Instant Follow Friday: Resident ‘Vampire Diaries’ Hottie Paul Wesley, a.k.a. Stefan Salvatore

at 7:30 am | By

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you should know by now that the cast of The Vampire Diaries is incredibly good looking. Paul Wesley, a.k.a. Stefan Salvatore, included.

The seventh season of The Vampire Diaries premiered on The CW last night (Oct. 8), marking the first season without main protagonist Elena (Nina Dobrev), and the end of a very complicated love triangle between Stefan, Elena, and Stefan’s bro Damon Salvatore, played by Ian Somerhalder.

But as they say: absence makes the heart grow fonder, and it’ll be interesting to see how the show evolves with one character gone, but not forgotten.

Wesley’s character may just be the most dreamy vampire out there, as in real life he’s just as endearing. He takes to social media to flaunt his bromance with his co-star Somerhalder, as well as promote various environmental and animal causes. Oh, and let’s not forget his relationship with his other beautiful co-star, Phoebe Tonkin, who now stars on The Vampire Diaries spinoff The Originals.

Watch The Vampire Diaries on the CW, Thursdays at 8/7 c. Follow Paul Wesley on Instagram @paulvedere and on Twitter @paulwesley. Check out his best Instagram photos in the gallery above! See his best tweets below:
