DANCING WITH THE STARS

SASHA PIETERSE

Film and television star Sasha Pieterse is best known for her lead role on Freeform's Pretty Little Liars, which wrapped its seventh and final season earlier this year. Despite being only 12 years old when she landed the role on what would go on to become one of the network's most popular and successful shows, she held her own as the youngest regular cast member with already years of professional experience beneath her belt.

The Johannesburg native immigrated to America with her family for greater opportunities. The daughter of professional acrobatic dancers, Pieterse became accustomed to the rigors of a career in entertainment at an early age. When she was just four and a half years old, she met with a Los Angeles agent who quickly signed her, and she has been acting and modeling ever since.

Pieterse got her start in television in 2002 at the age of six, starring in the WB comedy series Family Affair, a remake of the late 1960s hit, as Buffy, opposite Gary Cole. She was awarded with a Young Artist's Award for her work on the series. She appeared in the hit series Heroes and guest starred in House M.D. She also starred in the telefilm Claire, opposite Valerie Bertinelli, and appeared in the Disney Channel Original Movie, Geek Charming.

Pieterse's first major film role was as the Ice Princess in Robert Rodriguez's The Adventures of Shark Boy and Lava Girl 3D, with Taylor Lautner and George Lopez. In 2007 she starred in The Air I Breathe, alongside Sarah Michelle Gellar. She also appeared in Good Luck Chuck, X-Men: First Class and the critically-acclaimed film Inherent Vice, directed by Paul Thomas Anderson and starring opposite Reese Witherspoon, Joaquin Phoenix and Martin Short.

In addition to her successful acting career, Pieterse has launched her singing career releasing four singles with co-writer and producer, Dan Franklin.

Sasha Pieterse is partnered with Pro Gleb Savchenko.
