An all-new season of Teen Wolf kicked off this week! So, naturally, we’re freaking the eff out over seeing our favorites on our TV screens once again. But you may notice that Tyler Posey, Dylan O’Brien, Tyler Hoechlin and Holland Roden aren’t the only ones featured in the opening credits — Shelley Hennig and Arden Cho are in it, too!
The beautiful females who portray Malia & Kira, respectively, have recently been bumped up to series regular status, which means we’ll be seeing a lot more of them on arguably the best show on MTV. So, what better way to welcome them with open arms than by giving them a major shout-out for Woman Crush Wednesday? Just like we did for Holland, here are ten things you need to know about the fresh-faced Teen Wolf girls:
Shelley started off as a soap opera actress.
Like Ashley Benson, Shelley spent years on Days of Our Lives.
Talented doesn't even begin to describe Arden.
She was a cheerleader for 8 years, a gymnast for 6, plays the piano AND cello. Oh yeah, and she's a well-known Korean singer.

Shelley's got a beauty pageant background.
In 2004, she won Miss Teen USA!
Arden's got a beauty pageant background, too.
In 2004 — wow, same year as Shelley! — she was named Miss Korea Chicago and competed in the Miss Korea Pageant in Seoul, South Korea for the honor of representing South Korea in the Miss Universe pageant.

Shelley's an accomplished writer.
Two of her poems have been published in the Young Authors Book of Poetry.
AC's list of brands she's represented is really impressive.
Tokidoki, Reebok, Nike, McDonald's, Apple... NBD.
Shelley's no stranger to teen TV shows.
The Secret Circle, anyone?

And neither is Arden.
You may recognize her from an episode of Pretty Little Liars.

Shelley's an advocate against underage drinking.
After one of her older brothers was killed in a drunk-driving incident, she worked with a local Louisiana non-profit organization called CADA (Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse), mentoring peers and other youths about the impacts and consequences of drug and alcohol abuse.
Yeah, Arden's a pretty big deal.
In 2008, she was featured in the spring campaign for Alexander McQueen's teen line, McQ.
