We’re just over two weeks away from the start of The Vampire Diaries’ third season (The CW, Sept. 15), and to get you in the mood, how about an exclusive first look at the stars’ sexy solo gallery photo shoots? If you stare at the picture of Ian Somerhalder long enough, you’ll think you see his eyebrows move. That’s when you know you’re ready to return to Mystic Falls.

Nina Dobrev looks stunning as usual in another dreamy gown Elena will never actually get to wear.

And Paul Wesley is serious as ever. The good news: We’ll see a different side of the actor this season as Stefan hits the ripper road with Klaus (Joseph Morgan). “In the first couple of episodes, there’s still a lot of one-foot-in, one-foot-out of this situation he’s in,” Wesley tells EW. “Something’s gonna happen that drastically changes that, and then at that point, he commits and doesn’t look back. Then he can really enjoy it. The truth is, I can be a dark guy like any other, but I love humor, and I love goofing off, and I love being silly, and playing a character that’s constantly burdened for years, it can be a little depressing after a while. To play a character who has absolutely no conscience, that literally felt like taking a load off my shoulders.”

How will we get our Stefan back? That’s a good question. “There’s gonna be a lot of killing. As far as Stefan is concerned, he can never go back to his old life. Imagine Stefan sitting in high school. Apart from the fact that I just look weird sitting in high school,” he laughs, “he’s murdered all these people. What do you think, we’re just gonna go hang out now? As far as he’s concerned, he’s moved on. He’s past it all.”

    Where’s the rest of the cast? Oh right…the CW is too cheap to take new pictures of everyone else. *rolleyes* I don’t even watch this show for the main triangle. So, I guess I’m basically out of luck eh?

    • Kate

      Exactly! My favorite characters that I watch TVD for are Caroline, Alaric & Jeremy. I can’t stand Stefan…hopefully the character will actually become somewhat enjoyable to watch this upcoming season.

      Then again the CW usually slacks on promotion…I mean when was the last new photos of the Supernatural cast? I keep photoshopping old pictures and it’s getting ridiculous.

      • Pan

        Forwood and Damon are my favs the rest are good too. S excited for this season.

    • Dan

      Yes . . . they’re too cheap. That’s why.

    • Me

      I love Elena, Damon and Katherine. My 3 favorite characters. Jeremy is stupid, I just want him to actually get killed-off, he’s just died so many times, it’s time for a real death so we can end the whining wanna-be cousin. Caroline I can now accept, I hated her in season 1, but she’s awesome now. I don’t understand why Matt is in there, he’s useless that main cast spot could be used by Meredith and yet Matt is still there. I don’t have a problem with the rest but kill Jeremy and make Matt a recurring.

      • Andrea

      • Rica

        Clam down! Ha! Good typo! I”m going to start saying that now! (none of that is said with sarcasm, I really did laugh in a good way)

    • Sharon A

      Eeeks- this particular photo shoot was strictly for main cast members (Paul, Ian, Nina & Joseph Morgan- who was promoted to main cast this year)…….hopefully we’ll get more pics soon as Joseph has been the only main cast member missing…..

      Ian looked freaking hot!!!!!! Paul looked very handsome & Nina looks gorgeous:)

    • Kristy

      Ugh, so sick of these three. I watch the show for Caroline, Tyler, Jeremy, and Alaric. Where are their snazzy photos, huh?

      • DebY

        The supporting cast was not involved in the season three promo photo shoot.

        The MAIN cast is Ian, Nina, Paul and now Joseph Morgan, who was promoted to a main cast series regular for season three.

    Wow, Ian looks smoking hot. He is always gorgeous, it’s scary. Paul looks handsome as usual. Nina is beautiful. I love this cast.

  • JuztThaEnigma

    No comments!!

  • amanda

    Ian can never look less than gorgeous but I prefer him with shorter hair. Nina is absolutely stunning. I can’t wait for season 3 to start. I need my weekly Damon fix lol

  • Peng9803

    Ian looks like he’s wearing a Halloween costume. It’s his version of Mal (Firefly)! And Nina looks like she’s trying to be Eliza Dushku. Did Paul borrow that suit from NPH? More photos of the other cast members please!

    • Peng9803

      Oh, and why did they put Paul in an all grey room with a grey suit? Do they really think that less of him?

      • @ Peng


  • Leina

    Love the pictures!
    I just don’t get why VD cant get a picture with the whole cast like The Secret Circle. They’re a new show yet their pics are way better!
