With 4.9 million viewers, the series debut of The Vampire Diaries became the most-watched premiere in the history of The CW. Star Ian Somerhalder, who plays bad bloodsucker brother Damon, feels like celebrating — by taking your questions. Post them below before end of day, Sept. 14. Look for his answers on Thursday, Sept. 17.

Can’t wait to see what he has to say about our poll results. As I’m writing this, 2,400 people have voted: 12 percent said SLAP HIM, 7 percent said SMOOCH HIM, 81 percent said SLAP HIM, THEN SMOOCH HIM. (The poll was about Ian, not Damon.)
