The Disney Channel vet makes his first appearance on the ABC Family mystery’s October premiere — and his character’s already drowning in drama.
Love is in the air on Ravenswood! Disney Channel vet Luke Benward will make his way to the Pretty Little Liars spin-off as Olivia’s (Merritt Patterson) boyfriend Dillon, HollywoodLife.com has learned, and it sounds like he’s got his work cut out for him. Described as a “good looking, loyal and sweet small-town American teen,” Dillon will serve as a shoulder for Olivia to lean on as she deals with a “recent rough time.”
Prior to hopping aboard Ravenswood, Luke appeared in several movies, including Dear John and Disney Channel’s Minutemen. He’ll also appear in the upcoming Disney Channel original movie Cloud 9 as Will, a former snowboarding champion coming to terms with the end of his career on the slopes.
Dillon & Olivia’s Relationship On ‘Ravenswood’
The twin sister of brooding loner Luke (Brett Dier), Dillon’s girlfriend Olivia is described as a “former prom queen … struggling with a recent fall from grace.” She’s no longer the good girl she used to be, and will be in the midst of an identity crisis when we first meet her on the pilot.
Good thing she’ll have Dillon there to help her through it all!
