 As you may know, Pretty Little Liars star Ashley Benson has been kicking it in New York City during her filming hiatus from PLL to work on a new indie flick. Her co-star? Orange is the New Black hunk Matt McGorry. Are these two playing an on-screen item?

“Thanks a lot @mattmcgorryofficial,” Ash captioned her recent Instagram video, which has a dark-haired, spectacle-wearing Ashley complaining about how Matt made her sick: “I would like to point out that Matt McGorry got me sick, so he’s going to get more sick later today,” she says, mock-serious as Matt (or someone we presume is Matt) chuckles in the background. Um, we think we just started on-screen shipping these two together. Because this video is pretty darn adorable, and Matt’s face isn’t even in it.

We’re guessing that Ash’s comments mean that she and the Matt have been smooching for their roles. We don’t know much about the upcoming indie film, other than the fact that it’s filming in New York and Ashley’s character’s name is Emma. On December 9, Ash shared a photo of herself as Emma and stripped down to her underwear, captioning it: "First scene of the day and I get to lay n bed. Not bad.” Is Matt in that scene, too? And what exactly is this movie about? The suspense is killing us! Whatever the plot, we’re excited to see Ashley stretch her acting wings. As much as we love Hanna, seeing Ash in Spring Breakers earlier this year was so much fun. We want to see more sides to the young star’s acting personality. Hopefully, Emma gives us that.
