We were joined on the Popternative show by Sasha Pieterse who stars in the new thriller, The Image of You, which was released in select theaters and available to buy on Digital on May 10th. Directed by Jeff Fisher (My Christmas Love, Christmas Camp), the film also stars Parker Young (Arrow, Imposters), Nestor Carbonell (Shōgun, Bates Motel), and Mira Sorvino (Shining Vale, American Crime Story).

The Image of You is a twisted tale of deception and desire based on the bestselling thriller by Adele Parks and follows identical twins Anna and Zoe (Pieterse) who find their bond tested over Anna’s new love, Nick (Young). While the trusting Anna is head over heels, her skeptical sister Zoe senses a web of deceit. But as Zoe digs for the truth, they’re all pulled into a dangerous game where honesty could prove fatal.

On relying on existing source material Sasha says, “I was told to kind of not read the book because not only are they very different, but you could maybe not make something original when it could have that opportunity. I love love love Adele [Parks] and I think she’s brilliant and I think this book is brilliant, but I love that they’re different. There’s different flavors, the ending is different, there’s a lot of things that are unique to the film.”

Sasha also discusses playing two characters in The Image of You, working on a thriller, and her time working on the original Pretty Little Liars as Alison including the big reveal with her character in season 4.
