The Shonda Rhimes crime drama's first season finale revealed that Charlie Weber's character Frank Delfino killed pregnant sorority girl Lila Stangard on the orders of Annalise Keating's now-deceased husband Sam. Weber stopped by ET Friday to dish on how his character went from law assistant to contract killer.
"I knew that was coming, that I owe him this, and whatever capacity that means," Weber told ET’s Kevin Frazier and Brooke Anderson. "We’re going to have to get into that in season two."
His character may still be a mystery, but Weber also opened up about his real life. The 36-year-old actor has a 10-year-old daughter and recently proposed to his attorney girlfriend.
"I actually bought the ring in Philadelphia when we were shooting the pilot," Weber revealed. "I went home and I think I texted her that I wanted to just cook her dinner, tried to be real sneaky about it. So I just made a nice dinner, we had a nice bottle of wine. I asked her to wait here for a second and went and got the ring and got on my knee and asked."
The ET team managed to dig even deeper into Weber's past, surprising him with some old modeling photos. The sexy star moved from Missouri to New York City as a teenager to study acting and ended up getting a job modeling for Abercrombie & Fitch.
"It’s sort of stunning to see that picture, that was a lifetime ago," Weber said of the 1998 campaign. "Those were fun days. I got to travel and hang out with cool people."
