When Caleb Lane’s character Rhys Matthews was introduced on Pretty Little Liars, everyone that saw him immediately assumed he’s a DiLaurentis, or even Charles himself. While he’s probably NOT Charles, Lane says we will learn more about Rhys and his motivations in next week’s mid-season finale.
Rhys Matthews is an employee for the Carissimi Group, a company that has some mystery surrounding it and its funding. He also happens to look like Ali and Jason’s parents spit him out, which is either some great casting on A’s part, or there’s more to the story.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, who spoke with Lane about his role, “more will soon be revealed about Rhys’ connection to Ali’s dad, which will be told in an “expository [way] through the other characters.””
Lane also admitted that when the PLL moms ran into him in the DiLaurentis house, he wasn’t there with the purest of intentions. “Rhys had some questions for Mr. DiLaurentis, and he doesn’t actually come around,” Lane said. “I think [Rhys] wanted to find Mr. DiLaurentis and probably kidnap him.”
Read what else he had to say about working on the series and Charles’ identity over at The Hollywood Reporter, and while you’re trying to rack your brain for clues about Charles’ identity, make sure to take a little time to appreciate the fashion the show offers as well.
The mid-season finale of Pretty Little Liars airs next Tuesday at 8pm on ABC Family.
