Paul Wesley has confirmed that he and former “Vampire Diaries” co-star, Nina Dobrev is not on the set during the first seasons of the hit CW series.
“I think that’s the point, only to find that she was making, and I can back her on this, is that we are all leaders, [the] first couple of years in terms of just getting on each other’s nerves, and then to develop this beautiful friendship,” Wesley, 37, told Us Weekly at the Television Critics Association press tour on Thursday. “So it’s like a beautiful, happy ending.”
Dobrev, for the first time revealed to them during their initial dislike for one another on a podcast in the past month.
“Paul, I didn’t get around to it in the beginning of the show. I had respect for Paul Wesley, I just didn’t like Paul Wesley,” the 30-year-old was admitted to the former Vampire Diaries co-stars Candice King, and Kayla Ewell for their “Remains Challenged” in his podcast.
Wesley and Dobrev are played Stefan Salvatore and Elena Gilbert in “Vampire Diaries,” who is the love interest for the first few seasons of the show and her character, along with Stefan’s brother, Damon, played by Ian Somerhalder.
“I have to remind myself that each of them would walk up to me after the show was aired, and they’d be like, ‘Are you and Paul in real life?” Everyone thought that we had such a great chemistry,” she said. “I realize now that there is a fine line between love and hate, we despise each other so much, that it is to read when you are in love, but … We simply can’t get past the first five and a half months of shooting.”
Wesley continued to meet with reporters, “I think sometimes when people are working non-stop, the pressure on non-stop for years and years and years on end, you’re just — you don’t have to appreciate the person in front of you. You’re like, ” Oh, you know what, I’m worn out and tired.” And I can think of right now, it’s such a nice kind of story, because we’re such good friends now. I think it was a great lesson to learn. It’s like the people that maybe you don’t have to do it in the beginning, later on you’ll be surprised, and I think a lot of my friends are like that.”
Dobrev, who dated Somerhalder for nearly three years, during the filming of the show, which also confirmed her friendship with Brad has grown over the years.
“Everyone, I think I’ll probably see him make the most of it and go out with him the most. We are probably the closest,” she said, adding that she loved hanging out with him and his wife, Ines de Ramon. “It’s so funny how time changes everything, and for that I would have never thought that he would have to be one of my best friends.”
