Ashley Victoria Benson born on December 18, 1989 is an American actress and model, best known for playing Abigail Deveraux on the soap opera Days of our Lives (2004–2007), Mia Torcoletti on the supernatural television series Eastwick (2009–2010), Hanna Marin on the mystery-thriller television series Pretty Little Liars (2010–present) and Brit in the crime thriller film Spring Breakers (2012).
In 1999, Benson started pursuing an acting career. She began working and appearing on a number of commercials, but quickly made the transition into film and television. In 2004, Benson signed a three-year contract with the daytime television series, Days of our Lives, and on November 12, 2004 began her role as Abigail “Abby” Deveraux, the oldest child of supercouple Jack Deveraux and Jennifer Horton, until May 2, 2007. She explained that, because of the number of episodes filmed a day, “you can’t really mess up; you have to know all of your lines”, and that she did not get a break from work.
In 2011, Benson started dating singer Justin Bieber’s former “swagger coach” Ryan Good. In 2013, after months of speculation, Benson confirmed in an interview with Seventeen that she and Good were no longer a couple, but still remained good friends.
