kids articles

Actor Keegan Allen is most recognizable as Toby Cavanagh, the boy next door neighbour with a few secrets of his own from ABC’s hit teen mystery show Pretty Little Liars, but the 22-year-old heart throb got his start behind-the-scenes. Find out more about Keegan in his Kidzworld Bio!

It Runs in the Family

Keegan Allen was born and raised in California, and it’s safe to say that talent runs in the family. His mother is an artist and his father is an off-Broadway theater actor. Surrounded by talented people as akid, Keegan couldn’t help but become interested in the industry himself.

Camera Shy

During high school and college Keegan was originally focused on learning the art of cinematography, video production and editing and working behind the scenes on set, although he also harbored a love of performing himself. He got his first on screen role at just 13 years old in a non speaking role for Animal Planet.

Big Time and Toby

Keegan landed small roles on TV on Big Time Rush (as a “handsome guy”) as well as a role on an episode of CSI, but his big break came when he won the role of Toby Cavanagh on Pretty Little Liars! Toby is the quiet boy-next-door with a secret who quickly morphs into the love interest of Spencer Hastings, played by Troian Bellisario.

Rumor Has It...

Keegan and his PLL co star Ashley Benson have been spotted hanging out together off set quite a bit, sparking rumors that the two might be dating (although both parties seem to be denying it...for now!)
