Pretty Little Liars fans are going crazy waiting for the Season 4 premier on June 11th. Seriously, waiting three months to find out what the liars found in Wilden’s trunk is excruciating! Luckily, the Pretty Little Liars cast and writers feel our pain, and supply us with daily spoilers, clues, photos, and quotes to keep us sane until June 11th. For example, a recent PLL spoiler revealed that there was a new cop in town. There are no ugly men in Rosewood, except for on the inside, so no one was shocked when they found out the new cop would be played by Sean Faris.
Sean Faris, a former model, began acting in 2001, when he landed several minor parts in television shows like Undressed, Even Stevens, Smallville, One Tree Hill, and Boston Public. His first major role was in 2004 when he landed the part of “Steve,” Alexa Vega’s crush, in the movie Sleepover. After Faris gained major exposure in Sleepover he landed major parts in the TV shows Life As We Know It and Reunion. In 2008 he starred in two movies. He played the part of Jake Tyler in Never Back Down and the role of bad boy Rick Penning in Forever Strong. Since then he has also appeared in The King of Fighters, Freerunner, Christmas With Holly, Stash House, Lost For Words, and Pawn.
Faris will be playing the role of a Pennsylvania State Police Officer, Gabriel Holbrook, who is new in Rosewood. It’s safe to assume the state police are intervening in Rosewood’s investigations since Detective Wilden has accumulated four unsolved murder cases since the show began. In a recent interview about his new role on Pretty Little Liars, Sean Faris stated, “He’s a hard worker, he’s very focused, he’s to the point, but he’s also surrounded by a group of suspects who are all beautiful young women, so we’ll see how he stands the test.” Is that a hint that he might be hooking up with one of the girls on the show? Hanna, Emily, and Spencer are all in relationships. However, in the Season 3 finale of Pretty Little Liars ‘a dAngerous gAme’ Aria and her former teacher Ezra Fitz did break up. Maybe Aria Montgomery will catch the eye of Sean Faris’s character Detective Holbrook? However in the interview Sean Faris also mentioned his new co-star, another police officer, who is also another new addition to the Pretty Little Liars cast. Roma Maffia will be playing the part of Linda Tanner, Detective Holbrook’s partner. Linda probably won’t be too fond of the idea of her partner fraternizing with the under-age murder suspects.
Pretty Little Liars will return to ABC Family on Tuesday June 11th at 8:00 PM.
