Paul spoke with the Associated Press about some of the downfalls of his fake fangs for The Vampire Diaries.
Paul Wesley has revealed the fake fangs he wears on The Vampire Diaries can cause problems.
The actor, 30, dons false teeth to play vampire Stefan Salvatore on the hit US TV show, which airs in the UK on ITV2.
He revealed: “We have these little caps that go on our teeth and sometimes they fall off. That’s always a little odd when you’re trying to be a vicious vampire and you go in to bite and your teeth fall out.”
The show is now approaching its fourth season, but Paul admitted he’s not sure what lies ahead for his character.
“I don’t know, I can tell you my hopes are that Stefan gets tempted by the dark side, I’d like my character to stay in that dark world. But they don’t tell me anything. I think there’s a possibility that Stefan may develop a relationship with another woman…”
The series is filmed near Atlanta in the town of Covington, but Paul revealed local residents don’t get starstruck.
“They’re oddly sort of numb to it, it’s very weird. Ian (Somerhalder, who plays Damon Salvatore) and myself went to Paris and we had these conventions and we went to a couple of these cities and it’s wild how enthused some of the locals are… But in Atlanta nobody really cares, I don’t think they watch the show!
“It’s kind of nice because they film so many films now, you have actors like Ryan Reynolds and Ben Stiller doing these films simultaneously in this little town and so I think they’re just immune to being awestruck by us lowly television actors.”
The Vampire Diaries: Season 3 is out on Blu-ray and DVD from August 20 and is available to download from iTunes.
