You got to love a woman who in the middle of baring her soul plucks off her false eyelashes.

After seven seasons, Shay Mitchell, a Filipina/Canadian, is saying goodbye to her character on the hit show Pretty Little Liars.
Though the finale won’t be shown until 2017, Pretty Little Liars officially wrapped forever.
“Please excuse my crying because this was a very emotional moment for me,” she wrote to her fans. “I wanted to be able to share this moment with all of you, who have helped me get to where I am today. I am so thankful for all of the support that you guys have given me the past seven years, and I am excited to continue this journey with all of you.”
Over the last week, the cast and crew have documented their celebrations, tears, and flashback moments from the show on social media, but none were as raw and deep as Shay Mitchell’s good-bye video she posted Tuesday, November 1, after the final scene of “PLL” wrapped.With tears rolling down her face, the brunette stunner continues: “I don’t know what my life would be like without Pretty Little Liars. It has changed me, in more ways than I could attempt to count. … The best seven years of my life have gone by the quickest.”
Watch the tearful good-bye below.
