Troian Bellisario is paying to tribute to “Pretty Little Liars” on Tuesday, hours before the show’s series finale. On Instagram, the actress posted a lengthy message in honor of her colleagues and the “PLL” fans.

For seven seasons and 160 episodes, Bellisario has played Spencer Hastings. Viewers have watched the incredibly smart teen tormented by “A” turn into an incredibly smart young woman… tormented by “A.” While the star gave no hints as to how Spencer’s story wraps up, her tribute reflects on the very real journey she and her character have gone on together for most of the last decade.

“Today closes the chapter on a very significant part of my life. A chapter I had never imagined or even dreamt of having written. When I left collage [sic] I thought I was headed to NYC (hopefully for some jobs on stage). Little did I know life was actually taking me to Rosewood, Pennsylvania. Where they insisted I would need to do high school for about 6 more years. Life (for reasons that will continue to reveal themselves to me ) made me a Pretty Little Liar. For 8 years. For around 10,000 hours of my life it asked me to be Spencer Hastings. It took me to days where I couldn’t stop laughing, and nights when I wished I could have been sleeping in bed, instead of running in the wet and cold for the umpteenth take at 5AM but somehow we made it through and we had fun even then,” she wrote.

Bellisario continued, “Every moment with this cast and crew, in this town, every breath I took with Spencer, every text, dead body, new suspect, terrifying scream, new relationship and ‘kisses, A’ taught me something extraordinary. It taught me patience, and how to approach my craft, how to direct, produce, it taught me about collaboration, experimentation, risk, friendship, family, empathy, sacrifice and above all LOVE.”

“Being Spencer Hastings in this crazy world is something I still don’t quite understand,” the star admitted, “but I know it was a rare and beautiful gift. A gift that will continue to give for the rest of my days on this Earth. And I wanted to say THANK YOU to all of the people who gave it to me. To all of the people who believed in me and made it possible, to my friends and family who loved me through it and above all to YOU, the fans, who watched, who tweeted, and posted, who theorized, swooned and screamed. We got a lot out of this experience, but I would have been nothing without you.”

Bellisario concluded, “Thank you and I love you all very much. (I love you too, Spencer, you weirdo). Enjoy tonight. I know I will. #pllendgame #spencerhastings.” Bellisario’s tribute was accompanied by behind-the-scenes photos, including the one pictured above.
