Leah Matheson is a character on ABC Family's Pretty Little Liars. She made her debut in Grave New World and she is portrayed by Elizabeth Whitson. She is Olivia and Luke's cousin.


Her only known family are the Mathesons and she attended the Ravenswood City Celebration with her cousin Luke. Implying that she too is a resident of Ravenswood however  It's unlikely she was still living in Ravenswood due to not being mention by her cousins or being seen in the short lived titular series.


Grave New World

Leah is at the Celebration talking to a guy in low voices, but she quickly leaves him. Alone, Aria Montgomery follows Leah and helps her out of an empty grave, which she had fallen into.

Pretty Little Liars



  • Elizabeth Whitson appears in this episode as a character named Leah, who is appearantly Luke's cousin. However, when this episode was shot Whitson was still going to play Olivia, Luke's twin sister, in the actual spin-off show. The role was recast with Merrit Patterson after this episode was shot and before the first episode for Ravenswood was shot. If you look closely you can see the dialogue was changed during post-production and doesn't match up with what her lips are saying. Her lips are saying 'No, that was my brother', but we're hearing 'cousin' instead of 'brother'. When Luke calls her 'Leah', that's also off-screen. He was probably calling her 'Olivia' before.
