QUESTION: You're are such a bomb actress! Which scene are you most proud of?
TROIAN: Thank you! You're a bomb questioner. The scene that I'm most proud of, I think is coming up--but I haven't seen it yet, so I don't know. But I hope it's as bomb as I think it is. And I hope you enjoy it when you see it.
QUESTION: What is your favorite song?
TROIAN: I couldn't possibly pick one. Too many good ones for too many different occasions.
QUESTION: We have read that Ashley Benson plays a lot of pranks on everyone on the set...have you ever pranked her or any other cast or crew member? Or have you been pranked?
TROIAN: Too quick to be pranked. I like laying in wait and scaring people. It's cheap but effective and continues to work. So watch your back!
QUESTION: You are writing, directing, acting, making music... You are a truly multi-talented person. Such an inspiration! Tell us which one gives you the most creative satisfaction??
TROIAN: Great question. I do have to put to rest the rumor that I have directed: I have not directed yet. While acting is my first passion, writing has allowed me to create certain roles that are beyond what I have ever dreamed of as an artist. So the two work together to be the most satisfying.
QUESTION: In your own words, what do you think was special about Spencer and Ali's relationship? There is always such an intensity to your flashback scenes with her!
TROIAN: I think Spencer and Ali were very, very much alike. They both came from very difficult families and both desired power so that they wouldn't feel weak. I think there is still a lot to find out about these two girls and the relationship they had.
QUESTION: Did you originally audition for the role of Spencer?
TROIAN: I did. I only auditioned for the role of Spencer. My motto remains: once a Spencer, always a Spencer.
QUESTION: Do you play any instruments? If so, which ones and how often do you play them?
TROIAN: I've tried to teach myself guitar and the bass. And unfortunately, I always get too busy to follow through. I need more time and discipline, but I would like to consider myself one day to be a musical person.
QUESTION: Can you tell us more about the project you’re working on with Shay right now? Congratulations!
TROIAN: Two people we worked with on Pretty Little Liars are aspiring directors. Shay and I wanted to help them make another film, so we all banded together and started a Kickstarter. And thanks to you guys, we reached our goal. We wrapped shooting last week, and I had a lot of fun. And I'm looking forward to sharing "Immediately Afterlife" with you.
QUESTION: I’ve read that you’re a big reader. Which author are you reading right now?
TROIAN: I've been trying to finish Edward Abbey's "The Monkey Wrench Gang," but my boyfriend keeps stealing it from me.
QUESTION: What would be your ultimate wish for Spencer? What do you want most for her?
TROIAN: To have a life free of "A."
LAST QUESTION: Thank you so much for doing this, Troian. Getting a question answered by you has been the highlight of 2013 so far!! Can we expect any surprises in tonight's episode? It's almost PLL time!
TROIAN: You can expect A LOT of surprises, mainly what happens when Mona and Spencer finally go toe to toe.
