Shay Mitchell’s resume can go on for days. From modeling to acting to writing to being an entrepreneur the star has dipped her toes into nearly every form of money making in Hollywood. However, it was just seven years ago when the biggest break of her life came to her in the form of the hit show Pretty Little Liars. For her first lead role starting less than a decade ago, Mitchell has a comfortable small fortune, to say the least.

While Mitchell did begin modeling around the age of 11 for an international modeling agency when she was still located in Vancouver, Canada, her first role on a larger scale came in 2009. She signed with a theatrical agency and scored an appearance on Degrassi: The Next Generation, Rookie Blue, and starred in Sean Paul’s music video “Hold My Hand.” While these gigs weren’t huge, these were stepping stones to a bigger experience in the following year.

In 2010, Mitchell’s career took on the role that would skyrocket her career. She was cast as Emily Fields in the ABC Family (now Freeform) television series Pretty Little Liars. It is rumored that the main cast makes around $42,000 per episode, which includes Mitchell. However, she didn’t settle there. Mitchell kept her modeling career alive and well in the years following the start of Pretty Little Liars. She signed on as a spokesperson for Pantene Nature Fusion shampoo line. Mitchell then managed to become the face of American Eagle’s “Live Your Life” campaign in 2012. She also scored deals working with Nike and Biore. Mitchell’s work designing a sunglasses line with Quay Australia also began in 2014. As far as acting, Mitchell focused primarily on the series as it became a wild success, especially within these years. She made one other acting appearance in the short film Immediately Afterlife in 2013.

However this isn’t the end for Mitchell. 2016 has already brought new acting opportunities for her. Mitchell has already appeared in the films Dreamland and Mother’s Day this year.
