Sasha Pieterse was born on February 17, 1996 in Johannesburg, South Africa. She moved to the US in 2001 with her family and grew up in Las Vegas. Her parents were members of a professional acrobatic dance team, which helped her become exposed in the entertainment industry. Thus, she began acting at age six, when she had a main role on the television series Family Affair. In 2005, she made her theatrical debut in The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 3-D.
In the mid 2000s, still a child actress, she continued her career by appearing on various television shows, including House, Wanted, CSI: Miami, and Without a Trace. In 2009, she played the recurring character Amanda Strazzulla in Heroes. At age 12 in 2008, she landed the role of Alison DiLaurentis in Pretty Little Liars. The show became successful and Pieterse, along with the rest of the main cast, became popular. She simultaneously starred in the TV film Geek Charming as well as in the movies G.B.F. and Inherent Vice.
Has Sasha Pieterse had Plastic Surgery?
The 20-year-old actress rose to fame for her portrayal of the mean queen Alison in Pretty Little Liars. Her performance on the show was notable because in real life, she was the youngest of all the main casts as she was only 13 at the time, yet she managed to pull off a more mature look to effectively play an antagonist. Several years have passed and she’s officially an adult now. Surely, she looks more glamorous than her younger self.
Still, fans are wondering if there’s a possibility that the young actress has undergone plastic surgery to enhance her looks and appear more sophisticated. After all, it’s not unusual that young actresses opt for cosmetic surgeries. For some, this is the way to get noticed in Hollywood as the standards of beauty in Los Angeles can be illogical sometimes, that young women fall for it. However, it’s more apparent that Pieterse’s beauty is natural and not cosmetically enhanced. If there’s change in her face and body, it probably is just her biology. After all, she was only a teenager when she gained mainstream notice.
