Paul Wesley Talks Directing 'Shadowhunters' & Being Majorly Impressed With The Cast

Paul Wesley Talks Directing 'Shadowhunters' & Being Majorly Impressed With The Cast

Paul Wesley‘s episode of Shadowhunters is coming up this week!

The director and former Vampire Diaries star spoke with TVGuide about the episode, teasing an intense arc ahead for the characters.

During his time on the set, Paul was blown away by all the stars of the show, too.

“I just thought they all were so generous with their time and with their effort and just making me feel comfortable and welcome,” he says.

Will Tudor (Sebastian) was a big stand out for him: “One of the actors that had — I would say — the most intense arc in the episode was Will Tudor. He had the most sort of verbose scenes and did a really wonderful job. I knew he was good, I’d heard he’s great, but I was impressed with his work.

Paul went on to speak about his directing style and how he approached the intense scenes coming up.

“Particularly in genre, like supernatural genre, everything is so big in terms of the elements,” he shares. “You have portals and special effects and CGI and green screen, so when it comes to the actual emotion, I always try to tone it down as much as possible. That was kind of the direction we went in.”

Shadowhunters airs MONDAY, July 17th @ 8PM ET/PT on Freeform.

Paul Wesley Thinks Stefan's Ending on 'The Vampire Diaries' Was 'Poetic Justice'

Paul Wesley Thinks Stefan's Ending on 'The Vampire Diaries' Was 'Poetic Justice'

Many The Vampire Diaries fans were NOT pleased with Stefan Salvatore’s fate at the close of the show — but actor Paul Wesley thinks it was actually a fitting end for his character.

“It was something I was really hoping for,” he told TVLine in a new interview, “I’d put in a good word, because I felt it needed end that way. I thought he really needed to die.”

He went on to say that he thought all of Stefan’s evil actions needed atoning for.

“It was important poetic justice for all the bad things he’d done,” he continued. “He was a murderer ultimately. He’d found so much redemption, yet was still tormented. For me, him making that ultimate sacrifice was a great way to say goodbye.”

Paul actually thought the ending for his character was so perfect that he even teared up when reading the finale script for the first time.

TELL JJJ: What do you think? Should Stefan have died?

Will Paul Wesley Make a Cameo on 'The Originals'?

Paul Wesley‘s character from The Vampire Diaries is – SPOILER ALERT! – dead, but fans are still hoping to see him pop up on The Originals.

Several characters from the series have made cameos on the spinoff, but it doesn’t sound like we’ll see Stefan show up in New Orleans any time soon.

“I don’t think so. I think Stefan has been laid to rest,” Paul told TVGuide.com. “I’m trying to sort of do the opposite of what I’ve being doing for eight years for the most part.”

“I don’t think I’ll be doing a supernatural show anytime soon, that’s for sure,” he added. “I’m trying to branch out and do different things.”

Ahem, Paul may have forgotten he just directed an episode of a very supernatural show in Shadowhunters!

Julie Plec Reveals Deleted 'Vampire Diaries' Steroline Scene

Julie Plec Reveals Deleted 'Vampire Diaries' Steroline Scene

Stefan and Caroline share one of the sweetest kisses ever in this Vampire Diaries deleted scene that was just unveiled by none other than showrunner Julie Plec.

It seems that the scene was lost after putting together all the extras for the DVD boxset that will be coming out soon.

“A little backstory — our series finale had no official deleted scenes because we were able to get everything in,” Julie wrote to fans on Twitter.

“However a lot of scenes lost a lot of time from within the scenes themselves. Many darlings were killed. We had to lose some special moments.”

She adds, “I had asked for this particular moment to be included on the DVD, but along the way that request got lost in translation. @TheCW and @WarnerBrosEnt were kind enough to dig it up & send me a link so I could post.”

Check out one of the only deleted scenes below!

Celebs Are Horrified by United Airlines Violent Video -- Read Their Reactions Here

Celebs Are Horrified by United Airlines Violent Video -- Read Their Reactions Here

A man was forcibly removed from a United Airlines flight on Sunday night (April 9) and celebrities are horrified by the video circulating of the incident.

Passengers had already boarded the flight when United staff told them they needed four volunteers to give up their seats for United employees who needed them.

When no one volunteered, United staff reportedly chose “volunteers” at random. A spokesman for United says that four people were chosen by the computer at random and three of them left the plane. When the fourth wouldn’t deplane, law enforcement was called.

Video from the flight shows the man being ripped out of his seat by officials while other passengers expressed their outrage. The man’s head allegedly hit the armrest and you can see blood dripping from his mouth while the cops drag him down the aisle of the plane by his arms.

The man who was forcibly removed from the plane identified himself as a doctor who needed to see patients on Monday.

“We followed the right procedures,” United spokesman Charlie Hobart told the Associated Press. “That plane had to depart. We wanted to get our customers to their destinations, and when one gentleman refused to get off the aircraft, we had to call the Chicago Police Department.”

“Flight 3411 from Chicago to Louisville was overbooked,” the company said in an official statement. “After our team looked for volunteers, one customer refused to leave the aircraft voluntarily and law enforcement was asked to come to the gate. We apologize for the overbook situation. Further details on the removed customer should be directed to authorities.”
