Pretty Little Liars Stars Who Originally Auditioned for Other Roles: WHO Could Have Been Hanna?!
It's hard to imagine our fave Pretty Little Liars characters being played by anyone other than the people who have been cast in each role, but in an alternative universe there's a PLL that looks very different.
See, it turns out a number of the stars we've come to know and love in certain parts originally auditioned for other roles. It's fun to think about the PLL that could have been, so we've rounded up our favorite "you originally auditioned for what role!?" stories here.
Lucy Hale (Aria): Crazy as it sounds, Lucy didn't just audition to play Aria— she auditioned for Hanna (Ashley Benson), too! Fortunately, the people in charge of casting clearly realized Aria was the role for her.
Brant Daugherty (Noel Kahn): It sounds like the PLL casting department knew they wanted to use Brant, but took a while to find the right role for him. He originally auditioned for Ezra (Ian Harding), and then Toby (Keegan Allen). He was turned down for both parts, but third time's the charm, and he wound up as awesomely creepy Noel Kahn.
Bianca Lawson (Maya St. Germain): Bianca was perfect as free-spirited, dearly-departed Maya, but she originally auditioned to play Hanna. We guess the snarky It-girl was a popular character to try out for! Somehow, after seeing Bianca as the artsy Maya, we can't imagine her as the much-ditzier Hanna.
