Released in 2010, Pretty Little Liars featured seven seasons of plenty of suspense, drama, and romance. The series marked an era on American television and became known for its young and charismatic cast. Now, three years after production ended, it’s time to find out what the actresses and cast of the show are up to.
CinePOP decided to miss out on this classic 10s teen series. As you can see below, some names have followed a successful trajectory after working in production, while others ended up not having as much. ‘opportunities. Come and see!
Lucy Hale (Aria Montgomery)
Our Aria Montgomery was one of the names that stood out the most after PLL ended. She starred in the thriller Verdade or Desafio and A Ilha da Fantasia (still unreleased in Brazil), and is the protagonist of a leading new series: Katy Keene. This is a spin-off from the hit Riverdale, in which Lucy plays the main character, a young woman who works as a fashion consultant in a department store and dreams of creating her own clothing line. The actress has ongoing projects in film, with a focus on The Hating Game, A Nice Girl Like You, Big Gold Brick and Son of the South.
Troian Bellisario (Spencer Hastings)
Daughter of major Hollywood producers, Troian Bellisario has been in business since the age of three. His most famous role, of course, is that of Spencer Hastings. After the series, the actress saw her career cool down, but that was optional. She married fellow actor Patrick J. Adams (Suits) in 2016, and the two had a daughter in 2018. As a result, Troian ended up devoting much of her post-PLL time to family. Last year, the actress rehearsed a career resumption with Where Are You, Bernadette ?, opposite Cate Blanchett. She also appeared in the Stumptown series, with Cobie Smulders and Jake Johnson. She is currently scheduled to star alongside Patrick Dempsey in the drama Ways & Means.
Shay Mitchell (Emily Fields)
Featured as Emily Fields in PLL, Shay Mitchell practically left the series for another blockbuster production. The actress played Peach Salinger, Guinevere Beck’s best friend, in the first season of Você. Also in 2018, she starred in the horror film Corpse. The following year, he embarked on a new series, Dollface, in which he played alongside Kat Dennings and Brenda Song, and which had already been renewed for a second season. Mitchell is also involved in another series, The Heiresses, as yet unplanned. The plot follows a family known in the diamond industry, but struggling to overcome a streak of tragedy.
Ashley Benson (Hanna Marin)
Despite taking advantage of the PLL hype over the course of the series, completing many important film projects, Ashley Benson ended up slowing down a bit after production ended. Since then, our Hanna Marin has only appeared in one movie: Her Smell, a drama starring Elisabeth Moss, Cara Delevingne and Dan Stevens, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in 2018. For now, the actress has two films in post-production. The Birthday Cake, thriller starring Ewan McGregor, Val Kilmer and Penn Badgley, and Lapham Rising, comedy starring Bobby Cannavale.
Sasha Pieterse (Alison DiLaurentis)
From PLL to PLL. That’s right, Sasha Pieterse was the name of the main cast that remained linked on the show, after all, she returned to play Alison DiLaurentis in the spin-off Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists. The project, however, did not go very well and ended up being called off after one season. Recently, the actress also starred in the drama A Lista de Honra, which was released direct to stream in Brazil (available on Prime Video). At the moment, Sasha is participating in the interactive Epic Night series.
Janel Parrish (Mona Vanderwaal)
Another name that got started in the spin-off Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists, in which he reprise the role of Mona Vanderwaal. But Janel Parrish wasted no time after PLL and completed several other projects. She’s in the trilogy For All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, For All the Boys: PS I Still Love You and For All the Boys: Now and Forever, Lara Jean, as Margot Covey, the sister eldest of Lara Jean. The actress also took part in the new version of Magnum PI, not to mention the films I will be watching, Hell Is Where the Home Is and Tiger.
Ian Harding (Ezra Fitz)
After seven years as the professor who gets involved with a student, Ian Harding makes a few small appearances in theaters in films that haven’t even appeared in Brazil, like Office Uprising and No Apologies. His most talked about film was Oscar nominee Ford vs. Ferrari, but his participation came down to a tip as a Ford executive. The actor saw his career take a new turn when he decided to return to the small screens. Currently, Harding is part of the cast of the Chicago Med medical series, in which he plays Phillip Davis.
Tyler Blackburn (Caleb Rivers)
Hanna’s (and briefly Spencer’s) love interest, Caleb was one of the show’s main male characters, appearing less than Ezra. After working on Pretty Little Liars, actor Tyler Blackburn appeared in two films: Hello Again, an adaptation of the Broadway musical written by Michael John LaChiusa; and Capsized: Blood in the Water, about a group of young people who are lost on the high seas after a storm and find themselves surrounded by sharks. At the moment, Tyler is one of the main actors in the Roswell series in New Mexico.
Keegan Allen (Toby Cavanaugh)
Toby has always been one of the most mysterious characters in PLL. He comes across as the odd guy who didn’t want to argue with anyone until he became Spencer’s romantic partner. In the midst of it all, he still manages to be one of A’s allies and even a cop. Actor Keegan Allen didn’t do anything very important after the series ended. He has made occasional appearances in the Serious Crimes, Dilemma and Rick and Morty series, and played a supporting role in the comedy-drama Zeroville, starring and directed by James Franco. At the moment, the actor is involved in the horror Follow Me and is recording the pilot of a new series, Walker, with Jared Padalecki.
Tammin Sursok (Jenna Marshall)
Typical mean girl – who at the same time fell victim to the main quintet – Jenna Marshall was an important character in the plot of Pretty Little Liars. The role was played by South African Tammin Sursok. Shortly after PLL ended, the actress took on the role of the protagonist of another series, Aussie Girl. Production, however, only lasted one season, with seven episodes. After that, the actress took part in the thriller Killer in a Red Dress and the comedy Braking for Whales, with Tom Felton.
