Popularly known as the hottest vampire ever (at least in the TV-verse), Ian Somerhalder started his modelling career at the young age of 12. He was a part of popular TV series like Rules of Attraction and Lost before signing up for The Vampire Diaries as Damon Salvatore, which put him on the global radar and had girls swooning over him all over the world. If you are looking for more reasons to like him, you should know he owns a gourmet pizza parlor. Though his popularity mostly comes from his portrayal of Damon Salvatore in The Vampire Diaries, we have a list of some other fantasy creatures we would love to see him play.
