Pretty little liars star Ashley Benson who plays queen bee Hannah Marin says her role on the ABC hit drama was a break through for her career and has made her a huge hit with it's teenage viewers.
However stardom has not been the best ride for Benson as recently she has been receiving constant messages from an unknown source claiming to be "A" Who sends threatening notes to the actress/singer. This type of cyber stalking is what essentially takes place in the TV series pretty little liars and many believe that an over enthused fan is behind the texts.
Unfortunately this constant messaging from an anonymous source had led Benson to fear for her life after one such message read "I'm still here bitch...and it's not over till I say it is".
Police are working to figure out the origin of the messages but is proving difficult as the texts coming from a blocked number which uses an encrypting system making it harder for analysts to locate the origin of the texts.
When asked to comment Ashley said "it's creepy you know...one minute you're filming and you're getting these texts from A, buts it's fake. And the next moment, my phone vibrates and I get a threatening message from A. I've asked the cast and crew if they are playing a prank on me but they assured me they aren't so I'm kinda freaked out".
Miss Benson has hired 24 hourly security to protect her while her cyber stalker is still at large. This goes to show that although it looks as though celebrities lives are just all glitz and glamour, there is actually a darker side to the job which includes being harassed by strangers.
Makes you think twice about joining the entertainment industry.
