TEEN VOGUE YOUNG HOLLYWOOD SPOTLIGHT: KEEGAN ALLEN

Age: 25

Family Ties: It was pretty much guaranteed that this Pretty Little Liars star would have artistic aspirations: Keegan Allen’s mom is an Impressionist painter, and his dad is an actor. “Watching my father transform into characters became an obsession,” he says.

Lucky Break: Keegan’s PLL Character, Toby Cavanaugh, was supposed to appear in only six episodes, but the show’s devotees (more than 14 million on Facebook alone) decided otherwise. “Our fans speak out about what they want to see, and our writers listen,” he says.

The Franco Factor: After being cast in Palo Alto, Keegan scored roles in two upcoming films: Bukowski and The Sound and the Fury. “I’ve learned so much from him creatively,” Keegan says. And just like James, Keegan’s talent is multidimensional: He’s releasing a book of his photographs titled ‘Life.Love.Beauty’ as well as an indie album next year.
