Deborah Pratt’s daughter Troian-Pratt Bellisario in “Pretty Little Liars” (Ethnicity)


The Vision Quest Book One: The Age of Light (Vision Quest Book 1) (Bk. 1) Deborah Pratt's sf novel

This post adds to my other posts about beautiful biracial women (see Cheyenne Woods). Deborah Pratt  see link below is older sister to Angela Pratt.  I went to high school with Angie Pratt (Deborah is about 10 years older).  I used to watch her on TV and I knew that was her sister because of the family resemblance and the name. But Angie never talked about her to me.

At the time Angie and her other sister were there. She was a junior and we were maybe freshmen. I can’t remember her other sister’s name but she was also very pretty. Because Deborah was older we never met her. She may have gone to Mercy not sure.  The school is no more anyway.

In the BC interview (see link below) it is clear that Deborah introduced racial themes in her film work and writing whenever she could. And now she is onto universal or spiritual themes, just like myself. Something in the water in Chicago. Because while I am not into sf my life and book read like sf LOL.

I recall them well: 4 or 5 girls and one boy.  They were all fair skinned ( but one was brown skin actually) with silky hair and pretty features.  Since we were both attractive girls we were basically outcasts among other girls in high school.  So we became pretty good friends.  But I did something to sabotage (I was crazy in high school due to bad karma so forgive my youth)  it and I think she moved to California anyway.  Angela went to Oberlin College in Ohio but not sure if she got degree there.

I have no idea what she is doing now as we lost touch because of some crazy boyfriend drama.  My next door neighbor was madly in love with her.  But she went to California for the summer. And she wrote me a letter which I shared with him. Should not have done that. But she was seeing other people.  He and I dated but really I did not like him. I think I was already involved with Kahil El Zabar at the time. Yes, I was kinda fast, no kidding, and I had my pick of the guys.  

Deborah and Angii also had one brother maybe named Phillip like my brother. He was not as fair as they but did not look black.

Interview with Troian: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dyGsfdV0dn0

Here’s what I wrote at answer: I went to high school with Angela Pratt who is Deborah Pratt‘s sister. Their dad was a dark skinned man like my father. Her dad looked south Indian. Her mom was very fair, looked like a Creole woman again just like my mom. We attended a Catholic high school with mostly Irish/Polish Catholic girls. For a while Angie and I were best friends. They are not white and never passed for white. In my book they are black women who can pass for white but are not.

Donald Bellisario (Serbian mom and Italian father)

Bellisario received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2004, which he showed off on an episode of JAG.[citation needed]

In an interview with Sci-Fi Channel in the late 1990s, Bellisario said he was inspired to create Quantum Leap in 1988 after reading a novel about time travel.[citation needed] His service alongside John F. Kennedy‘s assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, was the basis for a two-hour (two-part in reruns) episode of Quantum Leap, “Lee Harvey Oswald” (the fifth season premiere, originally aired 22 September 1992). The episode supports the theory that Oswald carried out the assassination on his own, something Bellisario believed he was capable of after serving with him. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donald_Bellisario

Finally, in this country unless you are Anglo Saxon meaning part British and/or part German then you are not considered white, but ethnic. So Troian being part black, Italian, Serbian and maybe West Indian and Anglo (which I think Deborah’s dad was) she is ethnic white since her dad is. But if you based it on the mother’s race then she would be black.

I am sure that Deborah considers herself black just as I do. From comments I read however, others don’t consider her black because she can pass for white or was passed as white in films or on TV just like Jennifer Beals (who also grew up in Chicago but I did not meet her) who is biracial.  Per my other posts I have family members who look ethnic white but you know are black as far as this county is concerned.

But maybe the next racial reality will be this: if you look white (even ethnic) then you’re white. When I lived in Chicago and wore my hair straight and had no tan I was often mistaken for white. Down here though I am pretty brown due to the sun. I think someday it will come out about Chicago and how the most evolved black folks in the world ended up there. We were all some other race in past lives and we have come into this race to speed up its evolution and obviously that of the rest of the races as well.  Oops HPB rambling again.

  1. I actually went to high school with Deborah Pratt. As a teenager I spent many nights at her house. There is no sister named Angela, and no brother. Her family and parents are not as you describe as you them. She did not go to Mercy.

    • So you are from Chicago? Angela would visit her sister in LA during the summer months when she first went there for a call to get more minorities in films.

  2. I have known Deborah since kindergarten. Our parents were dear friends. She had no brothers, but she does have three sisters. None of them have the name, Angela. No, she did not attend Mercy High School, but I did.

  3. I am Deborah Pratt and Troian is my daughter. I have thee sisters Diane,Donna, Deirdre. No Angela. We grew up in Chicago Ill.
    My father was born inMobile, Alabama was very fair with blonde hair and hazel blue eyes. His birth certificate says Creole. I am of mixed persons and consider myself a child of planet Earth carrying all the 3 human blood lines; white, black and Native American
    Please update
    Thanks for your support and hope I get to meet you.

    • @Mrs. Pratt- I really loved what you said about being a “child of planet Earth”! We get so distracted as humans trying to put one another in a class, race or group that we also hurt ourselves by missing out on the accomplishments and traditions of others. Thank you for your contributions to film and literature. I Googled your name after seeing you in several episodes of “Airwolf”, a show I watched as a child and am now enjoying as an adult thanks to Netflix! Lol But now I have learned about you and “Vision Quest” and plan on picking up a copy this week after all the great reviews I have read about online. Thanks again!
