Despite her numerous memorable television and movie roles, there’s no denying that Sasha Pieterse is best known for playing Rosewood’s ultimate queen bee/femme fatale Alison DiLaurentis. She’s not only an excellent actress — which is why she captures Alison’s conniving personality so well  — but she also L-O-V-E-S playing such an intense character which just goes to show how committed she is to the role. However, in real life, this Pretty Little Liars star (and country crooner!) is as sweet as apple pie a la mode! The gorgeous blonde is constantly connecting with fans via twitter, brightening red carpet events with her bright, genuine smile and inspiring trends with her impeccable and relatable style! And today, February 17th, marks a very exciting day in Sasha’s life — her 18th birthday! So in honor of this special milestone event, we’re celebrating with stunning pictures of Sasha and nineteen fun facts about her (one for each year and one for good luck). Join the festivities in the gallery below!

Sasha was born in Johannesburg, South Africa on February 17, 1996. This pretty little adventurer has since traveled the world with her parents, who were once professional dance partners!
