Pretty Little Liarsactress Troian Bellisario (Spencer Hastings) sure is wise. Her self-confidence, articulation, and thoughtfulness seem to coalesce into a young actress who is wise beyond her 28 years. What inspirational advice did Troian recently share at this month’s “Keep A Secret” Fan Convention in Paris?

As you may have heard, many of the Liars ventured across the Atlantic earlier this month to attend a fan convention in Paris. Troian was one lucky Liar who made the trip, and we think the French fans are the wiser for it! Check out how Troian responded to one fans question about how to get through the hard times in life...

“I truly believe that everything happens for a reason. So you asked, ‘When things get really, really difficult in your life, what keeps you going?’ For me, it’s always that the most difficult moments in my life, the moments in which I believe I’ve completely failed or hit bottom, I can actually directly link them to something later that is either a true success or a dream come true. So, I do believe that if you can maintain that everything happens for a reason, you can find the strength and the lesson in those difficult moments and grow stronger.”

Wow, Troian really does impress us with her maturity, intensity, and introspection sometimes. She’s one determined young artist, and we can’t wait to see how she inspires her fans next!
