Actor Paul Wesley has become a household name, thanks to his role as Stefan Salvatore in the hit The CW series The Vampire Diaries. In the season four finale of the show, we discovered that Stefan was trapped in a safe at the bottom of the lake, while he was also a doppelganger for Silas. Paul gets to take on the role of Silas in The Vampire Diaries season five and he says that he is loving it.
Wesley revealed, "I love the challenge and I love that Stefan is in the bottom of a lake. I love him, but at the same time, I feel like I need a little space from Stefan right now. I'm not looking forward to the extra hours and having to work all day."
He added, "But yeah, I am. It's definitely a challenge. I've never done anything like this before. I don't think he shows his colours as much - I think he has a lot of fun. I'm going to approach him in a very light way. I'm going to have a lot of fun with Silas."
The Vampire Diaries season five will return to The CW on October 10. Meanwhile, the show will air in the UK on ITV2.
