One of the biggest surprises of the Season 2 premiere of Pretty Little Liars was finding out that creepy lacrosse stud Noel Kahn was dating gossip queen fashionista Mona Vanderwaal. Two “A” prime suspects locking lips with each other? “Oh, this can’t be good,” we thought. However, their impromptu romance seems more exciting than frightening, and we can’t wait to discover the reasons behind their relationship (if there are any at all, aside from natural attraction).
In fact, even the PLL cast was intrigued by the Noel and Mona (aka Nona) union. Brant Daugherty revealed to Wetpaint that one cast member in particular was in complete disbelief:
“Janel Parrish, who plays Mona, has been a great friend of mine since day one, so we had a good laugh about it. The best thing I can tell you about it is that when we did the table read for the premiere after just getting the script, so many of us were reading it for the first time — and we got to that scene, and it reads, “Noel walks in and kisses Mona” — and I remember Lucy Hale audibly gasped, “Oh my God!” If we can get [Lucy Hale] to gasp, we can get the fans for sure.”
This is why we adore Lucy Hale. She’s not only a talented and stylish gal, but her reactions to PLL plot twists are so cute!
So, were you as shocked as Lucy Hale was upon learning that Mona and Noel were Rosewood’s newest couple? Tell us if you approve of the “Nona” relationship in the comments!
