Tyler Blackburn (Caleb Rivers) and Ashley Benson (Hanna Marin) share some amazing on-screen romantic chemistry both on Pretty Little Liars and, presumably, on Ravenswood when Ash makes her debut appearance in next week’s episode. In real life, they’re just really good friends, but according to Tyler, he would totally date this bestie!
When asked by J-14.com if he could ever see himself dating Ash, Tyler said: "I mean, sure, yeah. We are very close and we tend to do a lot of romantic scenes and things like that — just really romantic things on Pretty Little Liars. It definitely rubs off on you a little bit."
We’ve definitely witnessed this before. In the weeks before Tyler’s departure for Ravenswood, Ash and Ty enjoyed a night out on the town that ended with a kiss! Tyler dubbed it a “French friendship” when he posted the photo of the two locking lips at the end of the night. Ash re-posted the pic with the caption, "Besties. Sad he's leaving me :(."
Tyler also told J-14.com that he and Ashley are quite similar to their characters, especially in how they relate to one another: "I think we definitely have some similarities for sure," Tyler said. "We get along well and we laugh a lot. We're fun. I think Caleb and Hanna have been through a lot, but they, at the core, just really enjoy each other. We're similar in that way."
Should we be breaking out the bubbly? Probably not, considering Ashley and Tyler have ever only been besties and now live on opposite ends of the country (Ravenswood films in New Orleans and PLL in Los Angeles). But you have to admit, these two are pretty great together — platonically off-screen and romantically on-screen!
