With Ashley Marin (Laura Leighton) apparently set to be Rosewood No. 1 Hated Parent in Season 4, it seems like a good time for Daddy Marin to make a return. And, return he does! Check out this behind-the-scenes Keek vid of Ashley Benson (Hanna) goofing off with her on-screen dad, Roark Critchlow (Tom Marin).
The video, entitled “Spending quality time with tv dad,” shows Ash and Roark doing their best ballerina impressions, pirouettes and all. Ash jokes, “When dad comes to town, all we do is do ballet moves.” Maybe a subtle reference to the time Tom caught Hanna dancing around the kitchen? Because it can’t be a reference to the father/daughter dance Hanna had to go to alone.
We just hope Hanna and Tom are getting along just as swimmingly as the actors who play them. Hanna and her dad have not always had the best relationship. Tom is a less-than-attentive father and since he re-married and got an evil stepdaughter in the process, things have been especially shaky (no thanks to “A”).
We wonder if Tom’s return will have anything to do with Ashley Marin’s absence? Did she get that job in New York and leave Hanna behind? Could this be the reason we are supposedly going to hate Hanna’s mom in Season 4? We hope not. Ashley has always been such a kickass mom, there for her daughter whenever she needs her (which, with “A” around, is always). We’re not sure how Hanna would deal with the quasi-abandonment, especially with another one in her near future...
What do you think Tom Marin is doing back in town? Do you think he and Hanna will be getting along better this time? Let us know in the comments below!
