TVLine Items: Ravenswood Adds Beauty Starlet, Fox Greenlights Masterchef Spin-Off and More!

Ravenswood has added quite the beauty.

Beauty and the Beast‘s Nicole Gale Anderson has joined ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars spin-off as the “feisty and disarming” leading lady Miranda, TVLine has confirmed. Described as “a fiercely independent foster kid,” the character is confident but “uses her wits to cover her emotional scars.”
