Want insight into the differing acting practices of Troian Bellisario (Spencer Hastings) and Keegan Allen (Toby Cavanaugh)? Well, check out this behind-the-scenes pic from the filming of the diner scene in the Season 3 finale. You may recall this as the climactic scene in which Toby finds out Spencer has joined the “A” Team and Spence sees Toby for the first time since she suspected him dead.

Troian and Keegan’s preparations for this important moment seem pretty different...

In the snapshot, Keegan looks like someone just kicked his puppy. He is staring humorlessly across the booth at a black-hoodied Troian. Troian, on the other hand, is grinning pleasantly back at Keegan as if thinking about the piece of pecan pie she just ordered. The entire thing is hilarious. PLL showrunner Marlene King captions the pic: “Remembering when we shot the ‘Spencer is A reveal to Toby.’ Keegan was so serious as we were about to roll the camera. Troian was happy to be in the hoody.”

It’s hard to reconcile this pic with the finished product. Keegan and Troian really knocked our socks off with their performances in this episode, conveying the hurt, confusion, and love their characters are both feeling. We guess method doesn’t matter when the finished product rocks.

We’re anticipating many more heavy Spoby scenes in Season 4, so we’re glad to hear Keegan does, in fact, have fun on set. In fact, he said Troian often brings him to tears of laughter. These two are just great.

Does this pic make you laugh as much as we do? And were you as impressed with Troian and Keegan’s performances as us? Let us know in the comments below!
