He even had a chance to direct one of the episodes,”Who Woke Up The Monster.” The Vampire Diaries, has given Wesley, the chance to display a variety of his talents for our entertainment pleasure but his work does not end there.
Appearing in the play, Cal in Camo, Paul Wesley makes his second professional theatrical stage performance. Playing Flynt, his character is processing the loss of his wife. He goes to live with his brother and sister in law, who are having struggles of their own and discovers how healing can help each of them.
