We don’t know about you but we love it when two fictional television worlds collide! Whether it’s a true-to-form crossover or having a beloved actor from one popular show join another, it’s basically fan fiction come to life. So, when we learned that Chloe Bridges, who portrays Donna LaDonna on the ’80s-themed CW series The Carrie Diaries, has landed a recurring role on Pretty Little Liars, we were positively giddy with excitement.
The gorgeous actress, who’s starred on both seasons of The Carrie Diaries has appeared in a variety of movies including Mantervention, Nightlight, Family Weekend, Social Nightmare, Worst. Prom. Ever., Queen Freak, and was a series regular on ABC’s Freddie, which starred Freddie Prinze Jr. As for her other television stints, she’s appeared in episodes of New Girl, 90210, Suburgatory, and George Lopez. Not only is she a dynamic actress but she also has a lot of screen presence and will certainly bring a lot of sass and flavor to Rosewood.
As for her character, Chloe will be playing Sydney Driscoll. Who’s that you ask? Oh just the newest member of Rosewood High’s champion swim team who will make her official debut in PLL Season 5 Episode 3 and appears in subsequent installments. And guess who she’ll be befriending? Why the town’s residential dolphin Emily Fields (Shay Mitchell), of course! Whether or not Syd is a potential romantic interest we don’t know. All we know is that between the Liars, Paige McCullers and Alison DiLaurentis — and now Syd — Emily’s social life is going to be quite hectic.
Ahh! We can’t wait to see Chloe in action as Rosewood’s new mystery girl….and to find out whether or not she’s trustworthy. But then again it’s Rosewood – everyone and their mother has dark secrets to hide and manipulation is the name of the game. Let’s just hope that this Sydney chick does right by Emily or she’ll be very sorry.
