Vampire Diaries star Paul Wesley (Stefan Salvatore) is too adorable. When asked about his most embarrassing on-set moment, he completely confessed to often being a klutz on camera. Watch him talk about his many face plants in this video from last weekend’s Atlanta-based TVD convention, EyeCon.
“You know, it’s never cool to fall down on camera,” Paul mused following a fan question about his most embarrassing on-set moment. “I fall a lot. I trip running through the woods. On the CW, we obviously have to look cool all the time. We’re vampires. Sometimes, Stefan will be doing his commanding walk, and I just like face-plant in the woods, like trip over a branch.”
It’s hard to imagine Stefan Salvatore as anything but powerfully graceful, so we appreciate Paul’s candor. In fact, Paul even went on to elaborate about the many “ridiculous” things he does on camera that never seem to make it into the blooper reel: “There’s a lot of stuff that I do on camera that is really ridiculous and, for some reason, never ends up on the blooper reel and I alway end up being like the stiff ass. I’m like, ‘What is this … Why don’t you guys put me face-planting?’ So, just know it happens.”
Hopefully, some of these so-called “face-plants” make it onto the Season 5 blooper reel. This is something we definitely want to see.
Do you believe that Paul face-plants on set or do you think this is just an elaborate ruse designed to make him seem less perfect? Sound off in the comments below!
