What Makes Sasha Pieterse So Special
What makes Sasha different from others is the way she connects with her fans; the way she cares for them. She is constantly telling her fans that they mean the world to her and how they need to love themselves more than anyone else. The fact that she is so famous already is also something that differentiates her from others. Not many people her age are as famous as she is and not every young actor reaches the level of stardom she has. Even though her parents were already in the entertainment industry, she made her mark solely with her own talent and skills, and not because of them.

Beyond Fame
She has a huge fan base. She has over 1.78M followers on her twitter and over 5.8M followers on her Instagram account, whom she keeps updated with every little aspect of her life. She once admitted in an interview that she channels the character of Regina George from the movie ‘Mean Girls’ to play her role as Alison DiLaurentis in ‘Pretty Little Liars’ more efficiently. Not many people know this but Pieterse was born in South Africa. She moved to Las Vegas with her parents at the age of three and then to Los Angeles. Even though she is so rich and famous at such a young age, she has not let all the fame get to her head. She is said to be a very down to earth and friendly person. She shares a special bond with her fans.
Behind The Curtains
Sasha comes from a close-knit family that supports her in all that she does. Her fans are also the ones who help her keep going through all the body-shaming comments she faces all the time. She is said to be in a serious relationship with Hudson Sheaffer, who is surprisingly seven years older than her. The two have been dating for many years now and seem to be going pretty strong as there has been news about the two being engaged. Her Parents come from a professional acrobatic dance team that used to perform all over the world. So it’s pretty clear that she was set for a career in the entertainment industry. She was homeschooled and graduated at the age of just 14 years.
