‘Finding Carter’ is about to get hot, hot, hot. With Jackson Rathbone joining the cast this season, the EP previews his risqué role — and the pretty crazy secret that Carter keeps from his character.
Sorry Crash fans, it looks like Carter has her eyes on someone else — and he’s much older. Finding Carter executive producer Emily Whitesell just chatted with HollywoodLife.com to preview the “steamy” romance that’s coming between Carter (Kathryn Prescott) and the new guy in town, Jared (Jackson Rathbone).
“Carters love life is gonna get very complicated this season. She’s been in love with Crash (Caleb Ruminer), but he’s going off to live his own life and she’s trying to find her own and pushing herself ahead, in terms of who she is and what she wants,” Emily explained ahead of the Oct. 6 return of Finding Carter.
With that, Carter and Crash decide to go on a break and she heads to work at a bar. Part of finding out who she is includes falling for the bar owner, Jared.
“He’s older, sexy, and he has great advice — he is the guy who has done exactly what she’s looking for: he’s figured out who he is, and he owns this fantastic bar and it’s such a joy for her to be there every day,” Emily explained to us about Jackson’s character. “She feels really free, like she’s really growing up, and he’s a BIG part of that.”
‘There’s A Big Glitch’ Coming
As for their relationship, Carter doesn’t tell Jared that she’s not even 18 year, while he’s 25. “When he finds that out, there’s big glitch for a moment,” Emily says. “But they find their way around it.”
Naturally we had to know what we could expect from their romance. “It’ll be steamy — you don’t have Jackson Rathbone and not get steamy.” As if we weren’t excited enough already. Season 2B begins on MTV on Oct. 6 at 10 p.m. ET. Are you into the new romance?
