r someone who’s been a fixture on some of the biggest shows on TV for the better part of the last two decades, Ian Somerhalder has a relatively simple sense of style. “Because life is so insane and I’m just a dude,” he says, he mostly sticks to jeans and a T-shirt. “It’s just too complicated. The simpler the better.”
But not just any T-shirts—he tends to buy them in bulk; his latest, a box of 75 Alternative Earth shirts that he wears “over and over,” until recycling them.
The star of LOST and The Vampire Diaries knows what TV success tastes like—the former show a genre-bending phenom, and the latter a massive favorite among its millions of devoted fans, especially online (Somerhalder has accumulated 16 million Instagram followers, for reference).
LOST was Somerhalder’s first big TV hit. He played Boone Carlyle, one of the show’s original cast members, and (spoiler alert!) the first of that main cast to die, proving that she the stakes were sky-high, and anyone could go at any point.
The first season of LOST is in the midst of somehow celebrating its 15th anniversary (it debuted in September 2004), and Somerhalder looks back on the show fondly. “It was way ahead of its time,” he says.
He shouts out a few names that might sound familiar, mentioning the “education” he received on set when working with the likes of J.J. Abrams (Star Wars), Damon Lindelof (Watchmen) and Carlton Cuse (Bates Motel, Netflix’s upcoming Locke and Key) Read More
