Feed is now available for pre-order on the iTunes store!

Click here (or scroll to bottom for typed link) to pre-order Troian’s new feature film Feed, which will be available on July 18. Troian not only stars in it, but she is also the screenwriter and a producer of the film, which is a version of her own experiences with an eating disorder.

Feed tells the story of Olivia (Troian Bellisario) and Matthew Grey (Tom Felton), 18 year-old twins born into a world of privilege and high expectations. As the twins prepare for their last school year together, an unexpected tragedy splits them apart, leaving the surviving one to learn how to live without their other half – or test how far they are willing to go to bring them back.

“I thought, ‘If I can tell a story that puts the audience in a position to make a similar choice to the one that I made in my young life, maybe I could get them to empathize.'”

On April 15, 2016, S-Life Magazine released an online version of an interview with Troian, “A Conversation With Troian Bellisario”.

Throughout the interview, Troian discussed everything from relationships (including her own with fiancé Patrick J. Adams),

“It’s the comfort in the uncomfortable. We love our own dramas. We love all of the negative things, because we’re used to it. It’s addictive. It’s scary to suddenly stand up and say, ‘I would like to change this situation, possibly for the better.’”

to food and even how she feels about where she is in her life right now.

“I don’t know if it was just me trying to be rebellious against my parents – because both my parents were in television – but I don’t think that I ever expected this. I grew up never watching television, mostly because what you chose to watch was kind of a political act in my family. If it’s not dad or mom’s show, it says a lot, you know? So I just didn’t want to watch TV. I became obsessed with film and theater, because I could watch these films over and over again. It seemed, to me, like such a different type of creation where you were creating this one thing that was going to stand the test of time, or not. I loved movies and plays because they were constantly regenerating or having a new opinion of something — a new version. You could do Shakespeare 10,000 different ways. I could watch The Godfather 10,000 times and still find something new in it. And because I was drawn more to film and theater, I never imagined myself being in television, especially not in the same role for seven years.”

Shakespearean plays have been reimagined and retold to reflect the most important social issues of the time for centuries. Troian Bellisario’s upcoming short film, Still A Rose, is following in that tradition. Troian is starring in a modern-day cinematic adaptation of Romeo & Juliet that expands the diversity of the story across two spectrums: race and sexual orientation.

This film is self-described on its Facebook page as such: “Employing Shakespeare and Cinema, two great artistic languages come together to re-introduce a timeless tale of young love and tragedy to a brand new audience. Refocusing literature’s most iconic young lovers, ’Still A Rose’ weaves through couplings of mixed-race and same-gender within the arc of the famous balcony scene (Act II, Scene II) from ‘Romeo and Juliet.’”

The short stars Troian Bellisario as Juliet, and in a wonderfully compelling twist, the film also stars Will Branske as Juliet, with Brandon Crowder and Tinuke Oyefule as the tragically romantic Romeos. The balcony scene is played out in interweaving scenes, with both same-sex and straight pairings. The result is a breathtaking ride through one of literature’s most well known scenes, which somehow feels new again.

Check out the trailer below:

Premiering on Wednesday, June 24th at the Frameline San Francisco LGBTQ International Film Festival as part of the “Bi Candy” shorts program, Still A Rose presents the Romeo and Juliet balcony scene through four different couples, adding gender and sexuality inclusivity to the classic play. In the film, directed by hazart, Pretty Little Liars star Troian Bellisario plays Juliet, but she’s not the only one — nor does she confess her to love one sole Romeo. Instead, Still A Rose shows four different couples as the star-crossed lovers, bringing new diversity to the story that while common in theater, is new to film, and hazart and Bellisario share what opportunities and challenges that re-telling presented.

Troian is set to guest star on her fiancé Patrick J. Adams’ legal drama Suits!

Bellisario is set to take on the role of Claire, a blast from Mike’s (Adams) past when the USA Network hit returns for the second half of its fourth season in early 2015. An idealistic law student and a volunteer at a social services law clinic, Claire and Mike will meet in a flashback to his days as a bike messenger. While they soon begin dating, things will get complicated when Mike tries to help Claire with one of her cases, and the result will ultimately cause him to question the trajectory of his life.

On October 9 2014, ENews! published the news that Troian was set to guest star on Suits (you can find the article here).


Troian will be featured in this month’s Flaunt Magazine, for whom she did a photo shoot and interview.

In high school, you’re going through so many changes. For me personally, I felt like my mental state and my emotional state were threatening to get out and if I let it out everyone would hate me.

I think a lot of kids keep everything inside. It’s because they don’t even know who they are. High school is a place that automatically puts you in the spotlight—What are you? Where do you fit in? Are you this? Are you that? Go there. Be happy.”
