Janel Parrish Wants Women to Embrace Who They Are

Janel Parrish, Mona on PLL, talked to SheKnows about women embracing themselves and not trying to fit into a mold.

Janel knows that women struggle with image and wanting to be thinner and more beautiful.  Janel admires Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss in The Hunger Games) who has spoken up about being herself and women embracing natural sexiness.

Janel has learned to embrace her own flaws.  She hated her cheeks for the longest time because she thinks they are “chubby little chipmunk cheeks”.  She avoided smiling in photos because her two flaws would show (her cheeks and her crooked teeth).  However, now she embraces those flaws because they add character.

Janel also talked about the difficulties of being a mixed race actress in Hollywood.  (Janel’s ethnicity is half Chinese and half Caucasian).  It is easier for Janel to get cast in shows now that she is older and she doesn’t have to fit in a family role.  She didn’t fit into the blonde hair, blue eyed girl next door look. 

Janel thinks Hollywood has now become more colorblind.  She thinks it is wonderful that actresses like Maggie Q (Nikita, Stalker)  “are getting lead roles as a beautiful Asian American actress”.  Janel doesn’t think that would have happened ten years ago.

PLL Season 6 Spoilers: High School Graduation and Time Jump



High school graduation is fast approaching in Rosewood.  Season 6 of Pretty Little Liars will start with the Liars still trapped in the dollhouse, but in ten episodes the Liars will be graduating from high school (by the end of season 6A).  Season 6A will be so condensed that it will take place over the course of three weeks for the Liars, PLL showrunner Marlene King told E! News.

Then there will be a four-year time jump before season 6B starts.  So the Liars will head off to college, but we won’t see it.  Season 6B will start when the girls come back from college. 

With the time jump, the Liars will be experiencing new things.  (A Liar may get married).

Are you excited about the time jump or do you want PLL to show the Liars in college instead of skipping ahead with a four-year time jump?

Although Pretty Little Liars is filmed on the same lot as The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Ashley and Ellen had never met before.  Ashley talked about her nickname Benzo and her dogs.  She also talked a little about PLL.  She loved when Hanna was in prison, since she could dress in an orange jumpsuit with no makeup.


Ellen surprised Ashley with a bike, since Ashley wasn’t able to convince the PLL producers to get her a golf cart.

PLL Spoilers Season 6: Charles Will Punish Liars

http://whoisontheateam.tumblr.com/post/114568893662

The Liars will suffer the consequences of trying to escape the dollhouse when Pretty Little Liars returns for season 6.

Janel Parrish, Mona on PLL, told The Hollywood Reporter what to expect for PLL season 6A.  “Basically, the girls will be trying to escape. They will be punished for trying to get away from Charles, and it won't be pretty. I know eventually that they will get out [of the dollhouse] but with some serious emotional scars. The season will be pretty dark. Throughout the season, we'll be finding out more about what happened to these girls while they were in the dollhouse and who exactly is Charles and why is he doing this”.

Mona’s punishment may be different from what Charles does to the Liars, since Charles favors Alison.  Janel told Entertainment Weekly that Mona “will be treated differently because she is [Charles’] favorite,” but “[Mona] will ultimately still be punished”.

In “Welcome to the Dollhouse”, Mona described the punishment she already suffered in the dollhouse.  (No food and water, blasting the siren and playing a recording of Mona’s mom crying at her funeral).  What do you think Charles is going to do to the girls this time?

Brendan Robinson on ‘Bones’


Brendan Robinson (Lucas on PLL) is guest starring on Fox’s Bones
