Paul Wesley, Chris Colfer, and More TV Actors Who Also Direct and Write
Paul Wesley. Stefan Salvatore's real-life doppelganger enjoyed his first time on the director's chair for The Vampire Diaries' "Resident Evil" episode—yes, the Stelena fanfic ep. Paul says the experience taught him "to be objective enough to say, 'I'm not going to do that take again because I didn't like how my hair was off in one angle.'"But he did veto Stefan's shirtless moment when he was making out with Elena in the kitchen. "I was like 'Guys, I think this should be romantic and not sexual,' and the writers fell for it. Suckers!"CONTINUE READING BELOWRecommended VideosADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Chris Colfer. With the movie Struck by Lightning, children's book series Land of Stories, and Disney pilot The Little Leftover Witch under his belt, it was only a matter of time until Glee asked Chris to write for the show. Chris co-wrote the second to the last episode of this season, where his character joins an assisted living production of Peter Pan. "Kurt teaches everyone (in a retirement home) how to be young again, very much like what Peter did to the Darlings."ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Matthew Morrison. Remember when Mr. Schue directed Glee’s black and white Christmas episode? As an actor, he felt iffy giving notes to his fellow actors, but of course he had to. "The first time I was going to give Jane (Sue Sylvester) some direction, she raised a finger and said, 'I just want to remind you that I have an Emmy Award and was just nominated for a People's Choice Award.' It was really funny."ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Neil Patrick Harris. Three years after he directed an episode of How I Met Your Mother—the one where Ted's students make fun of Robin's "but... umm" habit—NPH directed the finale of the sitcom The Goodwin Games. Barney Stinson would've given him the highest of fives!ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Jason Segel. Haaave you met Jason the writer? The guy you know as Marshall Eriksen on HIMYM also co-wrote comedy flicks The Five-Year Engagement, The Muppets, and Forgetting Sarah Marshall.
Jensen Ackles. The actor who plays Dean Winchester has directed a Supernatural episode almost every year since 2010. Next season, he hopes to direct another one. "Last year, I was busy being a new dad, so this year... well, actually I don't have more time on my hands, but I'm going to try to do it again."ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Misha Collins. If there's one thing that Supernatural's Castiel learned while directing, it's that being the butt of jokes has its pros and cons. Jensen Ackles (Dean) and Jared Padalecki (Sam) kept pranking him, throwing pies at his face! "But all in all, it was a remarkably good experience. The boys were so excited to, for example, throw pies at my face, that the time in between (pranks), they actually did their jobs very well—because they were trying to catch me off guard."

Hi everyone! I just want to share my first collaboration with my father. I converted two of my digital arts, Oneness and We Got Each Other's Back, into a vase and a bookend. I designed it and he made it into a reality. The Oneness Metal Vase is perfect for dried flowers and or artificial flowers. The We Got Each Other's Back Bookend is made from solid metal in which the cubes can be arranged to the user's liking. Both metal sculptures work as an accent piece that can liven up one's space.

Imagine you are holding a photograph. There, there you are. A 5-year-old you is being carried by her momma and papa while holding your rag dolls. That innocent, charming little girl is looking at you and said, "Where are you now?"
Life is filled with several U-turns and unexpected twists of events and during these times in which silver spoons are nowhere to be found: Our families ensure we still get and experience the best as we survive this pandemic. Here's my song, I wrote back 2 years ago entitled: "Won't Let You Cry" and take time to honor and appreciate our parents as they are the biggest front liners in our lives throughout the years.
If you're still single now, there are probably a a lot of questions running in your head. But being on your own for a long time helps you discover more about yourself. It's more than just freedom or independence. It's facing the world with so much courage. It's trying to make the most of your life without having to depend on someone. It's being happy on your own and loving yourself with all that you are.
We've been chasing love only to realize that it's not gonna work out that way. The right time will come that you will be blessed with the one you deserve. The one who also prayed to be with you. The one who will make you believe in love again. Let life surprise you. Hang in there.
The most thrilling and delightful moment of any school day is opening up your baon during breaks. There is always so much excitement in unveiling your homemade meal and snacks housed inside matching heat-insulating containers. Because preparing packed meals is an age-old tradition of showing parental love, loved ones pour effort into curating a nutritious meal accompanied by a selection of side dishes, desserts, and beverages daily; it reminds us that we are being taken care of, even from far away.
Baon plays a significant role in a Filipino childhood. Almost every Filipino child comes to school with baon made especially for them by their parents or household helpers. Even Filipinos in the labor force continue to bring baon for varying reasons: to save money, recycle leftovers, cater to personal taste, or attend to special needs. Nonetheless, eating your baon is a heart-warming experience that allows Filipinos to bring a piece of home along with them wherever they go.
Even other cultures practice making packed lunch. In Japan, mothers create bento--Japanese meals in partitioned boxes. Because of the popularity of bento, trends have emerged, such as the Kyaraben, or character-themed bento. Naturally, Japanese parents and students began competing for who had the cutest and tastiest bento, and this is similar to what I have witnessed in my own childhood. I remember seeing my classmates sharing their snacks and lunches. They would compare and boast about their parents' or yayas’ cooking. In my case, I never had the chance to join in the competition or indulge in homemade cooking. Up until this day, I have never brought any baon to school.
For a long time, I envied others. As trivial or petty as it may seem, not having baon became a problem for my grade school self. During that time, I had to sit in a separate cafeteria away from my friends because the kids who bought food were assigned to sit elsewhere. You could consider me spoiled, but I wanted to experience something most kids did. I had food at home, so what made it so hard to bring some with me to school?
Now that I am on my final year in high school I have come to realize the benefits of purchasing my own food. Since I spent on food everyday, I learned to budget my allowance at a young age. Over the years, I learned to practice self-control whenever I wanted to eat more greasy fries and drink sweetened beverages. I have tasted the strangest viands at the school cafeterias, and I have repeatedly satiated myself over my latest delicious discoveries. Despite the struggles, I am thankful that I have never had baon because of what I have learned. Not to mention, I never had to experience eating cold food.
Literally to begin with, I am writing with little shaky hands because this is the last time I went for a vacation like most of us must have and can’t plan any for now. The coronavirus outbreak has compelled us to stay at home for our safety and others in the vicinity.
I remember how I penned down my year 2020 to be the most remarkable year of my life in the hope of doing everything I desired for a long time and overcoming few obstacles. Whilst planning things ahead, I forgot to truly value all of things in the present.
I remember being chipper and grateful for my last summer vacation but now I feel I should’ve valued each and every moment. Considering the current gnarly situation, I want each one us to motivate ourselves to look for a positive side and to make the most of our time no matter the situation.
Make a promise to yourself that you won’t give up in these circumstances and reckon that there are a lot of good things for us in the store. We’ll have the most amazing season of our life post pandemic. Let’s accept for the change and become the change. Propagate love and only love.
