Annabeth Gish will portray Anne Sullivan, the mysterious woman assigned to uncover the ugly truth from each girl.
"Pretty Little Liars" has added Annabeth Gish to the cast line-up for its second season. The former Special Agent Monica Reyes depicter on "The X-Files" is tapped to play Anne Sullivan, a therapist who is assigned to speak with each girl about the Ian-related drama in first season's finale.
"Their parents get together and force them to see a therapist to deal with their issues about Alison and this unhealthy obsession with Ian," the show's executive producer Marlene King has said before. "The therapist is going to play a large role in the summer season and the therapist is going to be someone they think about being honest about 'A' with."
Season 2 of "Pretty Little Liars" will premiere June 14 on ABC Family. The story will be "very much more about the hunt for 'A' " after season 1 dealt with the hunt for Allison's killer.
Annabeth Gish starred as Eileen Caffee on "Brotherhood" before it was canceled in 2008. The 40-year-old is also known for her starring roles in films like "Shag", "Mystic Pizza" and "Double Jeopardy".
