Paul spills that a main character will be dying in tomorrow night’s series finale!
We’d heard rumblings that someone will die in the Vampire Diaries series finale… and it sounds like it’s going to be a real heartbreaker.
Paul Wesley – who plays Stefan – told press including Digital Spy that it’s “definitely a main character” who bites the bullet in Friday’s episode.
“I don’t want to react, because I feel like this is a test and you’re going to deduce who it is,” he joked. “I’m going to do my poker face!”
But while fans might be left crying, ‘Why??’, Wesley insisted that “someone needed to die” in the show’s last ever episode.
“If someone had not died, I would have been disappointed,” he admitted.
Wesley also revealed that just reading the script for the finale made him well up… could this killing of a central character be what set him off?
He said: “I got a bit teary-eyed… and it was funny, [because] I’m a cold-hearted bastard!”
Who could it be? Stefan himself? Or Damon? Caroline? Bonnie?
So long as it’s not Elena who dies – Nina Dobrev is returning for the finale, but killing her off so soon after waking from a magic coma just seems cruel…
Whatever happens, Ian Somerhalder (who plays Damon) has promised that the Vampire Diaries finale will be a belter – or at least better than Lost’s…
The Vampire Diaries wraps up for good this Friday at 8/7c on The CW. The series returns to ITV2 in the UK next Tuesday (March 14) at 11.55pm.
