Pretty Little Liars  “A” Day is swiftly approaching. On March 19, two years of red herrings, drama and teasing will come to a head when Emily, Spencer, Aria and Hannah discover who’s been tormenting and blackmailing them. Three of the stars of ABC Family’s run-away smash visited The View to discuss the big reveal.

Shay Mitchell (Rosewood's resident lady killer Emily Fields), Lucy Hale (Aria) and Troian Bellisario (Spencer) chatted with The View cohosts Sherri Shepherd and Elisabeth Hasselbeck about A and their cult following.

The three fashion plates stepped on to the set and Shepherd shouted over and over, “You’re so cute!”

Meanwhile, Hasselbeck asked Mitchell specifically about playing an LGBT teen.

“I’m so honored to be able to play Emily and bring that character to life,” Mitchell said. “I’ve received so many different comments from all the viewers saying that they’re able to relate to the character, and that she has given them the courage to be able to come out to their friends and family.”

Mitchell added, “If anything, if they feel less alone, that’s the best reward that I could ever have.”

Watch Hale, Mitchell and Bellisario here. It’s worth it just to hear Shepherd scream about their collective cuteness:
