In “Pretty Liars: Original Sin”, an acting ensemble is involved, which includes both beginners and experienced veterans. The HBO Max show, which debuted in July 2022, takes place in the Pretty Liars franchise, and while it has the same continuity as the original show, Original Sin focuses on an entirely new set of characters. Of course, the mysterious “A” is still the main antagonist, but the identity of the figure remains unknown.
While the action of “Pretty Liars” took place in Rosewood, Pennsylvania, the action of “Original Sin” takes place in the same place, but in the city of Millwood. The show focuses on a group of girls- Imogen, Noah, Faran, Tabby and Mouse – who come together to complete a common mission before becoming targets for “A”. Original Sin also delves into the past through the family members of the main characters, who have their own secret related to the death of a classmate in the 90s.
While “Original Sin” may be linked to “Pretty Little Liars” by future plot points, the two shows do not share common or supporting actors at launch. “Original Sin” follows the same pattern as “Pretty Liars”, but a different city leads to a set of new faces. While some of the Original Sin cast may be recognizable, others will call the HBO Max show their breakthrough role. However, here’s a character guide to “Pretty Liars: Original Sin.”
Bailey Madison as Imogen Adams
Bailey Madison plays the role of Imogen Adams, a pregnant teenage girl who attends Millwood High School.
