Before they became a roving band of witches, werewolves, vampires, vampire hunters, and a lone human, The Vampire Diaries cast racked up some pretty impressive (and awkward) resume entries.

You can watch The Vampire Diaries online to get all caught up before the Season 6 premiere, but before you do that, click on the gallery above to see the cast before they were stars.

When you do, you'll find out some of the same interesting things we did.

Ian Somerhalder had some really unfortunate haircuts before he landed his breakthrough role of Boone Carlyle on LOST. Really, truly unfortunate haircuts.

His blue eyes, however, have always been piercing. Right into our souls. His vampire brother Paul Wesley, meanwhile, has a very Six Degrees of Separation background.

This just in:

The cast of The Vampire Diaries is very, very attractive.

We're reminded of this fact because, in anticipation of The Vampire Diaries Season 6, The CW has released new pictures of this drama's key players, from Ian Somerhalder to Nina Dobrev to Paul Wesley and many others.

Matt Davis is back as Alaric. Michael Malarkey is now a full-time regular as Enzo. And Kat Graham is wearing a dress that would make Kim Kardashian jealous.

Which star looks the sexiest? How do these cast members stack up against other supernaturals, such as those from The Originals and/or those from True Blood? And just how excited are you for The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 1?!?

It airs on October 2. But you can click through these sizzling pictures right now!

The Vampire Diaries' smoldering stars, Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev, broke up months ago, just like their characters on the long-running CW drama.

The two, who dated for several years, have slowly drifted apart, and sources say it's no shock that their lives are mirrored in the supernatural drama this year.

Allegedly, it was by Nina’s request that "Delena" (for Damon and Elena) was no longer the focal point of the series, and not just because she hates bad TV.

Dobrev reportedly hates that Nikki Reed is dating with and loving Ian Somerhalder and she can’t stand to even be near him, even when he's playing Damon.

It's easy to dismiss these reports as mere celebrity gossip fodder, but lest we forget, Ian and Nina met and fell in love while playing out the fictional romance.

Elena and Damon became fan favorites, and fans went gaga when the on-screen couple fell into an off-screen relationship. It was all too good to be true.

Things ended this year, with fans trashing Reed and Somerhalder defending his magical, beautiful girlfriend online in ways he never publicly spoke of Nina.

The fangs are out for Ian Somerhalder.

The actor, currently filming The Vampire Diaries Season 6, posted a lengthy response on his Instagram page over the weekend after reading negative comments from his supposed fans over new girlfriend Nikki Reed.

We was not happy. At all.

"You HATE NIKKI REED? Really? Do you know her? Hmmm, I'm not sure you do. Look on her Instagram feed or twitter and all you will see is a compassionate and beautiful human being," Somerhalder wrote.

"Please put your negative energy elsewhere. You don't even know the person you're talking about."

Somerhalder, of course, dated co-star Nina Dobrev for many years before getting together with Reed (a long-time friend) this summer.

The two were even spotted at a sex shop last week!

Unlike many hornball teens, 20- and 30-somethings, Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed have no need to ogle those leaked pictures of Jennifer Lawrence nude.

Because they apparently are heavily invested in each other's bodies.

The two hit up a Toronto sex shop and walked away with nearly $1,000 worth of stuff. This isn't just some tabloid rumor, either ... the duo was really there.

Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed Equals Hot

Witnesses spied them at the Seduction Love Boutique on Sunday.

An off-duty employee said he recognized The Vampire Diaries star, but couldn't quite place from where, and even commented, "You look like Zac Efron."

Ian, laughing it off, told the employee, "Nope, wrong guy."

Luckily for the Zac Efron fan, TMZ was able to ID the correct actor in his cell phone photo, giving us insight into the sex life into Ian and his new flame.

All told, Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed made off with a kinky mix of vibrators, handcuffs and restraints, dropping a cool $860 at the erotic boutique.

What happened after they left? Only they know.

Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed are certainly not wasting any time. The sexy vampire couple is already living together, according to multiple reports.

Not only that, they reportedly took this step just three weeks after they started dating, with the Twilight actress moving in with Ian in Atlanta, Ga.

That's where he lives when he's filming his hit CW series, The Vampire Diaries Season 6. With his ex-girlfriend Nina Dobrev. Not awkward at all.

No, really, sources say it actually isn't awkward.

"[Nikki] goes to set every day," the source says, adding that the lovebirds plan to also share a Los Angeles place when he's not filming TVD, too.

While living under the same roof is a big step and took place very quickly, Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed have been serious from the very beginning.

Damon Salvatore is alive and well, folks.

Or maybe just alive.

Ian Somerhalder Tweeted a photo this week of our first look at his character on The Vampire Diaries Season 6, leaving many to wonder just why Damon has a chin full of blood.

The veteran vampire concluded Season 5 by holding Bonnie's hand and getting sucked into... well, we have no idea where. The Other Other side, we guess?

New celebrity couple Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed showed off plenty of PDA upon their arrival at last night's Teen Choice Awards in Los Angeles.

While they didn’t walk the red carpet together, The Vampire Diaries star, 35, kissed the Twilight beauty, 26, in full view of the photographers backstage.

Things have been heating up, and publicly, between Reed and Somerhalder in the past month; the two even adopted a horse named Eagle together.

“Proud new dad,” Ian wrote, with a photo of him. “His name is Eagle. Thank you @iamnikkireed for snapping this special moment, with our big baby boy.”

Oh, baby, this is getting serious. And a little awkward.

“Proud new dad… What amazing creatures they are. Wow. His name is Eagle. Thank you @iamnikkireed for snapping this special moment, with our big baby boy.”

Their big baby boy?

It's not clear in what capacity they have taken the creature under their collective wing, but the two stars are clearly an item and not shying away from that fact.

Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed first sparked rumors when they went public, or at least didn't try to hide their romance, at a L.A. Farmer’s Market in July.

“They both love staying home and just hanging with friends.”
