Avan Jogia is not a bad looking guy, even if he’s currently playing a really bad boy on ABC Family’s new series “Twisted.” Sure, he might actually be twisted on the show, but he is just so easy on the eyes that we’re almost willing to forgive the actor behind the role for inhabiting it so well. Also, that’s why he’s this week’s Hump Day Hottie.
Check out this dreamy photo of Avan, and keep reading for more details about him!
Vital stats: 21-year-old Avan grew up in British Columbia, Canada. (Happy belated Canada Day!) The Vancouver native eventually left school to pursue acting full time. A gamble that has clearly paid off for him.
Where you might have already seen him: Avan has built up quite the resume with roles in several TV shows including “Aliens In America,” “Caprica” and “Victorious.” He’s also appeared in flicks including “Spectacular!” and “Rags.”
Why you should take notice of him now: He is now the star of the latest ABC Family soap, “Twisted.” And, just like its lead-in, “Pretty Little Liars,” this show has lots of, well, twists and turns to keep your summer hot all season. The big question at the heart of the show’s plot is if Avan’s character, Danny, is capable of murder…again.
“Danny uses his charm as a defense mechanism for something else. I don’t know if that’s something that’s really, really dark—that he is a crazy, sociopathic murderer, or something lighter than that—but he is hiding secrets that are out of his control. Danny wants to protect the ones he loves,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. “He’ll do literally anything. That’s a big part of it.”
Until next week, when we choose another Hump Day Hottie, you can salute Avan by gawking at the photo above!
