Portrayed By:

Ashley Benson

Hanna Olivia Marin is one of the main characters in the Pretty Little Liars television series on ABC Family. She is portrayed by Ashley Benson.


Hanna used to be overweight prior to Alison's disappearance. Despite being the sweetest of the bunch, she was constantly made fun of by Alison for being overweight, calling her Hefty Hanna. After Alison went missing, Hanna befriended Mona and lost weight and became popular over the summer. The newly minted queen bee, Hanna, wins Homecoming Queen but is constantly reminded by A of her dorky days as "Hefty Hanna".

Even though Hanna is one of the most popular and prettiest girls at school, she is generous and kind. She is the boldest and the most outspoken of the four girls often making snarky comments, not afraid to say what she really thinks of a person. However, she is very gullible and ends up trusting people easily.

Hanna is witty and sassy but also innocent, caring and thoughtful. She does everything to keep her loved ones safe from A. She is protective of her friends and shows her fierce side when defending them. Hanna's sarcasm and sense of humor often makes her come across as 'ditsy'. However, she is actually quite smart and bright. Her strong instinct has often led her to find many a clue about A and she also scored well on the SAT's. Hanna tends to get in trouble owing to her impulsive and rebellious nature. After Spencer, Hanna is the one who has shown most effort, strength and dedication to find out who A is.

Physical Appearance

Hanna has a beautiful heart shaped face complimented with piercing baby blue eyes, full lips and dimpled smile. She has a curvaceous frame with slim, shapely legs. Her golden blonde hair was long; she cut it short before the start of senior year in Season 3. Her skin is light with a milk and rose complexion which sums up her innocent and playful personality. In Season 5, Hanna again, after Alison comes back cuts her hair short with black highlights and has a curvy body. Hanna does this because she doesn't want to look like Alison or be associated with her, but still has to help cover and take care of her.

Prior to the "Pilot," Hanna was a larger form of herself, and because of her increased weight gained the nickname 'Hefty Hanna' from Alison.
