The show’s executive producer has been sharing numerous behind-the-scenes photos and clips ever since production wrapped for good, and due to popular demand, she recently offered viewers a glimpse at Ian Harding’s final moments on set. In the bittersweet footage, the actor, who made his official debut as Ezra Fitz in the pilot, moves onlookers to tears and laughter as he reminisces about the past seven years – starting with an amusing story about his audition attire.

“Thank you, Marlene and everyone, for taking a chance on a guy who showed up for a sexy role in a Christmas sweater,” he began. “I auditioned in a green sweater, while everybody else is wearing, like, Armani and everything. I walked in, and I didn’t know what I was doing, so I wanted to say thank you. I’ve been able to grow as a person on this show, and it’s meant a lot. It’s so painful to say goodbye, and I always find that humor is the best way to get around that. … The humor on this set is bar none.”
