What Other Shows Did Paul Wesley Appear In?
As talented as he is at portraying an undead teenager on The Vampire Diaries, Paul Wesley (Stefan) isn’t actually a sexy, blood-sucking holdout from the Civil War era. Shocking, we know.
The 30-year-old actor displayed his range on a slew of TV shows before TVD, playing everything from Lex Luthor’s half-brother to a drug dealer.
Here’s a list of the other series lucky enough to have landed Paul for at least one episode. Fun fact: Up until 2005, he went by his Polish birth name, Paul Wasilewski. Don’t even try to pronounce it.
