Next week, “Pretty Little Liars” star Lucy Hale is shedding her crazy Aria fashions to play a preacher’s daughter on fellow ABC Family show “Baby Daddy.” But as Hale says in these behind-the-scenes clips, her character Piper has more in common with Aria than you might think.

“Well, they’re both liars, that’s for sure,” says Hale with a laugh. “Their wardrobes are completely different, but underneath it all Aria and Piper both are putting up a front on who they are to cretain people and you take that away and they’re a different thing, so they’re actually, now that i think about it, more similar than I thought.”

Hale adds, “It’s fun to go from a one-hour drama where we do a lot of night work and it’s super intense and super dramatic and then come to this — it’s so nice to get to laugh all day. … I’m not bagging on ‘PLL,’ I love it, but it’s nice to do something different.”

Below, Hale bonds with her male co-stars, assigning each of them a “PLL” character — spoiler alert, Tahj Mowry is Aria.

Watch Lucy’s premiere on “Baby Daddy” Wednesday, Feb. 5 at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT and “Pretty Little Liars” airs Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT, both on ABC Family.
