In William Francis Hoffman’s musical Cal in Camo, he plays a character named Flynt, who is dealing with the grief of losing his wife by spending time with his sister and her husband, who are facing their own demons. Each character in the ambiguous play have one main thing in common, they are all lost and trying to find themselves again. Playing his role as Flynt in Cal in Camo was very different compared to the role he played as Stefan Salvatore in The Vampire Diaries for almost eight years. He spoke in an interview about how working on the same script for months helps you discover and learn more everyday about who your character truly is.
Paul Wesley also worked recently on the film Before I Disappear playing the character Gideon. This film tells the story of a man named Richie, who is at very difficult place in life, and is asked by his distant sister to watch his eleven year old niece for a few hours. Not only did Paul act in the film, but he was a also a first-time producer on this project. He had spent two years on this film and his hard work paid off after the positive feedback and massive success.
Another recent project Paul was a part of was Amira & Sam. The film is a romantic drama about an army veteran adjusting to being back home after a long journey when he meets Amira, who is an Iraqi immigrant. Paul plays the character Charlie who presents Sam with a profitable opportunity, but not everything goes as planned for the couple.
