Austin Butler was seen for the second time with his girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens, after returning from New Zealand few days back. 23 year old was seen taking a romantic stroll in the street of soho with his girlfriend of over four years on sunny Wednesday afternoon, June 24, 2015. He was very happy upon being back to New York City and spending some time with his 26 year old girlfriend, after being away for months. The former High School Musical star was very sad after her Broadway Gigi was canceled in June due to poor reviews and sales and she also let her Twitter followers know that. However she has appeared to move on, and was seen not just enjoying the company of her tall blonde boyfriend, but also loving being close to him.
The former Arrows star was in New Zealand since February 2015, shooting for his upcoming MTV fantasy show “The Shannara Chronicles” as Wil Ohmsford. He got fortunate after booking the lead role in the new MTV’s promising summer show alongside actress Ivana Baquero and actor Manu Bennett. Since wrapping up the MTV show and partying with the crew, he returned back to New York City right on time to attend the last performance of his girlfriend’s Broadway Gigi, which he did. He was seen taking pictures with his die hard fans in the theatre and after that leaving the theatre with Vanessa and Stella Hudgens confirming that he was indeed back to NYC.
Butler who was rumored to return to writer Lizzy Weiss’ show “Switched at Birth” as Wilke may not return to the show anytime soon because of his busy schedule. He last appeared on the television series on March 20, 2012 after his character was sent away to boarding school because of his poor grades. He left the show, to work on “The Carrie Diaries”, however the show was then canceled, and the actor went on to star in another television series Arrow for 3 episodes only, and afterwards in a few movies. In 2014, fans of “Switched at Birth” expected Austin to return to the show after “The Carrie Diaries” was canceled, but sadly it did not happen. Now once again, as much as the fans would love to see him back on the show this year in 2015, they are in for another disappointment as there is no news of him returning.
