Happy 30th Birthday, Paul Wesley!

by Ashleigh Schmitz

As fans and followers of all things “Vampire Diaries” we’re glad to be included in Paul Wesley’s birthday celebrations, at least via this TwitPic of birthday balloons left in Paul’s dressing room by his castmates. How sweet!

While these balloons are pretty cool, what better birthday gift than “Vampire Diaries” winning six Teen Choice Awards last night? Even though Paul lost out to on-screen brother Ian Somerhalder for Choice TV Actor: Fantasy/Sci-Fi, being on such a winning show is a big deal—and worth celebrating.

Seeing the cast at the Teen Choice Awards has us ready for new eps. A few weeks ago, Nina Dobrev gave us Tweet Dreams when she wrote about the start of filming for “Vampire Diaries” season four. We can’t wait to see Nina’s transformation, and what that means for her relationships with Paul’s Stefan and Ian’s Damon.

Leave your birthday wishes for Paul in the comments!
