From LA Times: Ian Somerhalder teases ‘Vampire Diaries’ future — love troubles?:
The new season premieres Thursday night, and Ian Somerhalder, who plays bad boy Damon, hints that things won’t stay rosy for the couple for long.
“Well, let’s get something out in the open right now,” he told Show Tracker. “You’re talking about a guy who is 174 years old dating an 18-year-old. Talk about robbing the cradle! I would be so bold as to say that things change. And in Mystic Falls they change rapidly. Love comes in many forms. You have to fight for it and you have to work for it. Her being away at college and all that stuff that happens in Mystic Falls, it’s going to be challenging. It’s what creates the drama of the show. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.” […] “If and when Elena and Damon break up, the world better watch out”.
