Paul Wesley's Reaction to Stefan's Death on Vampire Diaries

The Vampire Diaries Series Finale Victim Speaks

Warning: major spoilers about the Vampire Diaries series finale ahead.

On the big Vampire Diaries series finale, there's one big character death after a final showdown: Stefan. His death was actually pretty predictable, and this guy's a vampire, and the series was at the end of its run anyway, but it's still a little sad for viewers who have stuck with this character for eight seasons. But how was it for the man who played the vampire with the heart of gold, Paul Wesley?

Wesley, along with the other main cast, talked to Entertainment Weekly about how the series ended, and he revealed exactly how he really felt about being killed off: he wanted it.

"I didn't [know ahead of time about death]. I had been telling them that I think Stefan should die. He's been the Ripper; he was the one who caused his brother to turn into a vampire. All the murders Damon did were all my fault really, if it comes down to the genesis of it. I just felt like he's been the hero of the story to a degree and it only made sense for him to die at the end. They totally teased me and said that he wouldn't die, so they really taunted me for a couple months. I read the finale script on an airplane. The first five acts, I was kind of like, 'Okay yeah, this is interesting,' but it didn't really hit me until the sixth act. And then the sixth act I teared up and I never really tear up when it comes to sentimental Vampire Diaries-esque things. I thought how it ended was powerful."
