Spoiler: Shay Says Emily Will Continue to Have Love Interests (Plural)
Shay Mitchell wants you to know that just because you’ve read the Pretty Little Liars books, doesn’t mean you know what’s going to happen in the second part of the first season of the show. Shay opens up and says that everyone will be surprised. “We’ve added some twists and turns, some new characters, and some different storylines,” she tells ClevverTV. So, even if you’ve read the books over and over, you still have plenty of reason to tune in, besides just to see what the girls will be wearing on each episode.
Unfortunately for us, Shay isn’t willing to share many secrets about what happens to her character, Emily, except that, “There are just some crazy things that happen to her.” We like crazy! But is it crazy in terms of her relationship with Maya? Or crazy in terms of finding out who “A” is? Well, she does claim that she’ll continue to have “love interests,” emphasizing the “s” at the end of “interest,” which makes us believe that both Maya and Toby may remain in Emily’s love life.
We get some more juicy tidbits from Shay in the video interview, including the fact that she originally auditioned for the role of Spencer on PLL. We’re pretty sure Troian Bellisario was born to play the role of Spencer and Shay of Emily, so we’re incredibly glad things worked out the way they did.
