Ashley Benson

Ashley Benson stars as Hanna Marin in Pretty Little Liars, who became the school's new it girl after Alison disappeared. But being at the top of the social ladder is not all it is cracked up to be, especially when someone is out there reminding Hanna of how things used to be.

Born and raised in California, Benson developed a passion for theater at the age of 3, began acting when she was 9 – working mostly in commercials – and then quickly made the transition into film and television. Most recently in television, she was a series regular on ABC's Eastwick, playing Rebecca Romijn's daughter, and she starred in the Lifetime Television movie Fab Five: The Texas Cheerleader Scandal. Her additional television credits include appearances on The District, The West Wing, Scrubs and The O.C. Previously, Benson spent three years on NBC's Days of Our Lives, playing Abigail Deveraux.

Benson made her feature film debut in 13 Going on 30, starring Jennifer Garner. She was also the lead in Bring It On: In It to Win It, as the fresh-faced captain of the West High cheerleading team. In 2009, she was seen in the independent film Bart Got a Room, opposite William H. Macy.

Benson lives in the Los Angeles area with Olive, her Maltese Shih Tzu. In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, singing, the beach, the movies and watching the Los Angeles Lakers — she's a huge fan.
