"Pretty Little Liars" just announced that a new girl is coming to Rosewood. Alona Tal ("Veronica Mars") will be appearing as Simone, who is going to cause a bit of trouble for Aria and Mr. Fitz."Simone ... was my babysitter growing up," star Lucy Hale tells Zap2it on the "Liars" set. "I looked up to her, idolized her, wanted to be her. In the character description, they describe her as 'an older Aria.' She comes back into town unexpectedly and sort of hits it off with Mr. Fitz."Uh oh. We think Simone sounds like a troublemaker. "There's definitely going to be some friction," Hale agrees. "She stirs things up a little bit.""Let's just say there's some chemistry that happens between us," adds Ian Harding, of his character Ezra Fitz and Simone. And the chemistry may not be entirely one-sided."I will leave that for you all to decide, but ... there are some mutual interests they share," says Harding. "There are some loaded exchanges." But does this mean Mr. Fitz doesn't love Aria?"There's a very awesome scene that will answer your question that's in the end of [episode 14]. We'll see which way that goes," Harding teases."Pretty Little Liars" returns in January 2011 to ABC Family. Look for more goodies from our visit to Rosewood over the coming weeks.
