Character Overview

Liam had a pretty rocky childhood, his mother being a maid, and his father a (failing) recovering alcoholic. He and his half-brother, Charlie Selby, both suffered from the effects of their alcoholic abusive uncle. Charlie stole credit cards and got caught by their parents and the police. Charlie ran and blamed it on Liam, causing a major rift in their friendship. His family was extremely poor until his mother remarried a controlling, cheating man named Jeffrey. Liam hated Jeffrey from the beginning and pushed his mother to see what a terrible man he was, but she refused to, driving Liam out of the house. In the final episode, Liam finally reveals his true love for Annie and proposes to her and she accepted his proposal.


Season 1

Liam, a student of West Beverly Hills High School, was introduced as a nice, good-looking, valiant and confident bartender who met Naomi Clark while she was eating a large hotdog. He is very troubled. The two entered into a mutually flirtatious relationship, though Naomi did not initially know of his status as a high school student. Later, Naomi soon saw him in one of her classes, and discovered that he'd been attempting to dodge school. She also learned that she'd accidentally tipped his parents off to this by sending him a gift. At school, Naomi offered to tutor Liam when a teacher requested a volunteer. Sensing his resentment, she later apologised for what had happened with his parents, asking if they could start over. When the two actually sat down to study, however, it became clear that he was smarter than he'd let on. During a drive in his car, Liam explained that he'd largely been dodging school because he'd become bored with it. Later that night, Naomi learned that Liam was involved in street racing. He then offered to call her a cab, but she declined, and rode along with him during a race. Afterwards, Liam fought off a fellow racer who made unwelcome advances towards Naomi. The two then drove off, and ended the night by kissing before going their separate ways. Liam joined other students in a Habitat for Humanity project led by West Beverly teacher Ryan Matthews. During the construction, Naomi asked her ex-boyfriend Ethan Ward to question Liam about his romantic interest in her. Liam became dismissive and hostile when approached, prompting Ethan to reciprocate. During a private moment, however, Liam surprised Naomi by making out with her. Later, Ethan heard a rumour that Liam had peyote, and threatened to reveal this to Matthews unless he shared it. The two held conversation the next night, with Ethan revealing many personal feelings while believing he was under the influence of his drink. Soon afterward, Liam hurt his leg during a fall. In the midst of helping Liam up, Ethan learned that he'd been deceived, as he'd merely been drinking tea and this prompted Ethan to punch Liam. Shortly afterward, Liam apologised by revealing a personal secret of his own, stating that they were even. Naomi then learned that the two had apparently reached an accord, and the guys rode home together. Liam became generally distant from Naomi in the coming days, appearing to only be interested in their physical relationship. During a double date involving he, his cousin, Naomi and Annie Wilson, Liam privately asked Annie out. Annie chose to quietly decline the invitation. When Naomi confronted Liam regarding this, Liam stated that he wasn't interested in steady relationships. Naomi, however, maintained an interest in him as she walked away. Following a party, Liam brought an intoxicated Dixon Wilson back to the Wilson home. Annie then chatted with Liam, who expressed interest in her once again, claiming that she wasn't as much of a good girl as she appeared to be. Before leaving, he suggested that he was curious as to what lied beneath her surface. Over time, Liam's stepfather became upset by Liam's tendency to skip school and steal credit cards.

When his stepfather requested that he become more imvolved in school activities, Liam asked Naomi to the prom. After the event, Naomi became upset upon learning the reason he'd invited her, but soon discovered that his feelings for her were deeper than she'd suspected.

The two then had a private dance on the street before becoming separated. Liam maintained a degree of interest in Annie after the prom. Later in the evening, Naomi's sister, Jen Clark, became resentful when Naomi claimed control of their house and threw an after-prom party. Liam, who'd asked Naomi to keep their personal discussions private, was unaware that she'd already revealed things about him to Jen. Upon discovering this later, Liam was left to believe that he'd been betrayed. He then followed Jen to bed, where the two acted on their mutual spite for Naomi. Upon finding Liam half-naked, Naomi left the room after declaring their relationship over. Liam then became remorseful when Jen identified herself as Naomi's sister. While attempting to call Naomi later, Liam was forcibly removed from his room by men from the Stembrook therapy program, who claimed to have been sent by his stepfather.

When Liam arrives back at home, he finds his mum struggling with a new coffee machine and Jen. His mother explained to him that Jen had come over to speak to him about Naomi. She requested that Liam stay away from Naomi because she was still distraught over what happened. Liam likes Naomi and wanted to tell her it wasn't Annie he slept with, it was Jen. Dixon, Liam and Teddy Montgomery all try out for the surf team at the beach.

She thanks him for forcing her hand and says that Naomi will never believe that they slept together. Back at his house Liam plays back his recording of Jen when she admitted that she slept with him. Liam walks toward Naomi to have her listen to her sister confess that she slept with him, but sees that Naomi is crying. In Ryan's class, a student grabs Liam's phone.

Liam waits for Ryan to return to his classroom after school, but he doesn't show up. He breaks into Ryan's office to look for his phone and Ryan catches him and gives him detention. Ryan informs Liam that his parents asked him to call them if he gave them any problems. Liam tells Ryan he doesn't understand that his stepfather is a jerk. Liam's dad Jeffrey comes to school and tells his mum that he was only going to give Liam one more chance. Jeffrey announces that Liam is a bad seed. Ryan arrives, overhears Jeffrey and tells him that Liam is doing a great job and he should be proud of him. Later, Liam tells Ryan that what he did was very cool but Ryan says that he still has detention and returns his phone. Liam asks if he missed the deadline for the writing contest and Ryan informs him that he has three days left. At the beach club, Liam sees Naomi and readies his phone to play Jen's confession that she slept with him. Just before he reaches her table, he sees Richard sit down with Naomi and give her a kiss.

When he goes back home his birth father, who just got out of prison, is waiting for him. He tells him that he wants to reconnect with Liam. His father wanted Liam to move in with him and run a bait shop together, so Liam steals some coins from his stepfather's coin collection so they would have the money and gives the coins to his father. He is eager to be back in his life but soon realises that he has taken the coins and abandoned him.

Later, he goes to Annie's house to do their homework, but sees how messed up Annie's parents really are. So they go out for fresh air, Annie and Liam have a moment and it seems they were about to kiss, but she tells him he should forgive Naomi. Liam takes her advice and gets back together with Naomi.

Naomi and Liam both start to get distracted as things go on, which Liam tries telling Naomi but keeps being interrupted by her, Naomi keeps telling her side of the story not paying attention to what Liam is trying to tell her.

Then Liam tells Naomi that she has no idea what is going on in his life and she says she will pay more attention and she will never ignore him again.

The cops show up and everyone gets arrested because they're underage.

Silver goes to see the two of them in their jail cell. She asks why they were having a drinking contest and they say she was the prize.

She leaves when both of them are speechless. In the season finale, Liam talks with Austin about how much of a failure his life is.

While taking down his "For Sale" sign, Liam rips a staple across an electrical wire and accidentally sets the bar on fire. Instead of trying to tame it, he lets it burn. 

Liam later tells the firefighter he was at the hospital when the fire happened. While Liam calls to confirm his insurance check. Vanessa shows up at the bar and Liam gives her the money and she tells him she can't accept it since it was obtained fraudulently. It turns out Vanessa had cameras set up around the bar and caught the fire on tape. She frames him by saying she'll distrubute the video unless he gives her a second chance. Later, Vanessa introduces herself as Liam's fiance at the reception. Back at the house, the "couple" gets into a big argument and he calls her insane. Vanessa then grabs him and accidentally falls off their balcony onto the beach. Liam calls 911, but when he looks down, Vanessa's not there. Liam asks Annie about finding a lawyer to help him with his contract issue and she points him to a woman named Lindsey Beckwith. When Liam goes back to the bar, he's met by a Detective Thompsen who's looking for Vanessa. Next, Liam meets with Lindsey, who tells him that his contract is, basically, a mess and he has to wait out for 3 years.

After helping Dixon, Liam tells him there's something he needs to take care of. He heads to the police station to talk to Detective Thompsen about Vanessa. Right when he was about to tell Thompsen about her, Thompsen tells Liam that Vanessa was a master con artist, and says that Vanessa is most likely out of the country and they'd be surprised if they ever see her again. Liam decides to take business classes with Lindsey Beckwith but she doesn't think he's serious about business school and gives him an F on his first paper. Meanwhile, his co-star, Carrie Ann Monroe, decides to follow him around with paparazzi all the time to get publicity. To get away from her he goes on a camping trip with Dixon and Navid, whilst there he decides to go into the woods to get firewood by himself. Unsurprisingly, he gets himself lost. Carrie Ann finds Liam in the woods and Liam admits to taking his career for granted, so he agrees to go along with her publicity stunts.

He then re-writes his paper and tries to hand it in to Lindsey again. She tells him she already gave him a chance, gives him an F, and tells him to consider dropping out. Liam talks to Silver about school and she advises him to plow threw it. Liam decides to meet with Lindsey's firm and requests her to take his case. To prove that he's serious, he tells her he dropped her class so there would be no conflict of interest. Liam hands over his business plan and asks Lindsey to come over to the pop-up on Saturday to drop them off. At the pop-up, Lindsey comes by to drop off the revision to Liam. Liam tells her he'll sign off on it after he reads it, and asks her to stick around and check out the place. After Lindsey admits to seeing his movie with her ex, the duo have some banter and then sleep together in the kitchen.

Liam wants to be seen with Lindsey, but she doesn't think it looks right. Lindsey then shows up at the Comic Con and surprises Liam. Later, Liam's sex tape is shown on the big screen. After Lindsey walks out embarrassed, Silver and Liam realise Navid set this up. Liam meets with Lindsay and she tells him that not only is her academic career over but so is their relationship. When Navid tries to apologise to him, Liam just writes a check for everything Navid put into the club and tells him to get lost.

Liam goes crazy after getting a mysterious letter and after punching a paparazzi and getting arrested, his studio sends him a bodyguard, a female cop named Ashley Howard. Liam continues to get threats about Vanessa, he tells Annie about what happened with Vanessa and the two confront Jasper, who reveals he is now in film school and wants Liam to read his script as a sign of forgiveness. Liam accepts Jasper's offer. Then Liam forgives Navid and has him move into the Offshore while Liam moves to a new undetected house. For Christmas, after Liam invites Ashley to the Offshore Christmas party, he sees an envelope addressed to him and finds a picture of his old balcony and a demand of $500,000 on Friday night. Liam gets pulled over on his way to the drop off, and it turns out the cop who pulled him over is Ashley. She says she can't let him see Vanessa and arrests him. Ashley takes him to some parking garage and tells him she needs to keep him safe. Liam tells her he needs to go to her, and Ashley says she can't let him do that. Ashley then stabs a needle in Liam's leg. Liam wakes up in a basement with footage from the bar. When he wakes up, he finds that he's handcuff free. After Ashley tells him that she was suspended from her job months ago for erratic behaviour, she props open a huge box and informs Liam that he'll be shipped in a crate to Southern Mexico for his safety. Liam lures her over and tries to romance himself out of the situation. Vanessa shows up on the camera feed, so that plan stops and Ashley leaves to confront Vanessa. When Annie comes to rescue Liam, Liam insists that they don't leave Vanessa. Liam interrupts Vanessa and Ashley's fight to stun gun Ashley. Ashley is shocked that Liam chose to save Vanessa so she grabs a gun and prepares to shoot. Annie sees this and fights Ashley over the gun and a shot goes off.

Naomi Clark

When Naomi was living alone in a hotel where Liam worked as a bartender, they flirted with each other and both of them thought that the other one was older. Naomi sent him a gift which his mother found and for what she sent Liam back to school. The two of them start dating but in the Season 1 finale Jen, Naomi's sister sleeps with him because Naomi threw a party that Jen didn't approve of. Liam sleeps with her because he thinks that Naomi told everyone at school some private stuff that Liam told Naomi after he confessed his feelings to her. Naomi thought that Liam had hooked up with Annie, which was not true and the two broke up.

Throughout Season 2, Liam tries to tell Naomi that he slept with Jen but he contemplates the decision because Jen is Naomi's older sister and doesn't want her to feel even more betrayed. Eventually, Liam, Ivy, Teddy and Dixon come up with a plan to tell Naomi what happened. Naomi is upset by the betrayal but eventually forgives Liam but not Jen.

Jen Clark

In Season 1, Naomi had attended the prom with him. Upon discovering that she told someone about what they talked about earlier, Liam was left to believe that he'd been betrayed. He then followed Jen to bed, where the two acted on their mutual spite for Naomi. Upon finding Liam half-naked, Naomi left the room after declaring their relationship over. Liam then became remorseful when Jen identified herself as Naomi's sister. Believing Annie to be the other girl, Naomi chastised her out in the open. This prompted Annie to leave the party while reporting the underage drinking to the police. Later, Naomi was comforted by Jen. The party came to an end, however, when police offiers arrived on the scene.

In Season 2, Jen continued to manipulate and sponge off her sister Naomi for several months. She kept Liam from telling Naomi the truth about Prom night by approaching his mother. Unbeknownst to Jen, Liam recorded one of her confession/threats on his cellphone as proof, but later erased it. At a horse race, several of the gang set up an elaborate stunt to ruin Jen. Naomi overheard Jen reveal everything to Liam and told Jen to get lost.

Ivy Sullivan

In Season 2, when they first met, the two got into a fight when they had a car accident. They later reconciled at a Halloween party and started to be friends. After the party, at Liam's basement, the two kiss and start a discreet love story. She helps him overcome his nemesis, Jen. Liam eventually asks Ivy to a dance, but it soon becomes apparent that he has his eyes still set on fellow student Naomi. Ivy then decides it is best for her and Liam to merely be friends, assisting him in his pursuit of Naomi by texting her to go and see Liam. At some point Liam told her that he and she will never be together again which ended their relationship. They stayed good friends.

Annie Wilson

Liam shows interest in Annie since he met her, and in the second season they begin to grow closer. Annie was there for him, when he needed someone to talk to, and they started to share secrets. At the beginning of Season 3 Liam is mad at Annie for not returning his phone calls the whole summer, and Annie apologises. Later they kiss but Annie tells him that they can't happen, because of his past with her best friend Naomi.

Liam then asks Naomi if it would be ok if they started dating, and she tells him that it's ok. But Annie rejects him again, when he gets her into trouble. Liam then tries to show Annie that he has changed, and even moves into the Wilson house to be closer to her. Liam then discovers that she is dating Charlie, Liam's half-brother. He then uses a girl to make Annie jealous and gets beaten up, which leaves Annie realising that she wants to be with Liam. Everything seems ok until graduation, where Liam tells Annie that he doesn't want to go to college, which leaves Annie feeling betrayed; they break up. Annie then goes to Liam before he leaves and tells him that she will wait for him to come back and they kiss goodbye.

In the fourth season Liam is back and proposes to Annie twice, but she rejects him both times, partly because she isn't ready to get married. Liam then gets into a relationship with Jane, a woman he met in Alaska. When they're relationship ends, Liam and Annie almost reconcile during the holidays but he then rejected her so he could be with Vanessa.

In Season 5, Annie told Liam she still loved him but he was too drunk to respond. It was then obvious he didn't feel the same way because in the next episode, he started seeing a married woman named Sydney. When Liam found out Annie was Author X, he accused her of using him and he told her he didn't need to know how the book ended but he then took back Sydney, a woman who was actually using him. Liam decided he would move to Australia to start a new life with Sydney to fund his move, he asked Annie to buy the bar. When the explosion happened, Annie hoped this would make Liam realise he loved her but all he said to her was, "The good thing about cancellations is you can always reschedule," Sydney then told Liam to read the end of Annie's book. He read the book and realised how she felt about him, and he also realised how he felt about her. She eventually accepts his third proposal. The others then learn of the news on their phones.

Annie offers to take Liam home, but Liam tells her that he has a ride and that Vanessa is going to drive him. Liam says goodbye to Annie and he and Vanessa leave. Vanessa soon becomes Liam's girlfriend, and they do everything together such as skydiving and going on road trips. However, she soon becomes obsessed with his career, causing him to break up with her. It was then revealed that she had blackmailed a director to give him a lead in a film. When she leaves, he comes back and discovers that she has taken off of his money. Later in the season, she comes back. In Season 5, she blackmails Liam into giving her another chance.
