Pretty Little Liars' bad boy Tyler Blackburn is more than just a talented actor, he's also a super sweet guy! In fact, he's the newest celebrity to team up with stars like Demi Lovato and Joe Jonas for this year's Acuvue 1-Day Contest, in hopes of encouraging teens around the world to reach for their dreams! The best part? You can enter to win the chance to meet and be mentored by him! In honor of his new campaign, J-14 caught up with Tyler for a chat about how you can enter the Acuvue 1-Day contest, and of course to dish all about what's to come on PLL, including the scoop on "A" and the future of Caleb and Hanna!
J-14: What's the Acuvue 1-Day Contest all about?
Tyler Blackburn: It's a really great opportunity to have teens and young adults submit videos of themselves explaining what they want to do with their lives, what their dream is, and what their plan is on how to get there. Basically, we're making dreams come true -- it's as simple as that!
J-14: Sounds pretty amazing. What made you want to be a part of this campaign?
Tyler: I love the idea that I'm going to be able to help somebody feel like their future can be anything they want it to be! I was a dreamer growing up and that's what helped me to get me to where I am today. It's so important to keep those dreams alive.
J-14: "A" was just revealed on Pretty Little Liars! What did you think about all of that?
Tyler: I only learned who it was the day before we started filming because they kept it very secretive! I was surprised! I didn't really know how it was going to go. It definitely leaves you hanging a little bit though, because Mona has been working with somebody else. While certain questions are answered, more questions arise. It's not over yet -- I think it's just beginning!
J-14: Caleb and Hanna are an adorable couple! What's coming up for them?
Tyler: Season 3 picks up five months after season 2 left off, so a lot has changed. Caleb and Hanna are going strong, but Caleb's also very cautious with Hanna because she's been through a lot. He wants to help, but he can't help but feel like she's keeping stuff from him. There's going to be some ups and downs for them, but he's trying to stick by her side. I think they're a great couple, but I think it would be kind of fun to play something other than, "I love you, baby."
J-14: We have to ask: Can you give us any spoilers of what we can expect in Season 3?
Tyler: I feel like the girls should have learned many lessons throughout the last couple of seasons that they don't seem to be. There is definitely some intense secrets and drama!
Want to know how you can be the lucky fan to be mentored by Tyler? All you have to do is upload a thirty to sixty second video showing or telling what you hope to achieve one day, how you find the confidence to pursue their dreams, and why you should be chosen. Enter now through June 7th on Acuvue's YouTube page.
