Pretty Little Liars alumn Troian Bellisario has officially booked her next post-PLL gig!
Variety reports that Troian Bellisario has officially joined the cast of Boyhood director Richard Linklater’s Where’d You Go, Bernadette.
The upcoming dramatic comedy is based off of Maria Semple’s novel of the same name and follows a woman named Bernadette Fox (played by Cate Blanchett) who is described as “an architect-turned-recluse.” The plot thickens when Bernadette ends up going missing just before she’s set to take a family vacation.
Bellisario is set to play a woman named Becky in the film. Though there’s no telling how big or small Bellisario’s role will be, we do know that Becky is the first person Bernadette runs into when she begins her track through Antartica.
Where’d You Go, Bernadette boasts a pretty star-studded cast. Blanchett aside, Bellisario also joins previously announced cast members Kristen Wiig and Billy Crudup.
The actress took to Twitter to express her excitement over joining the cast on Thursday (July 13).
“So excited! Feels like a dream to be a part of such incredible company on this beautiful film!” tweeted Bellisario.

Bellisario just wrapped a seven year stint playing brainiac Spencer Hastings on the hit Freeform drama, Pretty Little Liars. As sad as we were to say goodbye to one of our favorite guilty pleasure dramas, we’re happy to hear that we’ll be seeing Bellisario branch out in a variety of projects.
Acting aside, Bellisario has also spent quite a bit of time behind the camera. Apart from directing episode 5 of Pretty Little Liars’ final season, the young actress is gearing up to release an indie feature called Feed.
Feed, which will find Bellisario starring opposite Ben Winchell and Harry Potter alumn, Tom Felton, was also written and produced by Bellisario herself.
Unlike Where’d You Go, Bernadette, fans won’t have to wait long to catch Bellsario in the upcoming indie. Feed is set to be released by Sony Pictures on VOD and digital platforms on July 18.
We can’t wait to catch Troian Bellsario in both of her upcoming projects!
Where’d You Go, Bernadette is set to hit theaters sometime in 2018.
