There are many ways I can describe Shay Mitchell, stunning, beautiful, classy, smart, and breathtaking, is that enough or shall I continue?
For all those living under a rock for the past seven years, Mitchell plays the beautiful, caring lesbian, Emily Fields on ABC Family’s Pretty little Liars. Don’t worry fellas we still have a chance; this is a character, and while Mitchell has gone on record as saying she doesn’t label her sexuality, all I heard was “Mark you still have a shot!”.
Mitchell, a 29-year-old native of Toronto, Canada, was introduced to performing arts at the age of 5. She would later go on and pursue a career in modeling that would have her travel the world, ending up in Bankok, Hong Kong, and Thailand for extended periods of time.
To say that the half Scottish-Filipino Mitchell is all about the glam and glitz would be an understatement as she spends her free time fighting for causes most stars may ignore. Mitchell is the national spokesperson for the Pantene Pro-V Nature Fusion collection and is an ambassador for the Somaly Mam Foundation, a nonprofit organization that focuses on combating the global sex trade. Much more than looks guys.

While her days as a PLL may soon be coming to an end, Mitchell has begun to set her eyes on the next phase of her career, the feature film kind. As she snagged a role in 2016’s Mothers Day opposite Jennifer Aniston and my Pretty Woman crush, Julia Roberts.
I will hate to see Mitchell leave the role of Emily, but my WCW was never for Em, it’s all about Shay.
