If the adorable dance videos are anything to go by, Ashley Benson (Hanna) has wanted to be a performer since she was a little girl. And the Pretty Little Liars star didn’t lose any ambition as a teenager, either. Check out this home video of Ash acting out a scene from Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.
The short video has Ashley channeling her inner Amber Tamblyn as she acts out one of Tibby’s monologues from 2005’s Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Though teenaged Ash’s performance can be a bit much at times, you can tell she has a lot of raw talent. And the peace sign she gives at the end is pretty adorable. It’s no surprise this gal went on to big things.
It’s pretty fitting that Ashley chose to act out a scene from Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. The series shares a lot of themes with Pretty Little Liars: four girls, best friends and trying to find their places in the world. Sure, there’s more murdering in PLL, and more pants-sharing in Sisterhood, but it’s hard to believe the Liars haven’t shared pantalones at some point or another, right?
And let’s not forget that Ash’s PLL co-star Lucy Hale starred in 2008’s Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 as Effie, Lena’s (Alexis Bledel) little sister. Just two years later Ash would get her big break alongside Lucy on a little show called Pretty Little Liars.
