Lucy Hale says she will never quit Pretty Little Liars, insisting show bosses would have to kill her off to make her leave.

The 25-year-old actress has achieved fame worldwide thanks to her role as Aria Montgomery in the hit US TV show. And Lucy has revealed in a new interview that she would have to be killed off by show bosses if they ever wanted her to leave.

“I’ll ride out Pretty Little Liars until it’s dead because that has been such a launching pad for me and genuinely love and like the people I work with and I love the characters,” she told E! News. “Mainly, I’m just curious to see what happens! Unless they just want to kill me off, other than that, I’m there!”

Fans of the hit programme will know the identity of the girls’ tormentor, ‘A’, was revealed at the end of the fifth season. With the upcoming sixth season, the storyline is being kept well and truly under wraps.

However, Lucy did confirm rumours that leading up to the season finale of the programme, the show will jump forward into the future.

“I don’t know if I’m allowed to say how far into the future we jump, but it’s a significant amount of time,” she said. “You get to see the girls…who they’re dating and how they’ve grown up and I think as an actress, that’s really exciting to play because I’ve been playing 17 for six years and I’m like, ‘I’m almost 10 years older than that!’ So it will be fun to see how she’s evolved.”

Lucy’s insistence that she won’t be leaving Pretty Little Liars comes after Nina Dobrev shocked The Vampire Diaries fans by quitting her own hit programme.

However, pretty brunette Lucy said she can understand the reasoning behind Nina’s decision. “I think everyone’s situation is different,” she said. “She probably has her reasons, which you can’t hate on that. You have to respect that.”

Lucy Hale, who recently revealed her shocking pet peeve, admitted something pretty amazing about her Pretty Little Liars casting — she was asked to pick who she wanted to play!

“I’m actually very similar to Aria. When I got the script, they were sort of like, ‘Lucy, pick a character’,” she said in a recent interview. “I was initially drawn to Aria. She’s very creative and headstrong, a little bit stubborn and sassy.”

That’s definitely not a normal casting process! But we do agree, she fits the role of Aria very well. We can’t imagine anyone else playing the character.

Lucy Hale may be one half of the “Ezria” relationship on ‘Pretty Little Liars,’ but that doesn’t mean she ships them. In fact, as she revealed on ‘Watch What Happens Live’ last night (Jan. 8), she thinks the whole student-teacher thing is kinda disturbing.

When asked by host Andy Cohen if her character Aria’s relationship with Ezra Fitz (her on-and-off teacher) ever bothers her, the actress and singer was totally honest. “Like, freak me out? Yeah, it’s creepy as hell,” Lucy laughed.

But that wasn’t the only ‘PLL’ secret she was revealing — the ‘Lie a Little Better’ singer also casually mentioned that if she had to guess who ‘A’ is, she’d say it was one of the “four main girls.” Bombshell!

Of course, Lucy’s revelation seems to support the fan theory that Aria is A — and the fact that she told Seth Meyers that the show’s producers refuse to tell her who A is only further rouses our suspicions.

“They won’t tell me!” Lucy explained, admitting it’s because they’re worried that she’ll spill the beans. Still, the fact that all of the cast members know except her? Something’s up in Rosewood, for sure.
