We caught up with the 27-year-old actress about her recent Teen Choice Award win, all things Pretty Little Liars, and what’s next for her. Check it:
JustJaredJr.com: Congrats on winning Choice TV Villain at the TCAs! How does it feel to have the title back?
Janel Parrish: Thank you! It’s so amazing…it’s my third win and I honestly am so grateful the fans have taken to Mona as much as they have. What can I say, playing a villain is too much fun!
JJJ: Do you consider Mona a true villain or is she just misunderstood?
JP: I think she has had her moments. I think she was always misunderstood, which turned her into a villain in some ways…ultimately, Mona does what she needs to do to get what she wants. If that makes her a villain sometimes, so be it ;)
JJJ: She’s been trying to stay on the good side of the Liars lately, but it seems fans will always question her real motives. Is it fair to be suspicious of her?
JP: Always! I think that’s what makes her character fun…the “is she or isn’t she” of it all. This season though, I really think Mona is proving herself to be an asset and friend to the liars. She has been wronged just as much as the others at this point, and she has had enough.
Pretty Little Liars airs Tuesdays @ 8PM on Freeform.
