Paul Wesley’s fan favorite character, Stefan Salvatore, on The Vampire Diaries may have lived on an all-animal diet for some time, but in real life, the actor is a huge supporter of animal rights.
The CW star has partnered with The Humane Society of the United States (The HSUS) to urge pork producers to stop using inhumane gestation crates. And for his work in animal protection, The HSUS will honor Wesley with the Humane Generation Award at their 60th Anniversary Benefit Gala on Saturday, March 29. But still, there’s more work to be done and Wesley is auctioning a personalized outgoing voicemail message for a charitable fan, with all proceeds going to the organization.
“As an actor, you kind of do all these sort of self-sort-of-indulgent promotional things and I started noticing that I had developed quite a following on Twitter and all over the world, and I kind of fell naturally into it,” Wesley explains to E! News of how he got involved with The HSUS. “I wanted to do something charitable just to feel better about myself when I wake up in the morning, and the Humane Society came naturally to me. I wanted it to be something that I was inspired by, and one of the things that really enrages me is factory farming.”

In this week’s episode of The Vampire Diaries, almost everyone will some form of rescue. The Travelers are holding Stefan captive for his blood. To free Stefan, Caroline and Enzo go off to Atlanta to find and kill Stefan’s doppelganger. Jeremy strikes a deal with a surprising pair of allies. Damon and Elena deal with the complexity of their relationship. A new threat to Mystic Falls is revealed.
The episode opens with Stefan’s doppelganger (Paul Wesley) as a paramedic wheeling into the Atlanta Metro Hospital, an female patient. He asks her what her name is, then says his name is Tom and she’s going to be all right. We see Sloan (Caitlin McHugh) in a painful mind link with Stefan, who is relating what he sees. Sloan says she heard him say his name was Tom Avery. Back at the hospital, Tom (Paul Wesley) tells the doctor that the patient needs a 10 gauge needle or she won’t make it to the operating table. The doctor says he’ll take it from there, but Tom inserts the needle himself. Back to Sloan who asks Stefan to tell her what he’s seeing. He sees the doctor calling Tom a piece of work, adding that they must have broke the mold when they made him. Stefan tells Sloan that Tom is at the Atlanta Metropolitan Hospital. She breaks the mind link and says tells Stefan his friends can now go kill him. Stefan passes out.
