Cape Town – We love it when local born celebs do well in Tinsel Town like Charlize Theron, Sharlto Copley, Arnold Vosloo and others. 

The latest example is Joburg native Sasha Pieterse who is a star on the American teen drama Pretty Little Liars. Sasha, who plays Allison on the hit TV show, has lots of hidden talents so we’ve made a list of 5 things you might not know about her. 

1) Although Sasha was born in the Rainbow Nation she left SA when she was 5 with her parents to move to America. 

The 20-year-old is patriotic though; here she is supporting the Blitzbokke:

2) She’s a country singer. 

Here’s the official video for the multi-talented performer's country-rock single called R.P.M 

3) She has two adorable and huge dogs.

Here they are, in a post with her on Instagram.

4) She's going to get married and her fiancé is a hottie.

His name is Hudson Sheaffer and he’s not a celeb, but very easy on the eyes. Here’s a cute snap of him posted on Sasha’s Instagram. 

I guess I'll keep him ??

5) She models.

This should come as no surprise, because she has a face and body to die for, but Sasha also modelled throughout California before starring on Pretty Little Liars. Here she is sizzling on the cover of a magazine. 

I'm in love with my @maniacmagazine cover!!!!!! So thankful to have worked with such amazing people xx
