Troian Bellisario Continues To Be Amazing; Talks Mental Disorders, Considering Teen Shows for Awards & More with 'Larry King Now'

Troian Bellisario Continues To Be Amazing; Talks Mental Disorders, Considering Teen Shows for Awards & More with 'Larry King Now'

Troian Bellisario should be on the top, or at least top five of your list of celebrities to really follow and admire.

And here’s why: the 28-year-old Pretty Little Liars actress made an appearance on Larry King Now, which airs tonight, and talks about everything from battling anorexia and the ABC Family show she stars on and teen shows being considered for awards. Check it and watch:

On addressing her comments about teen shows being considered for major award shows: “No, the show was never nominated. This is the first year that we’ve kind of been put up for consideration and so what I wanted to write about was not saying, ‘We deserve a nomination,’ but, ‘Shouldn’t you—on the Academy, if you’re going to watch many different television shows and consider them within the context of their genre’—shouldn’t you watch our show and consider it within the context of its genre?”

On her battle with anorexia: “Of course. Of course I do [have hesitation]. Because it’s often sensationalized, and that was my problem with when I spoke about it in Seventeen magazine. I knew I wasn’t going to lie to them. You know, they asked me what I was like when I was 17 and I wasn’t going to say, ‘I was great,’ because I wasn’t. I was suffering from a mental disorder. But what I so often find is that it becomes about the facts: ‘How much weight did you lose? How were you treated? Were you hospitalized?’ And that’s not important to me. What is important is to talk about the feelings, to talk about the help that young girls and young men who have this problem can get if they find that they are suffering.”

On her favorite season of Pretty Little Liars, so far: “It’s a big toss-up between three and four because in three, I was very fortunate and the writers were kind enough to go with Spencer into the mental ward because we had hospitalized Mona, one of the characters on our show, and I felt that we were kind of treating the mental ward as kind of an insane asylum where the nut jobs went. And I kind of got frustrated and I said, ‘Mental illness is a very real thing. I have an experience with it, and honestly I don’t know why one of the girls isn’t hospitalized at this point. We go through enough stress.’ And they were kind enough to go, ‘You know what, let’s see what happens when Spencer gets pushed too far.’ And it was this wonderful season where I got to play all of these twists and turns, so maybe three.”

Alison Is Back in Rosewood on Tonight's 'Pretty Little Liars'

Alison Is Back in Rosewood on Tonight's 'Pretty Little Liars'

Looks like Emily (Shay Mitchell) and Spencer (Troian Bellisario) are those type of people now — the ones who go through other people’s trash.

In the new episode of Pretty Little Liars, “Whirly Girlie”, with the events of New York behind them and back in Rosewood, the Liars are unsettled to still be living under a cloud of secrets. Aria (Lucy Hale) is haunted by the recent past events, while Emily (Mitchell), Hanna (Ashley Benson) and Spencer (Bellisario) try to wrap their head around the new normal.

Alison (Sasha Pieterse), on the other hand, is still sleeping with one eye open as she is forced to stay at home with her family – who she doesn’t trust. Meanwhile, Jason’s (Drew Van Acker) odd behavior and Kenneth DiLaurentis’ search for Jessica starts to raise eyebrows about her disappearance.

“Whirly Girlie” airs TONIGHT @ 8PM ET/PT on ABC Family. 20+ pics inside…

Troian Bellisario Speaks Out for Teen Shows - Why Do They Get Snubbed?

Troian Bellisario Speaks Out for Teen Shows - Why Do They Get Snubbed?

Troian Bellisario has written a thought-provoking piece for THR about the merits of shows made for young people, and how they are so often overlooked.

The 28-year-old actress is careful not to compare Pretty Little Liars to any other show, but talks about the fact that teenage shows rarely get nominated for awards.

“Everyone says this is the golden age of television. There are so many wonderful shows, with new ideas and characters that push the envelope. There is an abundance of quality artists using their talents in this medium rather than just in film. And there are so many different ways to tell a story, a variety of styles and genres all being celebrated and explored,” Troian wrote. “So why is it that with all the different types of shows being recognized this Emmy season, the ones like mine, ‘teen shows,’ are written off as fluff? Guilty pleasures that are too youthful to exhibit accolade-worthy material. What if they are telling good stories too, just in a different way?”

Troian continued, “I’m not comparing our show to any other show, I’m not comparing myself to any other actor (especially not Bryan Cranston —please God, no!), but as someone on a teen soap I can tell you that I work with a cast and crew that searches for those same human truths, and who strives to convey those truths with compelling depth and excellence. We are just beholden to a different style of storytelling. And that is also worthy of serious consideration.”
