Troian Bellisario is featured in W Magazine. The actress sat down with the magazine while she was in New York City earlier this month.
In the issue, Troian talks the end of Pretty Little Liars, the final days of filming, wanting Spencer killed off, her new film, Feed, and so much more. Highlights can be found below.
On wanting Spencer to die on Pretty Little Liars: “I definitely tried [to get killed off],” she said. “A) You want a death scene, and B) On our show, your character becomes infinitely more interesting when you die. 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.”
On her film Feed: “I really wrote this because I wanted to embody this role, even though a lot of people said, ‘That might be putting yourself in a dangerous position’. But the good thing with the more time that passed, the more emotional distance I felt from my engagement with the illness. The tough thing is that is always alive in you and when you engage with it, that is so loud, but I am at a different point in my life.”
On the final days of filming PLL: “When they said, ‘That’s a series wrap on Keegan Allen [who plays Bellisario’s character’s romantic interest on the show],’ I was like, ‘Oh my God, my boyfriend is dead,’” recalled the actress. “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, 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. 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.”
