Like I think Stefan is a boring character but PW is decent. I'm no way biased like BN. Of course the actor does affect how much you like the character.
They are ALL boring at this point..altho I was happy to see Stefan steping back from the "All in the Name of Elena" campaign when he told her she does not know what he looks like when he is not in love with her...but of coarse since this show is written by JP, the next episode or two he was already back being the all supportive and let's be friends Stefan..God, I wanted to cut that biatch! As for PW, well, what can you say of coarse the work the actor puts into the character is crucial no matter how shitty the script may be..however I think on a show thats called the Vampire Diaries, I think everyone stopped trying after season 1...Ian resorts to monkey eye-acting, and Paul when forced to play douche Stefan again seems more bored than usual, Nina I won't even discuss since yeah, I was kind over her acting abilities after s2 since clearly she is only good at being a bored Mary Sue and plot device Kat. Altho I did enjoy PW back in s3 especially in The End of The Affair with the 1920's flashback, to me he did those episodes really well.
Gosh, sometimes i fin dit so hard to believe that I am still watching TVFD and this is their 4th season already and it feels like nothing has progressed anywhere....and it makes even GG look way better in comparison with their s4.
