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.

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.

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.

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?

These are the kinds of things that happen when you look like Ian Somerhalder.

Moments after giving an Earth Day-inspired speech at USC last week, The Vampire Diaries star was greeted by a student at the university... who felt the need to break into song upon shaking Somerhalder's hand.

Why? Why not, right?!?

In the following video, we see (and hear) the unnamed young woman serenade Somerhalder with a verse from "Natural Woman," leaving Ian with no choice but to join in, give the student a peck on the hand and ask:

Is that all you wanted to say? Yes, it really was.

Would this be our first move if we ever met Ian Somerhalder?
