This is something we definitely did not know at all!
Troian Bellisario admitted that she actually wanted to get killed off of Pretty Little Liars once upon a time.
“I definitely tried [to get killed off],” she shared with W magazine, adding, “A) You want a death scene, and B) On our show, your character becomes infinitely more interesting when you die.”
Troian continued, “I honestly felt that for this world to be truly dangerous, one of the Liars would have to die. Otherwise, ‘A’ is just always putting them in danger and still saving them.”
She also spoke more about that final moment on set, and the moment she broke down. Spoiler – it’s heartbreaking.
“When they said, ‘That’s a series wrap on Keegan Allen,’ I was like, ‘Oh my God, my boyfriend is dead,’” she says. “And the next day, they were very nice and had us all do a scene together, so it was all the girls.”
“I’ll never forget the last shot we did was of Lucy [Hale], and we were all behind the camera hysterically crying…Afterwards, we knew they were going to take us outside, and usually there are maybe 15 people [from the crew] hanging around. There were like 50 people hanging around because we had these yearbooks and everyone wanted to be there,” Troian said.
“I’ll never forget, everybody got kind of quiet and started to kind of push us [forward]. We were just moving as a fivesome, and I realized, ‘They are about to say the words.’ And then it was done.”
