Paul Wesley shadowed a carousel of directors for a year in order to prepare for one of his scariest roles yet — directing an episode of The Vampire Diaries! Apparently, he’s always wanted to direct, and told the executive producers about that early on the series’ run, but they told him that he had to go through the process before he was ready. And ready he is, as he’s going to be directing episode 18 of this season. This marks the first time that a cast member of The Vampire Diaries is making a directorial debut. And it comes to no surprise (to me, at least) that Wesley is first; he’s been telling everyone for three years now that he wants to do more than just brood.

Does this mean I actually have to watch episode 18 of The Vampire Diaries now?

    He always seems the (only) smart one to me ;). I’ll be watching this episode, too.
