Who needs Pretty Little Liars when you can hit the stage with Beyoncé?

Before Shay Mitchell ever decided to pursue acting, her dream was to become a marine biologist...or a backup dancer for the "Partition" crooner, she told Cosmopolitan. Although "that didn't work out," she would still jump at the chance if Bey came calling.

"That's not even a question," she replied, "Call me! See you later, I'm there! I've been like this far [demonstrates arm's length] from Beyoncé several times. Over Super Bowl weekend I saw her, and once at a restaurant - it's going to happen at some point. Not in a crazy way, but she is my role model because of everything she has been able to do for herself."

Maybe Bey will pop up on a special musical edition of PLL? We can dream.

Speaking of fans though, Shay also dished on a weird experience she had with one of her own, after rising to stardom with the success of the hit ABC Family show.

"[One fan] jumped on my back in the grocery store," she continued. "I was a little like, 'Whoa you're on my back, I've never met you!' But it was fine. They're bringing us into their living room once a week. So when they see us out they're like, 'Emily, hey!' They're very comfortable."

Very, very comfortable.
