The teen drama, mystery thriller series Pretty Little Liars is based on eight novels of the same name by Sara Shepard. Since the show was adapted for TV audiences in 2010, it has become a ratings success and has brought actresses Troian Bellisario (Spencer), Ashley Benson (Hanna), Lucy Hale (Aria) and Shay Mitchell (Emily) into the spotlight of fame. Since the show is about to finish airing its seventh and final season, here are 13 things you didn’t know about the popular show:
13. Scared of Girls.
In a 2011 Seventeen interview, Troian Bellisario said: “Girls terrified me. If a boy was mad at you, he hit you or he’d yell at you. I’m thinking about my brothers. Boys didn’t go around just hitting me. But it was easy. With girls all of a sudden she’ll tell you ‘That skirt looks ugly on you.’ And you’re like ‘Oh you’re mad at me! I have to figure out what I’ve done.’” Working on the set of Pretty Little Liars has probably increased her fears.
