Celebuzz caught up with “Pretty Little Liars” actress Lucy Hale at this weekend’s MTV Movie Awards, where she said she was more than game for the sexy role. “I just finished the first [book]—I’m speechless,” she said. “I think every girl on the carpet wants to play [Ana]! That would be freaking awesome. I’m really curious to see how they’re going to turn it into a film.”
When asked who she envisioned as Ana’s damaged billionaire boyfriend, Lucy—like many fans of the best-selling novel—picked “Vampire Diaries” star Ian Somerhalder.
“That’s a tough role to play, you have to be sexy but approachable,” she explained.
Speculation as to who will take on the role of virginal college student Ana has run rampant, with names like Nina Dobrev and Kristen Stewart (whose “Twilight” character Bella was the inspiration for Ana) in the mix. In fact, Lucy’s “PLL” co-star Ashley Benson went on the record just last month with her interest in playing the heroine. Could casting come down to two pretty little liars?
Which “PLL” star would you give the role to? Any other actresses at the top of your casting wish list? Sound off in the comments and on Twitter!
