We all know the "Before and After" of the other TVD hotties i.e. Ian Somerhalder (Damon) and Nina Dobrev (Elena, Katherine, Amara) but I kinda wanted to do one of our handsome gentleman, Paul Wesley a.k.a Stefan. He has come a long way from his first gig in 1999 when he played Max Nickerson in Guiding Light. After that he worked on so many shows and movies that if I started listing all of them we'll be here all day. So we'll take his journey from Guiding Light to [The Vampire Diaries](series:200853) in short n' sweet steps.

But we HAVE to see the little Paul/Stefan!!!

We couldn't begin without mentioning the younger Paul could we? So here's a picture of little Wesley:

Cute huh? Nothing wrong with a 12-year-old having a hobby!!

FUN FACT: Our devilishly handsome Stefan didn't go to prom! Why..you ask? Because GIRLS DIDN'T LIKE HIM. What?!

Now... on to 1999... Guiding Light:

Paul Wesley started his acting career when he was in junior high, when he was cast as Max Nickerson in the soap opera, Guiding light.
