Ian Somerhalder Stars in 2nd Episode of Campfire Convos

From playing Damon on Vampire Diaries to the adventures of owning an Airstream and living off the land, Ian Somerhalder takes us through his exciting life as an actor, philanthropist, and entrepreneur.

Ian Somerhalder is a multi-hyphenate talent, always on the quest for something fulfilling and exciting. If you’re a television enthusiast, you’ve most likely seen his face gracing the screen on smash hit series like LOST and the aforementioned Vampire Diaries. Along the way he’s won several Teen Choice Awards and a People’s Choice Award. With all of these accolades, what else could someone want?

Beyond his excellent acting and appearances in the things we love, there is a deep passion for helping others. Through various causes like the It Gets Better Project, helping LGBTQ+ youth, and protecting the environment with his various causes and education, Somerhalder aims to make a difference whenever and wherever he can.

It can’t get any better, right? Well it does. Somerhalder and his Vampire Diaries co-star, Paul Wesley, got into the bourbon business. Brother’s Bond Bourbon is a straight bourbon whiskey, encapsulating the bond the actors shared on and offscreen during their time on The Vampire Diaries.

“For years, we dreamed of making our own bourbon and how we wanted it to taste. We imagined it would be easy to drink and smooth on the tongue. Like a big warm hug of robust flavors, it would have subtle nutty spice notes that eases you into a complex, warming finish; the perfect bourbon experience.”

And with his love of land and the outdoors, Somerhalder walks us through his passion: adventuring in his Airstream. The perfect guest for Sun Outdoors, we dive into the feeling of seeing the world in its natural beauty. This leads into a conversation about Regenerative Agriculture and a documentary addressing climate change and real steps to make a difference.
