Ian Somerhalder is lusting after his day of raucous Mardi Gras partying after being shunted out of the festivities a day early to get back to filming season 5 of The Vampire Diaries.

The star returned to his native New Orleans to step into the role of Co-Grand Marshal alongside The Walking Dead actor, Norman Reedus, and he must have had an absolute blast. The faultlessly enthusiastic Vampire Diaries actor seemed to be less than chirpy about being torn away from the parades to go back to work.

He posted a photograph of himself hard at work on set with the caption;

Damon contemplating life after a lonnnnnnng weekend in New Orleans. I miss you

No wonder the hard working Somerhalder is feeling knackered, he posted a photo of him returning to work by helicopter earlier that day. From the looks of the festivities, I doubt the star got much shut eye!

While he may have had to tear himself away early, it looks like the hunk had an absolute blast from the epic Vampire Diaries float. As usual, Somerhalder didn't miss out on the opportunity to get up close and personal and deliver smiles around to his fans.

Take a look at some of the best bits below!
