Pretty Little Liars Ashley Benson & Troian Bellisario Are Possibly Coming Back To Direct The Perfectionists
Hey, “Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists” fans. We’ve got some possible, exciting news for you guys in this report. Recently, the folks over at Entertainment Tonight were able to get a hold of one of The Perfectionists and Pretty Little Liars main stars Sasha Pieterse aka Alison Dilaurentis while on the red carpet at the 2nd Annual Freeform Summit in sunny Los Angeles, California.
During their interview, Sasha revealed that her former castmates Ashley Benson aka Hanna Marin and Troian Bellisario aka Spencer Hastings are definitely interested in contributing to the new Perfectionists spin off through the director’s chair in season 2! However, there will need to be a season 2 for that to happen.
Sasha stated, “I think Ashley Benson and Troian Bellisario are going to try to direct next season, which would be amazing, if we get a next season. We love to have whoever on the show. Whoever wants to join us.”
After that, Sasha revealed that Troian probably would’ve directed some of the first season, but her schedule was super busy. She just had a baby and what not. Sasha explained, “You know what the biggest problem is? Which is the best problem to have in Hollywood? Scheduling. Everyone is so busy, which is such a blessing for everybody. I’m so happy for our cast and our crew. We’ve just always been supportive of each other, but that has been our biggest challenge is scheduling. Troian had a baby, she couldn’t direct our first season.”
After that, Sasha went on to say very good things about her Pretty Little Liars fans. She also said that The Perfectionists seems fresh and new. Even Mona and Alison’s characters seem new in a lot of ways. Sasha stated, “I think that’s what’s so special about our PLL fans. They’re so loyal, and we do get to connect with them all over the world.
But I think our new viewers are also really excited, which makes me happy because it means that we’ve accomplished what we’ve been working so hard for, and I think this feels like a brand new fresh show. It doesn’t feel like a spinoff. It doesn’t feel redundant. Even our characters that are from PLL, Mona and Alison. They’re brand new in a lot of ways.”
Sasha mentioned that she’s gotten along very well with The Perfectionists castmembers: Sofia Carson, Sydney Park and more. Sasha said, “It doesn’t always happen that way, especially the second time around. I pinch myself. It’s such a great position to be in.” She did mention that she had to teach her new co-stars a few things about keeping plotline secrets.
She revealed that she told them,”‘Don’t say anything!’This is a little different because we actually have a lot more to be able to explain to the fans, which I think is really great. We can have more conversations, and we just weren’t able to do it before. I think just the fact that we know how PLL operates and what we want to accomplish was really what we needed. Everybody just knew their space and were just as excited to explore their characters. We’ve definitely become a family.”
