Ian wants more than just acting roles on TV
New Delhi: 'The Vampire Diaries' star Ian Somerhalder wants to make use of his skill set and go beyond acting. He doesn't think he will ever take up a TV show again if he doesn't get a creative role in the storytelling.
The new show 'V Wars' has him as an actor, a director and an executive producer.
"It's a perfect opportunity for me to use the skill set that I learnt on being a lead actor, eventually a producer and director on 'The Vampire Diaries'. I honestly don't think I'll ever be on a TV show again if I didn't have a creative role in the storytelling and I have learnt too much and I love the job too much to ever be just an actor again," Somerhalder said.
Of course, there are exceptions. "If it's Tarantino or Scorsese or Spielberg, then I would be excited just to be an actor on their show," he said.
