Pretty Little Liars TV Show: Ezra, Caleb, Toby, and Wren
Pretty Little Liars is one of my favorite shows on TV right now. Every episode leaves me on the edge of my seat... and I can’t wait to see what happens next! For those who don’t watch this mystery-thriller series, it takes place in a town called Rosewood, Pennsylvania following the lives of four teenaged girls named Emily Fields, Spencer Hastings, Hanna Marin, and Aria Montgomery. They lose a mutual friend in Allison DiLaurentis. She was the leader of the wolf pack...she knew everything about everyone, and she would use that knowledge to her advantage via blackmail. Many people feared her until the day she disappeared and passed away. A year later, someone using the pen name “A,” harassed the four girls through text messages. “A” threatened to expose the girls’ darkest secrets if they didn’t follow through with “A’s” orders. In the second season, Hanna’s best friend Mona was revealed as “A.” She wasn’t working alone, however. The third season of Pretty Little Liars premiered just a few weeks ago...the four girls are receiving harassing text messages again from “A #2”. Who is Mona working with or working for? Since Mona is locked up in a nut house, who else could be sending those text messages?
That was my little summary of this show so far. :) However, I want to dedicate this hub to four male characters from Pretty Little Liars... just Ezra, Caleb, Toby, and Wren. They are hunky men, so I want to dedicate this entire hub to the guys. :D I will write another hub for the rest of the male characters and a separate hub about the four girls in the future.
Ezra Fitz (Ian Harding’s character) used to be an Honors English Teacher at Rosewood High School. He fell in love with one of his students, Aria. They originally met at a cafe/hub before the start of the semester. The thing is... he thought Aria was 26 years old. Aria didn’t tell him she’s a student at Rosewood High, and Ezra didn’t tell Aria he’s a teacher at Rosewood High. When Ezra walked into his English class on the first day of school, he was shocked to see Aria sitting in a student chair. Aria was just as shocked to see Ezra as her teacher. Aria immediately tried to transfer to another English teacher’s class, but her academic counselors wouldn’t allow her to. They continued dating each other, however. Their relationship got even more rocky when Aria’s mother became a teacher at Rosewood High because “A” threatened to tell her mother about their relationship. Aria’s parents weren’t aware that their daughter was having intimate relations with her teacher until late into the second season. Of course, her parents were infuriated when they found out, but Aria continued to see Ezra thereafter.
Ian Harding (character Ezra) is a great looking guy. Really cute... But he’s just not my type. There’s just something about him that makes me look at him like a ‘businessman’ type of guy. Though I must say, his eyes are so pretty. I find Caleb and Wren more attractive though. That’s just my opinion. :) To each, his/her own. But to all you Ian/Ezra fans out there, you have one less girl to compete with. LOL ... just a joke.
Caleb Rivers (Tyler Blackburn’s character) is a transfer student at Rosewood High School, and is currently Hanna’s boyfriend. Caleb’s mother gave him up at age 5, leaving him to grow up in foster homes. When he met Hanna in high school, Hanna invited Caleb to live in her house for a few months so he would be able to get back on his feet. Caleb eventually moved out of Hanna’s home and moved into Lucas’ home. Lucas is a fellow classmate at Rosewood High...but in Season 3, it is revealed that Caleb moved out of Lucas' home as well. Before he met Hanna, Caleb had a negative outlook on life as he used to work for car thieves as a computer hacker and he used to hack phones for money. Now that he’s been dating Hanna for about two years, he has given up all of the dangerous activities. He’s a regular schoolboy now.
Man, is Tyler Blackburn (character Caleb) sexy or what? Keep in mind that most of the male actors on this show are in their mid-to-late twenties (albeit them playing the roles of teenaged characters). I tend to sway back and forth between Tyler and Julian (character Wren). In some episodes, I can’t stop staring at Tyler... in other episodes I can’t stop looking at Julian! :) I’m pretty sure those two are my favorite guys in this show. Tyler’s hair is not too long, not too short, but medium-length. I don’t usually like medium to long-length hair on men, but I just cannot picture Tyler with short hair. I think he’s just my type. Broad shoulders, good sense of fashion, sexy speaking voice, smart, very good looking. Yup yup. He’s good for me!
Toby Cavanaugh (Keegan Allen’s character) is Jenna’s stepbrother and a student at Rosewood High School. Jenna is one of the main antagonists in Pretty Little Liars. More about that in another hub. Toby is currently dating Spencer. Toby’s character has really evolved throughout the course of three seasons because he’s gone from the creepy, stalker-ish, loner guy to the hot, popular, sensitive guy that everyone wants to be in a relationship with. Allison DiLaurentis used to believe Toby spied on her from his window. Toby used to live in the house beside Allison’s. Toby also has a tattoo commemorating the day (September 1) he ended his relationship with his stepsister, Jenna.
Keegan Allen (character Toby) has an 8-pack to die for. In the first season, I didn’t find him attractive or appealing to watch on TV. I don’t know if it’s his change in hair style, his enormous change in muscular tone, or his smoldering eyes... whatever it is, he’s hot now! Maybe Keegan is just now starting to grow into his looks. But this man has been seriously working on his abs. Gosh. Perfect abs. Perfect. Can’t wait to see more of Keegan in the later episodes!
Wren Kim (Julian Morris’ character) is Melissa’s ex-fiance and currently a doctor. Melissa is Spencer’s older sister. One of the reasons Wren and Melissa broke off their engagement was because Wren was actually in love with Spencer. Wren would kiss Spencer every chance he got. Spencer was also obviously attracted to Wren as well. They had this secret affair going on... and Spencer even broke up with Toby once before because "A" threatened to hurt Toby. After her breakup with Toby, she developed another ‘thing’ with Wren. Wren’s main job is a doctor at a hospital, but he also works at a psychiatric ward (Mona’s nut house) as a side job.
Julian Morris (character Wren) has a perfect London accent. Sigh. I love all things British even though I was born and raised in the U.S. I have never been to the U.K.... one of my dreams is to visit the U.K. someday. Side Note: I'm obsessed with Doctor Who and Take That. :D Julian still has a boyish charm about him even though he is almost thirty years old. He’s just so cute and adorable. I love him! Just to reiterate, Julian Morris and Tyler Blackburn are my favorite men on Pretty Little Liars. :)
