Paul Wesley, Nina Dobrev
Although The Vampire Diaries star Paul Wesley has wanted to direct an episode for a very long time, he says it took him three seasons to summon the courage to ask.
"I decided I wanted to direct when I saw my first Stanley Kubrick film, so that was a very long time ago, but I knew I wanted to direct an episode of The Vampire Diaries from the minute I got one of the lead roles," Wesley tells TVGuide.com. "I just also knew it was presumptuous to ask any sooner than Season 4, so I asked at the beginning of Season 4 and I got to do it in Season 5."

At age 16, Malaya Watson is American Idol's second youngest finalist of all time (behind Lauren Alaina). And the Season 13 contestant — who made it to the Top 8 before being eliminated last Thursday — says she strongly considered waiting a couple of years to audition.
"My mom called me and she's like, 'Oh, American Idol's coming,'" Watson, who was 15 when she initially auditioned, tells TVGuide.com. "I was telling her, I want to wait until I'm 17 or 18 rather than jump out and do something like this. But I thought about it, and you never know when this opportunity's going to come again, so you might as well take it and run with it. I didn't imagine to make it this far."
