Actress Lucy Hale has been around for quite some time, making her name on the small screen in a number of bold roles. However, it was really her character Aria Montgomery on Pretty Little Liars that cemented her status as one of the most sought-after actresses in America’s TV industry.
June 14 sees the Memphis-born little lady turn 27-years-old so in celebration of all things Lucy, why not get to know her a little bit more with the following 9 facts about her personal life:
1. He name is actually Karen
Yet, the actress has gone by Lucy ever since she was born. Lucille is her middle name.
2. She’s appeared in How I Met Your Mother, The O.C., Drake & Josh and Wizards of Waverly Place
Naturally, that was all before Pretty Little Liars.
3. She had a major crush on one of her PLL co-stars
Unfortunately for us, she has always refused to reveal the name of the guy in question, saying:
“In life, in general I’m not one to fall to pieces over a guy or give up anything; I’m very headstrong. I’m very focused on what I do and very independent, but there was this certain guy that I was acting like an idiot around. I was fumbling over my words, I was stuttering, I couldn’t focus, I couldn’t look him in the eye. I was just crushing so hard on him.”
Any ideas on who it might be?

There were some things that I was so embarrassed to be reading out loud, but it’s one of those things where you have to commit wholeheartedly or you’re going to make a fool of yourself.”
