Ashley Benson Wins Choice Summer TV Actress, Thanks Fans — “Love You All!”

Have you heard the exciting news? Ashley Benson won a Teen Choice Award for her role of Hanna Marin on Pretty Little Liars! Ash was awarded the surfboard for “Choice Summer TV Actress” at last night’s awards, but was, sadly, not there to collect it. Luckily, she took to Twitter to let her fans know her reaction.

“Just heard I won!! Thanks for voting guys. Love you all :)),” Ash tweeted after hearing the news of her TCA win. We were just as enthusiastic about Ashley’s win. Every half-season, Pretty Little Liars tends to give one Liar a bit more plot to work with. This summer belongs to Ashley as Hanna struggles to deal with Alison’s return to Rosewood, turning to alcohol, Caleb, and shoplifting to deal with the confusion. And Ashley is making it not only believable, but compelling and sympathetic. We can’t wait to see how her summer storyline concludes.

Of course, Ashley wasn’t the only PLLer to take home a surfboard at the 2014 TCAs. In addition to the award for “Choice TV Show: Drama,” Ian Harding (Ezra Fitz), Lucy Hale (Aria Montgomery), Tyler Blackburn (Caleb Rivers) and Sasha Pieterse (Alison DiLaurentis) all walked away with surfboards. We’re going to go ahead and assume they’re all surfing the waves together right now.

Catch the next episode of Pretty Little Liars on August 12, 2014 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC Family.
