Paul Wesley is best known to “The Vampire Diaries” fans as vampire Stefan Salvatore.

However, Wesley has since moved on to “Star Trek: Strange New Worlds.”

Earlier this year, it was announced he’d play a young Captain Kirk in season 2.

However, he shocked fans when he made his debut in the season 1 finale this week.

Wesley told EW that it’s “incredibly daunting” to play the legendary Captain Kirk.

“It's arguably the most iconic fictional character,” he added.

He said even “a hundred” adjectives “would still not describe” what it feels like to play the role.

Esquire reported that season 2 is currently filming in Toronto.

New episodes aren’t expected to be released until sometime in 2023.
