    Yesterday Paul was in Salt Lake City, Utah to attend the Salt Lake Comic Con.First Paul did a spotlight panel along with his co-star Phoebe Tonkin and then he did autograph signings and photo ops. And last he did a meet and greet event. I was privileged to attend and so the pictures shared are my own. Paul was extremely gracious and it was so fun to meet him. Paul is sitting in most of the images since he injured his leg on Friday. He shared how he enjoyed working with Bryan Cranston, how if he wasn’t an actor he would like to be an investigative journalist like April from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, how he loves to travel and would like to travel to Africa and Tokyo one day. He has been a big fan of Ice Hockey since he was a child and he loves to snowboard. He definitely wants to do more directing outside of The Vampire Diaries and is working on setting up some other opportunities to do that. Oh and he would like to remind you to wear your seat belt!

  • January 29, 2015 talks to Paul about his new film Amira & Sam and what drew him to this story and character.

    The ‘Vampire Diaries’ star tells us all about his new indie.

    Over the past six years, fans have grown to love Paul Wesley‘s portrayal of the White Knight vampire with a heart of gold, Stefan Salvatore, on “The Vampire Diaries.” Now, those same fans will get to see Wesley in a very different, much slimier light in the indie love story “Amira & Sam” — he plays the crooked Wall Street cousin of the main character — and Wesley says he wouldn’t want it any other way.

    “This guy is definitely more human [than Stefan], and I mean that literally and figuratively,” Wesley told MTV News over the phone. “He’s very flawed. He eschews this enormous amount of confidence, but he’s really just falling apart; he’s this vulnerable, weak person who is doing all of these questionable things in terms of illegal activities on Wall Street. It was such a welcome change from what I do on a daily basis, where [Stefan] is all-knowing and confident, and he’s always doing the right thing. I really think it was a 180, and I hope audiences can see that.”

    Of course, it was more than just “a change of pace” that made Wesley, who had to travel back-and-forth from New York to Atlanta last summer to fit “Amira” into his schedule, want to do the film. “Amira & Sam” focuses on the love story between an American solider (Martin Starr) and an illegal immigrant from Iraq (Dina Shihabi), and the issues that arise from this pairing hit pretty close to home for Wesley.

    “My brother-in-law is Egyptian, it’s a middle eastern culture,” Wesley explained, when asked how he felt about the film’s depiction of Islamophobia. “I was exposed to it at a pretty young age… I generally don’t like these kinds of films that are like, ‘Hey, we’re trying to spread a message,’ but this movie does it in a clever way. You’re rooting for this character that is not from America, she’s not like the rest of us, quote-unquote.”

    This — coupled with his bro-y, challenging character — is what drew Wesley in to “Amira & Sam.”

    “What I love about it is America really is comprised of immigrants, including my own family,” Wesley continued. “I’m first generation. I hope people see [the movie] and appreciate it. That’s what I loved about New York growing up — I was always around different cultures. It’s great to do this movie, because even people who aren’t exposed to different culture like I was will take something away from it.”

    … And as for what Wesley himself took away from his “Amira” experience, he could only say great things — and that he hopes to do more independent films like this in the near future.

    “I love indie film because I can fit it into my schedule — I have such a tight schedule; I can just bang them out,” he concluded. “It’s hard to do a studio film in the short amount of time that I have off. Indie film can be risky, but it’s just so rewarding… You make this little film and then it suddenly gets picked up for distribution, and people are seeing it, and you feel a sense of accomplishment. It’s a little different than being an actor for hire, and you know what’s going to happen in a genre [film]. There’s something magical about it, it’s a magical environment. Especially when you’re shooting in New York City over the summer, there’s something about it that’s just one of a kind.”

    “Amira & Sam” is playing in select cities and on Video OnDemand starting January 30.

    This week Paul did an appearance on the series “The Talk” … here is a clip of his interview on the show where he talked about his new film Amira & Sam.

    Actor Paul Wesley shares behind-the-scenes stories from the set of “The Vampire Diaries.” He also discusses his upcoming indie romantic dramedy, “Amira & Sam” and how the film is offering a “date night special” for members of the military. Wesley says, “If you’re an army veteran or if you’re active military you can go to the movie and buy the ticket and your date gets a free admission.”

    But in the case of some of our fave CW/WB (depending on what year you were watching) shows like The Vampire Diaries and Gossip Girl, viewers were thiiiis close to witnessing OTHER stars in those roles. No, this isn’t like some of our other They Almost Had It posts featuring outside actors and actresses — in this case, stars originally went out for different roles in the shows they ended up starring on!
