A big change is coming to the life of the man who plays Ezra Fitz and Pretty Little Liars fans may not know how to deal with it. Now that the famed Freeform drama is soon coming to an end, Ian Harding can now grow back his chest hair. I know, I know. You're probably so used to seeing his hairless chest during all those shirtless scenes, but don't expect that any longer. Harding's smooth chest days are long gone.
In an excerpt from his book of essays titled Odd Birds obtained by People, the 30-year-old reveals that he was required to have the same haircut and a "smooth, porpoise-y chest" (his amazing words, not mine) while portraying Ezra, but now that PLL has officially wrapped he doesn't have to worry about it. "I know that once it’s done there will be some big changes," he writes about the series coming to an end. And those "big changes" include the hair on his body.
"I’ve been contractually obligated to have the same haircut for the last seven years." I think all PLL fans will agree that if or when Harding starts sporting a new 'do, it's going to take some getting used to. Though, he does have some nice, thick, and wavy locks, so I'm sure whatever kind of hairstyle he has, he'll still look as handsome as ever.
Now onto his chest hair. Harding continues about when the show's end will probably hit him, "Or when my chest hair grows back and I don’t have to worry about shaving it again for work, then I’ll be reminded that the show is really over. That might be when I start to feel nostalgic." Who knew hair could be make someone feel so sentimental? I imagine once again having chest hair would be quite the change. I mean, just think about going from a hairy chest to a "smooth, porpoise-y chest" back to a hairy chest. That sure sounds like quite the experience.
Ezra lovers, prepare yourselves starting now and get your fill of his smooth chest and coiffed hair, because Harding will most definitely be a new and improved man when you see him again.
