It’s not just Troian Bellisario that wants to hop behind the camera again for PLL spinoff, The PerfectionistsAshley Benson also wants a turn!

Showrunner I. Marlene King chatted with ET over the weekend about the OG Liars getting involved in the spinoff series.

“We would love it,” she shared about Troian getting a chance to direct. “Actually, Ashley Benson is really interested in directing an episode too, so that would be great if we could figure out all that stuff.”

Marlene added, “She’s a baller. [All of the OG PLLs] are smart — they all could direct if they want.”

She also revealed that all of the girls – and guys – are welcome in Beacon Heights, where the series will take place.

“They’re always welcome. We would always want to find a place for them,” Marlene says. “I think there’s just such a seamless sort of transition to this new show that it’s always possible for people to just come in and sort of drop in and visit us.”

Ashley Benson Dishes On Her Love For NYC Fashion

Ashley Benson Dishes On Her Love For NYC Fashion

Ashley Benson will always be a New York City style girl, not Los Angeles.

The former Pretty Little Liars actress opened up in a new interview with Fashionista about her chic street style, and why she’ll never be as comfortable in Los Angeles as she is in NYC.

“When I was in LA, I dressed like I was in New York all the time, so moving here just allowed me to get more into the New York vibe with faux fur and cool jackets,” Ashley says.

One closet staple that she gets to wear more of? Her leather jacket: “I can always wear my leather jacket, which I wore almost every day in LA — even if it was 90 degrees outside, I’d still be in a leather jacket.”

She continues, “Here, I wear cool, heavy jackets, turtlenecks and sneakers because I’m walking around a lot. I like Converse or Nikes. I’m mostly in workout clothes when I’m in LA or jeans and a t-shirt. My style is not that fun to talk about. I wish it was.”

Ashley also dishes on just why NYC fits her more than anywhere else in the world.

“I think New York style is so cool and effortless,” she shares. “One of my favorite things is walking around and seeing everybody’s style — people are very fashion forward here. Brooklyn surprisingly is super-cool and young and has great fashion. The East Village has great fashion.”

Ashley adds, “Everywhere. I feel like everyone is on-point in New York, even if you’re getting groceries. Everything looks chicer here. It’s just the attitude, too. I feel like New Yorkers are just very cool and calm. Not trying too hard. That’s what it is: Just super-effortless, and it just makes everything look that much better.”

Ashley Benson Boards New Movie 'Her Smell'

Ashley Benson Boards New Movie 'Her Smell'

Ashley Benson has kept a low profile since the end of Pretty Little Liars last year – but we feel it’s all about to change really soon.

The 28-year-old actress has joined Her Smell, opposite Elisabeth Moss, Deadline is reporting.

The flick stars Elisabeth as Becky Something, a self-destructive punk rocker who is struggling with sobriety, all while trying to recapture the creative inspiration that led her band to success.

While we don’t have any information about Ashley‘s character, we’re kind of thinking that Cindy Ultra has something to do with it all.

If you remember, Ashley launched a debut single under the stage name, which was tied to an untitled movie at that time.

This isn’t a confirmation that it is, but just a thought.
