Lucy Hale has declared that 2017, her first year post–Pretty Little Liars, will be a “me year.”
Hale, who is co-hosting Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest from New Orleans, told Entertainment Tonight, “I love the idea of being as creative as possible. I think TV shows are still fun and having a job in TV for eight years is almost unheard of, but now I’m excited to change it up a bit and try and bunch of things.”
“I want to try to do stuff that scares me a little bit and my whole thing is just always keeping an open mind because some of my best experiences come from jumping into something I never thought I would enjoy … I think I’m just seeing where the road takes me. I’ve been really, really blessed so far so just continuing to work hard and I’m excited for this next year. I think business-wise it’s going to be great, but I feel like personally it will be, hopefully, my best year yet.”
The final season of Pretty Little Liars begins in April 2017. Hale has a starring role in the upcoming indie Dude, which doesn’t currently have a release date.
