Paul Wesley chats on his cell phone while keeping a low profile as he leaves his hotel on Wednesday afternoon (May 29) in New York City.
The 30-year-old Vampire Diaries star carried a grocery bag with him.
“[Paul] is so happy,” TVD Executive Producer Julie Plec recently said of Stefan – SPOILER ALERT – having an evil doppelganger. “Playing the straight man hero is not always the most exciting job for an actor, and Stefan, of all our heroes, is the straightest on the show. We get to go deeper into his ripper side sometimes, but for Paul, those moments are just pocket moments of opportunity to dig deeply into his craft, and a lot of other times he feels like he’s just grooming his hero hair. So obviously, he’s very enthusiastic about this, and has been supportive of it all along. He’s been dying for something; to be a jerk, to be evil, to be the bad guy, to be able to stretch his muscles.”
The day before, Paul stopped to sign some autographs for fans outside his hotel.
