Which TV character's bedroom are you dying to see?

Ian-SomerhalderImage Credit: Quantrell Colbert/The CWOh, don’t look at me like that. I’m asking this question not because I want you to imagine where the fictional magic happens, but because there comes a time when you’re such a fan of a show that you start wanting to piece together more of a character’s personality — and no place is as fun to do that in as his or her bedroom (with an adjoining bathroom, preferably). Sometimes you like what you see: the lightsabers mounted above Howard’s bed on The Big Bang Theory. Sometimes you don’t: I’ve almost come to terms with the fact that Bones‘ Seeley Booth wears a beer helmet in the tub. Either way, it can be a revealing look into the character as well as a refreshing change of scenery. So, which TV character’s bedroom would you love to finally see?

Like many viewers of The Vampire Diaries, I’ve been wondering where Damon sleeps when he’s not having sex on the living room floor. We’ll get our answer when the show returns with new episodes next week. Exec producer Julie Plec says they’ve been waiting to build that set until they had a reason to need it — and apparently they found it. Ian Somerhalder admits the addition took him by surprise: “I never imagined Damon having a bedroom,” he says. “I figured he always slept up in a rafter or somewhere atop of an oak tree. I honestly didn’t know.” But he’s more than happy with what Plec, exec producer Kevin Williamson, and production designer Garreth Stover created for him. “By virtue of the fact that Damon is not the most sentimental individual, he doesn’t keep anything from the past. It’s not a room full of antiquities and memories, such as Stefan’s,” Somerhalder says. “But it’s big, it’s very masculine, and it’s classy.” It’s also sexy. “The one really amazing thing, of course,” he continues, “[is] they had this bed custom-made. This thing, I’m not even kidding you, it’s gigantic. You splice together two king-sized beds… Damon could fit an entire sorority on this bed, which I’m sure at some point he will.” (Williamson likes to refer to it as Damon’s “throne.”)

As for Damon’s bathroom, well, Plec says its sexy parts — the standalone tub and seamless glass shower — will “get a lot of use.” Fans know that Somerhalder was filming bath and shower scenes last month. Producers won’t say who gets wet with him, but Plec did confirm, if memory serves her correctly, “it’s one bath scene in one episode, and a shower scene in the next.” (You’re welcome.) Says Williamson, “We talked and talked and talked. We figured Uncle Zach remodeled the bathroom, so we got a really sexy bathroom. We made sure we got a nice little stacked stone rain shower in there. I just sort of made it the bathroom I wanted to shower in.” Somerhalder approves, and says the shower’s not exactly little: “The shower could fit a sorority and a volleyball team.”

    vampire diaries is the show!! can’t wait for it to come back on tv!! but aside from seeing damon’s, I think I would really like to see….. jim and pams? or maybe leslie knope’s bedroom.

  • Mr. Holloway

    I would’ve liked to have gotten a look at Jack Bauer’s bedroom before “24” went off the air. (Ha! Jack Bauer doesn’t sleep!)

  • Karate Pants

    Oh, easy. Creepy Glen from Mad Men. Can you imagine what he’s got squirreled away under his mattress?

    • tracy bluth

      Oh dear God…I don’t even think I want to find out.

  • Katie

    I’d love to see where Eric Northman sleeps…

    • Kim

      YES! I want to see Eric’s room!

  • Nina

    Shawn Spencer’s from Psych. They have shown his childhood bedroom, but he moves from place to place so I don’t think we’ve seen his current bedroom. Can only imagine the pineapple themed stuff we would see there.

    • Marie

      Yes!!! The only time they showed his room was when he lived in the old laundromat, I always wonder where he lives now!!!

  • Candace

    Eric Northman

  • Mae

    Britta, Jeff and Pierce from Community.

    • Flyer

      We already saw their bedrooms. If I remember correctly, the first show of Season 2 began with the camera showing us all of the Community characters waking up in their bedrooms. Pierce had satin sheets and a large photo of a younger Pierce over his bed. Britta’s room was a mess, and she slept in a ratty t-shirt. Annie’s room was all pink and girly. Shirley’s bedroom had a tacky oil painting and a cross on the wall, and her small kids had crawled into bed with her. Abed’s room was phenomenally neat and filled with DVDs, while Troy’s room featured a large Spiderman poster (a nice shout-out to fans’ push for Donald Glover to be the next Spiderman). The only room I honestly can’t remember was Jeff’s.

      • Mae

        i don’t remember. will have to go back and watch!

    • Zip

      Student’s Chang’s bedroom.

  • Sarah

    clarissa from clarissa explains it all

    • mscisluv

      Um…we saw her bedroom all the time. Sarcasm, I’m hoping?

      • Sarah

        really? oh. I don’t remember that

  • Tina

    Neal Caffrey from White Collar bedroom; just because he’s Neal fricking Caffrey
    Spencer Reid from Criminal Minds; I would like to know if he even sleeps and if his house is as cluttered and spartan like whenever I imagine it to be

    • rehabber

      They have shown Neal’s bedroom several times. It is just off the main room and Alex was even in his bed one time.

  • Strepsi

    I don;t think we’ve ever seen Jay and Gloria’s bedroom on Modern Family (I’m guessing it would be kinky).

    Also I would love to see Phil Keoghan from the Amazing Race’s bedroom (even though he’s not fictional)

    Finally, I am uncertain how Finn and Kurt’s bedrooms ended up looking on Glee (once they stopped bunking together and romoved the f***y lamps and curtains…) but I bet Kartofsky has a gold-mine of “Men’s Fitness” magazines by his bed if you know what I mean!

    • JAM

      We’ve seen Jay & Gloria’s bedroom plenty of times. Last week for one. The turtle killing episode for another. And others too…Gloria throwing bras at Phil is another example.

  • Stephanie

    It is about time for them to invite all of us into Mr. Eric Northman’s (bow bow)LOL) bedroom….

  • Ms. Dipesto

    I’d like to see Castle’s bedroom, up close and personal!

  • Ryan

    I’d love to get a gander at the Judy Garland and Madonna posters adorning Blaine’s wall in GLEE!

  • Ian


  • Mandy

    Spencer Reid from Criminal Minds. I almost see him being a bit of a hoarder, with books and papers every where, but he is also so perfect, he could live in a near perfect, almost clinical bedroom. Plus, I just love him!
