A survivor of ABC Family’s short-lived Pretty Little Liars spinoff will soon be heading down Recovery Road.
Haley Lu Richardson, who played mean-girl Tess Hamilton on Ravenswood, will recur on ABC Family’s upcoming addiction-centric drama Recovery Road, TVLine has learned exclusively. The series centers around Maddie (Skins‘ Jessica Sula), a teen party girl who’s suddenly faced with a life-changing ultimatum: rehab or expulsion.
Richardson will play Ellie Dennis, a smart, ambitious “friend” of Maddie’s. Described as a “bitchy vixen,” Ellie is also a member of Speakeasy, her school’s secret society.
In addition to Ravenswood, Richard has appeared on Shake it Up!, Awkward and Law & Order: SVU.
Recovery Road premieres in 2016, along with Shadowhunters, a new supernatural drama based on the Mortal Instruments book series.
