Paul Wesley is certainly someone to keep your eye on. The New Jersey native has had experience now working with all varying aspects of production and creation of content. While working in front of the camera acting on the successful television show The Vampire Diaries, he also spent time behind the camera directing on that show as well.
Wesley also has produced a great deal of content, moving into features with 2014’s Shawn Christensen film Before I Disappear; where he also acted alongside Emmy Rossum and Ron Perlman. Another performance in 2014 which showcased a different side of the actor was his role in Amira & Sam, directed by Sam Mullin. No stranger to the stage from even his earlier days in theater studies, his recent 2016 turn as Flynt in William Francis Hoffman’s “Cal in Camo” was very well received and a departure from other performances, working with Katya Campbell playing the titular character and David Harbour of Stranger Things. Looking into his body of work as a whole so far, Wesley has proven himself to be a man capable of very different performances, as well as a collaborative spirit to yield the best depiction of the story at hand.
Many actors are very good at working on screen, but it takes a very different approach to be able to work behind the scenes. It is clear from the films and television that has been made thus far, Wesley has no sight of slowing down or settling into one facet of the creative process, which can only yield better and more innovative work in the future.
