As massive Pretty Little Liars fans, we were more than a little excited to have Lucy Hale share some of her first times with us... Taylor Miller/BuzzFeed ...and, naturally, many of those firsts had to do with all-things PLL: View this video on YouTube youtube.com Here's everything she spilled about her time on the show — from her 'A' theory to some of her best PLL memories: 1. Lucy really thought Aria was going to be 'A' (aka, the big PLL villain) the whole time...

I thought for the whole eight seasons that they were eventually going to make Aria 'A'. There were so many things that, like, led up to it. She was always missing in action. I was wrong." 2. ...and she wishes the writers went in that direction: Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF BuzzFeed "I wanted Aria to be 'A'. I think we all wanted to be the bad guy." 3. Her iconic "shh" face from the Pretty Little Liars poster was a last-minute idea from the photographer: Freeform "We were at a photoshoot — 12-hour day, and we were exhausted — and the photographer was like, 'Lucy, shush the camera' and it was the last frame. It was literally the last photo...and they ended up using it for the poster." 4. She and Ashley Benson used to audition for the same roles a a lot before getting cast together on Pretty Little Liars: Jon Kopaloff / FilmMagic "Ashley Benson and I used to audition against each other before Pretty Little Liars all the time." 5. Her first memory of shooting Pretty Little Liars is a cold one: Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF BuzzFeed "We were shooting the pilot, it was in Vancouver, and it was the dead of winter and we had very minimal clothing on. Our mouths were numb. And we were just trying to heat up our mouths so we could actually say the words. I think it was the scene where the bodies were being pulled out at the end. Like, the very last scene of the pilot. For some reason that is my only memory of back then." 6. The first PLL co-star she'd call to hang out with right now is Janel Parrish.

Lucy's partnering with Cheerios to raise money for the ASPCA through April 15 — get more info here.
