Latest ‘The Vampire Diaries’ Poster Hints a Grim Destiny for Ian Somerhalder [PHOTOS]
The release of "The Vampire Diaries" poster has caused panic and anxiety to the avid fans of the television series. Actor Ian Somerhalder, who portrays the major character Damon Salvatore, is featured on the poster holding a rope tied around his neck.
TV Line reportedly released the teaser poster of "The Vampire Diaries" Season 4. Some fans think the poster suggests something bad will happen to Ian Somerhalder's character but they are hoping that the actor will not depart from the TV series.
The poster caption that reads "Give him enough rope..." had the fans concerned about the fate of Ian Somerhalder on "The Vampire Diaries." Even actress Nina Dobrev's revelation that a tragedy will happen on Mystic Falls had the fans already gripping on their chairs for the suspense bound to happen on the show.
If Ian Somerhalder gets killed off in the TV series, "The Vampire Diaries" fans will be really devastated but the "Fifty Shades of Grey" fans will be pleased. Ian Somerhalder has always been a top choice in portraying billionaire Christian Grey. Ian's assumed departure from the TV series will give him less working schedule, enough to accept the role for the upcoming "Fifty Shades of Grey" film.
The film's cast has not yet been confirmed but fans constantly vote for Ian Somerhalder to be cast as Christian Grey. The 34-year-old actor has also expressed his interest for the role in the past but claimed there is no official announcement yet.
Meanwhile, Ian Somerhalder still faces tough competition against the other potential actors who could bring life to the dark BDSM enthusiast and handsome billionaire Christian Grey on the big screen like "White Collar" star Matt Bomer and "Arrow" actor Stephen Amell.
