Pretty Little Liars on TV2

5:30pm Sunday, February 13 on TV2

When a vindictive and manipulative queen bee, Alison, mysteriously vanishes, four teenage girls believe their secrets are safe forever. However, when they begin to receive threatening messages, the group realise that the truth may be only one text away.

Set one year after the disappearance of Alison, Pretty Little Liars, follows friends Aria (Lucy Hale), Hanna (Ashley Benson), Spencer (Troian Bellisario) and Emily (Shay Mitchell) who all swore they’d never tell what really happened that night. They thought their secrets would bond them together, but just the opposite is true. Now, as the mystery surrounding Alison’s disappearance resurfaces, the girls begin getting messages from ‘A’, saying – and threatening – things only Alison would know. But it couldn’t be Alison. Could it? Whoever it is, they seem to know all the girls’ secrets, and seem to be watching their every move. The girls are friends again, but will they be there for each other if their dark secrets come to light?

For Lucy Hale (Aria), the Pretty Little Liars storyline was just as much of a draw card as the costume design. She told Clevver TV, “My character Sal is pretty cool. She’s the quirkiest one and puts mismatched pieces together. She mixes vintage stuff with modern things and our costume designer is awesome, she says the tagline for my character’s wardrobe is she wants people to think, ‘how did she put that together’?

The love of her characters clothing aside, Hale was thrilled to be playing a character she could relate to. “Aria is a 16-year-old girl, who is part of the group of four girls and she’s very mature for her age,” says the actress. “She an old soul and she knows what she wants at a young age. She’s different from any character I’ve played before but she’s most like myself, which is really fun to get to play.”

In playing a character similar to herself, Hale hopes viewers will be able to relate to her and her three best friends. “What’s so great about this show is the four main girls are completely different, but they’re very real. They go through relatable things and I think everyone watching will latch on to one or all of them.”
