The television series that centers on a group of teenage girls with a little bit of mystery thrown in has been on air since 2010. It is still up in the air about whether it will air for an eight season or not, but with six under their belt, it is quite popular with the young adult demographic.
Loosely based on the book series of the same title, this show follows the lives of four girls Spencer Hastings, Aria Montgomery, Hanna Marin, and Emily Fields who are in a little group that slowly disbands after their leader, Alison DiLaurentis disappears. They are brought back together after a year when they all start getting messages from a mysterious “A”.
The four main actresses that play these roles are Lucy Hale, Ashley Benson, Shay Mitchell, and Troian Bellisario. These four ladies have played the roles for all six seasons, and will continue to play the roles until the show ends.
Ashley Benson started her career on the daytime soap Days of Our Lives and played her role for three years before having a few smaller movie roles. She then got a part on the ABC show, Eastwick, before it ended and she landed the role as Hanna Marin for Pretty Little Liars.
Before Lucy Hale was Aria Montgomery on Pretty Little Liar, she has just a few smaller roles on various television shows ranging from the Disney Channel to NBC. It wasn’t until she got the role on the show that she became a household name. She also is a singer on the side.
Shay Mitchell is from Canada and before she took the role on Pretty Little Liars, she really was not well known in the United States and she really had not had a lot of experience. But since then, she has taken a few small roles outside of the show.
Lastly, Troian Bellisario comes for a Hollywood family so she was in a few small roles as a small child. She once starred as a small part a movie with Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen in 1998. Once she landed the role on Pretty Little Liars, she had her first starring role and has been a household name ever since.
These four ladies have taken the young adult television world by storm. Whether the show does end after the seventh season or not, these ladies will be household names from here on out, and they have much success waiting for them in the future.
