Shay Mitchell: 'Sexuality Doesn't Matter'

Shay Mitchell heats up this feature from Complex‘s June 2012 issue.

Here’s what the the 25-year-old Pretty Little Liars actress had to share with the mag:

On sexuality: “I think it’s the same now as it was before I’d played the character. I’ve always felt like you should love who you love — sexuality doesn’t matter. It would be so awesome if I didn’t get questions like, ‘How did you feel?’ It would be so cool in the future if it weren’t even an issue to anybody anymore. People would see two girls kissing on TV and it wouldn’t be like, ‘On this show, two lesbians! Dun-dun-dun!’ It wouldn’t ever even get brought up.”

On preparing to play a lesbian in PLL: “Honestly, I didn’t do anything. I know people who’ve played gay characters and they’d hang out at a gay bar or ask questions. I know what it’s like to love somebody, and my character loved a girl, so that’s how I played it.”
