Are you ready to be mega-impressed by Troian Bellisario’s strength, flexibility, and gracefulness? Look no further than this video, courtesy of Seventeen, of the Pretty Little Liarsactress performing aerial stunts on silks. You will never be able to look at Troian the same way again.
We knew that Troian was an aerial silks goddess, but it’s one thing to see pictures of her posed in the air, it’s something else entirely to see the actress performing aerobatics using only two long sheets of fabric hanging from the ceiling. In the minute-long video, Troian climbs, wraps, and drops her way through the air with the stamina of an athlete and sensuousness of an artist. Color us impressed.
Troian is a woman of many talents. In addition to her abilities as an aerial silks artist, she can sing in French, write/star in beautiful re-imaginings of classic Shakespearian tragedies, and take gorgeous photographs of her co-stars. And that’s not even taking into account the way she goes above and beyond to inhabit the character of Spencer Hastings on Pretty Little Liars. We’re really looking forward to her turn in next week’s Season 4, Episode 19 (“Shadow Play”). We think the noir-inspired, predominantly black-and-white installment will give Troian another chance to shine, as it takes place largely from her point-of-view. Not like the PLLer needs to do anything more to impress us.
What do you think of Troian’s aerial silks skills? Did you know she could do that? Sound off in the comments below!
