An interview with the Louisiana native, whose winding journey has taken him from Cajun cowboy to television star to bourbon boss

“It helps curb the cravings. But…makes for a lot of lushy vamps.” That’s a line from an early episode of The Vampire Diaries—the TV series that became a worldwide phenomenon over eight seasons—describing vampires’ love of spirits. In the show, the two vampire brothers, Damon and Stefan Salvatore, played by Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley, raise this to an art form with their consumption of bourbon. It’s also a story element that inspired Somerhalder and Wesley to start a distillery and release their bourbon, Brother’s Bond, earlier this year.

The venture fits with Somerhalder’s childhood in Louisiana. On Sundays after church, he says, the adults would enjoy mint juleps, creating indelible scenes in his memory. Even though Somerhalder now lives in California with his wife and daughter, the South—and its greatest drink—seems to have a powerful pull on this model turned actor, who also starred on the hit series Lost.

Did you learn about the “rules of vampires” by watching The Lost Boys?
Oh, my, I loved that movie—and it still holds up. I knew a lot about vampires because I grew up near the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain. In the distance you can see New Orleans glimmering. It has a mystique for vampires, and my mom loved Anne Rice; plus my family is Cajun. As a kid I was always saying, “Yeah, let’s go find a vampire.”

Candice en Kayla waren eerder deze maand te gast bij de podcast ‘ Love A Lifetime Movie’ waarin ze een review deden van de film ‘Drink, Slay, Love’.

Daniel heeft een nieuwe fotoshoot en interview gehad met Mr. Warbuton Magazine. Met het tijdschrift praat hij over zijn nieuwste film ‘Coming Home in the Dark’, zijn rol in de Netflix-serie ‘Virgin River’ en hoe hij de afgelopen quarantaine periode in de pandemie heeft doorgebracht.

ith 2 hot new projects, Coming Home in the Dark and Occupation Rainfall, actor Daniel Gillies sits down with MRWARBURTON MAGAZINE to talk going back to New Zealand to film and his personal style.

Shot on location at the Chamberlain hotel in West Hollywood, special thank you to their excellent team!

Since 2010, the spunky (that’s Aussie and Kiwi slang for good-looking) face of Daniel Gillies has been a fixture of network television. After a successful stint on the Australian drama Street Legal and a subsequent string of guest roles on a slew of popular American shows, the Canadian-born and New Zealand bred actor landed the role of Elijah Mikaelson on the long-running hit series The Vampire Diaries and its successful spin off The Originals. In addition, he somehow managed to simultaneously star in the Canadian supernatural medical drama series Saving Hope. And since no actor can amass too many successful TV roles, in 2019 Gillies began a recurring role in the sleeper Netflix sensation Virgin River.

That is all about to change by early summer. Gillies’ image will appear a bit bigger, and his audience reach will broaden exponentially with two major film releases. Written and directed by Luke Sparke, Occupation: Rainfall (already a box-office hit in Australia) is an action-packed sci-fi adventure set to land in American cinemas in time for the summer blockbuster season.

More significantly, however, is the breakout Sundance Film Festival critical favorite Coming Home in the Dark. An intense psychological thriller directed by James Ashcroft from the story by Marshall Owen, the film has won critical acclaim following its festival premier. In the lead character of Mandrake, Gillies landed the role of a lifetime as an eerily icy yet riveting sociopath with a vengeance who demands unwavering attention every moment he is on screen.

“I wanted to try out my theory that beauty actually comes from the inside,” the Vampire Diaries alum tells PEOPLE

Posing without makeup for PEOPLE’s annual Beautiful Issue actually required more prep for Kat Graham than if she’d been wearing a full face.

“I started a juice cleanse. I wanted to try out my theory that beauty actually comes from the inside out when it comes to your health of your hair and of your skin,” the actress and singer, 31, explains to PEOPLE in this week’s Beautiful Issue. “This company, Suja Juice, they’re so good. And I did that for three days, so it’s actually been the longest prep I’ve ever had for any shoot — and it was no makeup and my curls!”

Graham admits that she only recently started to wear her natural curls.

“Hair has been such a great journey for me through this past year in quarantine,” she says. “I really embraced my curls, which is not something that I ever did before. I really relied heavily on straight wigs and things like that. And now I’m finding ways to have looser curls, tighter curls, softer curls, stronger. I feel like I’m almost a curl expert, I’m not quite there yet.”

The co-founder of wellness platform Modern Nirvana started out as a total novice when it came to beauty. Graham says she started wearing makeup around 15, but her mom didn’t want to show her the ropes.

“I remember the first thing that I did was tried to pluck my eyebrows to get them a good shape, but my mom wouldn’t let me pluck my eyebrows, so I shaved them,” Graham recalls. “It was picture day, and it was a disaster.”

Ian en Paul hebben een interview gehad met Forbes om hun Bourbonmerk ‘Brother’s Bond’ te promomten, deze verschint officieel op 1 mei.

According to Bacardi Limited’s annual trends report, 70 percent of North American consumers sought out sustainable or eco-friendly spirits brands at the end of 2020. While the upward trend of sustainable demand offers a positive shift in the market for now, all too often trends are just that—a fleeting moment. For Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley, actors, directors, and activists, however, they intend to surpass sustainability with the debut of their bourbon, Brother’s Bond, by supporting regenerative agriculture.

“Building communities around farming and regenerative agriculture is the way to the future,” Somerhalder told Forbes. He explained that in the next decade there’s an opportunity for a great change in agricultural practices as the existing generation passes control to a younger (and by proxy, more progressive-thinking) generation. “We see that as a very powerful and positive thing,” he said. “The companies that are going to create the largest amount of stewardship are the companies with the triple bottom line: people, plant, profit.”

According to a 2020 journal published by MDPI, in comparison to the short-range concepts of sustainability, regenerative practices—including regenerative farming—reflect a holistic world view and aim for thriving living systems, where whole-system health and wellbeing increase continually. The journal furthers Somerhalder’s narrative and adds, “although the advancement of regenerative practices will require fundamental shifts supported by more awareness and education, theoretical and practical development, leadership, empowering communities, and integrating spirituality,” we should focus on regenerative sustainability because it addresses the “root causes of (un)sustainability.”

“Agriculture contributes more to climate change than all the cars on the road and all the planes in the sky, so that is where we make our stand,” Somerhalder emphasized.

The concept of Brother’s Bond originated during the early days of “The Vampire Diaries”—The CW hit series that aired from 2009 to 2017—where Wesley and Somerhalder first met and enacted the roles of the Salvatore brothers. Though Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore) and Wesley (Stefan Salvatore) shared many drams of bourbon on set, they revealed that the brown liquid consumed during the episodes was actually iced tea—so by the end of the day, they were ready for the real deal. Wesley shared, “Not to sound cheesy, but we would bond over bourbon after shooting.”

After 11 years, eight seasons and 171 episodes, Wesley and Somerhalder nurtured a brotherhood offset as conversations over their daily drink spanned from climate change and philanthropy to creating their own bourbon. They said that when filming ended, it was time to combine these recurring topics into a brand that extended beyond the show.

“We’re aware that although [“The Vampire Diaries”] was popular, it’s still finite,” said Wesley. “We want Brother’s Bond to transcend past TV and past our bond to create a community.”

“This has been 10 years in the making,” Ian Somerhalder tells PEOPLE of the craft bourbon he created with Paul Wesley, Brother’s Bond

Though it’s been four years since Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley last shared the screen as brothers Damon and Stefan Salvatore on The CW drama The Vampire Diaries, the real-life best friends haven’t missed a beat while creating and developing their joint passion project: bourbon.

In this week’s issue of PEOPLE, the duo open about their latest venture, their friendship throughout the years, and whether or not there’s a possibility of reprising their Vampire Diaries roles in the future.

“This has been 10 years in the making,” Somerhalder, 42, says of their craft bourbon Brother’s Bond, which will be available in stores and online May 1. “Our soul is in this bottle.”
