Sexy actor Ian Somerhalder has sent many a heart fluttering since landing a starring role in the hit television series The Vampire Diaries in 2009.

While the younger generation of this world have been drooling over this hotty - or character Damon Salvatore - since the vampire-inspired show made its debut, you may remember that Somerhalder played quite a significant role in Lost, where he portrayed Boone Carlyle for 30 episodes.

Shorter roles in Smallville, CSI: Miami, Young Americans and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation may also jog your memory as to where you have seen his smouldering looks before, while big things are expected of him in the future with regard to movie roles.

For those ladies out there reading this who are hoping to one day bump into the 33-year-old, he unfortunately (for you) is currently attached to his The Vampire Diaries co-star Nina Dobrev.

Somerhalder is also something of a philanthropist, with his environmental work raising a lot of money for conservation purposes - The Ian Somerhalder Foundation was founded in 2010 to help protect animals and the world around them.
