At Tori Vega’s new school, she’s about to see herself in a whole new light… a spotlight! Can she grab a starring role in her new life?
Ariana Grande is best known as Cat Valentine, a cutie-pie sidekick on Victorious who spends most of her time with her head in the clouds. But in real life, Ariana is no soft-spoken sweetie. She's a bright Broadway star! Ariana was belting her best alongside Liz Gillies in the Broadway musical 13 (that's how they became besties!). Now, she's a rambunctious red-headed performer, with knack for acting and a passion for singing. And her perfect pipes shine far beyond her music. She also plays the voice of Princess Diaspro on Winx Club!
Avan Jogia is one of the most handsome heartthrobs in Hollywood. That's why he was the perfect pick for the role of beautiful Beck Oliver in Victorious. But before Avan was making Jade jealous by talking to Tori, he was just a pint-sized Potter practicing for his first big gig in a school play. Avan first discovered acting when he scored the lead in his school's rendition of Harry Potter at age ten. Since then, he's been cast in hit Nickelodeon TV movies like Gym Teacher: The Movie and Spectacular!. And now he plays one of the most talented guys on tube that can make any girl go gaga. And his acting Avan-tures have only just begun!
Daniella Monet is no red carpet rookie. Before finally settling in as Trina Vega on Victorious, Daniella was a queen of cameos, making guest appearances on tons of hit TV shows, including Zoey 101. She also starred in big screen Hollywood hits like Nancy Drew and Taking 5. But this vivacious vet isn't ready to retire anytime soon. She's gearing up for another glowing role as Tootsie in the upcoming movie, A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow Up, Timmy Turner!. Hooray for Monet! She's no acting amateur. She's a lovable leading lady!
Leon Thomas knows wassup. The NYC-native is total vet when it comes to makin' it shine in the spotlight. Before he hit it big as Andre on Victorious, he was the "mane" attraction on Broadway, playing the part of Simba in The Lion King! And if he wasn't busy belting out "Hakuna Matata", he wasn't just "lion" around! He was making guest appearances on iCarly and Naked Brother's Band. And all that hard work really paid off!
Liz Gillies may play a frenemy to Tori Vega on Victorious, but in real life she's just a good-natured gal who's got a serious love for performing! Before she scored her role as the jealous Jade West, she was belting out tunes as a Broadway beauty! She was discovered while starring in the Broadway musical 13 with fellow co-star Ariana Grande. These girls are real life besties! And when she's not tormenting Tori on the Victorious set, she's serenading her fans with her killer vocals. Watch out, there might be another singing starlet rising in the ranks!
Matt Bennett might play a shy teen ventriloquist on Victorious, but in real life he's an energetic entertainer who's got Hollywood on his puppet strings. Before he scored his first major role as the performing puppeteer Robbie Shapiro, he was starring in small films and commercials. He even co-wrote is very own short film. And he's got some major comedy chops too! Even without Rex on his arm, the quick-witted Matt can make anyone laugh (even the dummies).
Get ready to Freak the Freak Out! Not only does Victoria Justice lead her own Nick show, Victorious, but she's also a mega hit recording artist! But before she had us "Beggin'" on our knees, we started loving her as Lola on Zoey 101. She also made cameos in True Jackson, The Troop, and iCarly. Now that she's making it shine as Tori Vega, her teen queen reign is hitting its high note.
Sixteen-year old Tori Vega has lead a relatively normal life up until now, but after entering a new high school, she's about to see herself in a whole new light... a spotlight! Hollywood Arts is a performing arts school where crazy talented students learn how to become real artists. Until now, Tori didn't think she had much talent of her own. But all that's about to change! She'll have to try to fit in, find new friends AND pass Sikowitz' silly assignments if she wants to make it to the big time. From spending time with her spacey BFF Cat Valentine, to dealing with her frenemy Jade West, can Tori grab a starring role in her new life?
