Paul Wesley (full name Paweł Tomasz Wasilewski) went vegan over a decade ago, citing his compassion toward animals, and he has been a powerful advocate for avoiding animal products ever since. He initially became known for his acting role in The Vampire Diaries, and subsequently went on to direct and then produce the series. He has appeared in a variety of movies, including Mother’s Day, Convergence, and The Baytown Outlaws. More recently, he joined the cast of the CBS series Tell Me a Story.
The news of his vegan diet became public when he co-hosted the Humane Society of United States’ H-Couture 2012 event, a fashion show that features vegan designers. Since then, he has been seen attending a variety of animal-rights events hosted by Mercy for Animals and other organizations to help spread the word about veganism and the need for better treatment of animals.Read more
