Troian Bellisario on Twitter and the spotlight
MANILA, Philippines - Troian Bellisario of "Pretty Little Liars" was meant for a life in front of the camera.
Born to parents Donald Bellisario and Deborah Pratt, Troian started acting at the age of 3 in a film called "Last Rites." She also appeared in the television series "Quantum Leap" and "NCIS" (among others), programs produced by her father.
Troian was in Manila last February 27 with boyfriend, "Suits" star Patrick J. Adams. They met their fans and the Filipino press at the Marriott Hotel in Pasay City. In between their hectic schedule, the two did poi and enjoyed Pinoy mangoes.
After the meet-and-greet, press interviews, and shoots, the self-confessed backpackers proceeded to Palawan for a few days of rest and recreation before returning to the US.
In this video interview, Troian talks to Rappler about her upbringing, her web project "Lauren," her film project "Exiles," and Twitter:

When our camera stopped rolling, we asked Troian what her name means. "Woman from Troy," she told us, smiling.
Sassy, spirited, and centered, no other name could have been more perfect. - Rappler.com
