“The Vampire Diaries” lead Paul Wesley enjoys the pace of the relationship between his character, Stefan, and fellow vampire Caroline (Candice Accola).

“What I love about the Stefan and Caroline relationship is that it’s so slow,” Wesley told TheWrap’s Rebecca Rosenberg in the latest episode of “Drinking With the Stars.” “It’s glacial, like molasses, like a snail.”
