A few years back there were a lot of actors who would have loved to have played the role of the bad guy in a hit television series, taking on the heroes of the show. These villainous roles always seem to be more gritty than those of the heroes but it seems that some of the stars would prefer to avoid them these days.
With the way that social media is these days, playing a bad guy can actually be very difficult, as fans of the shows love to give abuse to the actors online. Actress Shay Mitchell plays one of the good girls on the hit television series Pretty Little Liars and she has admitted that she would not be a fan of playing a bad girl on the show.
Mitchell told MTV News, "I'd be terrified because there'd be a lot of angry little girls at my doorstep. [But I also] think it would be very fun to play a character like Mona [Vanderwaal from the 'A' team, played by Janel Parrish] where she's always switching, or Ali [DiLaurentis, a former friend of the girls, played by Sasha Pieterse]. You know, back in the day in those flashbacks, she is cruel, but everybody loves her."
Fans of the actress and the show, can catch Shay Mitchell in her familiar role of Emily Fields in Pretty Little Liars, which is now in its fourth season on ABC Family and continues to air on Tuesday evenings, with the next episode airing on February 18.
