Best known for her role as the fashion-obsessed Hanna Marin in the teen mystery-drama series Pretty Little Liars, Ashley Benson made her movie debut with a bit part in the 2004 comedy 13 Going on 30 when she was 14.
ABC Family began casting for a Pretty Little Liars television pilot in October 2009 when Ashley was 19. Born on December 18, 1989, in Anaheim Hills, California, she turned 20 on December 18, 2009.

Have you ever wondered what happens right before two best friends hit the red carpet at one of the most talked-about awards nights in the world?
Why, they FaceTime, of course. In January 2016, Ashley Benson hit the red carpet at the 2016 People’s Choice Awards in Los Angeles, but not before taking a minute to FaceTime with her “wife.”

Ashley opted for something short, going for an embellished-shoulder Phillip Plein long-sleeved dress.
