WATCH: Lea Salonga appears in trailer of ‘Pretty Little Liars’ reboot
Lea Salonga has made a brief appearance in the official trailer of the upcoming series “Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin,” a reboot of the American TV thriller “Pretty Little Liars.”
The trailer introduces a new set of teen girls, or “Little Liars,” who find themselves tormented by an unknown assailant who wants to make them pay for a “secret sin” committed by their parents two decades before, as seen on streaming service HBO Max’s YouTube channel last Thursday, July 7.
Actress and Broadway star Salonga was featured in a dining scene with her co-stars Sharon Leal, Elena Goode, Carly Pope and Zakiya Young. They all play mothers of the new “Little Liars.”
“In the dark, coming-of-age, horror-tinged drama, ‘Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin,’ we find ourselves miles away from Rosewood, but within the existing ‘Pretty Little Liars’ universe — in a brand-new town, with a new generation of Little Liars,” HBO Max stated.
Salonga will be playing the role of Elodie, the overbearing mother of Minnie (Malia Pyles), who works overtime to keep her daughter safe from previous trauma.
The cast of “Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin” was first revealed in September last year. Pyles, Chandler Kinney, Maia Reficco, Zaria and Bailee Madison star as the new-generation “Little Liars.” The series also stars Alex Aiono, Mallory Bechtel and Eric Johnson.
The original “Pretty Little Liars” TV series ran for seven seasons from 2010 to 2017. It starred Lucy Hale, Shay Mitchell, Ashley Benson and Troian Bellisario. /ra
