Roark Grant Critchlow plays Tom Marin on Pretty Little Liars. He has been married since 1990 and has three children: daughters Jara Shea (b. 1992) and Reign Eden (b.1994), as well as a son named Credence Roark (b.1999) with fellow actress Maria Brewer. He was named after a character in the book "The Fountainhead ." He was a theater major at the  University of Victoria, Canada. Ironically enough, he also played Ashley Benson's uncle on the soap opera, Days of Our Lives , though they never shared scenes together due to appearing at different times. Ashley also appeared briefly in one episode as on Zoey 101 where Roark appeared reoccuringly as the main character's dad. This is Roark's third time working with Holly Marie Combs. He previously worked with Holly on Charmed and Point of Entry.
