111Known to many for his starring roles in such TV series as LOST and THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, photogenic actor IAN SOMERHALDER is about to find fame in a whole new milieu: comic books. Slated for release this week, FAME: IAN SOMERHALDER is a full-color, 32-page comic book being made available in both print and digital form from Bluewater Comics. Written by MICHAEL L. FRIZELL, the comic features art by MANUEL DIAZ and sports a cover by famed artist NELSON HERNANDEZ.

A former fashion-model-turned-actor, SOMERHALDER is also known for his work as an environmental activist and the comic will detail his efforts in helping to restore the gulf after the devastating effects of the BP disaster of 2010.
No stranger to fame in the real world, SOMERHALDER revealed to us during an interview just how he started modeling at the age of ten and the part his mother played in getting him off their Louisiana farm and into the Big Apple. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
