Pre TV life of Wes

Wes Gibbins is a film character from the TV serial “How to Get Away with Murder” (2014-2020). Brazilian-British actor Alfred Enoch plays this role in the movie. He is from London. Wesley Gibbons was born on October 24, 1993. According to the show, he was conceived in Haiti, but as a child, his family moved to the United States. They stopped in Ohio when child reached 1. His mother started working for the Mahoney family as a maid. After moving to a new place, Wes quickly became the main black child in the area. This resulted in his leadership spirit. His father soon left, and his mother Rose committed suicide. At that time he was 11 years old. Wes Gibbins was left alone. As a lonely black child, he was sheltered in a boarding school where he lived and studied. Also, foster parents changed his name from Christophe Edward to Wesley Gibbons. In the memory of those with whom Wesley studied, he had boy-next-door charm. When he came to Middleton Law school, he was an outsider. Shy law student was helped by Annalise Keating, with her help he learned a lot, especially about the dark sides of the legal system and criminal investigation. Nevertheless, not only laws and legal norms he analyzed but also her secrets. It made him less and less innocent.

What is in the beginning?

In the first season, Wes Gibbins helps Annalise Keating in Rebecca’s case. Rebecca is unexpectedly released from custody, and a romantic relationship develops between Rebecca and Westley. Some series after, Westley with his colleagues was involved in Sam Keating’s murder. The fact is that he defended Rebecca and exceeded the degree of protection required. At the same time, Rebecca was killed by Bonnie. Bonnie was protecting Annalise Keating.

In the second season, new facts about Westley’s life were discovered. He was in shock about the fact, that he had another birth name. It turned out that his real name was Christophe Edward. In addition, it was found that his mother Rose was Annalise Keating’s client, before committing suicide. Westley also was embroiled in a new murder. The new victim was Emily Sinclair. In the finale of season, a new romantic relationship started with Laurel Castillo.

During the second season, fans were teased by some new facts about Wes Gibbins. There was an impression that he killed his mother, not suicide. In retrospective scenes of Annalise’s memories, we saw that she wanted to use Rose’s alibi in case of Wallace Mahoney murder. However, Annalise wanted to testify anonymously. However, Charles’ wife Wallace Mahoney was drowning Rose and she did not appear in court. She went to Ohio to find out what was going on. There Annalise Keating found shocking truth – Wes Gibbins may have killed his mother. The episode ended with a flashback scene where Wes Gibbins stayed over her with a bloody knife. His mother Rose drowned in the blood puddle. But as it known, his mother was bleeding out all over the kitchen floor with a knife stuck in her neck.

At the beginning of the third season, we see a house on fire and a minor character death. The whole season the answers to the questions are not given. To the mystery is added that Dominic was Annalise’s past boyfriend. He was given an order to kill Westley to save the illegal business dealings of Castillo’s family.

Annalise Keating was shocked when she realized who was murdered in her burned house. However, we see a victim just in the mid – season finale. The day before the victim’s death, Laurel’s mom, Sandrine Castillo called him. She called him by his real name, that was given by foster parents, Christoph. Sandrine Castillo asked to meet Westley in the diner. He recorded the whole conversation. In this conversation, Sandrine reminded him of his problems with the law and said a few words about Laurel Castillo. She asked not to talk to Laurel Castillo because her last boyfriend Frank had returned. Westley argued and resisted, but Sandrine said that Laurel Castillo would break his heart. That is what Laurel Castillo was realy good in. In addition, she offered to take a check for $100,000. Westley took the check but later ripped it.

After the meeting with Sandrine, he transferred the recording to a flash drive and hid it at home. When Laurel Castillo returned home and saw him, Laurel Castillo thought he was upset as Frank returned. Laurel Castillo said they broke up and there was nothing between Laurel Castillo and Frank for a long time. After talking to Laurel’s mother, Westley was angry and a fight broke out between them. This was before the day he died.
