We have showrunner Marlene King to thank for the awesomeness that is Pretty Little Liars. She is an integral part of every aspect of the making of this TV show, which is why it is so much fun to ask her questions about what it’s like behind-the-scenes! One fan recently took to Twitter to ask Marlene who she thinks is the funniest cast member. What did Marlene say?


“The @ashbenzo always makes me laugh,” Marlene responded, diplomatically implying that humor is subjective and others might find other cast members the funniest. We’ve always gotten the impression that Marlene and Ashley Benson (Hanna) have the same sense of humor given their adorable online interaction. Earlier this year, Ashley snuck into Marlene’s office and took to Instagram with the evidence: “Taking over @imarleneking desk,” Ash captioned the photo of herself, sitting at Marlene’s desk.

The showrunner and her actress seemed to have a grand old time hanging in New Orleans while filming Ashley’s guest appearance on PLL failed spin-off Ravenswood. Tyler Blackburn (Caleb) shared this photo of the two as “Siamese twins.” And Ashley kept the Internet apprised of the daily walks she and Marlene took together while she was visiting. Yep, these two are buddies.

Who do you think the funniest cast member is? Sound off in the comments below!
