Paul Wesley is Good Vampire Brother Stefan on my beloved Vampire Diaries. Having been through the love triangle trenches with show creator Kevin Williamson before, I was poised to totally dislike this character and spend my viewing time snarking about how annoying he was and how bad his hair looked.
But lo and behold! Stefan Salvatore is no Dawson Leery! He’s a leg in a love triangle I can actually appreciate! He’s also a pretty good actor. Yes, pretty boys on vampire shows can act. His admission to Elena in Blood Brothers of his 100+ years of guilt and pain put Edward Cullen’s brooding to shame.
So last week I found this video on YT of Paul and co-stars Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder doing a TVGuide shoot last year. Good GOD did Paul bring the pretty! I mean, I know he’s easy on the eyes but I had to pause the thing so I could screencap this:
And today this popped up in my Twitter feed:
I love me a versatile guy who can look like a clean-smelling pretty boy, and a grungy bad boy. Well played Paul!
How many days until the S2 premiere again? 😛
