You probably know Troian Bellisario as Spencer Hastings from the ABC Family hit TV show Pretty Little Liars, but the 25-year-old actress has been in the business since she was three. She's currently starring in a WIGS web-series called Lauren as a soldier in the army reporting a rape. BuzzFeed got the chance to talk to Troian over the phone when she was on a quick break while filming the next season of Pretty Little Liars.
You only had two days to prepare for your role in Lauren. How did you get ready to actually become a soldier, with all the intricacies like walking and saluting properly?
You know, my father was in the military and one of the first things I said was was that I need somebody who is military trained, who can teach me how to walk and salute like a soldier and who will not placate me, or be like, "that was really good for an actor!" I was like "No Bullshit! I need to know when I'm looking bad and when it's wrong and when I'm doing it right."
