The February issue of Nylon magazine features Paul along with co-stars Nina Dobrev & Ian Somerhalder. Here is a sneak preview of the article.

LOVE SUCKS
Up all night with the cast of Vampire Diaries.

Those well acquainted with Serena and Little J may find this fact hard to believe: Vampire Diaries, The CW’s budding show about bloodsuckers and the teen girls who love and / or get eaten by them, has double the number of Gossip Girl viewers.

What makes it such a hit? It could be the current cultural zeitgeist of Edward, Bella, Sookie, Bill, and immortal drama. It could be the lingering teen appeal of star Nina Dobrev (remember her from Degrassi?). Or maybe it’s just damn fun and funny.

Luke Crisell – who calls the show “like Dawson’s Creek with less talk and more action” – sat down with the cast of and asked them himself.

On the similarities between Twilight, True Blood, and Vampire Diaries: “When the show first started… you automatically thought Twilight. But once you continue, there’s a whole other side of it that goes a lot deeper… It’s about letting everyone know that we’re different but we all respect each other.” –Nina Dobrev

On the sudden success of the show: ““Do I thing the show would be successful as it is, if it weren’t for all that? No.” –Paul Wesley

Hey Ian, is there any similarity between LOST and Vampire Diaries? “[My character] is gonna be the coolest character on television. There was no doubt about it. It reminded me of Sawyer, Josh Holloway’s character on LOST. He was always the character I secretly wished I could play.”

The hit CW show promises more changes as Elena and Damon find some common ground in upcoming episodes

LOCATION: Mystic Falls

THE SKINNY: At today’s Winter TCA press tour sessions for The CW, iF got the scoop on what to expect during the second half of Season One of their new hit show THE VAMPIRE DIARIES

As for the recent IMDB post about Elena (Nina Dobrev) becoming a vampire, executive producer Kevin Williamson says that “it’s a fake, not even close.”

He further explains, someone went on there, extrapolating elements from the book series and crediting it to the TV show, which is not the case.

However, Katherine’s ressurrection and The Tomb “is still in play.”

“Damon [Ian Somerhalder] has an agenda and he’s going to save Katherine,” says Williamson.

Upcoming spoilers include an episode where Damon and Elena have some alone time.

The Wrap
By Daniel Frankel

It wasn’t the easiest of falls for the CW, with its remake lineup of “90210” and “Melrose Place” struggling, and its once incendiary “Gossip Girl” losing significant buzz.

But the network still found plenty of momentum to highlight when its time came in Pasadena — with the casts and producers for upcoming family drama “Life Unexpected” and sci-fi/fantasy freshman hourlong “Vampire Diaries” addressing critics.

According to executive producer Kevin Williamson, “Diaries” — which seems a lock for a season 2 — has benefitted greatly from its Atlanta production location.

“I think we’re going to stay in Atlanta — Atlanta has been very good to us,” he said, noting the benefit of the Georgia state production credit. “We have an amazing crew down there that keeps delivering for us day after day. This is a great-looking show with a very polished look.”

For his part, actor Paul Wesley, who plays the dark, mysterious Stefan Salvatore on the series, said the youthful cast benefits from not having media-capital distractions around.

“We only have each other, and that shows up in the chemistry on screen,” he said.

“We’re not exposed,” concurred castmate Ian Somerhalder, who plays Damon Salvatore. “There’s no other media that we have access to.”
