Paul Wesley spoke with Zap2It about tonight’s episode, in which Paul Wesley directed. He talks about The Other side and some “easter eggs” (a common theme) during the vision sequences.

“Now that the Travelers brought Markos back things are starting to fall apart,” Wesley says. “I’ve been able to do some really cool visual stuff with the Other Side falling apart and disintegrating. I’m so glad I got to recreate the visual aesthetic of the Other Side because it was so interesting to me, getting to work with the production designer and the creative team to try to make a new way of telling the Other Side’s story.”

And for any super fans out there, keep your eyes peeled for a common theme Wesley wove into his vision scenes like easter eggs. “There’s an interesting thing I did in some of the visions, and I wonder if anyone will pick up on it,” Wesley says. “It’s not like a big deal, and I don’t want to sound pretentious but there’s kind of an interesting theme in the vision sequences that I’ll be curious to see if anyone picks up on. It’s a fun little clue for the fans.”

Check out these great interviews with Paul Wesley from TV Guide and THR. Paul talks about his recent directorial debut with tonight’s episode “Resident Evil” and some of the challenges he faced. Read an excerpt from each interview below then head over to both sites for the full interviews!

Although Wesley has been learning about the process for a while now, finally taking charge behind the camera didn’t come without its challenges. The biggest surprise? How willing he had to be to compromise. “You read something and you have a good idealistic vision of what it should be and then you get [to location] and the set isn’t exactly what you wanted it to look like or the actor has a different interpretation,” Wesley says. “So there’s an interesting compromise you have to make as a director. You have to be open to that and if you’re not you can get yourself into a lot of trouble. You have to be open to change at any moment.”

But because of his on-camera responsibilities as a series lead, Wesley’s one regret was not being unable to be present in the editing room to see his episode become fully realized. After sending off the footage to the editors to assemble, Wesley was only able to offer “a couple of notes” over email. “That was probably the most frustrating part of it,” he admits.

Another unexpected hiccup was weather-related. In February, Atlanta was hit with a massive winter storm that forced shutdowns on numerous productions in the area, including Vampire Diaries. The show went dark for a few days. “It was a really long, tedious shoot with weather issues, changing schedules,” Wesley recalls. But the production halt was actually a blessing in disguise, he says, affording him more time to prepare.

The Devil Inside

The Wall Street Journal caught up with Paul Wesley to discuss is upcoming directorial debut. Check out what Paul had to say about the experience!

Speakeasy: So you’ve acted, produced and now directed – are you positioning yourself as a triple threat?

Paul Wesley: I hate to say it, but I think I enjoy directing on “Vampire Diaries” more than acting on Vampire Diaries. I mean don’t get me wrong, I really love acting on the show, but there was just something about directing that really spoke to me and it’s really something I always envisioned myself doing.

I never really thought I would be a TV director. I always thought surely I’ll have directed my first feature by now, but that hasn’t happened because I’ve obviously been preoccupied for the last half decade filming “Vampire Diaries.”  So the feature is coming soon, but this was a good start and I’ve got to tell you it’s really amazing to work with a polished crew and with amazing people supporting you. It was a great way to get started, I can tell you that much.

And here Paul teases The Vampire Diaries Season 5 finale and season 6.

And now, I have to ask, can you give fans any sneak peaks of the last part of season five?

I read the finale and it ends on a really interesting note. I guess you could say some of the main characters, something happens to them that is. Season five ends on a note of ambiguity in that you really don’t know what is going to happen in season six because people sort of …a very mysterious fate takes two of our main characters.
