Here is an interview with Shay (Emily Fields) and Troian (Spencer Hastings) from TeenTelevision.com!
TeenTelevision: Tell us what you can tell us without getting in trouble with your bosses. We know we pick up with where last season left off and we’re wondering about Ian’s fate. What else?
Shay: Yes. I guess the big thing is just finding out what really happened to Ian. Is it he dead? Is he alive? And, if so, how did he manage that?
TeenTelevision: We know a therapist is coming into the mix so are the girls going to maybe clash over what to tell he and maybe to reveal anything to her?
Troian: Definitely. I think when you’ve all shared a traumatic experience but you all have very different opinions on where you stand, how far you are into wanting to let it go or wanting to rehash it? Doing something like therapy together is a really stifling experience. And especially because the girls have so much to lose and so many secrets with each other. They have to work through that. Or decide if they’re going to let that go.
TeenTelevision: What sort of new things are happening for each of your characters?
Shay: I would say that Emily is moving. She’s packing up. I think, with her, it’s always been divide and conquer. She’s kind of wanting to separate the girls and give them alone time to kind of mess with them individually. So they don’t have their group of girls to fall back on for a little bit. So, where is she going? Is it Texas? I don’t know. I do know but I can’t say but she’ll be connected even if she moves. “A” still wants her in the game.
TeenTelevision: Troian, Spencer was in a car accident with her sister. What’s up with that?
Troian: Spencer wasn’t really hurt and she was more concerned about her sister being pregnant. So when you come back, since it is literally moments later and we’ve seen my brother-in-law try to kill me, the next time I see my sister it’s obviously, ‘Is the baby okay? How do I tell you that your husband that you think is missing actually is a serial killer and I would rather he dead?’ You know it’s a really fun, family episode (we laugh).
TeenTelevision: As you guys mature and the audience mature as the show goes on, is the show going to reflect that? Is it going to get even more edgy as time goes by?
Troian: I certainly hope so.
Shay: I think so. We’ve always pushed it a little bit. Pushed a little bit. It’s a lot more than what anybody really expected. They’re always like, ‘Oh my gosh, but you guys are on ABC Family. You’re doing this, this, and that’. I think we’ve even pushed it a little bit more for season two. And I think for season three and hopefully continuing, it will continue to push it as our audience matures and as the girls do.
TeenTelevision: What is it like off set when you guys are not filming? Do you ever pull pranks on each other? I think I hear Ashley is the real prankster.
Shay: We actually do hang out on set. We’re hanging out after this. To be honest, we are all really close friends. I think as far as prankster goes, jokester, whatever you want to call it, I think that would kind of be Ashley. She likes to make things fun on set. So she’s always joking around. And we’re always like, ‘What’s Ashley up to?’
Shay: Well, recently we were in the hair and makeup room and she pretended that our lovely hair lady burnt her. And so she was freaking out. I was there and I was freaking out. I’m like, ‘Oh, my gosh. Oh my, gosh. Ashley are you okay?’ And then she looks up and she’s like, ‘Ha, ha’. So, yes. Ashley is definitely the prankster when it comes to us four girls.
TeenTelevision: How is Shay’s love life going to develop?
Shay: At the beginning, obviously, Emily was discovering who she was. And figuring that part out. And now that she’s become a lot more aware of what she likes and just who she is, she’s just kind of wanting to test the water out with these wonderful different relationships that she has. And unfortunately Maya got sent away. But now Paige and Samara are in the picture. But then again with Emily moving I don’t know if she really wants to start anything up that’s going to be serious that she’ll have to break again.
So, only 3 DAYS LEFT, little liars, until the world premiere of season two! I can’t wait! And, if you CAN wait, then you are CRAZY!!! 😉
