Last week, we were shocked to find out that Bianca Lawson (Maya St. Germain) had originally auditioned for the role of Hanna on Pretty Little Liars, and now, Brendan Robinson (Lucas Gottesman) has revealed that he almost wound up playing a completely different character from Lucas.

“I did audition for Mike originally!” Brendan admits, in an interview with the German fansite MyFanBase, referring to Aria’s (Lucy Hale) little brother. “They ended up wanting somebody a little younger for that role. A couple weeks later they asked me to come back and audition for Lucas. It was one of those instances where I read the script and instantly connected with the character.”

Wow. We can’t imagine anyone else playing the creepy Lucas, who we still don’t know whether or not to trust. And even though we won’t find out too much in the way of major spoilers from Lucas’s appearances on Pretty Dirty Secrets, Brendan promises that more will be revealed in the Season 3 winter season.

“When we first met [Lucas], he was very sweet and funny and awkward,” Brendan says. “It's like a 180 degree turn now that we are exploring the darker side of the character.”

But just how dark will Lucas get? Like many fans, we have a sneaking suspicion that Lucas is directly involved with the “A” team. But we’ll have to wait to find out!
