Much like her Pretty Little Liars character Spencer Hastings, actress Troian Bellisario strived for perfection from a young age. That quest led the TV star down a dangerous, self-destructive path. In the February 2014 issue of Seventeen , L.A.-born Bellisario opens up about her stressful upbringing. “I was the youngest daughter, the perfect little girl. My school was a very intense college prep school. So it was about wanting to please my father and mother and wanting to be perfect to everybody. I just thought if I ever expressed to [my parents] any sadness or anger or anything that’s going on with me, they would disown me. I kept a lot of it bottled up inside, and it turned into self-destructive behavior.”
