On Pretty Little Liars, the girls have to deal with a crazed stalker — and now The Secret World of Alex Mack star Larisa Oleynik, who also plays Ezra's (Ian Harding) ex Maggie, has been forced to take out a restraining order against a real life stalker! He’s reportedly so obsessed with her, he changed his name.
TMZ reports that, according to the paperwork she filed, Larisa began receiving harassing phone calls from a man named Josh Hathaway in July 2012. He called her mother's house and even left gifts — from books to love letters.
Most shockingly, Josh left Larisa a voice message telling her that he changed his last name to Oleynik back in 2010. Why? To "build a relationship" with her.
We don't blame Larisa for filing a restraining order. Fortunately, the judge agreed that this man could be a threat, and ordered Josh to cut contact and stay at least 100 yards away from Larissa until January 2016.
We're just glad she's safe!
