Ian Somerhalder may play a cold-hearted vampire on "The Vampire Diaries," but that's not the case in real life.

Ian, who is from Louisiana, has been very vocal since the BP Oil spill. He participated in Larry King's Telethon and also made a PSA to save the Pelicans.

Ian recently talked with ABC 26 about the need for more support for Gulf Relief. He shared, "People don't really know what's going on here. They don't understand the severity of it and that's troubling to me."

Ian has also partnered with Go Green Mobile Power, a company that creates mobile green power. "It takes a lot of power to run a movie set," Somerhalder explains. "We go through a lot of fuel. It's harmful, and we can start changing that a little bit. We can get rid of these noisy, stinky, disgusting gas generators…We'll be taking major productions green, like big concerts and music festivals. Greening the Vampire Diaries set is a priority for me, which we're going to be doing this year."


Like his fellow CW stars, Austin Nichols & Sophia Bush, Ian has used his twitter to rally for more support. Unfortunately, it looks like he may be taking a break from the social network, but he left this message: I've never been so happy in my life yet so truly sad at what we are witnessing. It seems as though our beautiful Gulf may be a pawn as we are in a much larger game that we didn't want to play…I challenge all of us no matter if you are in elementary, middle or high school- college of grad school. Ask, inquire, learn, fight, and let's figure out how to tell our govt that the future is Green and bright not black and toxic. Why can't we work with oil companies to spend $ money to find alternatives let's do it.

Jordin Sparks recently went down to the Gulf Coast to lend a helping hand for Cambio Cares. The episode will air on July 6 and will give you a first hand look at the devastation left by the spill.
