Lucy Hale Was The Only Star Who Didn't Audition For 'Pretty Little Liars'

Some actors don’t even have to audition for roles on television shows or even movies, and Lucy Hale is one of them.

The actress, who plays Aria Montgomery on Pretty Little Liars, didn’t actually have to audition at all.

“She was coming off of Privileged and everybody wanted to do a TV show with her,” showrunner I. Marlene King shared with Variety. “I grabbed a coffee with her … and she had read the script and she loved it, and she wanted to play Hanna and I didn’t think she was a Hanna; I thought she was an Aria.”

She adds, “I said, ‘Go home and read it again.’ She read it again and she chem[istry] read for both roles with a couple of guys, and once she started doing her scenes, she’s like, ‘You’re right. I’m Aria.’”

And that’s how we got our Aria.
