The 2014 South by Southwest Film Festival (SXSW) recently confirmed that actor Paul Wesley's new film titled "Before I Disappear" will be a part of the event's lineup. The 31-year-old "Vampire Diaries" star shared the good news and expressed his excitement on Twitter about the inclusion of his new project outside the world of TV at the 2014 SXSW.

"Thrilled that our film 'Before I Disappear' will be premiering and in competition at this year's @sxsw," Mr Wesley posted on his Twitter account @paulwesley. According to the WetPaint report, the film "Before I Disappear" is first feature work of the short film director and feature writer Shawn Christensen.

Mr Christensen's other work projects include the short film titled "Live Action" where he won an Academy Award in 2013. The IMDB page shared the brief story plot for "Before I Disappear" and it reads: "At the lowest point of his life, Richie gets a call from his estranged sister, asking him to look after his eleven-year old niece, Sophia, for a few hours."

In the new film, Paul Wesley portrays the supporting character named Gideon together with his co-stars Emmy Rossum who portrays the character named Maggie, "The West Wing" actor Richard Schiff and director Shawn Christensen himself.

Paul Wesley is excited to diversify his acting career and roles outside of the successful CW TV series "The Vampire Diaries." Fans will be able to see Mr Wesley's impressive performances in other roles after portraying the Ripper-turned-good vampire Stefan Salvatore and the sociopath Silas.

When asked in his Mobio Insider page on which character Paul Wesley prefers more, Stefan ripper or Silas, the TVD star responded that it is a tough question to answer but decided to go for the Ripper Stefan.

Fans can watch Paul Wesley portray Stefan Salvatore in "The Vampire Diaries" Season 5 that airs on Thursday nights at 8 p.m. ET on the CW network. Episode 13 "Total Eclipse of the Heart" is scheduled to air on Thursday night, February 6, where Stefan sounds suspicious or even jealous with Damon's (Ian Somerhalder) rekindled friendship with Augustine vampire Enzo (Michael Malarkey).
