“Allison has a mini-breakdown where she says, “I’m always terrified,” or something like that. (…) I remember that there was something going on in my personal life, at that moment, so it was nice to have that be my release. That might be too much information. It was cathartic. Acting is really therapeutic for me, personally. That’s something that I’ll always remember. I don’t know how it’s going to look, but I gave it my heart and soul.”
Cosmopolitan: We quoted your BF Patrick Adams saying that he auditioned for a guest role on Pretty Little Liars because he was trying to win you back.
Troian: [laughs] Yeah, it was pretty awesome. He was so sneaky! We met doing theater before that, and then I went away to shoot Pretty Little Liars and I started to feel like he wasn’t giving me everything I felt like he could be. So I was like, I’m going to bounce. And then the next day he said, ‘I just want to let you know, I have an audition for your show.’ Once he got the role, the moment I saw him, I was just like, ‘This is stupid face! Fine!’
And we’ve been together ever since.
