We Heart It
Liz Gillies might be best known for playing Jade West on Victorious, and although she appreciates her time on the show, it's definitely not the only role she wants to be defined by. The actress opened up in a recent interview about how being one of the stars of such a well-known TV show can be hard, especially right after it ends and you're trying to be taken seriously as an actress.
"When you play the same role for such a long time it's tough to get people to see you as anything but that character," Liz explained. "On top of that, it was a kids show so these kids are twice as invested because they grew up with you on their TVs. I want to prove that I can do lots of different things, play all kinds of characters. and I want to surprise people."
So it seems like she kind of wanted to break away from the character everyone was used to seeing her as, which is totally understandable. She's busy filming new projects now, so it seems like she has succeeded in transforming herself, one way or another.
