The brunette actress is taking on a much darker role, playing a sexually abused soldier named Lauren in the WIGS webseries, Lauren. In this photo from the second season of the series, Troian is wearing a military uniform and standing with co-star Raymond Cruz. We're proud of our girl!
As for how Troian was able to prepare for the role? She said, "You know, my father was in the military and one of the first things I said was was that I need somebody who is military trained, who can teach me how to walk and salute like a soldier and who will not placate me, or be like, "that was really good for an actor!"
