Variety reports that Paul took the stage and credited the many Vampire Diaries fans with helping him spread the word.
When “The Vampire Diaries” star Paul Wesley took the stage at the Humane Society of the United States’ 60th anniversary gala, the actor noted his discomfort with having his accolades announced as he shared, “I’m kind of blushing.”
The Humane Generation honoree has used social media to educate his millions of followers about the horrors of factory farming and credited the legions of dedicated ”Vampire Diaries” fans with helping him spread the word.
“I know that one of the main reasons that I’m here is because I happen to be on a television series that has a massive youth following,” Wesley said.
He also expressed that his experiences with the fans have led him to belief that the future work of orgs like the HSUS is in good hands.
