We were a little surprised when Toby (Keegan Allen) and Spencer (Troian Bellisario) became close since Spencer seemed to distrust him the most out of all her friends. However, like most things on Pretty Little Liars, there’s more to the story than you think.
Keegan told ClevverTV that Toby and Spencer’s relationship was influenced by his and Troian’s friendship. Keegan revealed, “Originally the writers saw us on set hanging out and were like, it would be really cool if they had a storyline like this. And I guess that’s where it came from.” Aww, we’re glad Troian and Keegan gave them the idea because Spencer and Toby are great together!
Although their characters had little in common, Troian told E! Online, “Keegan is one of my favorite people on set and we are just really good friends.” But being close pals doesn’t make it weird for them on-screen. Keegan said, “Working with Troian is really great, she’s so professional and it’s really cool.”
We wonder if any other real life friendships will inspire future PLL storylines. Keegan wants to act alongside his close pal Ian Harding (Ezra), so we can only hope so!
