Ravenswood Casting: Real-life Couple to Play Lovers on the Show!
Real-life love is in the air in Ravenswood! TV Line reports that Pretty Little Liarssupernatural spin-off has cast husband-and-wife actors Henry Simmons (NYPD Blue) and Sophina Brown (Numbers). Who will the couple be playing?
Henry and Sophina will be filling the recurring roles of Simon and Terry Beaumont, the parents of Ravenswood main cast member Remy (Britne Oldford). According to TV Line, Simon runs the local newspaper, and is “distrustful of out-of-towners.” (Watch out, Caleb!) As for Terry, she is recently returned home from military service, but is struggling with a nasty case of survivor’s guilt. These two sound like an interesting couple, and we can only imagine they will bring their real-life chemistry to the roles. We’re pleased to see Ravenswood seems to be following the PLL formula of creating complex, recurring parental characters for its teenaged leads.
We’re guessing Simon and Terry will spend the most time interacting with their daughter, Remy. Remy is one of the five strangers brought together by the mysterious generations-long curse in Ravenswood. She is described as someone “who can fit anywhere but doesn’t belong to any one crowd. Inquisitive and determined, she won’t stop looking for the truth until she finds it.” We wonder if Remy’s parents will be a help on this quest for the truth, or a hindrance? Our money’s on the latter.
