'The Fosters': Elliot Fletcher Talks Aaron & Callie's Budding Romance

Elliot Fletcher is spilling on what fans can expect to go down between his character, Aaron, and Maia Mitchell‘s character, Callie, in the upcoming episode of The Fosters.

“In this next episode we definitely do see Aaron and Callie get a lot closer and get a lot more comfortable with each other, not only physically but emotionally, and I think that’s great,” the actor told Variety.

“There are a lot of scenes where we get closer and then we fight, or we make up, and then we fight again,” he continued. “So it was really fun to film just a beautiful hike where Aaron and Callie were looking at each other and getting to know one another on a separate level from everyone else.”

“It is very weird to me that everyone in the show, especially Callie, says, ‘You’re so confident in who you are’ because I think Aaron does struggle quite a bit,” Elliot added. “Maybe he just doesn’t show it as much. There are ways that Callie helps him already, maybe without her even knowing it. Maybe we do see more of Aaron helping Callie, but I think Callie helping Aaron is more internal.”

Elliot also shared more of his thoughts about about much he differs from his character when it comes to hate speech. Click inside to hear what he had to say…

“When I got the script for that episode, it did take me aback a little bit, I won’t lie,” Elliot said about the episode in which Aaron tells Callie he doesn’t agree with her protesting a conservative speaker because he believes all free speech is OK, including hate speech. “I was surprised that Aaron felt that way, but I did as much work as I could internally with the character to develop why he felt that way and what had happened in his past to make him feel like it’s always good to hear from both sides.”

“With what’s going with Trump right now and Charlottesville, I wanted to make it very clear that I do not and will not stand for that kind of completely violent, ignorant, and discriminatory hate speech,” Elliot explained. “It doesn’t do anything except create more violence and create more hatred.”

The Fosters airs on Freeform Tuesdays at 8pm.
