If ever there was proof needed that hard work and dedication pays off, you just need to take a look at The Vampire Diaries actor Paul Wesley. Paul has been working hard in the acting industry for many years now and is currently reaping the rewards with the success of The Vampire Diaries.
Paul Wesley has appeared in a number of television shows over the years, as well as a few movies to boot. Paul has appeared in the likes of Smallville, where he played Lucas Luthor, and The O.C., where he played Donnie. However, he is credited in his earlier years under the name Paul Wasilewski.
Those are not the only big shows that Paul Wesley has appeared in. He also played a character called Stephen for four episodes in the hit series 24, as well as CSI: Miami, CSI: NY and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. Add to that the fact that he played Tommy Callahan for 9 episodes in Everwood and you get a good idea of the pedigree of this actor.
