Paul Wesley admits he and Nina Dobrev didn't like each other on set of The Vampire Diaries

But they are friends now, thankfully.

Paul Wesley has admitted he and Nina Dobrev didn't actually like each other when they first started filming The Vampire Diaries. 

The actor, who played Stefan Salvatore for all eight seasons, said that he and Dobrev were "basically driving each other insane" on set - at least, at first.

Clarifying that they "talk all the time" and are definitely friends now, he told Entertainment Tonight:

"When we first started shooting The Vampire Diaries, we totally clashed. We didn't [get along]. Creatively, it just wasn't in sync.

"The fans would never have known that. We’re basically driving each other insane and then after a few seasons, we developed this absolute mutual love.

"I actually think my best friendships always come from this evolution. And so now, I just adore her, she adores me and I talk to her more than most of the other cast members."

His comments come a few months after  Dobrev admitted the two of them "despised" each other during the start of filming.

Wesley added that while he thought Dobrev's comments were "a little blown out of proportion," he could also kind of see why fans may be surprised.

He said:

"I think the reason people were surprised was because it was the pillar of the love story, I suppose, in the first few seasons and people, they were like, 'What do you mean they didn't get along!?'"

 

  • Seasons one through eight of The Vampire Diaries are available to watch on Netflix now.
