The Vampire Diaries' Ian Somerhalder stepped into the room in a relaxed tee-and-jeans combo and had everyone in the room under his charming spell. He blew kisses to the crowd and said "I love you" right back.

Bernie Liu of Penshoppe introduced Ian as a man who was very passionate about taking care of the environment and announced that his company Golden ABC would support the Ian Somerhalder Foundation, whose aim is to "empower, educate and collaborate with people and projects to positively impact the planet and its creatures." WTG, Penshoppe!

Ian talked about how beautiful he thinks the Philippines is. "El Nido is probably one of the most beautiful places in the face of the planet." Ian flew to Palawan to shoot his campaign for the local clothing brand here in the Philippines. When asked about his personal style, he shares that he goes for comfort. And he says, the clothes from the brand are actually comfortable.


The fans got a bit of a thrill when Ian talked about being young and not looking his age. He said with a smirk, "Well, that's because I'm a vampire."

You still have a chance to catch Ian Somerhalder in the flesh this afternoon at 3pm at the SM Mall of Asia Atrium. He'll be flying off to Europe soon so you better make your way to Manila.
