Film and television star Sasha Pieterse is best known for her lead role in Freeform's Pretty Little Liars. Despite being only twelve years old when she landed the role in what would go on to become one of the network's most popular and successful shows, she held her own as the youngest regular cast member already with years of professional experience beneath her belt.
The Johannesburg native immigrated to America with her family for greater opportunities. The daughter of professional acrobatic dancers, Pieterse became accustomed to the rigors of a career in entertainment at an early age. When she was just four and a half years old, she met with a Los Angeles agent who quickly signed her, and she has been acting and modeling ever since.
Pieterse got her start in television in 2002 at the age of six, starring as Buffy opposite Gary Cole in the WB comedy series. Family Affair, a remake of the late 1960s hit. She was awarded with a Young Artist's Award for her work in the series. She appeared in the hit series Heroes and guest starred in House M.D. She also starred in the telefilm Claire, opposite Valerie Bertinelli, and appeared in the Disney Channel Original Movie Geek Charming.
Pieterse's first major film role was as the Ice Princess in Robert Rodriguez' The Adventures of Shark Boy and Lava Girl 3D with Taylor Lautner and George Lopez. In 2007, she starred in The Air I Breathe alongside Sarah Michelle Gellar. She also appeared in Good Luck Chuck, X-Men: First Class, and the critically-acclaimed film Inherent Vice directed by Paul Thomas Anderson and starring opposite Reese Witherspoon, Joaquin Phoenix, and Martin Short.
In addition to her successful acting career, Pieterse has launched her singing career releasing four singles with co-writer and producer, Dan Franklin.
