Victoria Justice is an actress and singer born February 19, 1993. I first saw her on a show called “Zoey 101” on Nickelodeon a comedy television series created by Dan Schneider (Kenan & Kel, The Amanda Show, What I Like About You, Drake & Josh, iCarly, Victorious, Sam & Cat, Henry Danger). Zoey 101 starred Britney Spears’ sister Jamie Lynn Spears. She appeared for 47 episodes seasons 2-4 as Lola Martinez.
Victoria was born in the Miami suburb of Hollywood, Florida to Serene Reed and Zack Justice. Her mother was from the Bronx but has Puerto Rico ancestry. Her younger half-sister, Madison Grace Reed, is an actress and model. In 2003 she and her family moved to Hollywood, California. Victoria purchased a home in Encino Hills in 2013 for her and her parents.
At 10 years old she appeared in an episode of “The Gilmore Girls” and the Disney Channel’s “The Suite Life of Zack & Cody”. She was accepted to the Millikan Performing Arts Academy in Los Angeles and appeared in commercials such as Ralph Lauren, Gap, Guess, Mervyn’s, Peanut Butter Toast Crunch, and Ovaltine. This same year, 2005, she landed the role on “Zoey 101” which kept her busy until its end, May 2, 2008. She appeared as herself in a 2009 episode of “The Naked Brothers Band” and then starred in the Nickelodeon musical Spectacular! where she performed her first three songs.
I was on Zoey 101. When I was 12, Dan Schneider cast me as a new character, Lola Martinez. From there, I worked with him for three years, on three seasons of Zoey 101. And, after that, Dan found out that I could also sing and dance as well as act, so he thought it would be really cool to create a show for me on Nickelodeon, called VictoriousVictoria Justice
Victorious debut episode aired on March 27, 2010, and was a huge success (It was my all-time favorite episode). Victoria recorded several songs for the series and had some great help from Ariana Grande and Elizabeth Gillies.
Her sister was played by Daniella Monet and her other classmates at Hollywood Arts High School, a performing arts school, were Leon Thomas III, Matt Bennett, and Avan Jogia. The hilarious teacher was Mr. Sikowitz, played by Eric Lange.
Victorious is a hilarious show with lots of great music. The idea of making it a performing arts school was based on the fact that Victoria had been attending an actual performing arts middle school. There were 57 episodes over 4 seasons ending February 2, 2013.
Victoria starred in the 2010 Nickelodeon television movie “The Boy Who Cried Werewolf”, playing Jordan Sands, a girl who is transformed into a werewolf following her move to a creepy manor. Justice played the lead role of Wren in the comedy “Fun Size”, released on October 26, 2012. On October 11, 2013, it was announced that Justice had been cast as Lindy Sampson in MTV’s “Eye Candy”, a cyber-thriller based on the novel by R. L. Stine. In 2013, it was announced that Justice had been cast in” Naomi and Ely’s No Kiss List”.
On October 20, 2016, Justice played Janet Weiss, one of the lead roles in “The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let’s Do the Time Warp Again.” Victoria was excellent and so was this TV special. She also played Jodie in “The Outcasts” an April 14, 2017 film.
