Ever since Pretty Little Liars hit our TV screens four years ago, we’ve been properly obsessed. We're not alone - series four snagged a casual 3.1 million viewers. It’s also the most tweeted about TV show ever – gaining over 30,000 tweets per minute while it's on air. We shoot our fave Liar ‘It girl’ Hanna – played by Ashley - for our August cover in sun-drenched, hipster hang Venice Beach in LA. It’s just up the coast from where she was brought up in Orange County. For her, it’s a rare weekend off from filming PLL. Here's an exclusive peek at what she had to say...

ON PLL GOSSIP...

Well, I’m going through a darker period of Hanna at the moment; she’s going to go through an edgy phase. I’m going to have black hair and she’s going to, like, change clothes and be grungier, which I love! So I’m super excited to see where my storyline goes…

ON HER FANS...

When I went to Europe for the Spring Breakers tour, that was nuts because I also had Selena [Gomez] and Vanessa [Hudgens] with me. It just created a whole craze! I remember being in Paris, and we were at a mall shopping, and we looked out the windows and there were just thousands of people waiting outside. Like we were The Beatles. It was, like, ‘woah, this is crazy’.

ON HER DOG OLIVE...

I love hanging out at home! I have a dog – her name is Olive, and she’s the best thing in the world. She’s like my daughter. So I love hanging out with my dog.

ON FASHION...

It is fun to dress up, but I’m always like, ‘I’m so tired, I just want to put on sweats!’. But, recently, I’ve been trying to dress more girly with the help of my stylist, Jamie Schneider. But, at the moment, I just don’t have the things. I’m more of a laid-back type of person, so I love jeans and a tee!

ON HER FUTURE CAREER...

Film is where I want to head towards, and every year I try. I’d love to do independent films; I think there is more freedom and more of a challenge. Because, on the show, I’ve played the same character for five years, any chance I get to play someone completely different from who I am or what I’ve played before, I’d like to jump on that.
