Paul Wesley Embraces the Dark Side, Looks Forward to The Vampire Diaries Season 5

by at . Comments

The Vampire Diaries Season 5 kicks off on Thursday, October 10.

And while fans may be excited for the return of this CW hit, star Paul Wesley told us at Comic-Con that he's especially psyched for all that lies ahead for him in the role of Silas. Why?

Because the writers have listened to him once again and given the actor new, dark material with which to play. As you can see in the Vampire Diaries Season 5 footage that aired during the show's panel discussion in San Diego, Wesley is very much taking this disturbing ball and running with it.

Watch now to listen to Wesley speak more in depth about the role and to hear him wish the best of luck to The Originals:

We also spoke to producer Caroline Dries in an exclusive Q&A and the executive teased a new coven of villains on their way to Mystic Falls next year.

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.

Damon

I wanna say thank you for giving me everything I always wanted. A love to consume me, and passion, and adventure. There's nothing more I could ever want than for it to last forever, but it can't. This is the last time I'm gonna see you. This is goodbye, Damon.

Elena [to Damon]
