Bianca Lawson, who plays Maya St.
Germain on ABC Family's Pretty Little Liars, says she loves
her onscreen romance with Emily Fields (played by Shay Mitchell).
After a brief affair in season one,
Maya and Emily have reunited during the show's second season.
Lawson told lesbian entertainment
that she loves her onscreen romance.
“I just really love Maya and Emily's
love story,” Lawson said. “I'm such a romantic anyway. I'm a
sucker for a good romance, and I love them together. I'm so glad
they've had those tender moments, those intimate moments together.”
Lawson added that she supports marriage
“I honestly think it's ridiculous
that marriage equality is even an issue, that people are actually
debating it. Love is love and people are people. But we are in a
civil rights moment right now, and I feel really proud that I fell
into this character and into this storyline at a time when there are
so many boundaries being pushed and such a political conversation
about how gay Americans deserve the same rights as all other
