 6."

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

Rick Joyner, Ian Somerhalder

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.

Mary Anne Hitt, Ian Somerhalder

Showtime's hit shows usually depict life-and-death situations in a heightened version of the world around us. But the cable channel's new docu-series Years of Living Dangerously aims to shine a light on a real-world issue that could be just as dangerous: global warming.  

A project three years in the making, the nine-episode series sends celebrity correspondents such as Arnold Schwarzenegger and Harrison Ford to areas around the world and throughout the U.S. affected by global warming. The stars interview experts and ordinary people alike about the impacts of climate change and also ask questions on behalf of the audience. According to executive producer Jerry Weintraub, co-creators Joel Bach and David Gelber wanted to use Hollywood A-listers not just for star power, but as a way for the average viewer to understand the enormity of the issue. read more
