Ian Somerhalder found fame with hit CW show The Vampire Diaries after making a splash in Lost, and he has now revealed his worry that new spin-off show The Originals could take actors away from the show.

“I’m excited for Julie [Plec], and for Joseph and all my people, but I’m a selfish actor – I’m not a producer on the show, I’m not a writer. My only concern is Damon, and my show,” he told Digital Spy.

“Now, they’re going to be taking these characters that mean so much to our show. I’m insanely happy for everyone, but I’m not thrilled. Not that I mind sharing, I just don’t want to lose all these amazing actors on our show,” he continued.

The Originals debuts this October and focuses on the Mikaelson siblings Klaus, Elijah and Rebekah, and Somerhalder thinks this may mean introducing too many new characters on Diaries.

“Who are the other people who are gonna be coming on the show? Are they gonna be good? Because it’s The CW, and everyone has to be pretty, and there aren’t a lot of pretty people that can act well,” he said.

Somerhalder continues: “I’m not joking! I’m one of them, that can act well. Not to sound s**tty about it, but casting is always tough. I feel like they worked so hard on casting this show… and hopefully they just continue to put great actors in.”

As well as fame and legions of fans Somerhalder also met ex Nina Dobrev on the show. They split earlier in the year and he says he now spends his spare time watching Game of Thrones!.
