Is he the same person he is on camera? no one is the same person they play on camera. From what I can see is that Ian Somerhalder is a nice man. And probably cares about his fans. 你 can tell a lot from just looking at a person wheather it's in a picture 或者 in person. But in reality no one knows every little thing about him 或者 how he is in person except for him and his loved ones. And how I first discovered him, was through Smallville.
