Ian Somerhalder in GQ



As bittersweet as the impending Lost finale has to be for all concerned, it's bittersweeter for Ian Somerhalder. As Flight 815 survivor Boone Carlyle, he brooded, nursed a weird crush on his stepsister, then became the first of the gang to die. Somerhalder says J. J. Abrams picked the right moment to tell him he'd been killed off: "I was in wine country, man, with a beautiful girl. I said to J.J., 'Your timing is impeccable. If I'd been at a Denny's I would have started crying.' I downed a couple bottles of Pinot and I was set." Things have worked out okay for Somerhalder—he may play Boone in at least one more "flash-sideways" this month before Lost wraps up, and he's now drinking fine reds on the regular as a 150-year-old undead hunk on the CW's Vampire Diaries. There are worse fates, he says, than being accosted in airports by obsessed fans of two different TV shows: "The decibel level at which a 13-year-old can explain how much she loves you—it's the coolest thing ever."



this one is begging to be macro'ed
