Lindsey Shaw talks to HollywoodLife.com about the show’s Oct. 23 Halloween special, including one of ‘A’s deadliest plots ever!
Two weeks from today, the Pretty Little Liars return for their second annual Halloween special, and Lindsey Shaw assures us this year’s fright-fest will blow last year’s out of the water. Not only does it feature an “awesome” performance by Adam Lambert, but as Lindsey tells HollywoodLife.com, Paige also gets to share a “special moment” with Spencer (Troian Bellisario). What could that mean? Read on to find out…
Congratulations to Paige, I guess. Her name has finally been cleared!
Yes, it has. Only to be muddied again at some point, I’m sure. But at least she’s clear for now.
Is there even a small part of you that wishes Paige had turned out to be “A”?
A little bit. It’s fun to be bad, it really is. It’s dangerous and awesome, but I’m glad she turned out to be sincere in the end.
What was your personal reaction when you found out it was Toby?
I think I screamed a little bit. It was epic, brilliant. I was on set when they filmed his turn-around. Me and Tyler Blackburn also filmed alternate endings with us as “A,” just in case anything leaked. It was cool to wear the hoodie for a second. Glad that’s going to be select DVD footage.
Speaking of awesome clothing, let’s talk about Paige’s costume on the Halloween special. Have you ever worn a tuxedo before?
I have, but only on the Pretty Little Liars finale from the second season. If they want to put me in tuxedos, that’s fine. I’ve discovered I look good in them.
So you’re adjusting well to Paige’s tomboy style?
I’m sort of a tomboy as it is, so my style is already jeans and a t-shirt and sneakers. Working with Shay Mitchell has actually made me up my game a little bit, dress girly and wear heels. She’s the girliest person of all time. I’m pretty comfortable in [Paige's] skin now.
You also got to work with Adam Lambert on the episode. That must have been sweet.
It was awesome! He’s so cool. I’m not that into American Idol, but he was so nice, and his performance was so sick. He had to do it like six to eight times. He was in full costume and it was so hot in the train, but he was such a good sport about it. I’m definitely an Adam Lambert fan.
I believe they call themselves “Glamberts.”
Are the girls nicer to Paige on the Halloween episode, given everything she went through?
Theres definitely a moment between Spencer and Paige where it’s spoken. Paige helps them with all the mischief going on in the train and solidifies her trustworthiness and has a special moment with Spencer. They’re all on board with Paige.
Mischief is one of my favorite words! What kind of mischief can we expect from “A”?
There’s people running across train cars, people getting into crazy fights — I can’t say any more, man. She rocks the train, for sure.
Are you glad to hear the girls are ‘on board’ with Paige? Drop me a comment with your thoughts and predictions for the Halloween special!
