Shay Mitchell has played some of the most iconic roles on TV over the last several years, so it makes sense that it would be hard to say goodbye.
The Canadian actress’ big break came when she starred as Emily Fields, the shy jock on Pretty Little Liars from 2010-2017. Just a few years after the Freeform series ended, Mitchell stole a bunch of scenes during the first season of Netflix’s You by portraying Peach Salinger, the rich, domineering best friend to Beck (and one of the few who sees Joe Goldberg as he truly is).
In her latest TikTok video, Mitchell took part in the newly popular challenge of dressing up as characters you would be on a TV show. Of course, she was able to embody her own former roles while dancing to Curtis Waters’ song “Stunnin.’”
“What character should I be today?” she asked inside her closet before whipping out the outfits that best represent her most famous TV moments. That means sunglasses and lots of luxury vibes for Peach, Emily’s actual swim team tracksuit, and an eclectic look for Stella. We’re pretty impressed by how accurate each look was—proving that these characters are a part of Mitchell and still live on in her closet.
So, how did she do? let’s start with Peach, who deserved so much better and we miss her every day.
Then there’s Emily—which was obviously a 10/10.
Of course, Mitchell had to give some love to her latest character, Stella Cole, the charming, carefree social butterfly from Hulu’s Dollface. Stella would totally have a TikTok account just like Mitchell’s, btw.
Given that (spoiler alert) Peach was tragically killed by Joe on You, it was especially fun to be reacquainted with her.
Apart from revisiting some of her best roles, Shay Mitchell’s TikTok has been dedicated to quarantine dances and tons of videos of her baby girl, Atlas Noa, who was born in October. Her YouTube channel has been a place for her to get real about her journey as a mother—she even posted some intimate footage of her delivery for her show on the platform called “Almost Ready.” She’s also been honest about the struggles she’s faced and opened up about topics such as mommy-shaming and Internet criticism. But her TikTok, so far, has been reserved for more lighthearted activities, like goofing around and inspiring us to re-binge You.
