Lucian is the pairing of Lucy Hale and Ian Harding. Lucy and Ian are very close friends in real life. They tweet each other often, and have 'fights'. In one of their Ustream Videos Lucy said that she loves Ian like a brother and when Ian got punk'd by Lucy he also said that he loves her (as a friend), showing they are very close.
In 2011, Lucy told Seventeen magazine in an interview she'd never date Ian, "Ian is a doll. He is the coolest guy in the world. So funny. And I feel like our chemistry works so well. People are rooting for us to date, but it will never happen. He's literally like a brother to me!"
Ian has said that he and Lucy are like an "old married couple, things are really just like a well-oiled machine".
