The Vampire Diaries actor Paul Wesley has revealed that he does not want his character Stefan to go back to being good, as he is having too much fun playing the bad boy. Paul admitted that he understands that too much of the same can become a bit boring but he hopes that he can continue playing bad Stefan for a little while longer yet.
Wesley explained, "There's layers of humanity, regret and sadness in his eyes, but it's all sort of masked by this sociopathic, raging maniac who's scaring her to death. His relationship with Elena (Nina Dobrev) is sort of the antithesis of what it was, which was this really romantic, soft, protective relationship."
He added: "Elena is the key to everything in Stefan's battle with Klaus, and Stefan will go to any extreme to get what he needs, which makes him much more terrifying. I don't want the arc to end. I don't want to go back to being the good guy. Julie said we're going to milk it as long as we can. I also understand that things get old. Hopefully this is still new and fresh.”
Paul concluded, “You know, he was the good guy for two years. Maybe I can do another two years as the bad guy to balance it out! I think everybody likes playing the bad boy." The Vampire Diaries continues on Thursday nights on The CW at 8/7c.
