WE CHAT WITH LUCY HALE ABOUT BEING A ROLE MODEL AND THE NEW SEASON OF PRETTY LITTLE LIARS!
By: Tetris Kelly

Over the past year we have watched the life of Aria Montgomery turn upside down time and time again throughout the first season of ABC Family's hit series Pretty Little Liars! The mystery of these characters adds to the growing popularity of the series and it's stars. Every week after a new episode airs it is likely that one or more of these characters will be trendin topics on the popular social media website Twitter. So what exactly is in store for the new season of Pretty Little Liars? We recently sat down with actress and Seventeen Magazine cover girl Lucy Hale to try and sort out all of your burning questions!

How does it feel to be on the cover of Seventeen Magazine?

It's pretty insane because I grew up reading this magazine and obviously I would know everyone who was on the cover and knew abou their careers, and just to be included and to think that they think of me as a role model it's very awesome, it's flattering.

Now that so many teenagers are watching you portray Aria Montgomery on Pretty Little Liars and because you are gracing the cover of magazines, do you feel like there is pressure to becoming a role model?

Yeah, obviously I am not a perfect person - I am 21 and I make mistakes! Everybody does stupid things and I think it's important for people to realize that you don't have to be this picture perfect person. I never really set out to be a role model, but I think it's important - because I have younger cousins and I have younger friends - I think it's good you learn by making mistakes and then learn by them and the lessons come. I think it's very important. I never expected to be (a role model), but I'll take the role gladly.

The show ended with some crazy clifhangers in the finale episode last season.  If you were a fan watching the show what questions do you think you would want answered this seasoon?

(When) it ended, Ian is apparently dead.  He is hanging from the bell tower and the girls come back in and his body is gone.  So, obviously I would want to know if he is really dead.  I think a lot of the questions people want to know is if he killed Allison.  What Jenna has to do with the whole equation.  I know a lot of people, with my story line, want to know when everyone is going to find out about Aria and Ezra.  I'm with (the fans because) I still don't know the answers to a lot of these questions.

So you are going to be sitting at the table read with the cast and will be like, "What? What is going to happen?"

I know - you should be in there!  A lot of times we don't have time to read the whole script, we will just read our parts real quick last minute and we are just in shock when we hear it out loud because we never saw any of it coming.

That's got to be a really cool experience to see the cast still getting excited about the storylines.

I think it's a good sign that we are.  We are just on our second season - we've done our seventh episode and we've done twenty-nine total and we are still pumped about it.

That is a good sign!

And hopefully it stays that way!

Do you feel like Aria will be able to escape the drama surrounding "A" this season now that Spencer seems to be taking the heat with the police investigation?  

In the finale it looks like we've cried wolf so there is a lot of attention on Spencer.  But all of the girls away from the drama?  No, it just gets crazier!

As if the show could get any crazier! It will be exciting to see what is in store for the girls in Season 2.  We spoke with Sasha Pieterse, who plays Allison, a few weeks ago and she hinted that we may be seeing a little more of her character this season on the show.

(In) Season 2, there will be a lot more flashbacks.  We are doing an episode coming up where a majority of the show will be an entire flashback so she will be throughout that episode.  We get to see more about her home life, her brother, her parents - her mom just got cast, we did a great episode with her.  So, yeah she is throughout this season.

Have you had a chance to watch any of the episodes or extras featured on the Pretty Little Liars: The Complete First Season DVD?

I just got a package from the producers that has the DVD set, but I haven't gotten to see any of the bonus features yet.

Does it feel like an accomplishment to get your hands on a DVD set of a series you are a part of?

It's definitely a sense of accomplishment, and its cool to re-watch the episodes and remember back (when we filmed them).  I honestly can't remember when we shot last week - my mind is just all over the place - so it's cool to just take that trip down memory lane.

Lastly, throughout the first season we have seen these friendships put to the teste time and time again, getting pulled apart and coming back together again.  What advice would you give to girls out there about friendship and maintaining those close relationships?

First of all, stand your ground and know who you are as a person and find the friends that you know bring out the best in you.  It's hard growing up and surrounding yourself with the right people and when the right people are there things pull them away - distractions and everything else.  Just follow your heart and I truly believe that everything falls into place the way it's supposed to fall into place, as long as you have your head straight!
