Victoria Justice Interview

By: Sindy

Victoria Justice is best-known for her role on the Nickelodeon show, Zoey 101. But what else has this talented rising star been up to these days? Find out what she had to say when she sat down to talk with Sindy!

Sindy: You've just finished filming your first feature film - how was the movie process different from working on a TV show?

Victoria Justice: For me the process really wasn't any different, just the script. They tell you the night before what scenes you will be working on the next day. You study your lines and then work on what choices you will make on how to act in that scene. There are rehearsals and discussions of the scene just like on a TV show. Unknown was an independent film that had a deadline to be finished by, so it moved very fast, just like a TV show would.

Sindy: Was it a challenge to play a role in a thriller? If so, how?

Victoria Justice: It absolutely was, because Zoey 101 is a sitcom on Nickelodeon for kids, and it's also a comedy. Unknown is a psychological thriller that has some really dramatic and intense scenes. They couldn't be more different.

Sindy: What has been your favorite project to work on to date?

Victoria Justice: I have worked on a few projects, and I have to say that there was something I loved about all of them. If I had to choose though, it would be between Zoey and Unknown. I feel really lucky to have worked on both. I love comedy, and I love the challenge of a really intense dramatic role. Zoey is like going home though, because some of my closest friends are on that show. I know the crew really well, all my castmates are awesome and we have so much fun together. I'll be really sad when it's over, there are so many people I will miss... but don't worry, we're not going anywhere anytime soon.

Sindy: Who has been the coolest actor you've worked with so far?

Victoria Justice: I love my castmates, but I would have to say Jim Caviezel (who played my dad in Unknown). I was kind of intimidated at first, (I mean after all, he played Jesus in "Passion of the Christ"), but he was so much fun that I had a great time. I was so impressed that after we were joking around, he could very quickly just start crying and become so serious in scene. I don't want to give anything away, but right after that scene, I felt that I had been in the presence of one of our greatest actors. He was amazing!

Sindy: Who would you like to work with that you haven't had a chance to yet?

Victoria Justice: There are too many to name but let's just say for starters Meryl Streep, Hilary Swank, Johnny Depp and Mark Ruffalo. If I was thinking comedy I would have to say Steve Carell or any one of the actors from Will and Grace. They're all so extremely talented.

Sindy: What has been your favorite episode of Zoey 101 to work on? Why?

Victoria Justice: It would have to be the premiere episode of the second season when they introduce my character. I first get to play a sort of goth girl who has a real dark side, but as the show goes on, you find out I'm really an actress who is just having fun in an acting experiment. It was a blast! I loved my wardrobe and I loved the way they introduced my character. The best part of that episode was when I had to improvise this voodoo chant. It was so funny because I was making all these weird sounds and none of us could keep a straight face!

    “Instruction in world history in the so-called high schools is even today in a very sorry condition. Few teachers understand that the study of history can never be to learn historical dates and events by heart and recite them by rote; that what matters is not whether the child knows exactly when this battle or that was fought, when a general was born, or even when a monarch (usually a very insignificant one) came into the crown of his forefathers. No, by the living God, this is very unimportant. To 'learn' history means to seek and find the forces which are the causes leading to those effects which we subsequently perceive as historical events.”
