Keegan Allen is a man of many talents. He is a talented actor, who is currently trying his hand at stage performance in an Off Broadway production of Small Engine Repair (and it’s getting rave reviews!). But, he is also a photographer and poet. In fact, the Pretty Little Liars’ star will soon be releasing his very own book of poetry and photography!
“I love Pretty Little Liars, but I am an artist and I can’t be pinned down by one thing,” Keegan told W Magazine in a recent interview. The mag went on to reveal that Keegan would be releasing a book featuring his art (in both snapshot and poem form) sometime next year. “I do have other things I want to do while I’m this age.” As long as this is an “in addition to my gig as Toby Cavanaugh” deal and not an “instead of,” we’re on board. We can’t imagine a PLL without Pretty Eyes!
Though we haven’t had much chance to witness Keegan’s poetry thus far, his Instagram page gives us a glimpse at his talent for photography. Sometimes even using his PLL co-stars as models for his artistic snapshots. He took this tonal pic of co-star Troian Bellisario looking pensive on the PLL set, and captioned it “No destruction in the waking hour.” He’s also used studious Ashley Benson, boldly beautiful Tyler Blackburn, and smirking Ian Harding to quiet and beautiful effect. And, if you want to see what Keegan looks like in photographer mode, check out this Instagram of the Keegster himself with his Leica Monochrom camera.
