Paul Wesley Celebrates 'Frankenstein' at Opening Night Party!

Paul Wesley is dapper as he poses for photographs at the Off-Broadway opening night party for Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein held at the Green Room on Wednesday (December 27) in New York City.

The 35-year-old Vampire Diaries star was joined at the celebration by Robert Fairchild, who also choreographed the show, as well as co-stars Mia Vallet, Rocco Sisto, Krysty Swann, Avey Noble, Peyton Lusk, and Shiv Ajay Pancholi-Parekh.

In Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, “The joys and perils of motherhood, the hovering shadow of infant mortality, and the sting of loneliness and rejection merge as Mary Shelley creates her masterwork, Frankenstein. The Creature that Dr. Frankenstein produces, an assemblage of disparate elements, coalesces into a monster with a human soul. His horrific appearance conceals the gentlest heart. Through no fault of his own, he is forced to descend into evil deeds. Excerpts from the 1818 edition of Frankenstein, music, and dance interwoven with Mary Shelley‘s letters and diaries create parallel narratives as both dramas unfold.”

This limited Off-Broadway engagement will run through January 7th only.

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?
