Paul Wesley, who has been playing Stefan Salvatore on #TheVampireDiaries for what seems like centuries now, recently admitted that the script of the finale was so emotional that is made him secrete sweet, sweet tears from his perfectly-shaped eyeballs.
During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the actor revealed that the lines really struck a chord and as a result, he felt the pressing urge to send the show's creators Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec a weepy selfie as powerful proof of his true commitment to the show. He said:
“I wanted them to see that Paul Wesley could actually formulate tears in his personal life and not just on screen. I thought how it ended was powerful.”
Wesley then relayed what actually happened when the time came to film the final moments of The Vampire Diaries, saying that it was a total overwhelm of raw emotion:
"It’s this very interesting melancholy. I did Stefan’s final scene with Elena. It was strangely emotional for me. You’re saying goodbye to this time and this moment. The two of us are never going to be playing these characters ever again, and these were really important characters in television for eight years. That’s emotional."
Here's the official promo for the next episode, "It's Been Hell of a Ride," airing on February 22 on The CW:
Will you make loud or silent weeps when the finale credits for 'The Vampire Diaries' finally roll?
