Ian Somerhalder will be making his directorial debut with ‘The Vampire Diaries’, season six, episode 16, The Downward Spiral.
Ian made the announcement on his Instagram and said: “Who is directing the next episode? On set with him right now;) Thank you to all involved in the decision-making process for giving me the opportunity to do this-I am so grateful. I’ll do my very very very best not to screw it up.”
He posted his message with a picture of the script, which was written by Brian Young and Caroline Dries.
Looks like he’ll be following in his costar’s footsteps. Paul Wesley made his directorial debut last season. Paul took another turn in the directorial chair for the episode airing after the break, Woke Up with a Monster, according to Wetpaint.
The episode Paul directed last season was the one where Elena and Stefan were married in an alternate universe. The storyline was about how the doublegangers are destined to be together. Though it seems Elena and Damon are denying fate.
We know what Paul’s next episode is about Kia having kidnapped Elena and Damon having to save her. Plus Enzo is trying to make Stefan’s life miserable.
What will Ian’s episode be about? There’s six more episodes till his directorial debut will be airing.
