When heartthrob Keegan Allen first appeared on ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars as the mysterious and enigmatic Toby Cavanaugh, it’s no lie that our little Figgie hearts beat a little bit faster. Actually a lot faster. And now that season three has begun–with plenty of Toby on the slate!–we have more questions than ever about the “Black Cat” of Rosewood. While Keegan, whose resume also includes stints on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and Nickleodeon’s Big Time Rush, isn’t giving away any pretty little spoilers, read on for a peak into his bookish tendencies…including his literary crush on a certain Russian aristocrat. (And be sure to tune in to Pretty Little Liars on on Tuesdays at 8 pm ET for more Keegan!)
What’s the book that you’re proudest of having finished?
I was very proud to have finished reading Dream Psychology by Sigmund Freud
Have you ever lied about having read a book to impress someone? (If yes, what was the book and why?)
I would just go get the book and read it. Sometimes I get books mixed up though, or worse–I start reading one–and then hop to another one that someone recommends. Then months later, I’ll finish the first one.
What’s the one book that you’ve sworn to read before you die?
Jane Eyre. It’s a heady read.
What are your five Desert Island Books?
Definitely a role-playing adventure book like Be an Interplanetary Spy
Chariots of the Gods (I bring that book with me everywhere)
A survivalist guide of some sort… haha
And The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
