With “Pretty Little Liars” heading into its final season, what lies ahead for Canadian star Shay Mitchell after the hit mystery drama finally wraps up?
As she reveals in a new interview with Self, she’s planning to focus her energies on her YouTube channel, which already boasts an impressive half-million subscribers.
“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,” she says of the platform YouTube provides her.
“I have so many different interests and love trying new things, which is how the YouTube channel came about,” she tells Self. “Next I’m doing a series on my workout lifestyle.”
For the super-fit 29-year-old, fitness is a passion, and her workouts are not for the novice, mixing running, boxing and spin classes. However, she has an end goal in sight. “I want to do my own stunts,” she explains.
Although she’s primarily known for “PLL”, she has far grander ambitions, and sees herself following in the footsteps of entrepreneurial actors such as Jessica Alba. “My generation realizes you can be multi-hyphenated,” she says. “You don’t have to stay in a box.”
