Pretty Little Liars star Shay Mitchell recently sat down for an interview with Self Magazine, where she talked about her plans after the series ends in the Spring. Here's what she had to say:
"My generation realizes you can be multihyphenated. You don't have to stay in a box. Just because you started off in one industry doesn't mean you can't jump into another one. I wouldn't say that acting is a stepping-stone, per se. But it's another step in the direction of where I want to go. The message I'm trying to put out there is that you can do whatever you want to do, and if I'm going to say that, I need to do it myself. If I want to become a singer and drop a single next month, I'm going to do that."
On working as a waitress:
"I would walk around as though I were in a movie. I was already a successful actress in my mind."
On keeping a vision board:
"It was a corkboard in my kitchen, with pictures of the Hollywood sign and Gossip Girl because I wanted to be on a show like that. I really believe in the power of visualizing—having faith—and then working your ass off."
On her YouTube Channel:
"I have so many different interests and love trying new things, which is how the YouTube channel came about. Next I'm doing a series on my workout lifestyle."
On her workout regimen:
"I like to switch it up so I don't get bored. Sometimes I'll just go to the UCLA track and run up and down the bleachers."
