First News Interviews Victoria Justice From Nickelodeon's "VicTORIous"

From First News, the award-winning newspaper for kids:
First News interviews Victoria Justice from VicTORIous

What’s the best thing about playing Tori?

The best thing about playing Tori would have to be being able to perform and sing. Some of the songs that I’ve recorded for the show are just so much fun – I have so much fun dancing and performing to them. Also, her wardrobe; her style is actually very similar to mine. I get to pick out a lot of the clothes that she wears, so she’s kind of influenced by me.

What’s the best thing about being part of VicTORIous?

The show is so much fun to be a part of. The best part would have to be the people that I work with. We have so much fun together and it’s always like a big party on set.

How do you prepare for an average episode of VicTORIous?

We usually get the script over the weekend, or the day of rehearsals, so we rehearse from Monday or Tuesday, where we go through ever scene. Then we do these things called run-throughs, which is kind of like putting on a play of the entire episode in front of all the writers and some people from Nickelodeon, and then on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday we usually film. It’s a lot of work and sometimes we film for very long hours, but you know, I’m doing what I love and it never really feels like a job!

In one of the upcoming episodes you got to work with Ke$ha – what was that like?

Working with Ke$ha was great! I didn’t really know what to expect at first, but she has a really cool personality. She’s very down to earth and very real. She is who she is and doesn’t really care what anybody else thinks and I think that’s kind of awesome.

Do you know of any other celebrity fans of VicTORIous that might surprise us?

I heard that Stephen Tyler from American Idol is a fan, which is really cool! Dave Grohl from the Foo Fighters as well; his kids are big fans. He came up to me at the MTV Video Music Awards and said: “We have to get a picture together!”

The show recently merged with iCarly for a one-off special, iParty - what was that like to film?

Filming that was such a good time! I love the iCarly cast; they’re all such nice, funny people, so it was really cool to hang out with them for two weeks. There were lots of laughs!

What other Nickelodeon show would you love VicTORIous to merge with for a one-off special? SpongBob Squarepants?

That’s such a good question! And I think SpongeBob is a really good answer! To see myself in cartoon form would be crazy. That would be really cool – I’m so up for it.

A lot of kids out there would love to be in your shoes – any advice for breaking into the industry?

I think for a lot of kids the idea of being famous and being on TV is very glamorous, but that’s not really what it’s like; there’s a lot of hard work that goes in to a show like VicTORIous. There are actually a lot of things that you have to sacrifice, but at the end of the day, for me, it’s worth it. Just remember that practice… makes permanent!
