Victoria Justice posed with a fan on the set of Victorious on Sunday (April 15).
In a recent interview with the Times Free Press – Victoria opened up about her role on TV as well as her music.
On working on her first solo album and being in her first feature film: “I’m being given incredible opportunities, but at the same time, I think it’s because I’ve been working so hard for so many years. [Laughs.] I think a lot of people see what I do … and it all looks so fun and glamorous and easy; but in reality, I work super hard. For example, last year, from Jan. 1 to Dec. 21, I only had six days off. It takes a lot of focus, and I have to sacrifice a lot, but at the end of the day, it’s worth it to me. My parents used to say that “Luck is when preparation meets opportunity.” I feel like I’ve been preparing for this for a while now.”
On relating to her Victorious character now that’s she older: “I think as I grow and get older, I’ll start playing older roles. I don’t think I’ll be playing high school forever. [Laughs.] Being an actress, that’s the coolest part, to be able to really explore that world of new characters and show people your range and what you’re able to do. I’m looking forward to that.”
On how she feels when she leaves Tori Vega behind: ” I love playing Tori Vega, and I love “Victorious.” It’s really a dream job for me right now. It’s incredible. Although it will be extremely sad [when it ends], I’ll always look back fondly on these times.”
On being a good role model: There is definitely an obligation for me to set a good example, especially right now with being on Nickelodeon. I think it’s important. I am in the public eye a lot now, and the things I say and do are setting examples, and I’ll try to be the best role model that I can be. Everyone makes mistakes, at the end of the day, but I’m staying true to myself. That’s all you can do.”
