The ladies were there to promote the March 19 episode where their characters Emily, Spencer, Aria and Hannah finally discover who has been tormenting and blackmailing them.
At one point Elisabeth Hasselbeck asked Shay about how she feels to play Emily, a bisexual teen.
She replied, “I’m so honored to be able to play Emily and bring that character to life. I’ve received so many different comments from all the viewers saying that they’re able to relate to the character, and that she has given them the courage to be able to come out to their friends and family.”
She added, “If anything, if they feel less alone, that’s the best reward that I could ever have.”
The girls were recently in Brazil and were surprised to find fans at the airport and at their hotel waiting for them.
Lucy said, “We see signs and gifts and none of us expected it…it was really awesome”
