These days, we know Ian Somerhalder as the dark-haired beau with the piercing eyes. His tussled mane is now notorious among TVD fans. But there was a time long before his blood sucking days when Ian sported a very different look. The clean-shaven, charcoal-haired actor was once a rosy-cheeked 23-year-old with golden locks.

Believe it or not, there was a time when Ian Somerhalder was NOT a household name. In 2002, he had only a recurring role in a TV series called Young Americans and a few guest roles under his belt. But at 23, Ian was on the verge of vampire-powered stardom.
