Troian Bellisario: Spencer Owns My Heart

Troian Bellisario: Spencer Owns My Heart

Troian Bellisario was the perfect person to portray Spencer Hastings in Pretty Little Liars.

The 25-year-old actress chatted with PopEater about her character on the show, coming from a Hollywood family and much more. Check out some highlights below:

On being in love with her character Spencer: “I cannot even tell you how much I love Spencer. She’s so close to my heart, personally. We have very kindred spirits in that we’re type A superachievers. We have the same kind of drive. She’s the same place I was at one point, trapped in the expectations of the community and her parents, their ideals of what perfect is supposed to be. She’s sort of so reined in — she needs to be shaken up.”

On the fans reactions to the show: “Everyone I’ve talked to has been really sweet, telling me they love the show. It’s so awesome. Everybody’s really been positive about the show, and I’m really grateful and want people to enjoy it. But I don’t know how much I’m really into celebrating. What you have to love is the work, not the success.”

On how tough it is to be an actress coming from a Hollywood family: “I had an awareness of how tough it really is from my parents. To me, it’s never been, ‘You get to be a star!’ It’s been things like putting on a brave face when they ask you to reshoot a scene at the end of a hard day’s work. My parents were pretty supportive. I don’t know how much my dad wanted me to be an actress all my life, but he never denied me of it.”
