Tyler Blackburn Marks Seven Years in Pretty Little Liars


Burbank, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 09/12/2018 --American actor Tyler Blackburn has recently carved a milestone on television by appearing in the hit TV show Pretty Little Liars for a total of seven years. Blackburn plays Caleb Rivers, a street-smart bad boy with a shady past who provides phone upgrades and fixes for people for money; and who in alternate turns becomes a spy, an Information Risk Analyst, a Social Media Consultant, and then Security for the Sanitarium-turned Hotel The Radley. Apart from his role on Pretty Little Liars, he has also dabbled in singing, independent cinema, and is currently slated to star in the TV series Roswell, New Mexico as Alex Manes. The sheer diversity of his roles shows his range and effortless ability to inhabit different characters for film and TV. Part of this success is his use of The Heller Approach to acting. Blackburn has worked with top Hollywood acting coach professor Brad Heller at The Heller Approach Acting Studio to learn about The Heller Approach: an acting technique that was developed by Brad Heller from Don Richardson's book Acting without Agony: An Alternative to the Method. It is a technique that relies on Muscle Memory and the phases of Preparation and Execution to provide actors with a fun and non-traumatic way to effectively portray a character. As he writes in his testimonial for The Heller Approach Acting Studio: "Since I started Brad's class I feel that I have come across a technique that works for me. I highly recommend classes with Brad Heller!"
