Victoria Justice sat down with Latina Magazine to talk about her new show, Eye Candy. Victoria stars as tech genius Lindy in the new MTV show.
In her interview, Victoria chats doing her own stunts on set, being ready to transition from Nickelodeon star to MTV star, and so much more. Highlights can be found below.
On doing her own stunts: “In the first episode where I’m like crawling over these cars in the drive-thru and it was raining — we filmed that at like 3 o’clock in the morning and it was really cold and I remember they were like, Victoria you don’t have to do all this. I was like, no guys I really want to try it. I really want to do it. And it was really intense, but it’s so funny because when I get into Lindy mode and I start doing those action sequences I’m not even myself anymore.
I don’t even think about like, oh this could hurt — I just kind of dive head-in and just go for it 100%. But you kind of pay the price for it because I’ve had a few injuries and after doing all that car crawling, I woke up the next day and had so many bruises all over my legs and my butt. I hurt my ankle when I was running through Manhattan while filming it, so I actually had to take a day off from filming to go to the doctor. And I didn’t know if I was gonna be able to like run during the show but it eventually got better. It was intense.”
Ongoing from Nickelodeon star to MTV star: “It’s definitely a big change from Nickelodeon. But I think I was really ready to do a more mature role and playing a 21-year-old these are things that come with the territory. My character is a young girl living in New York City who is, you know, falling in love — and her sexuality is a part of that.”
