The 16-year-old shared about the show, “It’s basically about this girl, Tori, who gets thrown into this crazy world of performing arts high school called Hollywood Arts and there, she finds out about her new talents — singing, dancing and acting — and she gets to meet all these crazy kids who go to the school. It’s about expressing yourself and not being afraid of who you are.”
When asked about the striking similarities between her and starlet Nina Dobrev came up, Vic shared, “I know what you’re going to say — I look like Nina Dobrev. I get that all the time. There’s a poster up here for Vampire Diaries and people come up to me and say, ‘Congrats on the poster, Victoria.’ I’m like, ‘What? That’s not me!’ I think you’re beautiful Nina, so it’s a compliment to me. It was funny because she actually came up to me at the Scream Awards and she said that people always tell her that she looks like me too. We bonded over that.”
Victorious premieres on Nickelodeon in early 2010.
