The two first met on the set of "Pretty Little Liars" and teamed up for "PLL" spinoff "The Perfectionists" in 2019, and they have developed a real-life friendship off-screen too. "Sasha and I have always been so close," Parrish told POPSUGAR about their friendship. "When we had scenes together in "PLL", we were always fighting.

Maybe it was our spirituality, or maybe it was just our hearts."
