Actress Sasha Pieterse is friendly and kind – – nothing like Alison DiLaurentis, the manipulative character she played for seven seasons on a popular tv series.
Fans of Pretty Little Liars have a new mystery to solve, and this time it involves a murder in the college town of Beacon Heights. “Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists” debuts tonight (March 20) on the W Network, and features the return of not only Sasha Pieterse – – but also Janel Parrish.
The series tells the story of a town of overachievers who are under an intense amount of pressure to succeed. When their high-stakes college environment pushes them to a breaking point, someone snaps. And kills someone. As they work together to solve the murder mystery, it soon becomes clear that behind every Perfectionist is a secret, a lie – and a needed alibi.
I recently had a chance to speak Sasha Pieterse when she was in Toronto, and asked her about playing the role of Alison:
You may remember Sasha from Season 25 of “Dancing with the Stars” in the fall of 2017. Being eliminated from the show wasn’t as hard as having to endure online comments about her weight gain – – something that turned out to be from a medical condition. I asked Sasha what advice she could give to other girls and young women who find themselves being bullied on social media.
