Thanks to Vampire Diaries Source for the heads up on this feature from Women’s Wear Daily. Paul Wesley discusses acting and The Vampire Diaries. Thanks to Lovely Sucks for posting the entire article and photoshoot. You can view the rest of the shots and article over at their site.
Wesley has been financially independent since his teens (he got his first apartment in the West Village when he was 16) and, since a long-running gig on “Guiding Light,” has had recurring roles on “Fallen,” “Everwood” and most recently “24.” But “Vampire Diaries” arguably marks his most in-depth experience to date.
“Season one was incredibly taxing on me because I got a little too almost method and it got a little bit intense for me as far as affecting my personal being,” says Wesley (though obviously not literally method considering his character’s proclivities). “I’ve made a very conscientious decision to try not to take home what I do at work, which I was not really capable of at first. But I realized, this is a marathon, not a sprint, so I’m preparing myself for the long run.”
