'Ravenswood' Casting Switch: Elizabeth Whitson Out; Merritt Patterson In as Olivia

There’s a big change in casting happening on Ravenswood.

Just a few weeks before production starts, THR reports that model Elizabeth Whitson is out of the show.

Elizabeth was set to play Olivia, a former prom queen who is struggling with a recent fall from grace. Olivia used to be carefree and effortlessly happy, but recent events have left her questioning what’s truly important.

Now, Merritt Patterson, who was supposed to portray her best friend Tess, is stepping in.

“As we dug deeper into the mythology of Ravenswood we decided to re-conceive the character of Olivia. Merritt Patterson seemed to be the best choice for the direction the character is now headed,” executive producers shared.

The Pretty Little Liars spinoff series also stars Tyler Blackburn, Brett Dier and Nicole Anderson.
