Victoria is starring in The Boy Who Cried Werewolf, a two-hour original TV movie that airs Saturday, Oct. 23, @ 8 PM [ET/PT] on Nickelodeon. The comedy with a sci-fi twist follows Jordan [Victoria], a unpopular teen who is accidentally transformed into a werewolf during a visit to Wolfsberg, Romania.
Victoria graduated from high school at at age 16 and she went to Millikan Middle School for Performing Arts. Her debut album will come out AFTER the Victorious soundtrack album. She has been writing with people such as Bonnie McKee [Who penned California Gurls & Teenage Dream w/ Katy Perry]. She would love to collaborate with Sara Bareilles, Kings Of Leon & Amy Winehouse.
Do you talk to Miley Cyrus or Selena Gomez? To be honest, not really. I don’t have their phone numbers and haven’t really had the opportunity to get to know them. Whenever we’re at event we will say hi. But when I was younger I went to the movies with Mitchel Musso, who I was friends with then, and Miley, Emily and Cody.. I would love to have sleepover with all the girls.. Keke, Miranda, Demi, Selena and Miley. We all have so much common. It would be really fun if we became solid friends. It would be a loud, awesome party.
On her charity project GirlUp: GirlUp was created by United Nations and its goal is to bring awareness to girls in this country of the opportunities that other girls in less fortunate countries don’t have. They don’t have education or clean water. Some of the girls have to travel 12 or 15 KM to get water. Sometimes it takes 12 hours in dry heat for them to talk to get water. It’s really important for girls hear to be aware of this. GirlUp.Org and donate $5 would a great way to give back, it’s so important. I will either go to Liberia, Malawai or Libera as soon as I get a break from work.
Do you still talk with Jamie Lynn Spears [Zoey 101 costar]? I haven’t talked with her for a while because she had to keep changing her phone number. The paparazzi kept calling her to get details about Britney.. Working with her on the Zoey 101.. she was such a sweet, Southern girl. Things happened and she handled the situation well. I respect her for taking responsibility and raising the baby. Talk to anyone else from the cast? Yes, I still talk with Aaron Sanders, Chris and Kyle Massey and Abby Wilde.
How was it working with Dylan & Cole Sprouse? I adore the Sprouse twins. They are so real and down to earth. We’re close friends and still all go out. They are so goofy, especially in front of the paparazzi. They don’t take it [fame] seriously. Who was your first kiss? Cole Sprouse when we were 11 or 12 for a TV show. We joke that we’re soulmates and it should have worked out (smiles).

Are you dating anyone right now.. Would you date someone from Nickelodeon?: No, I’m not dating anyone right now. But, I would date anyone depending on the right time and the right situation.
If you have no water to bathe in, and you could use anything.. what other liquid would you use? I would bathe in Nickelodeon slime. It’s cool, goopy, stretchy. It’s glue with green food coloring and maybe some mayonnaise. I would also use the stuff that’s in those blue sour squeeze pops. I would want to eat it after, that wouldn’t be too sanity, but I would do it anyway (laughs). It’s so tasty.
Do you read oceanUP at all: Yes, I have been to it before. My mom gets Google Alerts, so she will show me some of things now and again. Looking at gossip sites can be addicting. We’re all human and we want to know. I’m overcritical, so seeing other people point out the flaws that you know you have can be hard.
Would you like to feature film star? Yes, it’s one of my major goals. I would love to do family movies, romantic comedies and some off the cuff Indie movies. I’ve turned down a lot of offers that weren’t right for me, I’m waiting for the perfect role at the right time.. something that I want to tell the world about.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years? Doing really really good films and being taken seriously as an actress. Pursuing music and touring around the world. And performing at venues like Madison Square Garden. And having a couple of successful albums.
Victoria starts working on 2nd season of her hit Victorious on October 25.
