Paul Wesley Says He & Nina Dobrev 'Definitely Clashed' on 'Vampire Diaries' Set But They're Really Close Now

Earlier this summer, Nina Dobrev revealed that when The Vampire Diaries first started, she and Paul Wesley didn’t get along at all – and he just confirmed it this week.

Chatting with ET following the Tell Me A Story panel at the 2019 Summer TCA Tour, Paul says that he and Nina definitely clashed.

“What [Nina] said is absolutely true. Nina is my really good friend now, we talk all the time and it’s true. When we first started shooting The Vampire Diaries, we totally clashed. We didn’t [get along]. Creatively, it just wasn’t in sync,” Paul shared.

He continues that “the fans would never have known that. We’re basically driving each other insane and then after a few seasons, we developed this absolute mutual love.”

Paul added, “I actually think my best friendships always come from this evolution. And so now, I just adore her, she adores me and I talk to her more than most of the other cast members.”

Ian Somerhalder & Paul Wesley Were 'Bitter' About 'The Originals'

Ian Somerhalder & Paul Wesley Were 'Bitter' About 'The Originals'

Turns out that Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley weren’t that happy about The Vampire Diaries getting a spinoff in The Originals.

Ian, who played Damon on the long running series, got candid about how he felt about the show during the Wizard World Philadelphia 2019 convention (via CinemaBlend).

When he was asked to name his favorite “K” villain from The Vampire Diaries: Katherine, Klaus, or Kai, Ian admitted that Klaus was the one who ticked him off.

Why though?

“They were all amazing on their own. Klaus really ticked me off ’cause he left and went and got his own show. Rude,” Ian shared. “Oh my gosh, we — by ‘we’ I mean Paul and I — were so bitter with The Originals because we lost all of these amazing actors. Like, those were our peeps, dog. Plus, they had all those great accents.”

He added, “Klaus was an amazing — Joseph Morgan is an insanely beautiful actor.”

Legacies is the latest TVD spinoff, and will be returning for a second season this fall on The CW.

Paul Wesley will be back for a second season of CBS All Access’ series, Tell Me a Story.

The network announced that Paul will play Tucker in the forthcoming season, a struggling novelist who spends his sleepless nights toiling away in a secluded cabin in the woods and his days trying to prove he’s good enough for his beautiful fiancée as a dark secret threatens to destroy his world.

While the first season concentrated on the fairy tales of The Three Little Pigs, Red Riding Hood and Hansel and Gretel, the second season will weave together Beauty and the Beast, Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella.

The first season also starred Danielle Campbell.

Nina Dobrev Admits She Didn't Get Along With Paul Wesley When 'Vampire Diaries' First Started

While they have a good friendship now, Nina Dobrev revealed that she and Paul Wesley didn’t get along when they first started filming The Vampire Diaries.

Paul and I didn’t get along at the beginning of the show. I respected Paul Wesley, I didn’t like Paul Wesley,” the 30-year-old actress shared while a guest on the “Directionally Challenged” podcast.

Nina added, “I remember everyone would walk up to me after the show aired and they’d be like, ‘Are you and Paul dating in real life?’ Everyone thought that we had such good chemistry. I realize now that there’s a fine line between love and hate and we despised each other so much that it read as love but…We really just didn’t get along the first five months of shooting.”

That’s all changed now – Paul even came to watch a taping of Nina‘s now cancelled series, Fam.

The Vampire Diaries signed off after eight seasons on The CW.
