On being best friends with Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen: “When I was five years old, my best friends were Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen because we lived across the street from each other. I just knew them as the girls across the street. And I remember the first time I was playing with them and something happened and I realized these aren’t normal kids. They’re treated differently.”
On who is most unlike their PLL character: “Shay [Mitchell], in terms of being sweet and sensitive â€“ she’s like Emily. But Shay comes to set in the morning, it’ll be seven in the morning, she’ll come in heels, skinny jeans, the most gorgeous, glamorous top and her hair is like a Pantene Pro-V ad. Then she’ll come film her scene wearing these dirty converse and jeans as Emily â€“ which is like what I arrived in. And I’m like ‘Who are you?’ It’s so funny to see her kick off her sneakers at the end of the day and go home in heels.”
On knowing guys better than girls: “I grew up with brothers. Girls terrified me. If a boy was mad at you, he hit you or he’d yell at you. I’m thinking about my brothers. Boys didn’t go around just hitting me. But it was easy. With girls all of a sudden she’ll tell you ‘That skirt looks ugly on you.’ And you’re like ‘Oh you’re mad at me! I have to figure out what I’ve done.’ I had one really good girl friend all through high school. It’s funny, being on a show that’s so girl heavy I’m enjoying having girl friends for the first time. It’s really cool.”
