Actor Ian Somerhalder attended the 2015 Winter Television Critics Association (TCA) press tour held at the Langham Huntington Hotel & Spa in Pasadena, California last Sunday, Jan. 11. The 36-year-old "The Vampire Diaries" star appeared at the panel to tease some details on the second half of season 6 as well as promote the CW TV series that got renewed for another season.

According to a Just Jared report, the other attendees that joined Ian Somerhalder at the event include executive producers Julie Plec, Caroline Dries, Michael Narducci and "The Originals" actor Joseph Morgan (Original hybrid Klaus Mikaelson). The CW Network renewed "The Vampire Diaries" and its spinoff series "The Originals" for another season together with the other TV series such as "Supernatural," "Jane The Virgin," "The Flash," "The 100," "Arrow" and "Reign."

During the TCA panel, Ian Somerhalder talked about his TVD character Damon Salvatore's relationship with Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev) in the upcoming episodes of "The Vampire Diaries" Season 6. The heartthrob actor teased that the fans will be seeing "Delena" in their happy phase soon.

"The three or four [or] five months that were skipped over, the honeymoon phase, you don't typically get to see Damon in a time and space where he's truly happy. It's great to see anyone happy at any time," Somerhalder shared in a TV Line report. The CW star added that Damon and Elena deserve to be happy since they have gone through a lot.

In the early part of "The Vampire Diaries" Season 6, Damon had to endure being away from Elena when he and Bonnie (Kat Graham) was sent to the 1994 Mystic Falls prison world after the Other Side collapse. As for Elena, the character had a hard time accepting Damon's death so she decided to erase all of the memories of loving him through Alaric's (Matt Davis) compulsion when he was an enhanced Original vampire.

"They've been through a lot. Love trumps all. So when you see, you want it to win," Somerhalder shared. Click HERE to see photos of TVD star Ian Somerhalder at the TCA press tour.
