A case of senioritis has seriously spread through that cast of Pretty Little Liars since filming wrapped for good in October. How do we know? Troian Bellisario has pink hair. The actress joined fellow PLL alum Ashley Benson in adopting the unicorn inspired trend.
Troian’s 2016 has not looked too shabby — she married Suits actor Patrick J. Adams in an insanely gorgeous wedding ceremony at which she rocked a corseted white dress and then a different slinky gold sequin gown for the after party. She filmed the delightfully odd-looking action/adventure/comedy Chuck Hank and the San Diego Twins.
After seven years of shooting Pretty Little Liars, Bellisario said goodbye to Spencer by changing what she could of her appearance to drastically leave the famously tormented friend. The verdict? Spencer would never have gone pink. That’s A fact.
Spencer? Is that you?
The switch to pink could have been a move of self-love, as the actress recently spoke to The Cut about self-care and the importance of finding time for yourself. “Shooting a television show for nine months out of the year, seven years in a row, takes a lot out of you. It’s a pretty big requirement on your life, especially the energy requirement,” she told The Cut. Troian has been known to use her platform to speak out about common issues that matter to her — such as the PSA she released about disordered eating and mental illness. “I was doing an interview with Seventeen a few years ago, and they asked me what my life was like when I was 17, and I thought very clearly to myself, Well, I can either lie about this or I could tell people the truth,” Bellisario explained, citing her own battle with anorexia nervosa.
Needless to say, the woman is enjoying her very, very well deserved break. We wish Troian the happiest New Year, lots of sleeping in with her new husband, frequent reunions with her PLL girls and oh yeah, some time off to appreciate that gorgeous head of rosy pink hair. Some people are just living their best lives.
