‘The Vampire Diaries’: Ian Somerhalder confirms TCA appearance

Ian will be there.

Even though the 2012 Teen Choice Awards are still a couple of months away from airing on Fox, a certain star of “The Vampire Diaries” (one of the most-nominated shows on the program) is already making a promise to be there for yet another year.

In a post on Twitter Thursday afternoon, Ian Somerhalder became one of the first people to confirm making an appearance at the show, where he could end up bringing home one of the famous surfboards:

“Making Teen Choice plans- see you there you amazing teens”

Some of the other nominees for the show (at least from the standpoint of supernatural creatures in Mystic Falls) include the likes of Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Joseph Morgan, and many more. To just give you a perspective of how much Ian is valuing his fans by showing up for the show, he will actually be taking off time from shooting season 4 (as will many of his co-stars) in order to attend. Production on the series is likely to start back up again in late July, with a premiere date currently scheduled for early October. We’ll have more details soon, so be sure and check back for more when it comes to that.

As for whether or not Ian can end up winning his Choice TV Actor genre category this year, we’re banking on it — few TV stars have the same sort of devoted fanbase, and voters have proven time and time again that they love the vigilantes and the anti-heroes (and Ian’s Damon Salvatore certainly seems to fit the bill).
