Head up guys! For those attending Eyecon’s Vampire Diaries Convention this weekend, we have a VERY IMPORTANT schedule change to announce. Ian Somerhalder was originally scheduled to appear Sunday, November 3rd, but has had to switch his appearance to Saturday, November 2nd. He WILL be available early Sunday for additional photo ops, including the Salvatore Sandwich with Paul Wesley. Here is the official announcement from Eyecon:

We have just received word that Ian will be filming on Sunday. Rather than cancel his appearance, he and his team were gracious enough to work with us and change his appearance to Saturday. His Q&A, Photo Ops, and Autograph Sessions will take place Saturday. Since Paul appears Sunday, Ian has agreed to return Sunday morning to take further photo ops so the Group photos will still happen! If you purchased a Sunday ticket and would like to exchange it, you may. We will do this at the convention, a Sunday ticket will be in your package, simply come on Saturday and pick up your packet, and exchange for a Saturday. Please note that this is not a refundable change as the Schedule has been listed as extremely tentative and guest cancellation or change is noted on the refund policies page. However, any Autograph tickets purchased for Ian can be refunded if you are unable to attend on Saturday, his photo ops can still be redeemed on Sunday. Please check the schedule which has been updated.

Let me just say, although, I have not had an opportunity to attend any other conventions, but have had the opportunity to attend an Eyecon convention, particularly the one in March of this year.

So I am looking forward to returning in October and I hope you guys will join me!
