Actor Keegan Allen of Pretty Little Liars Headlines 2017 Southern Women’s Show
Keegan Allen, currently known as Toby Cavanaugh to fans on the Freeform hit television series Pretty Little Liars, is the featured celebrity guest at the 2017 Southern Women’s Show in Richmond. The Teen Choice Award-winner appears on the Fashion & Entertainment Stage Saturday, March 18, at the Richmond Raceway Complex.
The show’s summer finale pulled out all the stops, ending with a serious car accident involving Toby and his fiancée, Yvonne. Many fans were left with burning questions about his survival. Meet Keegan on the Fashion & Entertainment Stage to hear more about the upcoming series finale.
In addition to acting, Keegan has a passion for photography. He was given his first camera at age nine, and began a lifelong study and pursuit of photography. His best-selling book, “life.love.beauty” (St. Martin’s Press, www.keeganallenbook.com) is a photo journey through the life of an intensely creative soul whose expression finds various art forms. Keegan will sign copies of the book during his meet and greet after his on-stage talk and Q&A
