Why You Recognize Margot From To All The Boys: Always And Forever

Teen romances must always end — even if that just means growing up! The hit Netflix trilogy To All the Boys I've Loved Before concludes with the premiere of the third installment, To All the Boys: Always and Forever, on Feb. 12, 2021. As fans eagerly wait to see if Lara Jean Covey (Lana Condor) ends up with Peter Kavinsky (Noah Centineo), the high school bad boy with a soft spot, it's tempting to look at what the cast has been up to off screen. You might even recognize some of the To All The Boys cast from other teen-centric films and TV shows.

Even Lara Jean's older sister, Margot, who is played by Janel Parrish, is a familiar face. While Parrish has appeared in all of the To All The Boys films thus far, the Hawaii native has been in the business since the late '90s. So, how has this youthful brunette managed to play high school and college students for more than a decade? Keep scrolling to find out why you might recognize Parrish and how many high school-era projects she's appeared in.

Janel Parrish is best known for 'Pretty Little Liars'

Janel Parrish certainly stays busy. Prior to the To All the Boys I've Ever Loved trilogy, Parrish famously brought fan favorite Pretty Little Liars character Mona Vanderwaal to life. The teen villain appeared on the Freeform series from 2010 to 2017, and Parrish reprised the role for the short-lived spinoff series The PerfectionistsParrish spoke highly of playing Mona to Hollywood Life, saying she was "SUCH a fun character to play." Parrish added, "I honestly wouldn't have wanted any other role ... I feel like she had so many personalities over the years, and it was an actor's dream to be able to play them all." 

Parrish has even teased that Pretty Little Liars may not be gone for good. "I vote for a musical movie since a lot of us also sing," she told the outlet. The PLL alum certainly can sing and dance. In fact, she competed on Season 19 of Dancing with the Stars, and has worked on musical adaptations of A Walk to Remember, per Broadway WorldParrish even put her love for husband Chris Long into song by releasing the ballad "Everything" in honor of their marriage

Even once To All the Boys reaches its conclusion, it's clear that the multi-talented Parrish won't be disappearing from the screen (or the stage) anytime soon.
