The 24-year-old actor opens up to the mag about skeletons, flirting and believing that Ezra and Aria (Lucy Hale) are truly soulmates. Check it:
On Ezra and Aria’s connection: “On an emotional story level, it just kind of happens to be the worst of circumstancesâ€”kind of the perfect storm. There’s an age difference. Yes, but nobody would frown upon a 23-year-old dating a 30-year-old. Maybe. I don’t think my parents would. It depends on the person. The problem is the six- or seven-year difference between them, and I’m her teacher. It’s not really smiled upon. I really think they’re soulmates at the fullest extent. So they’re giving it a go, even with possible jail time.”
On Ezra’s skeletons: “In the coming episodes, things get very colorful. I think you know a little bit about Ezra, but everything is focused on the girls, as it should be. I think within the coming episodes and within season 2, you get to see more of Ezra’s past and skeletons in his closet. He’s got some major skeletons showing up back there.”
On how he flirted his way to landing the role: “I just kind of flirted with everybody that I came across. They were like, ‘You have the part.’ I said, ‘Wait a minute, okay… I think you’re making a mistake.’ They decided that they weren’t, and now I’m here. It was a really interesting audition process. It was so out of the blue and so surreal.”
