Starting Her Acting Career
Yesterday marked the end of a major chapter in my life. As I’m sure a few of you know, the TV show Pretty Little Liars had it’s very last finale last night. I woke up feeling sick with a huge knot in my stomach! It’s so surreal that there will be no more live “previously on Pretty Little Liars” and no more “Shhh’s” at the end of that now very iconic song. But as I joined my PLL family to watch the finale, I was hit by this wave of absolute joy. It dawned on me that this is an end to an era. A very important era, but even more importantly it was a time to celebrate. To embrace the incredibly wonderful time we all shared together and to soak in every bit of joy it had brought me and others. PLL…playing Alison has been such a crucial part of my childhood and now adulthood. From starting and graduating high school, getting my drivers license, buying my first home, getting engaged to my best friend, and now wedding planning, what a trip! I just want to thank you. I wish I could give all of you a huge hug! You have seen me grow and you have grown with me. Thank you for always sticking by me, for never giving up on me or Alison. As I enter this new chapter of my life, I hope you will continue with me. There’s so many new fun adventures I’m about to journey through and I would be so honored if you all ride along with me. My blog @sashaingoodtaste is definitely one of those adventures. Sasha in Good Taste doesn’t just stop at this blog, there’s so many more things in store (very soon) that I can’t wait to show you! Creating and entertaining is such a passion of mine and having you share that alongside me, means the absolute world to me! We. are. family. and Rosewood will forever live on! I wholeheartedly ADORE YOU! Love, Sasha…-A #prettylittleliars #pllfamily #emisonfamily #emison #emisonisendgame #sashaingoodtaste That's immortality my darlings.

Sasha Pieterse on Dancing with the Stars
Signing on for Dancing with the Stars, Pieterse has her parents and partner Gleb Savchenko to give her some pointers. Talking about the experience, the actress said, “It’s so fun to be doing something different. This is really a new chapter.”
For the premiere, Pieterse and Savchenko will dance the Cha Cha to Fleur East’s “Like That.” Talking about his first performance, Savchenko said, “It’s a Latin American dance, it’s fun, it’s cheeky, it’s pretty fast.” He explained, “We’re working a lot on the technique and the stamina so that’s like the two major things I’m focusing on right now, but the dance is done so we just keep running it.”
In fact, the 33-year-old professional dancer had nothing but good things to say about Pieterse! “She’s amazing. She has a great natural rhythm. She’s not a dancer though,” he said, adding, “She doesn’t have any dancing experience, but she”s very talented. You know, when you’re talented I feel like you’re talented in everything and she works really hard. Even though she’s only 21, she’s very mature for her age and she wants to learn how to dance.”
The 21-year-old has a huge fan following because of her role in Pretty Little Liars.
