If you grew up in the 1990s, you definitely recognize Larisa Oleynik as the kickass girl who could morph into a gel-like liquid in the Nickelodeon’s hit series, The Secret World of Alex Mack. You probably also know her as Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s crush, Bianca Stratford, from the awesome teen movie, 10 Things I Hate About You, which also stars Julia Stiles and Heath Ledger. And if you’re a Mad Men fan like we are, then you definitely remember her as Ken Cosgrove’s endearing wife Cynthia. So you can only imagine how excited we were to spot her in mysterious new photos from the Pretty Little Liars Season 3 mid-season finale entitled “The Lady Killer”!
Now here’s the big question: Who is Larisa playing? Our money’s definitely on Ezra Fitz’s ex-girlfriend, Maggie — who he knocked up right after high school graduation. Additionally, we know that Ezra’s mother, Dianne Fitzgerald, is none too pleased about his relationship with Aria Montgomery — so plotting with his baby momma would be the perfect way to shake things up in Ezria Land. Nothing’s for certain of course but, judging by Aria’s expression of uttermost shock in the photo above, we have a feeling Rosewood’s hot couple is about to be faced with an unexpected blast from the past!
So tell us: Do you think Larisa Oleynik is playing Maggie in the Pretty Little Liars Season 3, Episode 12? And do you think she ending up keeping the baby and that Ezra could very well be a father?
*UPDATE 8/17/12* — It has been confirmed that Larisa Oleynik is 100% for sure playing Maggie on the show. WHOA BABY!
