Later, he served as producer and associate producer for, “Norman” 2010, and “Before I Disappear”(2014).
Following “Vampire Diaries,” Paul Wesley had his New York stage debut in 2016. Appearing in William Francis Hoffman’s “Cal in Camo,” Wesley’s performance as the brother of the lead character, Cal was “superbly vulnerable,” according to one reviewer.
