Damon (Ian Somerhalder) may have promised to wait for Elena (Nina Dobrev) on the season six finale of The Vampire Diaries, but by the time season seven rolls around this fall, he could be wooing another leading lady.
When we caught up with Kat Graham at the CW Upfronts earlier this month, we asked her whether Bonnie and Damon’s newfound friendship will grow into something more when the series returns — especially now that Elena is out of the picture.
Graham, who just so happens to be good pals with Ian Somerhalder’s wife, Nikki Reed, said that as an actor she would “obviously” be interested in seeing the duo’s often-complicated relationship evolve — and she knows exactly how she’d like it to happen.
"I just want it to be an interesting and dynamic and very connected relationship," said Graham. "I want there to be layers, I want there to be sparring, and I do want there to be love, but in what form is the question."
On-screen romance aside, what Graham really wants is more scenes with Somerhalder.
"We're two peas in a pod," said Graham. "People really like to see us together."
