September 22, 2011 – While Damon may be angry these days on The Vampire Diaries, Ian Somerhalder claims that he can still make Elena smile despite all the bad.
Ian spoke a bit about his tortured Vampire Diaries character Damon on an interview with TV Guide recently, and admitted that the bad-boy vampire is very mad with his situation.

Left alone with the task of protecting Stefan’s (Paul Wesley) girlfriend, Elena (Nina Dobrev), while he’s out on a killing rampage with Klaus (Joseph Morgan), is not how he envisioned things to go.
As all viewers know, Damon also loves Elena, and having to protect her comes naturally to him and is his duty, but, so is staying away from her romantically.

But, all the while, he reveals that Damon could be better for Elena in many respects.
“He gives her something that Stefan doesn’t,” Ian explained, “He makes her smile. If you ever notice, while all this s***t is going down, he has this ability to make her smile. And it’s awesome to see her smile.”
However, Damon will not jump at the chance to get together with Elena, in respect for his brother. He is still honorable underneath all that sarcasm and rebelliousness.

So, while Ian keeps refusing to say that Damon and Elena will get together at some point in the season, his newfound friendship with her could very well lead them on that road. At least we do have confirmation that Elena is actually going to realize that she does have feelings for Damon after all.
