As “ Pretty Little Liars” are now (un)fortunately coming to an end after a seven-year-long run, one of the show’s stars has recently opened up about the whole shebang.

Shay Mitchell has been talking to Us Weekly and it appears she is pretty excited to venture into the unknown after the show ends.

“The pro of this new chapter is that when you’re not comfortable, you’re growing,” says Mitchell. “It’s exciting, the unknown. I love being in that unknown in my life.”

However, the Canadian actress also mentioned the obvious downside of Pretty Little Liars having to end and moving away from the show’s fictional hometown of Rosewood.

“The negative part is not being able to see my cast and crew every day,” she says, referring to her former coworkers Lucy Hale, Ashley Benson, Troian Bellisario and Sasha Pieterse. “I miss them so much, they’re my second family. That’s 100 percent the con of it.”

She also said the finale was the most special episode for her: “It was really, really hard. I don’t know if I speak for all of us, but for me, it was the most special episode because it brought us full circle. I am so proud of it.”

Although the whole Pretty Little Liars crew was quite emotional to see the show wrapping up after more than 7 years, the filming of the final episode did give them a couple of laughs. Namely, Mitchell and Pieterse.

The two co-stars, whose characters form a hot onscreen couple dubbed Emison by the fans, had to film a hot and steamy sex scene (thanks btw) in order to round up their characters’ storyline.

“Sash and I are so close,” Mitchell told Us Magazine recently. “We’re like, ‘Hey, can you grab my nipple cover and pick it up? It’s on my knee!’”

Now let your imagination rage away…

The “Pretty Little Liars” series finale airs today.
