Troian Bellisario's Next Project 'Feed' Reveals Her Personal Struggle With Anorexia

When we heard about the project that Troian Bellisario was filming with Tom Felton, we were so excited because it was two of our favorite fandoms coming together.

But know that we know more about the project — called Feed — we’re even more excited about the story.

The film, which Troian wrote, chronicles a woman’s struggle with anorexia and is based on her own personal fight with the illness.

“I sat down and I wrote a version of my own story. It’s not the exact events, but what I wanted to do with the film was get the audience to understand what it sounds like and what it feels like to be struggling with that illness,” Troian shared.

“I struggled with anorexia for many years and one of the most difficult things about that was it was very tough for me to explain to my family and friends why it was so hard for me to disengage with that,” she says.

“It’s not a disease you can see, you just hear something in your head that tells you not to eat — for many, many different reasons for different people. And I realized that I wouldn’t be able to fully heal until I could get people that I loved to empathize with that, to understand where I was coming from.”

Obviously, this is a movie we’ll all need to watch together.

“I’m really, really proud of it,” Troian added. “I’m very excited to share it with people.”

Troian is also pictured at Build Series in NYC on Thursday (April 20).
