Born June 14, 1989 in Memphis, Tennessee, singer and actress Lucy Hale broke onto the scene in 2003 as a contestant on the FOX reality show American Juniors. Though she didn't win the title, she quickly earned small roles on hit shows such as How I Met Your Mother and Wizards of Waverly Place.
Hale's next big break came in 2008 when she landed a starring role on the short-lived CW comedy Privileged (opposite Joanna Garcia). After just one season, the show was canceled.
The actress struck gold in 2010 with the ABC Family drama Pretty Little Liars, where she plays a high school student who has an illicit affair with her teacher -- all while trying to solve a number of mysteries surrounding her friend Allison's death.
Acting aside, the young actress has also been romantically linked to several of young Hollywood's most eligible bachelors, including Wizards of Waverly Place star David Henrie, The Hard Times of RJ Berger's Paul Iacono and Honor Society lead singer Michael Bruno.
