Ian Somerhalder shared his thoughts about "The Vampire Diaries" season 7.
In an interview with ET, the "TVD" star talked about the show and how the production is already thinking about how the series will end.
"It's something that everyone is talking about and there is a lot of speculation about it because we're so far into it," the actor said. "I'll be honest with you, right now we're just trying to get through this one and just make this a really, really good season of television."
Ian Somerhalder added that the production team just really aims to get through the year and make a good season. He also admitted that fans will be the first to know about the series' finale.
"I love working with Paul. He's my brother," he said about his co-star Paul Wesley.
"Paul has sisters - awesome, beautiful, totally amazing sisters -- but I am literally like his brother. You've got to figure, after seven f--king years together, we are literal brothers."
Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley were able to direct a few episodes for "The Vampire Diaries" season 7.
"Paul and I don't want to just show up and make the camera angles look cool so we look good," the actor said. "We want to dive so deep into the story that we still love and the season one/season two 'Vampire Diaries' that I remember."
The actor made his directorial debut last season. Somerhalder will once again be directing more episodes of "TVD" season 7.
"I just finished directing my episode from last week, and now starts the whole journey of post-production," the actor-turned-director said about episode 716, which will be aired by spring.
"I'm excited. I get the editor's cut in just a few days, on Saturday, and then I'll start the process of just really molding and crafting it."
