Hearts skipped a beat this morning when TV heartthrob Ian Somerhalder revealed that his character Damon on “The Vampire Diaaries” was getting killed off.  It was a joke, but did fans find it humorous?  Even PIX11 anchor Frances River gasped briefly realizing what this would do to the Team Damon/Team Stefan dynamic.  

Somerhalder and Rivera also dished about lightbulbs…of all things.  Turns out Ian just completed a photo shoot for Cree LED lights which are energy efficient–and of course it’s right up his alley.  The environmentally concerned actor created a foundation to empower, educate and collaborate with people and projects to positively impact the planet and its creatures.  He commended PIX11 Morning News for converting all the show’s studio lights to LED lights.  Go PIX11!

You can catch an all-new episode of “The Vampire Diaries” tonight at 8 on PIX11.
