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.

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 is officially all over for Paul Wesley and Torrey DeVitto.

The former couple, who announced their divorce in July, signed the final documents this week, with a prenuptial agreement making the process pretty easy, sources confirm to TMZ.

And pretty profitable for Wesley as well.

The agreement states that both stars keep their earnings separate during their marriage and, as you might expect, Wesley made a great deal more than DeVitto, who is best known for roles on The Vampire Diaries, Pretty Little Liars and Army Wives.

Nina Dobrev isn't the only Vampire Diaries star moving on.

With rumors circulating that this actress is now dating Derek Hough, sources tell Us Weekly that Paul Wesley has struck up a romance with former costar Phoebe Tonkin.

The gorgeous pair were spotted at the Soho House on Saturday, allegedly on a double date with Ben McKenzie and Shelley Hennig, according to an eye witness.

"Paul and Phoebe were 100% romantic - they were across the table from Ben all cozied up on the couch kissing each other," the onlooker tells the tabloid. "She had her head on his chest."

After about two years of marriage, Wesley filed for divorce from Torrey DeVitto in July.

He knows Tonkin from their (recent) days on The Vampire Diaries, though this Australian beauty left the show in May and now stars on its spinoff, The Originals.

Both The Originals and The Vampire Diaries Season 5 kick off Thursday, October 3.

Forgive us for ripping off a previous CW marketing campaign, but: OMFG.

There really is no alternate reaction to the trio of covers Entertainment Weekly just released in honor of The Vampire Diaries, specifically stars Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley. All three are featured across the main cover and two collector's items, and nary a shirt is to be seen...

  • Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder Naked!
  • Paul Wesley and Nina Dobrev EW Cover
  • VD on EW

Copies of the issue go on sale Friday, while inside producers Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson dish on the challenge of writing for a show with dueling, passionate fan bases.

"When we want Stefan and Elena to have a moment together, how can we do that and not have our Delena fans outraged?” Plec asks.

We've got an idea, Julie: just take Damon's shirt off. That will satisfy all viewers.

The Twilight Saga doesn't actually conclude until November 2012, but Ian Somerhalder doesn't care. He's already making a pitch to fans of that franchise.

“The whole Twilight thing is about to be over," The Vampire Diaries stars says in the latest issue of Rolling Stone, when asked about his show's competition. "And teenage girls can’t watch True Blood with their parents - that would just get weird. So we’re getting ready to kick some major ass this season.”

  • Ian Somerhalder, Paul Wesley and Nina Dobrev

The season will include a blood-thirsty Stefan, as previewed in this trailer, along with a closer relationship between Elena and Damon, Caroline and Tyler.

How does the cast get along overall? It's "a total frickin' lovefest," Somerhalder said, and he should know: the actor is dating Dobrev.

It was written off as a Twilight Saga clone at first, but The Vampire Diaries has made a solid impression on viewers.

This is a truly intriguing drama on The CW, anchored by a gorgeous cast. It's led by Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev and Paul Wesley.

The threesome posed for a series of photos with Nylon magazine this week, with each answering a question about the surprising hit:

Dobrev, on similarities with other vampire franchises: "When the show first started... you automatically thought Twilight.  But once you continue, there's a whole other side of it that goes a lot deeper... It's about letting everyone know that we're different but we all respect each other."

Wesley, on gratitude for Twilight: "Do I thing the show would be successful as it is, if it weren’t for all that? No.”

Somerhalder, on initial reaction to Damon Salvatore: “[My character] is gonna be the coolest character on television. There was no doubt about it. It reminded me of Sawyer, Josh Holloway’s character on Lost. He was always the character I secretly wished I could play.”
