He tells us a little more about EJ’s character development and where the fan-favorite relationship might be heading in season three. 

We also got to talk to Matt about what it was like to film scenes with Sofia, and how they both prepared for romantic scenes. Matt also gives us a little insight into what we can expect from EJ from this season and the different sides of his character that fans will get to see as the season goes on. Make sure to watch the interview so you can get a sneak peek into how EJ’s storyline will progress in season three.
