Ashley Benson stars as one of A’s playthings on Pretty Little Liars, but in her latest role, the actress is taking control. In Pixels, out in theaters Friday, she plays Lady Lisa, a fierce and ultra-glam video game warrior who’s suddenly brought to life when aliens attack the earth using footage of arcade characters from a 1980s time capsule. But even when Benson isn’t busy kicking ass onscreen alongside co-stars Adam Sandler, Josh Gad, and Kevin James, she’s still focused on the camera, snapping tons of pics to share with her fans on Instagram.
