“Pretty Little Liars” author Sara Shepard is set to make a cameo on the show in the upcoming episode “The Homecoming Hangover” — watch a sneak peek clip her.
ABC Family told Zap2it several weeks ago about the cameo, teasing that she would have an unfriendly encounter with one of the girls. We now know that girl is Lucy Hale‘s Aria, so Lucy and Sara gave an interview to ABC Family about the upcoming episode.
“It was a lot of fun. I am not an actress,” Sara laughs.
“She needed no help! No lie!” Lucy responds. “We were all just like, ‘She knows what she’s doing.'”
In talking about the casting of the show, Sara says to Lucy, “You’re the perfect Aria. From the books, I am actually most like Aria. At least in high school. I was just over high school and I was kind of artsy.”
When asked if any of the major events of the books are from her real life, Sara laughs — no, she didn’t have a relationship with her teacher, no, she didn’t steal a car. But — “I did steal socks, but I got caught … don’t shoplift anyone, don’t do it! You’re just gonna get caught,” reveals Sara.
And finally, watch the clip of the interview below for a little tease about Sara’s possible return to the show and who A might be…
Sara Shepard’s cameo episode of “Pretty Little Liars” airs Tuesday, July 20 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC Family.
