With an all new Halloween episode of "Pretty Little Liars" set to air on October 23rd, Lucy Hale pitched in on promotions by covering the Runway Fall 2012 issue of Prestige Hong Kong magazine.
The 23-year-old actress looked stunning in a dark purple coat for the front page while opening up about topics including her upcoming album and taking fashion risks.
A few highlights from Miss Hale's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Prestige Hong Kong!
On her upcoming album:
“I signed a deal with Hollywood Records a couple months ago, so we’re writing and recording. It’s just exciting for me to get back into music, because that’s really what I wanted to do. It’s very fun, and I’m really lucky with the people that I’m working with. We hope to have it out later next year, depending on my schedule and how everything works out."
On being an actress:
“I think people often forget that I’m 23 because I play a 17-year-old on TV, and I look significantly younger than my age. I think the transition for me becoming an adult actress – there’s a fine line and it’s gradual. It has to be the right role, the right material, and it has to come across as appropriate and not over the top or forced. I haven’t come to that crossroads yet, but I think when it happens it has to be thought through. But if you’re referring to that movie, or that book, I’d push the envelope a little. There are definitely things I’d do that would surprise people – I’ll say that.”
On being shy:
“I think that in interviews, I appear very outgoing and bubbly and that’s pretty much how I am - but I think people would be surprised to know that I have a side to me that’s very quiet, shy and reserved.”
On experimenting with fashion:
“Lately, I’ve learned about proportions for body sizes; I’m five foot two, so I’m pretty petite. Before the show I was like, ‘This is what I’ll wear; this is what I won’t wear,’ but now I’m more willing to try different silhouettes and mix patterns. I think it was just a [matter of] letting my walls down a little bit. My motto now is, ‘People will either love it or they’ll hate it,’ and you have to give them that chance.”
