Paul Wesley, 31, has starred in a couple of films but it was the CW TV series and his vampire character that catapulted him to stardom making the actor one of the hottest TV stars. Now, Mr Wesley continues to diversify his acting career in the Shawn Christensen-directed film "Before I Disappear" where he portrays the character named Gideon.
According to the Wet Paint report, the "Before I Disappear" film follows the character named Richie who received a phone call from his estranged sister during the lowest point in his life. The story will continue to evolve on Richie after his sister asked him to babysit his niece.
"Before I Disappear is a feature-length adaptation of the short film Curfew, for which Shawn won an Oscar in 2013. The movie stars Paul as Gideon, Shawn as Richie, and Emmy Rossum as sister, Maggie. Paul is also credited as a producer on the film," the report further noted.
The Film Threat review gave the film a five-star rating describing the script to be beautifully written having realistic dialogues. "It is wonderful to see the superbly talented Paul Wesley step outside of his Vampire Diaries character to explore the multi-faceted Gideon," the film review read.
Fans can watch Paul Wesley as Stefan Salvatore in "The Vampire Diaries" Season 5 that airs Thursday nights at 8 pm ET on the CW Network. The hit TV series returns with Episode 16 titled "While You Were Sleeping" scheduled to air on March 20, 2014.
