Why should you tune in for Pretty Little Liars, which debuts on ABC Family tonight?
Star Lucy Hale makes it clear in a new interview with TV Guide: the series has "really cute boys, great love stories and you get to see some cool fashion."
What else do you need to know about the drama?!? Hale reveals more in the following excerpts:
What is her character, Aria, like? In the pilot, she's coming home from Iceland, where she found herself and became comfortable with who she was. She's very mature for her age and comfortable in her own skin, which I think is good for girls to see because it's kind of rare. She's different; she's quirky. She sort of does her own thing, and she's fine with it.
Is there pressure to live up to the books on which the show is based? Some people are upset because we don't look like the models on the covers. I think everyone's doing a great job because the characteristics are all the same - the trials they go through, the secrets that they keep.
On Aria's love interest, Mr. Fitz (Ian Harding): I meet this great guy in a restaurant, and think I've met a wonderful person who I connect with really well. Then go to school the next day and, bam, he's my English teacher. We try to stop it. We know it's wrong and we know it can get him in trouble, but we have this undeniable connection and chemistry and can't stay away from each other.
