Shay Mitchell is our eyes and ears on the set of the ABC Family series Pretty Little Liars, and she’s delivered us some great photos of swimming star, Missy Franklin.

Franklin’s onset to play herself opposite the show’s star, Mitchell, aka Emily Fields, a swimmer on the series, and from the photo above it appears Franklin is as fearless as ever.

Franklin, the five-time Olympic medalist from 2012 London Olympic Games, is not green when it comes to acting. She’s building her resume and acting chops! Just a little over five weeks ago she went toe-to-toe with movie stars Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn on the set of The Internship, due out in 2013.

Franklin has been turning heads, recently announcing her commitment to attend the University of California at Berkeley. For an Olympic star who electeded to remain amateur and compete at the NCAA level, Franklin has managed her brand exposure like a pro.

What’s next? The Golden Goggles Awards Show, where she will also star as one of the nominees for Female Athlete of the Year along side Dana Vollmer, Rebecca Soni and Allison Schmitt.

Missy like any other great swimmer might be interested in experiencing many different other
experiences out of the pool ! Great ! life is made out of variations , new discoveries , and it’s interesting to be aware of what they do outside the pool , as well as inside the pool .
U do a great Job Guys at swiwswam . thanks to your passion , i have learned so much
about the swimming world . I will always say thanks to M Phelps too . he changed the sport to be more appreciated and followed , and loved .

Keep up the great work, Mel and crew. As a swimmer most of my natural born life, I like to hear about ALL of our athletes and what they do. It is really cool to see swimmers take the reigns outside of interviews. I remember not being a fan of “Baywatch”, but watching it because Mel was on it. It was a real shame that there was not the strong PR for swimming back in ’92. I wold have loved to see Mel on SNL next to Farley.

Then save it for the social media!! I mean we are in the technology and information age, that is what social media is about. I just think their is a difference between swim news and swim tabloids.

You are arguing for no real reason ! get what u like , don’t look what u odn’t like ! make it simple ……..but please don’t come and tell swimswam what they should report or not report . thanks for your understanding .
