Warning: This article may contain spoilers for season 5 of Pretty Little Liars.
A new Pretty Little Liar is coming to Rosewood, if the latest reports are true, and this new cast addition has a talent for dancing. Maddie Ziegler, known for her appearances on Lifetime’s long-running Dance Moms series, is going to be appearing in Pretty Little Liars, when the show’s fifth season commences in June.
Maddie Ziegler was also credited for her appearance in Sia’s “Chandelier” music video.
The 12-year-old dancer has already been credited on IMDb in at least one Pretty Little Liars episode, entitled “She’s No Angel,” but this is not news to Instagram followers of Ashley Benson and Troian Bellisario. Both Pretty Little Liars actresses have posted pictures of themselves chumming up to Ziegler and it seems that they’re helping young Ms. Maddie explore her creepy side.
Let’s just hope Troian Bellisario and Ms. Ziegler were on the set of Pretty Little Liars when this particularly creepy photo was taken.
Ashley Benson and Maddie are all smiles, but Ms. Ziegler’s dress leaves her looking like she just crawled out of a fresh grave.
Looking so disheveled, what could Maddie’s Pretty Little Liars‘ role be? Could Ms. Ziegler be the next to be returning from the dead? On the other hand, she does look like a young Troian Bellisario. Could Maddie be featured in a Pretty Little Liars flashback, perhaps one revealing what turned Charles into Big A?
Not everyone on the Pretty Little Liars cast is excited about those clue-filled flashbacks.
“The return of the infamous yellow shirt!” Lucy Hale teased. “I always ask Sasha, ‘What do you think of that shirt?’ And she’s like, ‘I’m definitely over it by now.’ Poor thing, she’s always in the flashbacks, so she gets to wear one outfit, and all the other girls are wearing five an episode.”
As the June premiere of Pretty Little Liars draws nearer, more is being revealed and an interview with Lucy Hale has given fans an even bigger glimpse into what can be expected with that time jump that has opened up so many possibilities.
Have you seen the teaser yet?
“It’s just cool to see how they’ve evolved. From my knowledge, they’re going to go their own separate ways for a little bit,” Hale told People. “We still have a season and a half to go, so I’m sure there’s going to be more turmoil and craziness and everything.”
It has also been revealed that, while Charles may be Big A, there is still one last top dog to be unmasked. Will the time jump finally lead to the mysterious Über A, or does Charles yet hold the key to that final Pretty Little Liars mystery?
What’s your theory on Maddie Ziegler’s Pretty Little Liars role?
