Can you say Wasilewski? No? Well, maybe it’s for the best that Vampire DiariesPaul Wesley (Stefan Salvatore) changed his name. 

Though he was born in New Jersey, Paul visited his parents’ native Poland often as a child, even picking up the language. (Watch him speak some lines here. You won’t regret it.)

He’s still very close with his family members who still live there and once said he frequently Skypes with his grandfather.

Oh, and if you’re still wondering how to pronounce Paul’s full name, don’t worry. He’ll teach you how in this video.
