It's love! Five months after former Vampire Diaries costars Paul Wesley and Phoebe Tonkin began dating, the TV stars rang in the New Year together in Sydney, Australia. The press-shy pair posed with actor Nathaniel Buzolic, who played Kol Mikaelson on the supernatural CW hit. The native Aussie shared the picture via Instagram and wrote, "Not the only thing dangerous at the beach..."
Neither Wesley, 31, nor Tonkin, 24, have spoken publicly about their relationship. The actor had already broken up with wife Torrey DeVitto before he began dating The Originals star in July 2013. "Their split was not yet public," a source told E! News of former spouses in September.
The stars made no mention of each other via their respective social media accounts while Down Under. "Happy New Year. Right to the point," Wesley tweeted on Wednesday, Jan. 1. Tonkin, meanwhile, balanced salad tongs and a spoon on her face and captured the moment on Instagram. "Happy New Year, may you all achieve your goals and dreams, like I did not 10 minutes ago," the TV star joked.
Wesley and Tonkin aren't the only CW stars kicking off the New Year in Sydney: The Vampire Diaries' leading lady, Nina Dobrev, was photographed sharing a drink and a laugh with Buzolic and actor Stephen Dorff at Barrio Chino restaurant on Thursday, Jan. 2.
