Troian Bellisario, Shay Mitchell, Sasha Pieterse

Another tormenter has been crossed off the Pretty Little Liars' list, but was she A? The girls certainly think so.

Season 5 of the addictive ABC Family drama picked up immediately after the finale's shooting, with Ezra (Ian Harding) being rushed to the hospital.

"I had doubts about if I was going to be able to do it justice as an actor. I've never had a personal experience with cancer. So, when I auditioned it was sort of like 'the C-word.' I was intimated by the whole idea of cancer and... read more
