A Pretty Little Liarsalum has landed a starring role in Lifetime’s sequel to their successful Flowers in the Attic television movie adaptation, which aired last month. Who’s the lucky actor in question?
According to E! Online, Lifetime has cast Wyatt Nash, aka Pretty Little Liars’ Nigel Wright, in the upcoming film, Petals on the Wind. If you’re having trouble remembering the deets of Wyatt’s character, don’t feel bad. Nigel wasn’t around for long. The blond hunk showed up on Jenna’s arm at Wilden’s funeral in the Season 4 premiere, but didn’t pop up again until Season 4, Episode 7 when Toby and Caleb confronted him about changing the air traffic log the night of the Thornhill Lodge Fire.
We’re hoping the new gig doesn’t keep him away from Rosewood for long. We still have a lot of questions about that night and his involvement — like, what does CeCe Drake have to do with all of this?
But we’re happy for Wyatt! He will be taking over the male lead role of Christopher Dollanganger from Mason Dye in the story of child neglect, torment, and incest. Petals in the Wind picks up 10 years following the end of Flowers in the Attic, the second installment in the five-part book series.
The main female role of Cathy Dollanganger, Chris’ sister, will be played by Rose McIver in the film, taken over from Kiernan Shipka. You may know Rose from her stint as Tinkerbell on Once Upon a Time. Returning from the first television film will be Ellen Burstyn, Heather Graham, and Dylan Bruce. Congratulations on the good news, Wyatt!Catch the next episode of Pretty Little Liars on Tuesday, February 25, 2014 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC Family.
