Cook, 35, and the Originals actor, 38, tied the knot in August 2004 and welcomed daughter Charlotte in September 2013.


The Vampire Diaries’ Paul Wesley talks about the future of ‘Steroline’ and has the details;

When we last left the denizens of Mystic Falls, many of them were in mortal (or immortal) peril. Obviously.

Elena (Nina Dobrev) was kidnapped by Kai (Chris Wood), Enzo (Michael Malarkey) has vowed to ruin Stefan’s life, and Matt (Zach Roerig) has been roped into helping him. Meanwhile, Caroline’s (Candice Accola) mother has an inoperable brain tumor that vampire blood can’t cure.

To find out whether our intrepid heroes will ever experience any modicum of happiness, The Vampire Diaries returns from its midseason hiatus on Thursday, with Paul Wesley at the helm as director.

This isn’t his first time behind the camera: Wesley, 32, also directed the episode “Resident Evil” from season 5.

In an exclusive interview with PEOPLE, Wesley revealed what it’s been like to direct for a second time, and why his episode, “Woke Up with a Monster,” will be important to the development of the relationship between Caroline and Stefan moving forward throughout the rest of season 6. He also revealed whether there’s any prayer for Stelena fans still holding tight onto their OTP dreams, and how he’d like The Vampire Diaries to end.

(Hint: In Wesley’s vision, some of the characters don’t make it out alive.)

How did your experience directing the second time compare to the first time around?
I found myself to be a lot more relaxed and a lot more confident about it. For obvious reasons, because I had done it once before, but also because I got a little lucky this episode. I had no location shots, so I didn’t have to worry about daylight, I didn’t have to worry about weather … it was technically an easier shoot, and I was in love with the script. It was amazing, and I just got really fortunate. I was also working with a new director of photography – they’re both amazing – and I just realized, you know, a lot of directing is trusting your DP, and the experience really helped me.

Are your costars good sports when you direct them, or do they mess around with you a little bit?
They all say they prefer me when I’m directing, for whatever reason! I think a lot of it is because directing is such a … you have to rely so heavily on the actors, and so, your episode is going to suck unless the actors really nail their performances and so I found myself really having to connect with the actors and understand where they’re coming from and really emotionally connect with them, and people respond to that.

What can you tell me about your episode in relation to the cliffhanger from “Christmas Through Your Eyes”, when Enzo threatened to ruin Stefan’s life?
Enzo has a vendetta against Stefan, but in my episode, it doesn’t necessarily end on a really dramatic note. But, there’s a lot of foreshadowing of things to come.

Obviously, Caroline has a lot to worry about right now, but as you know, there are a lot of people that want to see Stefan and Caroline get together. Will there be any more romantic development on that front?
They have a really beautiful thing that starts blossoming. But, you know, it’s a little confusing for both of them, but there’s definitely going to be some exploration of that. And I really enjoy working with [Candice] and there’s definitely going to be a little bit of that going on. But, you know, I don’t really know whether it’s going to last, or whether the friendship is going to override that romance, but I think, eventually, we are going to get what we want – which is them doing together and having some sort of a romance. I just don’t know to what degree.

Can you point to any significant moment where Stefan may have realized he started to feel feelings for Caroline in the past?
No, not really. I think it’s been a slow kind of. … With it being so dramatic with her mom, I think that when things are dramatic, people come together and connect. I think that maybe plays a huge role in [Stefan and Caroline’s relationship].

Speaking of Stefan’s relationships, his distant niece, Sarah, will be joining the fold. Are we going to see any familial bond between them?
I think he views her as his little sister, in a way. He feels a responsibility, like a godfather, to her. I’m not really sure what happens between them, necessarily, because I actually haven’t gotten that far into [filming]. I don’t really know how that’s going to go. But, in “Woke Up with a Monster,” the audience sees her for the first time.

As a couple, are Stefan and Elena dead and gone forever? Or is there hope for Stelena yet?
I don’t think it’s out of the question. I think it’s contingent upon the writing – writers are really magicians. They can come up with anything, and it just depends on what the audience wants. Writers can make it seem like Caroline and Stefan are the end game, and suddenly switch it on a dime and then everyone is rooting for Stefan and Elena. You never know on this show, but I think that’s what keeps it fresh and exciting. If you do have a preconceived notion of what’s going to happen next, it just becomes unreliably boring, and so I don’t think you could ever rule anything out.

How does “Woke Up with a Monster” set up the rest of the season? What can we expect to see in Stefan’s storyline?
The stuff between Stefan and Caroline is what’s really going to be the driving point, the focal effort of season 6. I think that their interactions – their potential romance and friendship – are what really make Stefan’s storyline come to life.

The Vampire Diaries isn’t ending any time soon, of course, but what would you see as the perfect end?
I think Elena should go back to being human, if that’s at all humanly … [laughs] … if that’s at all possible with the mythology of our show. I think Damon and Stefan, to be honest with you, I think they’ve had a long run. I think that maybe when the show ends, they should sort of end as well. I don’t meant to be morbid, but they’ve been around for 160 years – I think they’ve had their fun. I think that would be a really poetic ending to the story.

The CW has released a new promo featuring The Vampire Diaries and The Originals;

EW’s InsideTV has shared some incredible ‘The Originals’ Season 2 spoilers, continue reading at your own risk:

Finn and Mikael team up … but who’s in charge? “Mikael doesn’t have a reason to hate Finn,” Narducci said, noting that Finn always hated being a vampire. But how will they work together? “Mikael says, ‘Together my son, we’re going to take down these vampires,’ and Finn says, ‘I will align with you and I know exactly how we’re going to do it.’ And what Finn does next defines him as a threat and a danger,” Narducci said. But will he be a threat to Mikael? Gatewood chimed in: “This is put up or shut up time. Klaus said to Finn at one point: ‘You’re a man now.’ And I don’t think Finn’s been given the opportunity to act as a man. Will Finn ever step up and really be a man and make his own decisions? This might prove an opportunity for that.”

Klaus will discover Kol’s betrayal. Although Narducci teased that a new threat will emerge to “distract Klaus from trying to find Rebekah,” Plec did add that Klaus at least discovers “what” happened to Rebekah, though not necessarily the “where.” As for Kol, Plec said “it means punishment and it’s enacted in a typical Klaus way.” In Narducci’s words, that means “brutal and swift.”

Esther makes a decision, and Finn gets angry. “We make it very clear the choice that Esther made and Finn’s feelings about it,” Plec said. “There’s a lot of things that close that chapter and then really launch the next chapter, which is the Angry Finn chapter as we like to call it.” But for Gatewood, Angry Finn can be traced back to his family: “I think the cool thing about the Mikaelsons is that as you meet them, you see the similarities. I think that there’s a ruthlessness that all of these Mikaelsons share.” And it’s a ruthlessness that will be put to the test. When asked if Finn is capable of actually killing any of his siblings, Gatewood said, “There are situations coming up in the next couple of episodes that will test that greatly.”

Cami is meeting Baby Hope … and becoming Elijah’s therapist? “Klaus introduces Cami to Hope and it’s kind of a beautiful moment,” Plec said. With Hayley and Klaus needing to return to New Orleans, and Elijah in need of psychological counseling, Klaus decides to bring Cami to the safe house to stay with Elijah. “He brings Cami into the circle of trust, and it’s pretty lovely,” Plec added. “And then Cami becomes kid of like the Sopranos‘ Jennifer Melfi to Elijah as he’s trying to work through the scars of his secrets that he’s uncovered as a result of his mother messing in his head.” The good news for Elijah? We’ve seen the worst of Esther’s witchy effects. Now, it’s more a battle of what he wants to admit to Klaus. “Knowing that his brother is not one for forgiveness, Elijah isn’t quite sure if he should come clean and how he should come clean, so that’s one of the things he has to work through with Cami,” Plec said.

Rebekah gets her butt kicked. Stuck in a witch prison, Rebekah will be less focused on practicing magic than on learning how to be a mortal again. “She taps into her witchy roots as much as she can inside this place which basically really frowns upon you practicing any magic at all, but it’s more about her getting used to her human body,” Plec said. “There’s a great moment where she goes to take a bite out of one of the guards and then is like, ‘Ew, nasty!’ The blood is disgusting.” And with a mortal body, come sprained wrists, limps, and all kinds of bruises. “She’s kind of like John McClane in Die Hard,” Narducci added. “For the first time in her life, she’s getting her butt physically kicked, and what I love about her is she still gets up and keeps fighting. That’s the Rebekah I know: Never gives up, always a pain in the ass, fighting no matter what.”

Baby Hope is in danger, but she’s also potentially dangerous. Klaus is no stranger to enemies, and with people trying to find his weakness, Hope is always in grave danger. But how worried should fans be? “There’s something special about Hope,” Plec said, with Narducci adding, “She is a little bit vampire, a little bit werewolf, a little bit witch, so what is she capable of and how will that be explored on our show is stuff that we want to play with and you will see some advancement in that plot in these first batch of episodes.” So what if Hope ended up being evil? She’d be “unstoppable,” according to Narducci. “But that’s why good parenting is very important,” Plec said.

There’s more Mikael drama on the way. Although Gatewood revealed we won’t be seeing many Finn-Mikael childhood flashbacks, he did hint at there being more to that relationship than we currently know. “I think the cool thing that’s going to be revealed about Mikael and his relationship with his children from the past is going to be from the tensions between the characters that we’re exploring now, the situations we’re exploring currently,” he said. “You’re going to learn something but you’re not going to learn it through flashbacks.”

Hayley and Marcel will grow closer. With Finn determined to prove that wolves and vampires cannot work together, Haley and Marcel will be drawn closer together, which “makes Jackson see the vampire-werewolf relationship in a whole new light,” Plec said.

Finn will take control of the witches, forcing Davina to make a choice. Even though poor Davina has “definitely got her eye on Kol,” according to Plec, she’s going to have to turn her attention back to the witches soon. Narducci teased, “Once Finn is controlling all the witches and all the witches are kind of being abused and hijacked by Finn and his purposes, she’s going to have to decide: Do I want to become again a part of this community and lead them out of the trouble that they’re in?”
