Gregg Sulkin, who plays younger brother, Wesley to Ian Harding’s Ezra Fitz on Pretty Little Liars, will be making a reappearance in the second half of season 3, and Gregg revealed to Zap2It a little bit about the details, which includes “bunking at Ezra’s”.
“I come back to Rosewood. Wesley needs to stay in Rosewood for a couple of nights, that’s how he’s back,” says Sulkin. “We find out why he’s there and what he’s up to as the episode progresses.”
While Gregg doesn’t tell the exact reasons why Wesley is back in Rosewood, he does say that we will learn more about Ezra’s little bro.
“In the first few episodes, you can’t really tell whether he’s a good guy or a bad guy, which has obviously been a lot of fun to play because you keep the audience guessing,” says Sulkin. “But as more episodes come out, you’ll see why Wesley is the way he is and you’ll learn more about his past, then people will be able to judge whether he has ulterior motives or not.”
“Wesley has kind of lived in Ezra’s shadow and there has been some friction between them in the past, which we’ll learn about,” Sulkin teases.
And for those of you who’ve been wondering, is there an off-chance that Wesley could have a thing for Lucy Hale’s Aria? Based on Gregg’s take on it, it doesn’t sound like any episodes will go there anytime soon – but you can kind of tell Wesley thinks Ezra’s a lucky man.
“He definitely thinks that Aria is a great person. From the outside, Wesley is attracted to Aria,” says Sulkin. “As a person, he knows any guy would be lucky to have her. That’s Wesley’s opinion on the matter.”
What do you think, does Ezra’s brother, Wesley have ulterior motives, and what will be his role later this season?
