Shay Mitchell recently announced her pregnancy, but not without telling her “Dollface” co-stars first.
“I couldn’t think of a better show to be apart of during this stage,” the actress told E!News. “Like truly, getting to come on set with all women and going through this, I couldn’t have felt more comfortable.”
The former “Pretty Little Liars” actress added, “It was funny when I announced it. They were like, ‘Yeah, we’ve known.’ I’m like, ‘Really? Was it my face? How did you know?'”
Mitchell even said that she has called on her co-stars, Kat Dennings and Brenda Song, for advice.
Although the two ladies said that Mitchell should probably get advice elsewhere. “Do not take any advice from me,” Dennings joked, while Song added, “She wouldn’t ask us for advice, ’cause her child would come out as a 95-year-old grandma. We are literally taking knitting lessons.”
Luckily Mitchell’s character, Brenda, opts for a more free-flowing wardrobe. “My character’s wardrobe prior to [the cast] even knowing was already kind of loose and free-flowing and it was great,” she shared. “I mean, Brenda’s character was the complete opposite, so had I been in her position I would have had to tell them a lot earlier. But once I saw the first fitting, I was like, ‘Oh, I’m good.”
And Mitchell couldn’t be happier to go through this phase in her life while filming “Dollface”.
“Being surrounded by a bunch of women… this cast of girls that are just really genuinely nice and great girls to be around,” she said. “Plus, it was a comedy and I’ve never done that. I went from one serious drama to another drama, and being in the state that I am, I can’t really do a bunch of stunts, so I wanted to do something that was a lot more lighthearted and fun. I couldn’t have asked for a better show.”
“Dollface” comes to Hulu this November.
