Ashley Benson is definitely not in Rosewood anymore! 

The 23-year-old Pretty Little Liars star is currently filming an indie flick in New York City, and while we don't know much about Ashley's new role, we do know two things: one, she's playing a character named Emma, and two, Emma spends a lot of time in her underwear

"First scene of the day and I get to lay n bed. Not bad," Ashley tweeted on December 9 from the set of the unnamed indie film. On November 30, Ashley posted this pic of herself looking sullen in a long parka along with the caption, “Meet ‘Emma’ can't wait for y'all to see my next film.” She doesn’t give us anything else to go on, but it seems she will be going dark for the film — just look at those brown locks! Based on her outfit  a white tee, blue hoodie, jeans, and a parka it seems like Emma will have a much more practical closet than Hanna Marin. 

After the critical success of Ashley's breakout film Spring Breakers, in which Ashley played college-girl-gone-bad Brit, we're excited to see Ash take on another challenging role. As much as we love Pretty Little Liars, we want to see our liars break out of Rosewood from time to time and pursue their passions. 

Check out a scantily clad Ashley on set of her indie flick below.
