Paul Wesley Bio

Paul Wesley, born in the summer of 1982, grew up with his parents and three sisters in New Jersey. His family is of Polish descent, and as a result of this he can speak fluent Polish. While Paul was in his junior year of high school he joined the cast of the popular soap opera Guiding Light. He was originally born with the name Paul Wasilewski, but with the support of his family decided to change it so it would be easier to pronounce.

TV Star

After leaving Guiding Light, Paul went on to make many appearances on popular television programs like Law and Order, Smallville, Everwood and 24. Some of his more recognized roles include playing Tommy in American Dreams and Damian in 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter. In 2003, Paul took on a one-episode role in the teen comedy The OC. He played bad boy Donnie who worked with Ryan at the Crab Shack. His character was responsible for shooting Marissa Cooper’s then-boyfriend Luke.

The Vampire Diaries

In 2009, Paul was cast as Stefan Salvatore on the CW’s new hit show The Vampire Diaries. Stefan is a friendly vampire who falls in love with Elena Gilbert (played by Nina Dobrev), a beautiful high school girl that resembles an old girlfriend. Stefan and his evil vampire brother Damon (played by Ian Somerhalder) compete for the affection of Elena in an epic romantic battle that has spanned two seasons. With Stefan’s mysterious aura and delicious good looks, it is hard to understand why Elena is having such a hard time choosing!

Many of the reviews and critics say it's bad because they are only looking at it from 'comic to movie' perspective. It was still a really cool movie and you should go see it. I'd have to agree with this. The movie itself was great. I think some people looked at it poorly because they were expecting something more similar to the older films or comparing it too hard to the comics. I personally think that it was a great way to reinvent some of the characters.

"It's so hard to talk when you want to k-ll yourself. That's above and beyond everything else, and it's not a mental complaint-it's a physical thing, like it's physically hard to open your mouth and make the words come out. They don't come out smooth and in conjunction with your brain the way normal people's words do; they come out in chunks as if from a crushed-ice dispenser; you stumble on them as they gather behind your lower lip. So you just keep quiet.” Ned Vizzini, "It's Kind of a Funny Story"

Powerslave
“Isn't there something in living dangerously?' There's a great deal in it,' the Controller replied. 'Men and women must have their adrenals stimulated from time to time.' What?' questioned the Savage, uncomprehending. It's one of the conditions of perfect health. That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.' V.P.S.?' Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconvenience.' But I like the inconveniences.' We don't,' said the Controller. 'We prefer to do things comfortably.' But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.' In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence. I claim them all,' said the Savage at last. Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”
