South African Sweetheart

You would never be able to tell on Pretty Little Liars (which is set in Pennsylvania), but Sasha Pieterse was actually born in Johannesburgh, South Africa on February 17th, 1996. The reason there's no trace of that distinct South African accent when she speaks is becaue she moved to the the US when she was just 3-years-old. Sasha was born into a talented family, her parents are both professional dancers who perform all over the world. Sasha used to love getting on stage with her parents, and by the age of 4 she had already snagged a modelling and acting contract!

Small Screen Success

Sasha started making waves in the acting world as soon as she started out, she played Buffy on A Family Affair and had guest starring roles on Stargate SG-1, but it was performance as a terminal cancer patient on House M.D. that garnered her a daytime Emmy Award nomination. That same year she also appeared in [kwlink 5718]The Adventures of Shark Boy and Lava Girl[/kwlink] as Marissa The Ice Princess. She also appeared in Good Luck Chuck and Wanted.

Sasha has released singles from her upcoming album this year

Pretty Little Liars

Before landing the role of Alison DiLaurentis on Pretty Little Liars, Sasha had a recurring role on Without a Trace and was in 8 episodes of the show Heroes as a girl with the power to spontaneously combust anything she put her mind to. In 2009 though, Sasha landed the coveted role of Alison, the most popular girl in Rosewood High whose disappearance and death spark her friends to discover that she was keeping an endless amount of secrets that lead to her death.

I guess it was because I wasn't a big of a fan of the Original Trilogy as I am of the  The Amazing Spiderman. I also prefer the Amazing Spiderman because he actually made the web-shooters, and it really showed how smart he was. I mean, no offence, but in the first films everyone said he was really smart but we never got to see him do something genuis.I'm scared too! I don't want her to die either!Electro seems like sorta a drama queen. I mean, have you seen the trailer where he got all mad because Spiderman didn't remember him? :confused Bit of an over-reaction! He's a changed man :) And by change, I mean way more evil :| I suppose so. But, not trying to sound offense, I think Spiderman is quite old so I think that maybe that's why I prefer the Amazing Spiderman. BUT I still love the original movies. Also I think it's because Spiderman showed a lot of romance compared to the amazing spiderman. Yeah I know, the web shooters are awesome! MY GWEN BABY! *dramatically, and hysterically sobs* I know right? He goes all ninja-style and it's funny when he's like, "YOU LIED TO ME!" in a overly dramatic way. The best moments in the trailer is when Peter's aunt complains about the laundry and he says he was washing the American flag. lol xD
