Ian Somerhalder was a fixture at big events all year. The Vampire Diaries star suited up to present at the Critics' Choice Movie Awards and was nominated for favorite dramatic TV actor at the People's Choice Awards. Ian also maintained his philanthropic work and partnered up with LED company Cree to develop energy-sustainable lightbulbs.
While his CW series is on Summer hiatus, Ian has begun work on The Anomaly, his thriller costarring Luke Hemsworth. In May, Ian and his costar-turned-girlfriend, Nina Dobrev, ended their nearly three-year relationship. While the two will continue to work together, Ian and Nina may also cross paths at the Teen Choice Awards in August, as they are both up for awards in the Fantasy/Sci-Fi category.
Ian Somerhalder ranked 2nd in the Fresh Faces category.
