Janel Parrish Is Proud To Play An Asian-American Sandy in 'Grease'

Janel Parrish just revealed her super secret new role — and it’s everyone’s dream role!

The former Pretty Little Liars actress, who can’t get anyone to spell her name right at Starbucks, will be playing Sandy in Grease in Toronto!

“I’m beyond excited to return to the stage,” Janel shared in a release. “Sandy has been a dream role of mine since I was a child, and a role I never thought I would be asked to play.

“As an Asian American woman, I’m thrilled to be able to say I can play Sandy.”


When JJJ spoke with Janel recently, she was revealed that she’s always been a Broadway baby.

“[It was a] dream come true,” she told us about showcasing her singing skills on PLL. “I’ve always been a Broadway baby so to be able to share that on our show…awesome.”

Katie Findlay and Dylan S. Wallach also star in the Toronto production.

Starbucks Keeps Misspelling Janel Parrish's Name

Starbucks Keeps Misspelling Janel Parrish's Name

Janel Parrish probably can’t help but laugh at all the ways Starbucks misspells her name.

The former Pretty Little Liars actress shared two of the misspellings on her Instagram Stories, and one is absolutely horrible.

“Ginel,” the star shared the snap from yesterday’s coffee (August 9) pick up, adding that it was one of Starbucks “worst yet” and we absolutely agree.

We get that Janel can be spelled many, many ways, but Ginel? No.

At least today’s (August 10) is a little better — Jannelle — but still, it’s not her name.

TELL JJJ: Have you ever had your name misspelled like this?

Janel Parrish To Star With Lana Condor in 'To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before'

Janel Parrish is going to be in possibly the coolest new movie!

The former Pretty Little Liars actress will star alongside Lana Condor, Noah Centineo, Israel Broussard and Descendants 2‘s Anna Cathcart in To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.

The flick is based off of Jenny Han‘s novel of the same name and also features Andrew “King Bach” Bachelor and John Corbett.

The film centers on Lara Jean Covey (Condor), who has always imagined her life as a fantasy but has never let herself feel anything real.

She starts her junior year content with spending lunch in the library reading, but instead Lara Jean’s love life goes from imaginary to out of control when her secret box of love letters is unexpectedly delivered to the various boys she’s had crushes on throughout her life.

To avoid confronting them, Lara Jean fakes a relationship with one of them, but starts to realize that she may not be pretending and something good may have come from these letters after all.

Janel will star as Margot Covey, who is described as “an adult in a teenager’s body.”

As the oldest child, she’s always taken care of Lara Jean and Kitty, but now she’s off to college in Scotland. While she’s there, it becomes harder to provide the sisterly advice she’s known for, and begins to worry when Lara Jean calls her less and less.

Noah will play Peter Kavinsky, Israel is Josh, and Anna is Kitty Covey.

Mona Vanderwaal Had The Perfect Ending on 'Pretty Little Liars' Series Finale, Janel Parrish Says

Mona Vanderwaal Had The Perfect Ending on 'Pretty Little Liars' Series Finale, Janel Parrish Says

Mona Vanderwaal has been through it all on Pretty Little Liars — so the fact that she got a sweet little ending was perfect.

Janel Parrish spoke to EW after the finale about Mona’s happily ever after — moving to Paris and winning the game.

“I thought it was a perfect ending for everybody, but especially for Mona,” Janel says. “…She moved to Paris, which she’s always been obsessed with, she has her love and her dolls, and literally her dolls in her dollhouse underneath her shop.”

She also spoke on Mona’s journey through the final season and finally being able to say that Mona is one of the Liars.

“We saw her struggle a little bit with the dark side when she was playing the game,” Janel shared. “She definitely had a mental breakdown and a lot of that was due to her guilt from killing Charlotte and not ever telling anybody that secret. The game plays with you in so many ways and I think that’s how it played with Mona was it got her to that breaking point of her guilt.”

She adds, “I do think that she left her evil ways and switched over to a Liar, in my opinion, after the dollhouse, having that traumatic experience with all of them.”

What Happened To Mike & Mona on 'Pretty Little Liars'? Janel Parrish Dishes!

While we’re all fans of Ezria and Haleb and Spoby and Emison, there’s one Pretty Little Liars ‘ship that always gets brushed aside — Mike and Mona!

While we’re not expecting a miracle or anything on seeing the two together and happy on the series finale tonight, JJJ sure does miss this coupling — and Janel Parrish does too.

“I loved Mike and Mona!” Janel told us in our interview with her, but figures that the two have probably moved on by now.

She adds, “It’s 5 years later. It’s sad, but I think they moved on. Mona’s got more important things on her mind than romance!”

Tune into the Pretty Little Liars series finale TONIGHT @ 8PM ET/PT on Freeform.

Pretty Little Liars' Janel Parrish Actually Auditioned For This Character (Exclusive)

Pretty Little Liars' Janel Parrish Actually Auditioned For This Character (Exclusive)

We know that pretty much all the main cast of Pretty Little Liars didn’t audition for the roles they ended up with — and Janel Parrish didn’t either.

JJJ spoke to the star, who plays Mona Vanderwaal on the show, and she revealed that she didn’t go out for Mona at all — it was actually Spencer Hastings!

“I got a few callbacks and then didn’t book it,” she remembers. “I remember being super bummed because I loved the script. But, about a month later they called me in for Mona and that was it.”

Even though she wasn’t cast as Spencer, Janel isn’t upset at all, because Mona is perfect for her.

“I’m super happy about that, though,” she adds. “I fell in love with playing Mona.”
