It's been announced that the very first actor to direct an episode of the The Vampire Diaries will be 31-year-old Paul Wesley, where the plan is for him to make his directorial debut on episode 18 of Season 5.
Here's what he had to say about it (via JustJaredJr):
It’s an honor and the cast couldn’t be any more supportive, which I feel truly grateful for.
He elaborated that it will be:
Both nostalgic and suspenseful. It feels like our world, but something is a bit askew. It feels uneasy. And I respond to that. It’s not Stefan-light, but it’s also not Stefan-heavy.
And how much can we expect to see of his character in that episode?
I’d say it is somewhere in the middle. A good friend of mine recently directed a film he also starred in, and I was on set the whole time, so I got to see firsthand what that experience looked like.
Are you excited to see what goods will come up with in Season 5, episode 18 of The Vampire Diaries?
