Born in Reading, Berkshire and raised in the small town of Wokingham, Berkshire, Victoria was involved in the arts from the young age of three, performing in pantomimes and singing in her church choir. She lived in the English countryside until she was a teenager, participating in local theatre productions, including starring as 'Nancy' in the musical Oliver, and 'Trixie' in Daisy Pulls It Off. She was also a hard worker, holding various odd jobs around town, including washing hair at the local salon and working at a gym. Every dime she made went back into perfecting her craft; paying for her singing and dancing lessons. Victoria landed a scholarship to train at the Arts Educational Schools in Chiswick, West London. She remained there for three years to obtain an honors degree in Dance and Musical Theatre. In her last year or school she landed her first official job in the arts at the prestigious Almeida Theatre in London, as the understudy of the lead role in their first ever musical: Brighton Rock [directed by Michael Attenborough]. For several years she worked in the musical theatre world in London, before deciding to pursue a film and television career in Los Angeles. When Victoria arrived in Los Angeles in 2012, she had two suitcases with all of her belongings inside, and knew one person. A self-proclaimed adventurer and workaholic, she was passionate and dedicated to pursuing her dream of being an actress. With not much money in her pocket, she found a nanny gig and started personal training on the side to make ends meet, while navigating the world of auditioning in LA. Luckily, she landed the first audition she went on, starring as 'Kristina' in the indie musical How Sweet It Is (2013) opposite Erika Christensen. Next up, her indie bookings continued appearing as 'Polina' in the sci-fi film _Ratpocalypse (2015)_ opposite Casper Van Dien. The film is currently in post production. After learning the ropes on a few indies, Victoria made the jump to the big leagues, quickly landing roles in Dans l'ombre de Mary: La promesse de Walt Disney (2013) for Disney, and Transformers: L'âge de l'extinction (2014) for Paramount. When not working Victoria loves to do yoga, she is a vegan, and has a huge passion for rescuing animals and finding them forever homes. She is also a fan of basketball; you can often catch her at the Clippers games. Victoria currently resides in Los Angeles with her rescue animals; two cats, Missy and Elton and her Pomeranian Bentley.
