Paul Wesley Making Directorial Debut on 'Vampire Diaries'!

Paul Wesley is set to make his directorial debut on an upcoming episode of The Vampire Diaries and we are so excited!!!

“It’s an honor and the cast couldn’t be any more supportive, which I feel truly grateful for,” the 31-year-old actor told Buzzfeed. He will be directing episode 18 of season 5 and will become the first actor of the series to direct an episode.

Paul says the episode is “both nostalgic and suspenseful. It feels like our world, but something is a bit askew. It feels uneasy. And I respond to that.”

“It’s not Stefan-light, but it’s also not Stefan-heavy,” Paul added about the amount of screen time his character gets in the episode. “I’d say it is somewhere in the middle. A good friend of mine recently directed a film he also starred in, and I was on set the whole time, so I got to see firsthand what that experience looked like.”

ARE YOU EXCITED for Paul Wesley’s directorial debut on The Vampire Diaries?
