Ian Somerhalder talks Stefan & Elena’s connection

From TV Guide: The Vampire Diaries’ Ian Somerhalder: Silas Is Like Season 1 Damon

“The beautiful thing about Elena is that she is so dialed into Stefan,” Somerhalder says. “She’s a compassionate human being, she loves so intensely and she has this pit in her stomach. She and Stefan particularly have this bond, and we later figure out in the mythology of the story why that is. But her having this feeling is genuine. Is there a worry in the back of Damon’s mind that she could go back to him? Yeah, absolutely. He can’t deny it and he won’t deny it, but all he wants is for her to be happy. Stefan would do the same thing.”
