Lucy Hale - TV, Movie, Music and Hollywood Celebrities - Naked and Nude - Galleries, Biography, and Videos
Lucy Hale is one of the most promising American actresses and singers of the current times. She has everything going for her and has already tasted massive success for someone of her age. Popularly known for her role of Aria Montgomery in the Freeform series ‘Pretty Little Liars’, Hale first started out as a contestant on ‘American Juniors.’ A gifted singer, she aspired to have a career in music. In 2003, she gave wings to her ambition as she participated in the reality show. Her melodious voice and soulful renditions helped her make her way to the top five. She then became a part of a band that disbanded two years later. Concurrently, her acting career kick-started as well as she featured in popular television series in guest roles. The big breakthrough in television came in with ‘Pretty Little Liars’, the series which won her several awards and recognition. Despite being an established actress, Hale has not given up on her music career. She signed a record deal with Hollywood Records and in 2014 came up with her debut album, ‘Road Between.’ Acting and music apart, she also serves as the ambassador of the beauty brand Mark Girl.
Lucy Hale was born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee, where she always dreamed of being a star — mainly a famous singer. She got her first big break in 2003 as one of the five winners of the reality show American Juniors, a children's spinoff of American Idol. Concentrating on acting, she joined the cast of the CW’s Privileged in 2008, and went on to win the role of Aria Montgomery on Pretty Little Liars, which ran from 2010-17. Hale then starred on the short-lived Life Sentence, before being tapped for the title role of the Riverdale spinoff Katy Keene.
'The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2,' 'Truth or Dare'
In 2008, Hale made her big-screen debut in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2, playing Effie, the younger sister of Alexis Bledel’s character, Lena Kaligaris. In 2011, she had a cameo in Scream 4. In 2018, she returned to the horror genre with Truth or Dare, about a group of friends who head to Mexico for one last round of partying before college graduation. Hale’s character, Olivia, befriends a guy who invites the group to play the titular and seemingly harmless — game. But then people start dying.
'Dude,' 'The Unicorn,' 'Fantasy Island'
Dude, which was released on Netflix in April 2018, is a coming-of-age comedy focused on four high school girlfriends, played by Hale, Kathryn Prescott, Alexandra Shipp, and Awkwafina. The death of a common friend looms over the otherwise raunchy stoner comedy about misbehaving teenage girls. Hale also appeared in another 2018 comedy, The Unicorn, as a free spirit who joins a couple looking to spice up their relationship, before returning to the big screen in February 2020 with Blumhouse's Fantasy Island, a horror reboot of the classic TV series.
'Pretty Little Liars'
Based on a series of books by Sara Shepard of the same name, Pretty Little Liars was an ensemble teen mystery television series that debuted on ABC Family (now Freeform) in 2010 and aired for seven seasons. The show focused on a group of high school students and best friends living in Rosewood, Pennsylvania, whose de facto leader disappeared one night during a sleepover. Hale, who won several awards for her portrayal of Aria Montgomery, including a Teen Choice Award for four different years, is the one who came up with the iconic "shhh" gesture in the show’s intro. "[My] shushing the camera was actually a spur-of-the-moment idea that happened to make the final cut," she told Cosmopolitan.com.
'Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve'
In 2015, Hale joined the production of the annual Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve show as a correspondent for the New Orleans branch of festivities. In 2019, she took over for Jenny McCarthy as a correspondent in New York City's Times Square, alongside host Ryan Seacrest.
Hale returned to the small screen as Stella Abbott, a terminally ill woman who suddenly learns that she’s completely healthy, in the 2018 CW dramedy Life Sentence. "The creators [Erin Cardillo and Richard Keith] hung out with me a few times to get a sense of how I talk and act, and they kind of created the character around me," she told Elle in 2018. "It's a lot more work, but I like having the weight of the world on my shoulders." Despite her personal investment in the character, Hale's time as Stella Abbott was brief, as Life Sentence failed to earn a second season on the air.
Following the success of the Archie comics-based Riverdale in 2017, Hale was tapped to star in the CW spinoff Katy Keene as its leading fashionista. Despite the shared DNA between the two shows, Katy Keene is described as being "very different from Riverdale" by creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, with the newer production taking place five years in the future and featuring musical numbers. Katy Keene debuted in February 2020.
Other TV Roles
Hale has appeared on numerous popular television shows as a guest star, including Wizards of Waverly Place, How I Met Your Mother, and CSI: Miami. Her first recurring role came in 2007 when she was cast in NBC's short-lived re-imagining of the Bionic Woman as Becca Sommers, the younger sister of title character Jaime Sommers. The following year, she won the lead role of Rose Baker in the CW’s comedy-drama Privileged, but it was also canceled after one season.
