MANILA, Philippines — Fresh from her Tony Awards attendance and speech in New York two days ago, internationally acclaimed Filipina singer-actress Lea Salonga announced today that she will star in the HBO Max remake of hit TV series “Pretty Little Liars.”

In the reboot, titled “Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin,” Salonga will portray Elodie, mom of Minnie (Malia Pyles). Described as “overbearing,” Elodie works overtime to keep Minnie safe as Minnie battles a trauma that happened when she was little. 

Joining Lea as new members of the cast as moms are “Dream Girls” star Sharon Leal; Elena Goode (“Straight Outta Compton”); “Orange is the New Black’s” Zakiya Young and Carly Pope (“Demonic.”)

On Twitter and Instagram, Lea marks this new milestone with posts that read, “So excited to be part of the cast of Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin!” and “Woooooooooot again!”



“The moms have descended upon the town of Millwood! And we have secrets and lies of our own (can’t let the children have all the fun)!” she enthused.

“Twenty years ago, a series of tragic events almost ripped the blue-collar town of Millwood apart. Now, in the present day, a group of disparate teen girls — a brand-new set of Little Liars — find themselves tormented by an unknown Assailant and made to pay for the secret sin their parents committed two decades ago… as well as their own. In the dark, coming-of-age, horror-tinged drama Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin, we find ourselves miles away from Rosewood, but within the existing Pretty Little Liars universe — in a brand-new town, with a new generation of Little Liars,” Deadline wrote as a description of the reboot.

Written by Aguirre-Sacasa and Calhoon Bring based on the bestselling books by Sara Shepard, “Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin” is set in the present day and will showcase a new story and new characters from its 2010 to 2017 series starring another Filipina like Lea, Shay Mitchell.
