What is the most surreal aspect of all of this success?

I’m one of those people that appreciates and never takes anything for granted. Every morning, every scene, every place I get to visit is just so cool. I’m so lucky, and I realize that and don’t take it for granted at all.

I went to London for the first time, and I got to go to Elton John’s charity event, and I got to go to the premiere of Sherlock Holmes and meet Rachel McAdams, who’s a fellow Canadian and idol of mine, and Guy Ritchie and Robert Downey, Jr.

I’m in such a great position, I really love my life and I’m really lucky, and I know it.

What do you do to stay in shape?

I do hot yoga, three times a week, if my schedule permits it. In the summer, I like to surf, play volleyball and wakeboard. But, it’s hard because the schedule is so crazy.

Are you a reader? What kind of books did you read when you were younger?

I was into Harry Potter. I’ve read all the Harry Potter books and I’ve watched all the movies. When I went to London, I got to visit the set. It was insane. It’s huge! The whole place was massive. It was the Hogwart’s set, and I sat in Dumbledore’s chair.

I signed a confidentiality agreement, so I can’t tell you anything else. I’ve read The Lovely Bones. I’ve read all the Lord of the Rings books. I love fantasy and sci-fi. When I read a novel, I like to get away from normal life. It’s an escape for me, so I like to read a lot.

In the fall finale, Elena took her necklace off, which left her vulnerable to Damon. How is that relationship going to develop and how will their interactions change?

Now that the necklace is off, she’s very vulnerable. There is going to be a lot more of Damon and Elena. That’s as much as I can say.

Have you read the Twilight books?

I have read the Twilight books. I actually read them before all the movies came out. I shot a movie in Salt Lake City, where Stephenie Meyer is from, and somebody who knows her gave me the books and said, “You need to read these. They’re great.” They are really good.

She makes Edward seem like the ideal man, and that’s what makes you really fall in love with him.
