While he may already do a first class job acting as one of our two favorite vampire heart throbs on [The Vampire Diaries](series:200853), Paul Wesley has revealed in a One Question Interview the one thing he would study if he had the chance! Prepare yourself because it's probably not what you would expect, but it's totally awesome anyway: Journalism!
Talking to interviewer Rick Yaeger, Wesley said:
I would like to study journalism, I always wanted to be a journalist. I love the idea of researching something and then writing about it.
Now if that wasn't a pretty awesome dream already, Paul theorizes that it all probably stems from watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as a child and seeing reporter April O'Neil discover the four Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles whilst out investigating! Umm, hell yes, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is probably the best reason ever to have a career goal!
But even though his dream may have come out of a cartoon, it seems like this admission was far from a joke, with Wesley having mentioned it in multiple interviews, including with WCCB News, and Seventeen magazine where he spoke about how cool it would be to be an undercover journalist:
There's something about being an undercover journalist. I mean that's freakin' cool! Maybe that's just my Hollywood version of investigative journalism. There's this image I have of it being so magnificent, but it's probably a lot harder and grueling than my imagination.
Personally I'm a big believer in doing what makes you happy, so Paul if this is really what you want then you should get out there and become the journalist you've always wanted to be! Um, right after The Vampire Diaries has run its course and come to a satisfactory and complete end, OK? OK!
