If the pictures are shocking for PLL fans, Lucy says this is exactly what she was going for.

"Yeah, I was really excited to do something a lot more grown up and show a different side of me," she says of the headline-making photoshoot. " ... it's sort of what I was going for."

"I'm very aware of the people that support me, but you know, I am 26 now, so it is important for me to feel creatively fulfilled in other ways, too," she adds about showing off a different side of herself. "Like you said, you didn’t expect them at all, and that sort of excites me because I wanted it to have a shock factor."

And don't be fooled by her innocent looks.

"I'm very professional and I'm very Type A when it comes to work, but I also have this pretty dark, almost provocative side to me as well," she shares. "I'm just a petite girl with big eyes that looks really innocent, so they'd definitely be a little shocked to know certain things about me."

Lucy says her fans will definitely get to see more of her darker side in her future roles.

"I’ll be done next October with [Pretty Little Liars] forever, which is exciting, but also scary at the same time because it’s the next chapter of my life and so I'm really looking forward to exploring different and darker roles," she teases.
