ABC Family has also inked deals with Troian Bellisario and Ian Harding to join the cast of 'Pretty Little Liars', based on the popular series of young adult novels by the same name, as a mentor and love interest for main character Aria (Lucy Hale).

'Pretty Little Liars' tells the story of a group of teenage girls who begin receiving mysterious messages from a missing friend.

This is the first major role for Harding, who just graduated from Carnegie Mellon University; previous turns include cameos in 'Adventureland' and USA's horror anthology 'Deadtime Stories'. Bellisario, who has been acting on and off since childhood on shows such as 'JAG' and 'NCIS', will play the role of Aria's friend Spencer.
