The “Vampire Diaries” panel at Comic-Con got semi-awkward on Saturday when show co-stars and ex real-life couple Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev attended together.
The couple broke up in May, but have remained friends since the split. However, that didn’t erase the noticeable tension in the room.
“Anytime Ian talked, she would look the other way and appear disinterested,” an eyewitness told Hollyscoop. “There was a producer separating them on the panel, so that they wouldn’t have to sit beside each other.”
The most obvious exchange was when Nina rhetorically asked, “Is there anyone [her character] Elena hasn’t made out with?” to which a member of the audience replied, “Me!”
That’s when Ian jumped in and addressed the audience member with, “Give me your number. I’ll set you up.”
