Pretty Little Liars & Ravenswood - Troian Bellisario Interview

ETonline: What was your reaction to finding out season two would play with time?
Troian Bellisario:
I was really quite overwhelmed. When I first got the script, it was like 85 pages long, and I was shocked because I was ready to make a few more 5 minute episodes and I got this feature-length script! Then Jon Avnet [producer/director] added in combat scenes, so I was like, "What is happening right now?!?!" I was so thrilled to see that it explores Lauren's home life and you get to see her relationship with her rapist. That to me was one of the most interesting things because so rarely is rape committed by a stranger. It's usually someone the woman knows and has trusted at some point in her life, which makes the violation so much worse. So, for me, when I saw we would explore that and see both Lauren's side of things and his side of things, I was excited.

ETonline: Episode three shows, for the first time, Lauren's actions immediately after her rape. Why was it important to bring that to life?
You know, it's interesting. I didn't immediately understand why we were showing that scene, so I asked the writer and director why because we'd already put the audience, and Lauren, through the rape. But Jon explained that the most horrific violation of someone who has been assaulted is, after they've summoned the courage it takes to come forward, what they then must go through can almost be a worse violation. You're asked questions you're not ready to be asked, you're poked, you're prodded, you're undressed again and the raw emotional moment of being brave enough to come forward that soon after your assault was something we all came to see as a hugely important part of Lauren's story.
ETonline: You say that some PLL characters will find out they're from Ravenswood -- how interconnected will the two shows be?
I don't know exactly how it's going to happen, but I know Toby and Spencer are going to Ravenswood in the episode we’re filming next week! I'm excited to see what that's going to turn out because it's already pretty crazy in the script.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
