‘Pretty Little Liars’ Star Troian Bellisario Is A University Of Southern Californian Graduate


When you see them on screen, you seldom realize the amount and weight of education they have under their belt. Viewers often judge them based on their performance and their quality as performers or artists. But sometimes, if you dig deep enough, you get to find out that they have a higher education that will carry them through.

Take for example, Troian Bellisario. She is known for her role in the current television show 'Pretty Little Liars.' But what many do not know, is that Troian is actually a graduate from the University of Southern California.

Before Troian Bellisario became famous, she attended the Campbell Hall School in North Hollywood, California. She was a loyal enrollee from kindergarten until twelfth grade. She graduated as the valedictorian of her batch. For her higher education, she attended the University of Southern California. In 2009, according to Seventeen, she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree.

However, she has always been in the acting scene since 1988. She made her acting debut in the 1988 movie, 'Last Rites.' She was only three years old at the time. Her acting career went on during her childhood years. She starred in many television shows that were produced by her own dad. She joined shows like 'JAG', 'NCIS' and 'First Monday.'

However, she also joined in films. She was given the lead role in 'Martyrs'. Troian created her own film, too. In October 2011, she wrote her own film funded by Kickstarter. But it was not until November 2009 where fans knew her for her role in 'Pretty Little Liars.' The series is based on the book written by Sara Shepard. In 2016, she was given the opportunity to direct an episode in 'Pretty Little Liars' season 7 episode 15. She was one of the first in the cast to do so.

What is interesting to note is that she continued her education while she pursued her acting career. Do you think Troian Bellisario should get a masters degree? Shout out in the comments section!
