‘Pretty Little Liars’: Brant Daugherty Breaks Down Shocking Death Scene

SPOILER ALERT: This post includes spoilers from the “Pretty Little Liars” Season 7 summer finale, which aired on Aug. 30. 

Brant Daugherty came back to Rosewood for the seventh season of “Pretty Little Liars” — and he left just as quickly as he returned.

The actor, who plays Noel Kahn on the hit Freeform series, saw his character brutally killed off during yesterday’s summer finale (Noel was decapitated by an axe). Brant stopped by Variety’s Los Angeles offices Tuesday for an exclusive Facebook Live chat to discuss his gruesome send-off.

“It’s probably the most spectacular death on the show,” Daugherty said during our Facebook Live chat, dishing behind-the-scenes details of his death scene. He explained that the head rolling down the stairs in the episode was actually not a prosthetic — it was really his own head and his body was taken out of the scene by special effects.

So, even though Noel was killed off, could Daugherty return for the final 10 episodes of “Pretty Little Liars” when it returns in April –perhaps in flashbacks?

“I cannot say for certain,” Daugherty teased. “I would always love to explore more of Noel so we’ll see what happens, so keep your eye out.”

The actor also dished on his upcoming big screen role in the “50 Shades of Grey” sequel, “50 Shades Freed.”
