See  our interview with the Ian Somerhalder look alike, below.

- Zaur, would you, please, reveal some details about yourself?

- Well, I was born in Vladikavkaz, graduated from the faculty of customs. However, I couldn’t manage to work by this profession, that’s why I’m planning to start my own business.


- You, obviously, look like the star of “The Vampire Diaries”, Ian Somerhalder. How do you refer to this fact?

- Now, I’m more quiet about all that comparison, but there were times, when I was feeling nervous because of that.

- Do you follow that TV show?

- When people started compare me with Ian, I decided to watch the first season of the show, but lately I understood that it doesn’t interest me at all.

- Do you remember, when was the first time, when people started compare you with him?

- If I’m not mistaken, it was in 2010… Actually, that was the period, when he became famous.

- Has that alikeness with Ian Soerhalder ever helped you?

- No, I don’t remember such a case…

- What about getting part in a movie? Haven’t you received any suggestion?

- Of course, I think about getting part in a movie, but I haven’t managed to get such a chance, yet.

- The fans of TVD already know you as the look alike of their favorite actor. It’s interesting to know, whether Ian himself knows about you?

 - I remember once someone had posted my photo to his Facebook timeline, but we haven’t met in person. To tell the truth, I even don’t dream about that meeting :)

- In the show Damon has found his true love-Elena. What about you?


- As for me, I’m a typical single man… I haven’t found my true love, yet…

- Zaur, what would you like to wish the Armenian fans of Ian Somerhalder, many of whom, probably, have become your fans, too?

-To tell the truth, I have doubts about that fact:) However, if there are such fans, I wish them all the best and advise to watch more valuable TV shows, like “Breaking Bad”, “Dexter” or “True Detective”.
