NYLON + LUCY HALE

there’s no mystery to why we love our december cover star.

Pretty Little Liars

' Aria Montgomery may not have figured out just who A really is, but there's no mystery to why we love Lucy Hale: The Memphis, Tennessee native is as sweet as she is smart. With the third season of

PLL

picking back up in January and a country album in the works, she sat down with Mickey Rapkin to talk life, love, and keeping a few things unsolved.

On moving to Hollywood:

I didn't have a friend for, like, two years[…] I've come out of my shell, but I was pretty shy. Some people take it as me being standoffish.

On first reading the PLL script:

I was like, 'Are you guys sure this is ABC Family? There's a lot of risque stuff happening.'

On PLL fervent fans:

[Shay Mitchell and I] got to the airport in Brazil and there were like 500 people there with signs and gifts. How did they even know we were coming?

On making an album:

It's absolutely terrifying. You only get one album. You only get one single. You get one shot in music. But I have a million different dreams. Why can't I go out and try to achieve them all? Who are you to say I can't?

On the projects she'd like to take on next:

I'm searching for something eye-opening. I love movies like

500 Days of Summer

and

Juno

. Something offbeat without the glamour and the makeup and the clothing.

On who she'd like A to be:

I want it to be a Bonnie and Clyde thing. Where Aria and Ezra are in it together. Or Spencer and Toby. But something romantic, [where] you root for them [even though] they're the bad guys.
