Paul heeft een rol in de nieuwe mini-serie ‘Flowers in the Attic: The Origin’ die gemaakt zal worden voor de Amerikaanse zender Lifetime. De serie is gebaseerd op het boek Garden of Shadowsvan schrijfer Andrew Neiderman, Paul zal de rol van John Atmos. Het is nog niet bekend wanneer de serie precies te zien zal zijn, maar wel dat er 4 afleveringen komen.

The Vampire Diaries star Paul Wesley has signed on for prequel miniseries Flowers in the Attic: The Origin.

The actor, who is best known for playing bloodsucker Stefan Salvatore on the long-running supernatural show, is set to share the screen with The White Queen’s Max Irons and Star Trek: Voyager’s Kate Mulgrew in the star-studded drama, which takes place before the events of V. C. Andrews’ gothic novel.

Based on Andrew Neiderman’s literary follow-up Garden of Shadows, the four-episode outing follows Olivia Winfield (Gold Digger’s Jemima Rooper), a headstrong young woman who finds herself falling for one of the nation’s most eligible bachelors Malcolm Foxworth (Irons).

Their romance takes an unexpected turn, though, when she becomes the mistress of Malcolm’s formidable estate, and discovers dark secrets linked to her new partner’s past.

In a desperate attempt to keep those around her safe, Olivia is forced to become the wickedest version of herself, which eventually paves way for her inevitable, notorious decision to lock her grandchildren in the loft.

Wesley will play Olivia’s cousin John Atmos, while additional cast members include Harry Hamlin (Mad Men), Alana Boden (Alex Rider), Hannah Dodd (Harlots), T’Shan Williams (The Color Purple), Callum Kerry (Four Weddings and a Funeral) and Frasier’s Kelsey Grammer. The latter plays Malcolm’s respected father Garland Foxworth.

Ian en Paul zijn de afgelopen dagen druk bezig geweest met de promotie van hun Bourbonmerk ‘Brother’s Bond’. Deze is sinds enkele weken geleidelijk aan in meer Amerikaanse staten verkrijgbaar en hiervoor reiste ze o.a. af naar Austin om enkele winkels en fans te bezoeken die het merk nu verkopen. In enkele instagramstories geven ze aan binnenkort ook internationaal verkijgbaar te zijn, maar vooralsnog is daar geen nieuws over.

Ian en Paul hebben een interview gehad met Forbes om hun Bourbonmerk ‘Brother’s Bond’ te promomten, deze verschint officieel op 1 mei.

According to Bacardi Limited’s annual trends report, 70 percent of North American consumers sought out sustainable or eco-friendly spirits brands at the end of 2020. While the upward trend of sustainable demand offers a positive shift in the market for now, all too often trends are just that—a fleeting moment. For Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley, actors, directors, and activists, however, they intend to surpass sustainability with the debut of their bourbon, Brother’s Bond, by supporting regenerative agriculture.

“Building communities around farming and regenerative agriculture is the way to the future,” Somerhalder told Forbes. He explained that in the next decade there’s an opportunity for a great change in agricultural practices as the existing generation passes control to a younger (and by proxy, more progressive-thinking) generation. “We see that as a very powerful and positive thing,” he said. “The companies that are going to create the largest amount of stewardship are the companies with the triple bottom line: people, plant, profit.”

According to a 2020 journal published by MDPI, in comparison to the short-range concepts of sustainability, regenerative practices—including regenerative farming—reflect a holistic world view and aim for thriving living systems, where whole-system health and wellbeing increase continually. The journal furthers Somerhalder’s narrative and adds, “although the advancement of regenerative practices will require fundamental shifts supported by more awareness and education, theoretical and practical development, leadership, empowering communities, and integrating spirituality,” we should focus on regenerative sustainability because it addresses the “root causes of (un)sustainability.”

“Agriculture contributes more to climate change than all the cars on the road and all the planes in the sky, so that is where we make our stand,” Somerhalder emphasized.

The concept of Brother’s Bond originated during the early days of “The Vampire Diaries”—The CW hit series that aired from 2009 to 2017—where Wesley and Somerhalder first met and enacted the roles of the Salvatore brothers. Though Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore) and Wesley (Stefan Salvatore) shared many drams of bourbon on set, they revealed that the brown liquid consumed during the episodes was actually iced tea—so by the end of the day, they were ready for the real deal. Wesley shared, “Not to sound cheesy, but we would bond over bourbon after shooting.”

After 11 years, eight seasons and 171 episodes, Wesley and Somerhalder nurtured a brotherhood offset as conversations over their daily drink spanned from climate change and philanthropy to creating their own bourbon. They said that when filming ended, it was time to combine these recurring topics into a brand that extended beyond the show.

“We’re aware that although [“The Vampire Diaries”] was popular, it’s still finite,” said Wesley. “We want Brother’s Bond to transcend past TV and past our bond to create a community.”

“This has been 10 years in the making,” Ian Somerhalder tells PEOPLE of the craft bourbon he created with Paul Wesley, Brother’s Bond

Though it’s been four years since Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley last shared the screen as brothers Damon and Stefan Salvatore on The CW drama The Vampire Diaries, the real-life best friends haven’t missed a beat while creating and developing their joint passion project: bourbon.

In this week’s issue of PEOPLE, the duo open about their latest venture, their friendship throughout the years, and whether or not there’s a possibility of reprising their Vampire Diaries roles in the future.

“This has been 10 years in the making,” Somerhalder, 42, says of their craft bourbon Brother’s Bond, which will be available in stores and online May 1. “Our soul is in this bottle.”
