Ian Somerhalder (Boone) returning to 'Lost'

Welcome back, Boone! Ian Somerhalder has been cast as a bad vampire in the CW’s upcoming drama The Vampire Diaries, but apparently, he’s not ready to say goodbye to his role as Boone on Lost just yet. He told the crowd at Comic-Con today that the Vampire producers are ready for him to be called back to Hawaii this season. When asked what it’s like to be at Comic-Con and if he’s still peppered with questions from Lost fans, Somerhalder stammered a bit but replied with some good news: “I think it’s safe to say…  we sort of discussed that… it’s truly incredible that… I am going to be coming back.” As expected, the audience roared. He reassured the crowd, however, that job one is to play Damon, the evil vampire brother of Stefan (played by Paul Wesley).

Afterward, Somehalder told EW exclusively that Lost producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse only told him half an hour before the Vampire Diaries panel that he will be coming back next season. “It’s not clear yet” when it’ll happen but “it’ll be very soon.” Somerhalder said he wasn’t necessarily surprised at the development, because he had been talking to the producers for some time about returning. “It’s just a matter of timing and getting me down there,” says Somerhalder. “It’s all good.”

    YESSS!!! I love Boone!

    • kate

      Me too!!!!!!

  • Vivi

    They might as well have a big ol’ reunion. Seriously. If time was reversed, all those suckers who died will be alive again.
    My only resolution is to have Walt’s story be more defined. How can he be special and not know what that special “talent” is? No fair.

  • Alan of Montreal

    wow…I wonder if this means that others like Maggie Grace will also be returning. What about Walt? How will they deal with his aging?

  • Lizzy


    SO exciting

    • I LOVE U IAN and BOONE


  • Chloe

    Oh my God!!!This is a wonderful news!I was so sad when he died on Lost.But now with all that stuff of turning back in time I hoped it would be a chance to see Boone again…and Charlie also!


    That is the best news! I can’t wait! Boone was my favorite character, before they killed him off! I’m so excited!!!!! :)

  • Briana

    Yes! Best news ever!

  • graeme

    I’m thinking more and more Jack’s plan worked and the season will at least partly focus on what would have happened if the plane never crashed.

  • Brooke

    Boone was my favorite character and I have to admit, while I still enjoy the show (more than most people on the Internet!), my affection for the show was never the same after the 1st season. Awesome!!!

  • Stef

    That is great news. He was not only a favorite character of mine but also SO HOT

  • Isabella

    Yeah, Boone! I always liked him. He was a great character, and he had very pretty eyes. Can’t wait to see him again! I was so sad when he died.

  • Brenda

    OMG!!! Thank god Boone is coming back. He is by far the hottest guy on the show!!! He should never have been killed off, all because Shannon wanted to leave the show. They should have killed her and left him on. Now if only Mr. Eko can come back, my life will be complete!!!

  • bruno

    i’m betting there are some serious pissed off producers right about now…big mouth.

  • Heather

    Of course he’ll come back! Locke already saw him Season 3. Boone is a beloved character and nothing would make (mostly female) fans happier than to see him again.

  • Rob

    Boone was a good character, will be nice to see him around again, in any form ;)
