Troian Avery Bellisario (born October 28, 1985) is an American actress and the daughter of producers Donald P. Bellisario and Deborah Pratt. She made her film debut at the age of 3 in Last Rites. She made several TV and movie appearances in her teen years (most of the TV appearances were in shows produced by her father - in fact, Last Rites is the elder Bellisario's first [and to date only] feature film) before attending the University of Southern California. She rose to worldwide prominence as Spencer Hastings in the hit TV series, Pretty Little Liars.


Associated Tropes:

  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: Most of her roles.
  • Awesome Mc Coolname
  • But Not Too Black: Her mother is black, but you'd never guess that from looking at her. And her mother is pretty hard to tell too.
  • Real-Life Relative: She guested on NCIS, a show where her father is the producer (she also made appearances on other Donald P. Bellisario series like Quantum Leap and JAG). Also in the show, she played the sister of the character being played by her real life step-brother.
    • She also appeared on Suits as an ex of Mike's. She married Patrick J. Adams in December 2016.
  • Shout-Out: The main guest character in the Quantum Leap episode "A Portrait For Troian" is named after her (although Troian Bellisario does not actually appear in this episodenote ).
  • Statuesque Stunner: She's 5'8.
