Shay Mitchell has a big reason to celebrate today:
The actress turns 27 years old!
Beloved for her role on Pretty Little Liars as Emily Fields, Mitchell has earned rave reviews for portraying one of the few open lesbians on television.
She began her career as a model, most notably posing for American Eagle Outfitters and going on to appear in the Disney XD series Aaron Stone.
She then won a Young Hollywood Award in 2011, along with the rest of the Pretty Little Liars cast, and is now an entrenched part of one of TV's hottest shows.
So join us now in sending Shay some major birthday wishes and click the following photo gallery in her honor:
