I love him on switch at birth, dont wasnt him tio leave :(


I think, though, that you will find a beggir audience in the recovery section than perhaps in the massive memoir section. Just started the book, and it's intense, in a good (very good) way.


I wonder how this would affect his relationship with Daphne on Switched at Birth or how they would play it out. Almost like how Ty left for The Lying Game. He's really warming up on this series.


he looks 100% like a young Leif Garrett . Y'all look it up on google you'll be suprised.


Noooooo!!! Why please tell me hes still gonna be on Switch @ Birth.


This sucks so much now what's going to happen to wilke and dapne �


Omg is he leaving Switched???? I love him


Does this mean hes leaving SAB?? I love Wilkie this sucks.


To me he is always just...vanessa hudgens boyfriend


what a moron, i would for his character on Switched. the show he will star in will be canceled after a few episodes like many other CW shows.
