Guilty as charged: We love Pretty Little Liars!
And now one of our favorite characters, Spencer Hastings, is facing the music herself as the prime suspect in her best friend’s murder. With the hit teen thriller racing toward its first-season finale, we grilled Troian Bellisario about her character’s legal troubles, Spencer’s new romance with the former murder suspect—and the actress’ hopes to play Katniss in The Hunger Games movie…
In Monday night’s episode, the police discover that Spencer had a relationship with her sister’s boyfriend, Ian, and “now feel like they have a reason to suspect Spencer because she had a motive to get rid of Allison: she was jealous,” Troian reveals. “They barge into her house to search her room and turn Spencer’s world upside down.”
Even if her family and friends believe she is innocent, Troian adds, “Spencer is so dedicated and fascinated with who killed Allison, a lot of people start to look at her and say, ‘Does this girl need help? Is she making stuff up?’—which is totally maddening for Spencer because she is just finally working things out.”
With a little help from her new boyfriend Toby (Keegan Allen), who was originally charged with killing Allison. “The great thing about Toby and Spencer,” said Troian, “is that [their romance] truly came out of nowhere— our characters are so different. Keegan is one of my favorite people on set and we are just really good friends—maybe it was just seeing us hanging out on set that [the writers] started to write our characters closer.”
Whatever the reason, we love the unlikely couple and their romantic sleuthing into our top suspects for Allison’s murderer: Spencer’s brother-in-law Ian (Ryan Merriman) and Toby’s sister Jenna.
So is Jenna (Tammin Sursok) really as evil as she seems? “The crazy thing about Jenna is that she is totally evil and she has a perfectly legitimate reason to be,” Troian said. Good point: Jenna’s sporting those shady shades because Allison & Co. accidentally blinded her. “The girls believe Jenna is really dangerous—they don’t know what she’s capable of—and yet they feel awful for her and they can never fully apologize as much as they want to.”
