Paul Wesley tries to get topless scenes written out of The Vampire Diaries and he would much prefer it if his co-star Ian Somerhalder did them instead of him.
Mr Wesley says he doesn’t enjoy being filmed half-naked for the show, and he would prefer it if Ian would be the only star who has to act nude in the programme.
He said: “I try and get those scenes written out! I did a lot in season one, was constantly working out and eating healthily. But I understand some scenes need nudity.
“Ian has to walk around naked non-stop, so I let him carry the baton!”
While Paul enjoys the banter between himself and Ian – who portray vampire brothers in the series – he is glad he doesn’t have a male sibling in real life because he would always be fighting with him over girls.
He added: “No way. I wouldn’t want to have to fight over girls with them. I wouldn’t like the competition.”
For his next role, Paul admits he would be keen to portray an older character.
He explained: “I wouldn’t mind playing a human. As I’m 30, any role where I’m not eternally stuck in the body of a 17 year old, really.”
