Shay Mitchell
Slide 1 of 7

How excited are you for Pretty Little Liars? The chick lit series-turned-television-show is finally airing (yes!), and dare we saw this book-to-screen adaptation may even be better than Twilight?! The show's been dubbed a mix between Gossip Girl and I Know What You Did Last Summer, which means we can expect plenty of sex, secrets and scandal. We chatted with Shay Mitchell, who plays Emily, about her high school clique, keeping secrets, and what it's like living in LA. Read on!

What attracted you to playing Emily? The fact that she was the good girl of the bunch. And also, she comes from a different kind of family than mine. She has very conservative parents whereas I was brought up with very liberal parents. And I like that she was so truthful and honest to all the friends in the group, so I'd like to think that I am, too.
