Plus, Alice tells us a few things you might not know about herself — including her biggest obsession!

You may think you know everything about Mads on The Lying Game, but Alice Greczyn tells that things are about to change for her now that the real Sutton (Alexandra Chando) is back in Phoenix, and a new love interest (Misha Crosby) has entered her life. The arrival of both characters “really sparks things up for Mads,” Alice tells us. “Things get more intense.”

Alice tells us she’s particularly excited about working with Misha — and not just because he’s British.

“Misha Crosby, who plays Ryan, is just a charming guy to work with,” she tells us. “And he does Ryan very well. He’s kind of the cocky, too-big-for-his-britches school boy, but he’s so charming that you can’t help but like him.”


And now that I’ve filled you in about all things Mads, allow me to tell you a few things you probably didn’t know about Alice, herself!

1. She’s nothing like Mads: “I don’t really relate to her on a face level,” Alice says. “I come from a very big, very tight-knit family; I’m the oldest of five kids; my parents are still happily married; I grew up in a very poor household; and I was home-schooled until I went to college. Of course, part of the fun is getting to play a character that’s so different from myself.”

2. She was a competitive figure skater: “Mads is a dancer, and that’s another thing we don’t have in common,” Alice admits. “I have a lot of respect for dancers, their discipline, and the pain they endure just because they love what they do so much. I’ve seen online debates about it: People are like, ‘She’s totally a dancer,’ or, ‘No way, look at the way she moves her arms.’ I’ve had movement training and I was a competitive figure skater when I was a kid, but I’m not trained in ballet.”

3. She’s a foodie: “Everyone who knows me knows I love food, which people are usually very surprised to hear,” Alice says. “My family loves food, so I grew up with a very healthy appreciation for other culture’s cuisines. I chose the [Twitter] handle AliceFood, mostly because it wasn’t taken. Other people were pretending to be me on Twitter, so when I finally decided to make my own Twitter, that’s just what stuck.”

4. She’s writing a cook book: “I wrote restaurant reviews for fun for a while, and I’m now in the process of writing a cookbook,” Alice reveals. “One of the biggest thing I’ll do is tweet pictures of what I’m eating, and the iPhone makes it so easy to pretend I’m a good photographer. And I love being able to ask Twitter followers for restaurant recommendations. I usually plan my travels around what I plan to eat, and Twitter is definitely a component of that.”

Don’t forget to watch Alice in new episode of The Lying Game, airing Mondays at 9 p.m. on ABC Family!
