Top 10 Pretty Little Liars Characters

The Top Ten

1 Hanna Marin Hanna Olivia Marin is a fictional character created by Sara Shepard for the Pretty Little Liars book series, and later developed for the Freeform television series adaptation by I.

Hanna is funny, cute and lightens up the mood with her jokes. She's also extremely protective of the ones she love like her mom, the other liars and Caleb. She's also intelligent, though she seems like the dumb blonde. In the finale of season 1, Hanna was the one who didn't trust the police officer and told him that she had written a note for her mom. She also doesn't care what other people think of her and is really daring and brave. She always stands up for herself and especially for the ones she love like Caleb's foster mom. I think Hanna is a very deep and complex character and it takes a lot of "reading between the lines" to understand her personality. She's very smart, people just don't see it. She isn't book smart, but she's got a sharp mind that helps the liars a lot in times of crisis.

She was very funny and loyal. I despised her at first but later on she beacame my favorite character in the whole series.

Hanna is quite a complex character and I think Ashley Benson plays her brilliantly. She is funny, smart, brutally honest but on the flip side she has a vulnerable side that I love. I've always felt that Hanna is the most loyal of the girls and puts everyone else before herself, she was always more worried for Caleb's safety than her own. When I started off watching season 1 I felt I would like Aria most but Hanna slowly won me over.

She's my favorite Liars. She always have the one-liner. Ugh, I love her!
When she said to Mona in that house" "Going somewhere? ", that was just heaven.

2 Spencer Hastings

Spencer Jill Hastings is simply the best written character to exist. Of course she did some stupid things at times but I think ever Pretty Little Liars character did. She was the smart one out of the group and saved everyone so many times yet she never bragged about it or was arrogant or annoying. She was an amazing friend to all of the Liars and always helped them out. Even though she was the 'nerd' she was never afraid to speak or stand up for herself. She was the only one who really stood up to Alison when she was treating her or the others badly. Spencer was soft and funny but she was also a huge badass. Her development was genuinely underrated. She turned from the little nerdy girl to a confident woman. It always amazes me how strong she was, she went through the most. With her family, her need to be perfect, her drug problems. But she always came out stronger and that's what I admire her for. I miss my best girl so much

Sexy, gorgeous, insanely intelligent, funny, and can be snobby when she wants to be. If Spencer wasn't a part of the liars they wouldn't know a thing to do. Without her they'd still be at square one. Even though she went to radley she's still the one most focused on finding A. Toby shouldn't be second best though, she deserves so much better than him. I get he wants to find out what happened to his mom but it was selfish of him to give the van to a just for a file. Especially when he knows how A is.

Love Spencer. She is easily the most interesting character and is always focused on protecting the others. She also gets a harder time than them despite being one of the most forgiving. Emily is always portrayed as "the nice one" but I think she is actually the meanest. Like when she is mad at Hanna for not being as mad at Spencer as she is...seems like typical mean girl behaviour to me.

Spencer is intelligent and witty. She is a very strong character, which is shown through the way that she is constantly defending her friends. -A (Mona) actually admires Spencer's intelligence and bravery. She taught us that it is okay to not be perfect. She puts other before herself, this is shown when she says in the Season 3 finale 'I stopped worrying about myself a long time ago'. She defends Jason and Melissa, besides the mounting evidence toward them being -A and killing Bethany. She is the BEST character ever!

3 Aria Montgomery Aria Marie Montgomery is a fictional character and a central protagonist in the Pretty Little Liars series by Sara Shepard.

I love Aria. Always comfortable being herself and actually looks out for all of her friends. Often the peacekeeper when the rest are having a row and never mean just for the sake of it. Like when Hanna is terrified about Aria finding out she hooked up with her brother, Aria goes out of her way to make sure she is okay.

Aria is my favorite and has the best personality of all the liars, also she caring for her brother Mike and is caring to people she is close with like her family. She is a unique character on the show from her personality to her fashion style and has a spunky attitude that I like. Aria is mature for her age and is smart in dangerous situations, also is always there for the liars all the time. She is a cute pretty girl that I can hangout with or can probably date and is cool to be around, also is a outgoing person that is bold, fearless, and fierce.

How can you not love Aria? She's gorgeous, clever and always there for each of the liars. She's definitely got the best romance story: Ezra then Jake... now the news about Ezra! She's also incredibly close to her family, which is cute and always interesting to see a few of the arguments which can be totally relatable!

My favorite. Even her name has a nice sound. She's so cool, artsy (and I usually dislike the artsy book artsy people. Not my kinda subject) And she has a cool storyline. And if the theory of her being A is true, she is absolutely brilliant

4 Alison DiLaurentis

! I love Ali so much! She is by far the best liar, she is sexy, beautiful, smart, funny, confident and knows what she wants and isn't afraid to do whatever it takes to get it. She can be a bit rude and manipulative sometimes but we all have good and bad qualities about ourselves and I think it's better then to be boring! Also, to get what you want you may have to hurt people in the process and if other people find it rude that is their problem! She is an awesome leader but maybe should toughen up a little, instead of leaving her friends to deal with her mess. Overall, she is amazing, so talented, mysterious, passionate, daring, straight-talking and full of suspense. Her character is very complex and I think Sasha Pieterse plays her perfectly. She always turns me on when she's on screen and I wish I was more like her! Go Alison!


Alison is always been my fave character because she is beautiful and mysterious also she has an I treating story.

Alison has a great, girly style and a bold and fierce personality. I love how mysterious she is and how confident she is with herself. Love watching every Alison scene!

5 Emily Fields

She can be funny sometimes, but she's always been an interesting character to me. She goes through a lot! I'm sure this season has lots in store for her. There's cars crashing through her house, and family services after her. Emily's a great character. She'd be better without Paige, though. I like seeing her character on screen without Paige. It makes her a whole lot more fun to watch.

How is Emily this low!? Emily is a bit quiet and shy but she stands up for herself when she needs too! The poor girl has almost gotten killed multiple times! She is also the sweetest and nicest person out of everyone. She's also gorgeous.

Can't understand how she's number 5. I like a lot Spencer too but I have to vote Emily. Shy, brave and extremely beautiful. Always suffering a lot because of A. I just love her! She need a good girlfriend to get popular but she's actually incredible

Why is Em so low?!?! Spencer is my favourite character but Emily had me from the beginning. She is so sweet and shy. Is it because she is gay? I personally think, although Alison is a very interesting and manipulative character who is smart and can get her way, Emily is so much nicer and deserves to take her place in 4th at least.

6 Mona Vanderwaal

She is really the most interesting character in this show.

I feel bad for her all the time though.

Even though she didn't fully admit it, she has been trying to get the liars to forgive her since season 3.

Remember the fire at the lodge? Mona screamed that she'll "never get to know who she is", referring to Redcoat. That same episode, Hanna stated that if (Spencer, but the same applies to Mona) didn't know who Redcoat was, "you are still one of us." Mona had been trying to discover Redcoat's identity and tell the Liars throughout all of season three. She fooled everyone into thinking she was on A's side; Toby, the Liars. Everyone except Charlotte, obviously.

After 5x12 it is more than clear whose side she's on. And I think after what she did for them in that episode that she deserves the Liars' forgiveness. Sure, her plan failed, but she proved that she was willing to die for them - and almost did on a few occasions.

By season 7, when Mona is ...more

Just an amazing character. So sassy and believable as all of her different personalities.

Hands down my favorite. We all thought she was just a boring sidekick at the beginning until she pulled that awesome A card.

Don't judge, but I really like Mona! Crazy Mona was alright, but I loved popular Mona back in season 1 and 2. It was so cool to see this popular side of her. She was an awesome sidekick to Hanna, and I loved her witty and funny lines. I hope they bring funny Mona back this season!

7 Toby Cavanaugh

He should be a regular on the show as he is the best male character on the show and much more interesting than Ezra and Caleb combined. The only reason I believe he's not is because Keegans last name is Allen and the main cast list goes in alphabetical order therefore he would be billed first before Trojan Bellesario but it's a stupid and unfair reason if you ask me. Spencer is the best female character on the show therefore Toby being the best male character it was inevitable and a smart move putting them together. Those two are so good together they can have their own show. Another point to be proven that Toby is the best male character and one of the best if not the best character of the entire show, in season 3 Toby was given a central role and the best storyline that any character including Spencer has been given, in season 4 Ezra was given the same opportunity but wasn't nearly interesting enough to effectively pursue it and finally Caleb of all characters played by Tyler ...more

Okay, I'm a die-hard Spoby shopper, so this was an easy choice. He's my favorite boyfriend out of the others! Toby is a hottie, and he's totally amazing and a super interesting character. His character development is going great, and they're showing his sensitive side, which is something refreshing to see. I love Toby

Toby is a hottie. I felt bad for him in season 1 because he was getting death threats and people would cross the side walk because they saw him coming. Toby is a strong character, and I'm happy to see that Spencer is nice to him.

Toby is about as interesting as a dishwasher. His character is always trying to get involved and won't leave Spencer alone when she is trying to do something that doesn't involve him. He also thinks that a massage from him will solve all of Spencer's problems.

8 Caleb Rivers

By far my fave, he's such a sweetheart, and the most loyal boyfriend to Hanna. He is honestly all I want in a guy. He's so talented with computers and technology, as well as his super sad past which I just admire him for. Also he's like really cute and that shaggy hair though?

I hope you have fate to look up for your bravery

I think that Caleb is the best bad boy and the perfect boyfriend of all them!

Caleb is my favourite character in the show!

9 Maya St. Germain

Maya was pretty and outgoing. Her character actually had some humor. I did not agree with a lot of things she said and did but at least I could watch her on the screen without cringing.

Maya deserved more. She was a hilarious, strong character that took no crap from anyone. She saw the best in everyone and made a lasting impression in everyone. She didn't have to die.

I love Maya! Why comment in this section if all you have to say is bad things, go back to the Aria comments idiots!

I miss maya a lot

10 CeCe Drake

I love her she is a very mysterious character she keeps me hanging waiting for the next episode

Best Character and adds a new dimension to the show. Wish she was on it more often

Really interesting and mysterious character

Ce ce is a marvellous char played by the actor so brilliantly. Beautiful, charming, mysterious & the best villian in rosewood. I loved the way she was portrayed & loved it when she was A. She is a beauty too. No wonder her admirers are numerous

The Contenders

11 Noel Kahn

He was gone for the first half of Season 4. He will return in the finale. Even though, he is kinda creepy but he is very sexy.

The show didn't do him justice. Noel's character was greatly expanded in the books.

I don't like him, he is really weird.

He is a nerd

12 Jenna Marshall

I love Jenna, I think she is not the person you must be afraid of. She is so beautiful. I understand that she is that bad cause what "the 5" had done... She has got a good character.

Even though she can scare me, her character is a real nice addition to the show.

I love her character she is very unexplainable but I feel like she is perfect for this show

I love the fact that she can be as manipulative and strong as Alison even when she is blind

13 Mike Montgomery

I miss him! Cody Christian<3 he hasn't been here since season 2, and I miss him. So glad he's coming back in Gamma Zeta Die.

He gets my heart pounding when he enters the episode because I'm worried if Mona will be with him

He is very cute boy, but very mysterious and suspicious.

So nice of you to think about your sister like that

14 Jason DiLaurentis

Where has this guy been!? I miss him. He's an awesome character. If Jake leaves, I hope they allow him to be with Aria. Jason is a really hot and awesome character. I hope they reveal more about his past soon.

He's been my favorite since beginning. I really ship him and Aria and was disappointed that he wasn't given much screen time

Handsome, hot, kind of mystic, independent and rather quiet but still lovely and honestly! He's always alone but stays strong though. just the best pll guy of all! Don't get how aria could choose Ezra instead of him?!

In my opinion he should be in more drama it's fun watching him

15 Ashley Marin

I love her. She tries so hard to protect Hanna...sometimes with awful concequences

I just really like Hanna's mom for some reason haha

She is such a good and interesting person. Hanna Has luck.

Best mom ever! Except for the fling with Jason

16 Ezra Fitz

Why isn't Ezra in the top ten AT LEAST? He's amazing and so kind hearted and sweet! Not even to mention good looking. If he was my teacher I would have have done the same as Aria!

I couldn't stand Ezra. Am I the only one who thinks its weird that his eyes are automatically drawn to teenage girls?

He's just adorable and him and Aria are the cutest couple ever

Ezra is so sweet!

17 Paige McCullers

Don't kill me, but I think she is annoying. Always wanting to protect emily like she her 2 year old child

Truly, and utterly, she's not that bad a character. Sure, she stared (and ended) a little (a lot) shaky, but in the middle, a good character. She had some really memorable moments, such as, saving Spencer from A on the Ghosttrain? ANyone REMEMBER THAT? HUH? HUH?

Don't fix your friendship with Emily fields you are butter off without her

She has been through so much and it was hard for her to be herself and fully come out of the closet. She has realistic problems and I think LGBT teens can totally relate to her story.

18 Ella Montgomery

She is very pretty mommy

She's so nice and caring, like I watching Piper again. I love her

She is my favorite. I love charmed so much

Why is this charmed one not in the top 10?

19 Alex Santiago
20 Melissa Hastings

At first I didn't like her, but actually she's a really interesting character.

She's so hot, should've been more on the show.

Love her so much

She stunning

21 Wren Kingston

He's so hot and he never took advantage of spencer

22 Isaac Colbert

Don't even remember who this Isaac is... WHERE IS WREN? He should be #5 after Hanna, spencer, aria and emily (no order of them 4 because they r equally amazing)

23 Jake (Unknown Last Name)

Don't hate me, but I'm loving the mystery of Jake. The actor Ryan Guzman is definitely a hottie, but what drew me to him is his mysterious character. We don't know where he came from, but he's all of a sudden here. I feel like there's plenty of twists with Jake, and I want to see his relationship with Aria thrive. I hope they allow Jake to stick around, and without Ezra and Aria together :( Ezra is going to mess Jake and Aria up, I hate that! Jake has so much potential!

I love Jake he was an awesome character and he's amazing

I think Aria could have been happy with him. Nice guy.
