Get it, girls!
Shay Mitchell and Sasha Pieterse opened up about filming their sex scene for Pretty Little Liars’ Tuesday, June 27, series finale. And according to the actresses, who play onscreen couple Emily and Alison, the long-awaited moment was quite an experience.
In a June 14 interview with Us Weekly, Shay, 30, described her intimate interaction with Sasha, 21, as “funny,” and said that they worked hard to make sure the experience was as comfortable as possible.
“Sash and I are so close,” the Bliss author told the publication at the Pretty Little Liars: Made Here press preview exhibit in LA. “We’re like, ‘Hey, can you grab my nipple cover and pick it up? It’s on my knee!’”
Sasha shared similar sentiments, telling the outlet that she and Shay had each other’s backs during filming. “You kind of protect each other,” the blonde beauty explained. “If there’s any awkward angle, you’re like, ‘I got you, girl.’"
During their chat, the PLL duo— who fans have affectionately nicknamed “Emison” — also spoke about the positive reactions to their characters’ LGBT-friendly storyline. “They love Emison! They send us gifts all the time,” Sasha said.
“It’s awesome to hear their reactions, especially coming up to the last few episodes. I think they've been really happy about how things have been going,” added Shay, who also mentioned that she “couldn't have written up a better ending [for Emison] than what [Pretty Little Liars executive producer I. Marlene King] did.”
Sasha agreed. "I think especially with Emison, it was so close to her heart as well. It was really special for us," she said.
Pretty Little Liars airs on Freeform Tuesdays at 8 p.m. EST.
