Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley might not be bros IRL, but their friendship is like a brotherhood after years of working together on The Vampire Diaries.
In a new interview with People, Ian and Paul looked back on their times together after the ending of The Vampire Diaries in 2017.
"We talked about this over and over and over and the joke is, and it's kind of true, this is not like a friendship," Ian revealed. "This is like a brotherhood, it's like a marriage. We've been in it together for so long."
Paul noted that just like the brothers they played on screen, Damon and Stefon Salvatore, they compliment each other well in their brotherhood.
"We've obviously worked together for so long and our characters complemented each other on screen — we were kind of like polar opposites," Paul said. "And what's very interesting, is that we both bring the opposite to the table in a positive way. Ian's like the eternal optimist, eternally happy, eternally positive. And I'm like, 'Oh, this is going to go wrong. This is going to go wrong.' You can't have one without the other. Kind of like rain and sunshine."
"Well, without the rain, nothing will grow," Ian added.
The pair also talked about the possibility of bringing the brothers back on screen after The Vampire Diaries finale.
"With all due respect, it was such a great period of my life," Paul said. "And I'm so grateful, but for me, everyone has chapters and that's that chapter. And this is a new chapter. You don't want to ruin what's already been created."
"I often have said, because I've had this conversation so many times with people and I thought, 'Well, what would that look like?'" Ian noted. "And I can't imagine it."
Looks like we won't be seeing the Salvatore brothers back in Mystic Falls again anytime soon, but at least we can always rewatch the show on Netflix.
