Paul Wesley Net Worth $3 Million

Paul Wesley is the second child of Tomasz and Agnieszka Wasilewski, and  spent his childhood traveling between Poland and the USA, so he speaks Polish and English. He attended both Marlboro High School and Christian Brothers Academy, and although he was very keen to be educated, he also spent free time in NYC theatre. He became very interested in developing an acting career, and so shifted to another school; in his junior year 1999, he debuted in the role of Max Nickerson in the TV series “Guiding Light” (1999-2001) and his net worth started rising. After matriculation, he became a student at Rutgers University, but only for one semester, because his acting career reached the professional level, so much so that after his first five years in the business, he decided to change his surname from Wasilewski to Wesley, because of the pronunciation.

In 2001, he appeared in the TV series “Wolf Lake” in the role of Luke Cates, and from that point on, his name became more and more noteworthy in the acting profession, and he appeared in more recognizable roles, such as Tommy Callahan in the TV series “Everwood” (2003-2004), and in “American Dreams” (2002-2005) as Tommy DeFelice. Furthermore, he guest-starred in “Law & Order: Criminal Intent” (2002), “Smallville” (2003), “CSI: Miami” (2004), and CSI: NY” (2005), which all helped increase his net worth.

In 2004, he made his big screen debut in the film “The Lust Run”, which was soon followed by a bigger role in the film “Roll Bounce” (2005). Wesley soon climbed up the ladder, and in 2006 he was cast as Trevor in the film adaption of the novel “Way of The Peaceful Warrior” – changed to “Peaceful Warrior” (2006) – directed by Victor Salva.

Wesley’s net worth started to increase dramatically when he was chosen for a lead role alongside Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev in the American supernatural TV drama series “The Vampire Diaries” (2009-2016) on The CW, based on the book of the same name by L. J. Smith. The same year he also featured as one of the leading cast members of the highly popular TV series “24”. To speak further of his successful career, Paul has shown his talents in films such as “Killer Movie” (2008), “Elsewhere” (2009), “Before I Disappear” (2014), and “Baytown Outlaws” (2012), among others, which have all added to his net worth.

His latest ventures in the entertainment industry include appearances in the films “Mother’s Day”, “Convergence”, and “Late Bloomer”, all 2016 releases.

For his accomplishments in the entertainment industry, he has won a number of awards, such as several Teen Choice Awards for his role in “The Vampire Diaries”.

3I wasn't some weird loner in school, but I definitely wasn't invited to any of the cool parties.
4I played ice hockey obsessively for 14 years of my life.
5I don't have television so I don't watch TV.
