The Vampire Diaries’ Ian Somerhalder turns human for his Netflix debut in V-Wars

Hyderabad: V-Wars is a new Netflix vampire-thriller starring Ian Somerhalder as Dr Luther Swann who is reportedly the main character of this show. The American science fiction show is based on a comic called V-Wars written by Jonathan Maberry and Alan Robinson. The story is about a virus that turns people into vampires, and Ian ends up being dragged into this world when his best friend Michael Fayne, played by Adrian Holmes turns into a vampire.

Unlike The Vampire Diaries, Ian Somerhalder will be batting for the human side in V-Wars. It shouldn’t be hard since he had a good experience as a vampire for the former. Sources say that Ian also directed two episodes and is an ex producer for the Netflix series as well.

There were mixed responses from Ian Somerhalder’s fans. Few are excited about Ian’s debut in the streaming platform while others chose Damon Salvatore — his role in The Vampire Diaries — over Dr Luther Swann. The series will air on Netflix on December 5, 2019.
