It’s confirmed from by sides! After Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev revealed that she and co-star Paul Wesley really clashed while shooting the show, the man is now also saying the same thing!
Judging by what the actors said, it’s safe to assume that Paul and Nina did not like one another nearly as much behind the scenes as their characters did.
Fans of Vampire Diaries were pretty shocked to learn from the actress that while on set, she and Paul would clash a lot, especially since nowadays they seem pretty friendly even though they are no longer working together.
While at the Television Critics Association summer press tour, Wesley confirmed Nina’s previous statement about their former feud, saying that ‘I think the point Nina was making, and I will totally back her up on this one, is that we totally clashed in the first couple of years in terms of getting on one another’s nerves, and then developed a wonderful friendship. So it is like this nice, happy ending.
The man made sure to stress that, while rocky at first, their relationship became a beautiful friendship in time.
‘I think sometimes when people work together nonstop, do press nonstop for years and years on end, you’re just — you don’t appreciate the person that’s in front of you. You’re like, ‘Oh, you know, I’m exhausted and tired.’ And I think now, it’s such a nice sort of story because we’re such good friends now.’
Besides, Paul says he also had a lot to learn about himself and human interactions from experience: ‘It’s like the people that kind of maybe you don’t get along with in the beginning later surprise you, and I think a lot of my friendships are like that.’
