The Last Moment on the 'Pretty Little Liars' Set Was Just As Emotional As You Expect

The Last Moment on the 'Pretty Little Liars' Set Was Just As Emotional As You Expect

Imagine you’ve been working on a show, or at a job for seven full years, and in a moment, it’s all over.

That’s exactly what it was like for Pretty Little Liars stars Sasha Pieterse, Lucy Hale, Troian Bellisario, Shay Mitchell, and Ashley Benson.

“It was like just as emotional as you think it would be,” Lucy shared about the final moment on the set. “We all were crying, and everyone that was involved in the show was there.”

She adds, “Well, what was crazy was when they were like, ‘And that’s a series wrap on Ashley Benson!’ And Sasha, and they went through all of our names and it was just like, wait, what do you mean? Like it always feels like we’re coming back for more, but that was actually the final time.”

No, we’re not crying. We’re just sweating through our eyes.

Pretty Little Liars airs Tuesdays @ 8PM ET/PT on Freeform.

The 'Pretty Little Liars' Cast Attend Their Final Upfronts Together in NYC

The Pretty Little Liars cast just went to their last upfronts ever and we are not okay!

We’re definitely going to miss Lucy Hale, Ashley Benson, Troian Bellisario, Shay Mitchell, and Sasha Pieterse at next years’ presentation.

The five stars met up with showrunner I. Marlene King on the step and repeat.

Speaking about the final day on set, the stars revealed that they all received yearbooks that they signed for each other between filming, almost as if they were really graduating from Rosewood High. (Cue more tears here).

“Ashley and I wore black sunglasses the entire day that covered half our face,” Shay says.

Ashley added, “My eyes were so swollen. I was like, ‘I don’t know if I’m going to be able film!’”

The Pretty Little Liars Live-Tweeted Last Night's Endgame & They Had a LOT of Thoughts

As you all should definitely know (if you read our website religiously) Pretty Little Liars “Endgame” premiered last night and gave pretty little fans everywhere the drama they had been breathlessly waiting (MONTHS AND MONTHS) for.

Ashley Benson, Lucy Hale, Sasha Pieterse, Troian Bellasario, and Shay Mitchell all watched the episode together — and live-tweeted their thoughts — further blessing us with a magical A-filled evening.

We love all of the girls, but (spoiler alert!!) one of them absolutely CRUSHED the live-tweeting.

Lucy lamented her lack of Toby scenes:

And made a Jumanji connection:

The 'Pretty Little Liars' Cast is Happy To Not Keep Secrets Anymore (Video)

The one good thing about the end of Pretty Little Liars? The ladies don’t have to hold in so many secrets anymore!

Lucy Hale, Troian Bellisario, Ashley Benson, Shay Mitchell, and Sasha Pieterse opened up about the final season on Tuesday (April 18) in New York City.

“It’s really bizarre,” Lucy. “We wrapped filming in October, but we knew we still had this week of press to promote. So this is sort of our last shebang, like our last time being all together for a while, so it’s very weird.”

As for the finale, Shay said, “And this is kind of the love letter to the fans. It’s a wrap-up.”

“I’m just glad for all of this secret-keeping to be done,” Troian added. “Because it’s been stressful for us!”

PLL's Troian Bellisario Didn't Think She Was Right to Play Spencer at First

PLL's Troian Bellisario Didn't Think She Was Right to Play Spencer at First

Can you imagine Troian Bellisario in a role other than Spencer on Pretty Little Liars?!

She wasn’t sure she could pull it off at first.

“I was pretty certain that I wasn’t right for Spencer,” Troian told Cosmo. “In my heart, I felt in line with her, but in the book, she was a blonde-haired, green-eyed, all-American girl next door. There was no way they were going to cast me. The scene I auditioned with was her sneaking out of dinner with her family to smoke a cigarette with her sister’s fiancé, which ended up not being in the pilot because it was too risqué!”

Showrunner Marlene King said, “Troian came in with no makeup on and delivered a great performance. We were like, ‘You’ve gotta come in and own it as a Pretty Little Liar.’ She came back with her hair and makeup done, very stylish, with this tuxedo jacket on, and tight pants, and does this scene. She turns around, and drops the jacket, and is wearing a scoop shirt that goes all the way down to the small of her back, and whips out the cigarette. It was amazing. I was like, This woman knows who Spencer Hastings is.”

Pretty Little Liars airs TONIGHT, April 18 @ 8/7c on Freeform.

Pictured: Troian, Lucy Hale, Shay Mitchell, and Ashley Benson out and about on Monday (April 17) in New York City.

Ashley Benson Was The One Who Suggested The 'Pretty Little Liars' Finger Tattoos

Ashley Benson Was The One Who Suggested The 'Pretty Little Liars' Finger Tattoos

When the Pretty Little Liars cast all got tattoos together to commemorate the end of filming, we all thought it was such a cool idea — and it turns out Ashley Benson is to thank for it!

“None of them were really down with the idea at first,” she admits in a new interview. “Then as we were closing, I was like, ‘I’m getting a tattoo, so whoever wants to join.’ At which point everyone decided to be onboard.”

Ashley adds about the design of that tattoos which all the girls have on their index fingers: “I thought, let’s just get the first letter of our names — or people got first and last, whatever.

“They wanted to put it on their ankle and all these places, and I love finger tattoos, and thought it’d be cool if we did the shush thing.”

“So it kind of worked out really well, and everyone got it there.”

Ashley is pictured below running some errands on Thursday (April 13) before going out to dinner with some friends later in Los Angeles.
