‘Vampire Diaries’ Star Paul Wesley Hints Evil Stefan Isn’t Here To Stay

With all the drama that unfolded in Mystic Falls last season, “Vampire Diaries” fans are very excited to learn what all their favorite characters will be up to in season three. Personally, I’m most curious about the personality changes in the brothers Salvatore. Lucky for me, I happened upon the actors playing the men in question at Entertainment Weekly’s Comic-Con party recently and was able to get the lowdown on how they’re approaching their characters’ new moods this season. Very pretty Paul Wesley explains:

“I’m excited to do something different with Stefan,” he told MTV News about playing his character’s darker side. “I love the heroic nature and the noble side—that’s always going to be a part of him—but I’m excited to try something different for a little bit, not forever,” he teased, hinting that evil Stefan’s time on the show may be short-lived. (If this arc is anything à la Angel’s in season two of “Buffy The Vampire Slayer,” I will be totally pleased.)

When I asked if Paul is excited for Stefan to get a little more feisty with brother Damon, he admitted that if it came down to a serious fight between the two, Stefan would win out every time.

“I think at the end of the day Stefan would take Damon in a heartbeat,” he said with a smile. “[But] as much as we spar and we’re hostile with one another, we really love each other,” he added. “Our characters love each other, and I think that’s why it’s an interesting dynamic. We say all this stuff but at the end of the day we don’t really mean it.”

Awwww. Can you say bromance? How cute are those boys?
