So exciting! Today Buzzfeed announced that Paul Wesley will be making his directorial debut with The Vampire Diaries Episode 5.18. This is something Paul Wesley has been interested in, and is finally getting his chance. There were reports of Paul in Covington, GA the other day on a tech scout. We are so happy for him!
After five years of playing immortal vampire Stefan Salvatore on The Vampire Diaries, BuzzFeed can exclusively reveal that Paul Wesley will make his directorial debut on an upcoming episode.
“It’s an honor and the cast couldn’t be any more supportive, which I feel truly grateful for,” Wesley told BuzzFeed of landing the gig, and becoming the first actor on The CW series to helm an episode.
Wesley will direct Episode 18 of Season 5, airing later this year, and he said the hour is “both nostalgic and suspenseful.” “It feels like our world, but something is a bit askew. It feels uneasy. And I respond to that,” Wesley added.
