Celebrities don't become famous overnight. They endure rejection, nerves and the neverending work that comes with every opportunity. Canadian actress Shay Mitchell made her big debut on American television when she starred on the Freeform series, "Pretty Little Liars" as Emily Fields. For seven years, Shay played a crucial part in the dramatic mystery series so many of us came to love. Now, we get to see where this journey began for her as she reveals the audition tape she sent to producers in Los Angeles, California.

While her hilarious commentary suggests her disbelief in how she even got the part, nevertheless the producers saw potential. No matter what, you rock Shay! We all start somewhere and for her, this was one major beginning to something extraordinary.
