Paul Wesley Talks His ‘Vampire Diaries’ Directorial Debut And His Award-Winning SXSW Movie
Back in 2012, I remember hearing him discuss how much he wanted to direct at a convention.
Now we know dreams really do come true. And the actor-now-director is very proud of his achievement.
PIX11 in New York City to discuss the latest in his career. After directing the ominously titled episode, “Resident Evil”, he has unearthed a whole new level of excitement for himself. After being on the same show for almost six years, I can understand that after a while it can feel slightly stale.
On set, his co-stars took the opportunity to do some hazing. Wesley says there was a little bit of, “oh, you’re the director now?” teasing. I can actually imagine Nina Dobrev poking fun at him between takes.
Emmy Rossum in the cast. The low-budget film won the Audience Award at SXSW which the humble actor is very proud of. He referred to it as a “passion project.”
Looking forward to Paul’s directorial debut? Don’t miss the episode airing this Thursday at 8pm on the CW!
