Pretty Little Liars star Troian Bellisario talks about learning field hockey for her role as Spencer:
“What’s the most exciting part about being an actress?”
Troian Bellisario (Spencer Hastings) : Getting to do things that I wouldn’t normally get to do. Just for Spencer, I had to learn field hockey. I’d never played field hockey in my life, because I’m from the West Coast and we don’t really have it out here. But I love learning new things. I hadn’t played tennis since I was a little kid and they were like, “We have you playing tennis, so let’s go get you some tennis lessons again!” and it’s so nice to have all of these opportunities to be somebody else every day. That’s why I do it.
