Janel Parrish Has the “Best Boyfriend Ever” — Who Is Payson Lewis?

Are you ready for an overdose of adorable? Because we’re about to introduce you to Pretty Little Liars star Janel Parrish’s (Mona Vanderwaal) boyfriend, Payson Lewis. Or, as Janel refers to him, the “best boyfriend ever.”

So I have the BEST boyfriend ever! Just got tickets to see @jtimberlake in concert for my birthday! @paysonlewis I'm keeping you,” Janel tweeted October 28. The previous day, Payson Instagrammed a photo of the couple relaxing in Malibu, along with this tag: “Good start to @janellyp birthday week.” Birthday week? Yeah, we’d say he’s a keeper.

Payson is a blond-haired, bespectacled cutie with talent to burn. He’s appeared as a guest star on How I Met Your Mother, Love Bites, and Rules of Engagement, often making use of his vocal skills. He’s also appeared as himself as the lead singer in his a cappella group, The SoCals, in the reality singing competition, The Sing-Off.

Basically, he and Janel have a lot in common. She started her acting career in musical theater in her native state of Hawaii when she was cast as “Young Cosette” in the National Touring Company production of Les Miserables. Match made in heaven? We think so!

Want to see more of Payson? Check out his four-minute demo reel, including many of the aforementioned appearances. Maybe we can find a spot for Payson in the PLL musical episode we’ve been secretly planning…
