Paul Wesley himself has also been interviewed recently. Actually, more recently than you’d think. This morning, the actor was featured on “On Air with Ryan Seacrest”. He was the first guest of his “Hunt Week”, starting today. See what Paul had to say about his character below and listen to the entire audio at Ryan’s official site.
When asked about his character Paul says “I think he’s [Stefan] is a good guy, but I think he has some darkness inside of him…I’ve done some bad things.” He admits though, “I think it’s always more fun to play the bad boy. You will see more ‘bad Stefan.’ I think you will be very happy with it!”
And do you have a favorite moment or scene that you’ve shot so far?
The first thing that comes to mind when you ask me that is when Elena comes up the stairs after she’s been kidnapped and I had written her a note. I wound up getting a nose bleed just from that thing. And she walks up the stairs and I ran to her and hugged her. That scene didn’t have any words for me but just having that kind of bond with Nina, [it’s] probably one of my favorite moments just because it’s so real for me. That was probably one of my favorite moments that I’ve shot.
What has been your biggest challenge playing Damon?
The softer side of Sears. You know what I mean? It’s like (sings) “Come see the softer side of…Salvatore.” [Ed. Note: He has us all cracking up]
It’s tough, because there has to be truth and there’s a lot of real pain buried in that humor and that sort of the maniacal killer in him is starting to wane by virtue of the fact that again, not to sound like a broken record, all the stakes have been raised because he cares about people now. There are stakes.
