We were introduced to the Vampire Diaries’ Stefan Salvatore this week, and we like what we see! If you’re not familiar with the show, Stefan Salvatore is one of two main characters on The Vampire Diaries and has been featured in five seasons since debuting in the fall of 2009. But it wasn’t until season four that fans saw an entirely new side of the character — and none other than Paul Wesley brought it to life.

Paul Wesley, who plays vampire and bachelor Stefan on The CW’s hit series The Vampire Diaries, is one of those actors who continuously surprises his fans. From good to bad, hot to ugly, tall to short – it doesn’t matter what he does because he can turn on a dime and completely transform himself. He has played a variety of characters in his television career, but none have been as complex as that of Stefan Salvatore. Not only has he had to play an undead creature with an insatiable thirst for blood, but also portray him as someone with real emotions and feelings. It’s no easy feat, but Wesley makes it look effortless.
Paul Wesley’s Exclusive Interview with Us Weekly
How is your character, Stefan, different than his brother Damon? I think they’re definitely two sides of a coin. I kind of see them as yin and yang, where one darkens and lightens another. It’s just a very interesting dynamic to play with. They love each other so much but yet hate each other so much at times. But it makes for great television. Who do you relate to more: Stefan or Damon? I would say that there are certain aspects of both characters that I relate to. There are certain aspects of my personality that make me like both characters in some ways. The thing about playing these characters for five years now is that you start taking on characteristics from them and you don’t even realize it until someone points it out to you. What was your reaction when you found out how Stefan would die in Season 6A?

How many times did Stefan and Elena make love?
16 times. Fans of The Vampire Diaries know that romance between its two leads has been on and off since Elena (Nina Dobrev) first met a brooding Stefan (Paul Wesley) in season one. In fact, it took Elena until season six to seal the deal with her longtime love – after dating other people along the way. That’s a lot of chemistry. Now that they’re no longer an item on The CW series, how often did they make love over six seasons?

Where did Caroline and Stefan play czardas?
In season two, episode 11, Bloodlines, Caroline and Stefan were performing an old Hungarian folk dance called a czardas (rhymes with hard cash). The song was composed by Johannes Brahms in 1868. Other titles include Hungarian Dance No. 5 and Romance Variations on a Hungarian Song. It has long been associated with gypsies but also found its way into many classical compositions and arrangements.
What episode did you Elena and Stefan get back together in season three?
That’s hard to say, because they broke up and got back together so many times I lost count. However, I think we can all agree that when Elena got fed up with Stefan and left him at her house party in My Brother’s Keeper, it was actually for good. It was such a classic break-up scenario: he couldn’t tell her about his brother being there.
In what episode of The Vampire Diaries does Stefan take off his ring until sunset to kill himself?
Founder’s Day, episode 6 of season 3. In what episode does Damon take Elena as his bride?: I Was Feeling Epic, season 8 episode 20. What is Stefan’s last name on The Vampire Diaries?: Salvatore How many times did Rebekah go to Mystic Falls to see Klaus during her stay on The Vampire Diaries?
Did Paul Wesley Like his role as Stefan Salvatore?
Paul Wesley is in love with his character. I definitely didn’t think it was possible to fall in love with a fictional character, but I did, he says. I met him when he was first introduced to me at that dinner table scene and I saw what he had going on for him: his good nature, his care-free attitude and his playful spirit. What else could you want? And speaking of Paul Wesley’s relationship with Caroline…
Who auditioned for the role of Stefan Salvatore?
Before Paul Wesley, who played Stefan on The Vampire Diaries, there was his predecessor and fellow Brit, Ian Somerhalder. While Paul has become a fan favorite for playing a compassionate and sensitive vampire—in contrast to Ian’s often snarky portrayal of Damon—he admits that he never would have landed the role if he hadn’t worked with Ian first.
How old was Paul Wesley when he played Stefan Salvatore?
Paul Wesley is 36 years old, but he still looks like a teenager on The Vampire Diaries. With dark hair and perfect skin, it’s easy to see why he’s called upon to play seventeen-year-old character Stefan Salvatore. We can’t deny that he was born for the role — although we do wish he would age (just a little bit) in between seasons!
