Bornin Hereford, The United Kingdom
Jade has increasingly little to say about herself as time goes on, other than the fact she is an author, but she’s plenty happy with this. Living in imaginary realities and having a legitimate excuse for it is really all she’s ever wanted.
Jade is as dirty as you’d expect from her novels, and talking smut makes her smile.
She lives in the Herefordshire countryside with a couple of hounds and a guy who’s able to cope with her inherent weirdness.
She has a red living room, decorated with far more zebra print than most people could bear, and fights a constant battle with her addiction to Coca-Cola.

American teen sitcom
This article is about the Nickelodeon television series. For other uses, see Victorious (disambiguation).
Victorious (stylized as VICTORiOUS) is an American sitcom created by Dan Schneider that originally aired on Nickelodeon from March 27, 2010, to February 2, 2013. The series revolves around aspiring singer Tori Vega (portrayed by Victoria Justice), a teenager who attends a performing arts high school called Hollywood Arts High School, after taking her older sister Trina's (Daniella Monet) place in a showcase while getting into screwball situations on a daily basis. On her first day at Hollywood Arts, she meets Andre Harris (Leon Thomas III), Robbie Shapiro (Matt Bennett), Rex Powers (Robbie's puppet), Jade West (Elizabeth Gillies), Cat Valentine (Ariana Grande), and Beck Oliver (Avan Jogia). The series premiered after the 2010 Kids' Choice Awards. The series won for Favorite TV Show award at the 2012 Kids' Choice Awards and 2013 Kids' Choice Awards, beating out iCarly. Victorious earned four Emmy nominations.
On August 10, 2012, Justice stated that the series would not be renewed. Also, after the announcement of the series' spin-off Sam & Cat was made, fans of Victorious expressed dismay that its spin-off series was the reason for its ending, but Schneider himself stated otherwise. Although the Victorious cast only filmed three seasons, when the decision to end the series was made, Nickelodeon split the third season in half, making a fourth season.
The series follows Tori Vega, a teenage girl who is accepted into Hollywood Arts, a performing arts high school for talented teens. The show follows Tori and her friends as she finds her place within Hollywood Arts, completing school projects that usually involve musical and theatrical performances, and overcoming unusual and absurd challenges. Other students at Hollywood Arts (and the students who make up Tori's group of friends) include the musical prodigy Andre Harris, the socially awkward Robbie Shapiro and his ventriloquist dummy Rex, the sweet but dim-witted red-head Cat Valentine, the sarcastic and mean Jade West (who serves as Tori's frenemy), Jade's handsome down-to-earth boyfriend Beck Oliver, and Tori's untalented and self-absorbed older sister Trina. Other characters include Erwin Sikowitz, the performing-arts teacher for Hollywood Arts; Lane Alexander, the school's guidance counselor; and Sinjin Van Cleef, an odd and often unsettling classmate that handles audiovisual.

Main article: List of Victorious episodes
Victorious is the fifth series created by Dan Schneider for Nickelodeon, after The Amanda Show, Drake & Josh, Zoey 101, and iCarly. Schneider first met Victoria Justice in 2005, when she was twelve and arrived to audition for the part of Lola Martinez on Zoey 101. Impressed by her energy and look, Schneider hired her and, after working with her on three episodes, called Nickelodeon to say, "I've got your next star." Justice continued her role on Zoey 101 until the series ended in 2008. In the meantime, Disney Channel, Nickelodeon's main competitor, had experienced immense success with franchises like Hannah Montana and High School Musical, which featured original songs and generated revenue through music as well as television. Seeking to "follow where the kids are", Nickelodeon executives asked Schneider to create a music-based show for the channel. Near the end of Zoey 101's run, Justice was summoned to meet with Schneider about a potential series starring her.Victorious is the first series on Nickelodeon to premiere in the 2010s decade. Big Time Rush's first episode premiered two months earlier, but its original pilot premiered in 2009.
While discussing possible concepts for the series during the meeting, Justice mentioned that she had attended a performing arts middle school. The idea intrigued Schneider, who recognized the appeal of a series concerning fame. "If there is anything I've learned about kids today—and I'm not saying this is good or bad—it's that they all want to be stars," said Schneider. Marjorie Cohn, who was then Nickelodeon's executive vice president of original programming and development, agreed. "Every kid thinks they're five minutes away and one lucky circumstance from being famous", Cohn stated. She noted that Schneider's iCarly, a sitcom about a girl who hosts a popular web show, was spurred by the rise of YouTube celebrities and has become a successful series for Nickelodeon.
On August 13, 2008, Nickelodeon announced that Justice had signed "an overall talent and music deal" with the company, agreeing to star in a then-untitled musical-comedy series about a girl who attends a performing arts high school. While discussing the show's premise, Schneider stated that while it would be nice if more children "wanted to be teachers and social workers" instead of celebrities, "At least in Victorious, you see a world where they're all working on the talent part."Nickelodeon Productions and the Columbia/Epic Label Group of Sony Music Entertainment agreed to co-produce the series as part of a partnership to develop talent and release their music.
Jerry Trainor, Perez Hilton, Josh Peck, Kesha, Nathan Kress, Drake Bell, Miranda Sings, and Jennette McCurdy have appeared on the series in cameos or as guest stars.
Season 1 of Victorious began filming on October 5, 2009, and ended on April 14, 2010, with 20 episodes produced. Season 2 began filming October 4, 2010, and finished filming on February 23, 2011. In August 2011, Victoria Justice confirmed that she was returning to the Victorious set, as Season 3 began filming on October 3, 2011. During the TV special 7 Secrets with Victoria Justice, Justice explained the weekly schedule the cast and crew operate on: scripts are issued to them on Sunday nights, the cast has table reads on Mondays and Tuesdays, then the episode is shot on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and on Saturday, they watch a premiering of their show that is newly released to the public then.
Victoria Justice told M Magazine in August 2012 that "We will not be expecting a fourth season, this is the first time I've talked about it. I just found out a couple of days ago that we're not coming back. It's sad because I've been with Nickelodeon since I was 12 years old and I became a family with my Victorious cast. We spent a lot of time together and bonded for sure – I'll look back on the experience very fondly. It's a little shocking and a little bittersweet, but at the end of the day it might not be such a bad thing – we all want to do our own thing and continue to grow." The third season was split into two, thus making four seasons in total.
The series ended without a proper finale, a fact referenced in an episode of the series' spin-off, Sam & Cat, when the title characters' favorite show is cancelled and Cat asks "What kind of network cancels a show without giving it a proper finale?"
Several of the actors on Victorious had either appeared in other Nickelodeon programs or Broadway musicals prior to Victorious' premiere. In addition to Zoey 101, Victoria Justice appeared on iCarly in "iFight Shelby Marx" as Shelby Marx, as well as True Jackson, VP, The Naked Brothers Band, and The Troop. She also co-starred with Avan Jogia, who portrays Beck, in the Nickelodeon television film Spectacular!. Daniella Monet has guest starred as Rebecca Martin in three episodes of Zoey 101, Tootie in the Nickelodeon television film A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow Up, Timmy Turner!, the Supah Ninjas Season 1 episode "Morningstar Academy" as one of the main antagonists named Clarissa, and in Fred 2: Night of the Living Fred (in lieu of Jennette McCurdy) as Bertha. Leon Thomas III had not only guest starred in an episode of iCarly as Harper and also in The Naked Brothers Band but he had also previously appeared in musicals such as The Lion King, The Color Purple, and Caroline, or Change, and in the film August Rush. Elizabeth Gillies and Ariana Grande had co-starred in the musical 13.
Victorious was filmed at Nickelodeon on Sunset on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood. According to Paula Kaplan, Nickelodeon's executive Vice President for talent, "In our adult world, nobody accommodates us for down time. But in a child's life on a set, we do take that seriously. At our studios on Sunset Boulevard, where we shoot iCarly and Victorious, the greenrooms are filled with games and Rock Band. We create an environment where they can have fun with their colleagues and take it easy."
Victorious is set primarily at Hollywood Arts, however the front of Hollywood Arts High School are digitally altered photos of Burbank High School. The lunch area of Hollywood Arts depicts the back area of Nickelodeon on Sunset, with a parking lot next to the back area. According to David Hinkley of the New York Daily News, "Outside of school, Victorious has the same look as iCarly, with most of the action taking place on one main set with a few basic home/crib-furniture items." The series also has a BLIX machine from Zoey 101.
Like iCarly, Victorious received generally mixed reviews. Variety magazine reviewer Brian Lowry wrote, "Victorious has been cobbled together with the wooden-headed market in mind." David Hinkley of the New York Daily News says the series' format is nearly identical to iCarly's and hopes that the series will develop a "more distinctive personality" over the course of the season. Roger Catlin of the Hartford Courant describes Victorious as "harmless but hardly entertaining". Mark A. Perigard of the Boston Herald titled his review "Victorious is a big loser" and writes, "The bulk of the cast mugs for the cameras, probably to compensate for a script that could have been commissioned from fifth-graders." Linda Stasi of the New York Post was mixed; she agreed that the series contained over-acting performers, "corny" dialogue and a "terribly, terribly loud laugh track", but believed it was "a surefire tween hit".
However, reviewers were positive about Justice's performance and suggested that the show's potential hinged on her. Hinkley comments, "At this point, Justice is better at singing than acting, and the show doesn't flow as smoothly as iCarly, but Justice has the personality and talent needed for a shot at being 'the Next Big Teen Thing'". Perigard describes her as "undeniably appealing" and Lowry states, "Justice is winsome and talented enough to provide the latest show a leg up in connecting with tween girls." Emily Ashby of Common Sense Media gave the series four out of five stars, writing, "Upbeat iCarly-like tween comedy promotes confidence".
The series' premiere did well among viewers. The first episode, advertised as a "sneak preview" of the series, aired after the 2010 Kids' Choice Awards on March 27, 2010, to 5.7 million viewers, the second-highest premiering live-action Nickelodeon series to date. Its second episode was advertised as the series' official premiere and drew 3.48 million viewers. By comparison, Nickelodeon's Big Time Rush received 3.5 million viewers for its "sneak preview" debut in November 2009, and 7.1 million total viewers for its "premiere" in January 2010.
On April 2, 2011, the Season 2 premiere episode "Beggin' on Your Knees" became the most-watched episode of the series to date, with 6.1 million total viewers.
In fall 2011, Spin Master released dolls and toys based on the show. In June 2011, Walmart announced an exclusive-to-Walmart product line for the show; including over 250 products, such as apparel, accessories, lunch boxes, T-shirts, soundtrack CDs, DVDs, etc. It has sold its newest toy, Singing Tori, a doll of Tori singing. In 2012 dolls of Cat, Trina, and Jade were released. In late April 2012, McDonald's released Victorious toys, included in their Happy Meals. They relaunched in Australia in January/February 2013.
On November 15, 2011, Victorious: Time to Shine for Xbox 360 Kinect and Hollywood Arts Debut for Nintendo DS were released. On November 13, 2012, Victorious: Taking the Lead for Wii and Nintendo DS was released.

Jade West(born July 26th, 1993) is one of the main characters in the TV series Victorious. Although she plays the rival figure/antagonist to the shows main character, Tori Vega, she still seems to hang out with her and her friends. Jade is deep, dark, rebellious and down-to-earth, which is shown in her attitude and clothing.
She first appeared in "Pilot", being harsh to Tori because of her rubbing coffee off of her boyfriend Beck's, shirt. In ways of revenge, she pours coffee on Tori in front of the whole class, humilliating her. Tori gets her revenge back on her by kissing her boyfriend during Alphabet Inprov, thus angering Jade. Throughout Seasons 1 and 2 she has been cruel and harsh to Tori, but their friendship seen to blossom in Season 3, when Jade decides to give up her performance at The Platinum Music Awards for Tori.
Jade is described as mean, impulsive, sarcastic, jealous, sadistic, vengeful, and devious through out the series but she's actually a good person and has also shown to have a good heart. She has a wierd thing for blood, scissors, a lump of fat, pain and monkey fur. She is also a very talented singer proving it in "Freak The Freak Out" and is good with writing scripts for plays ad short films.
She was portrayed by Elizabeth Gillies.
Jade's childhood has been noted to be an unhappy one on a few occasions throughout the series. She says that the ice cream reminds her of it, and that her favorite toy was a hammer (Ice Cream for Ke$ha).
She was friends with Andre Harris, Robbie Shapiro, Cat Valentine, and Beck Oliver since at least 2008, where they formed an official ping pong team at Hollywood Arts High School. (The Great Ping Pong Scam) She and Beck also began dating at some point this year (Jade Dumps Beck).
Appearance and Personality
Jade started off as a brunette with blue-green eyes and stands at 5'7". Her skin is noticeably pale (although she did get a tan, increase muscle mass, and dyed her hair darker for the 2nd season).
Jade has a Gothic sense of style, and aside from her dark, occasionally laced clothing she wears dark makeup and paints her nails black as well. The jewelry she wears is designed by real life artist Dre Swain, and she also wears dark red Doc Martens and black combat boots. She carries a Gears of War messenger bag. Jade also has multiple streaks in her hair that change color periodically. In season one her streaks in her brown hair are at first pink, blonde and light blue before going red for the rest of the season. In season two she dyed her hair black and her streaks are blue and green. In season three her hair is a dark brown and her streaks are mostly green, but also blue in a couple of episodes. In season four her hair is shorter and her streaks are purple for 10 of the 13 episodes. She also has two piercings, one in her left eyebrow and one on her nose. Jade has a rebel star tattoo on her right forearm and has since gotten another one that was never shown onscreen (Beck mentions that "Jade's getting her new tattoo" in a video on TheSlap.com, Tori Takes Requests #2).
Jade has a very prickly personality; she is known for being sassy, dark, and sarcastic to those around her. She was described as "freaky" by the boy in Ice Cream for Ke$ha, to which she took offense to, but when she was described as "weird" by Moose in Three Girls and a Moose, she acknowledged and admitted it, nodding along. Jade has a 'thing' for scissors, first shown in Wi-Fi in the Sky as her username on TheSlap is 'ScissorLuv'. Her locker is also decorated with numerous scissors, her favorite (horror) movie is The Scissoring, and she even has a favorite pair as shown in her videos on The Slap and buys herself new pairs (Jade Gets Crushed). She also takes interest in pain (Cat's New Boyfriend), a lump of fat (Rex Dies), monkey fur, and blood (Freak the Freak Out (episode)), (Tori Gets Stuck). She also enjoys breathing in the fumes of dead people (Car, Rain & Fire), and likes to pretend she's been captured by witches and is being made into human soup while in hot tubs (IParty with Victorious). She has a macabre sense of humor, usually saying things about people being hit by a bus at various episodes, as well as somewhat sadistic tendencies, such as enjoying people getting hurt, even her own boyfriend being slapped (in a scene).
Jade is jealous, often insatiable, mean and rude to many people. She sometimes shows authority and control at Hollywood Arts, yelling at others and even using physical force at times (although she does not fight; she retaliates in way "that will make [someone] sad for a long time". She is very jealous and possessive of her boyfriend Beck, protecting him from others that have a seem interested in him even as friends. Despite her tough attitude, she can get freaked out by a few things, revealed by her horrified reaction to a dog attacking who she thought to be Beck (Jade Dumps Beck), freaking out when Sinjin broke into her house (Wi-Fi in the Sky), crying when she learned she was sweating for the first time (Survival of the Hottest), Sikowitz scaring her multiple times (iParty with Victorious), freaking out when Cat removed her eyebrows (Crazy Ponnie), holding onto Beck when soldiers invaded the gang's hotel in Yerba, and getting knocked down by Sheema in Locked Up!.
Jade fits the stereotype of a "bad girl" much more than a "mean girl". She is very rebellious, as she doesn't like being told what to do and often points out that she's doing something because she wants to, not because someone told her to (for instance, she got her piercings 45 minutes after her mother said no to Jade), and often claims that she is only doing something because she wants to and not because someone tells her to (The Great Ping Pong Scam). However, she seems to obey Beck, and he is the only one able to calm her down and make her at least somewhat polite and nice to other people, for example in Beggin' on Your Knees:
Jade is a hardworking student at Hollywood Arts, where she dedicates her time to writing, acting, and singing. She seems to favor script writing, as she writes the play Well Wishes in Wok Star and manages to get it produced with the help of Tori. She seems to prefer to star in works she both writes and directs, and these works include: "Clowns Don't Bounce" (Prome Wrecker), an unnamed TV series where she plays the main character and her evil twin (only written; talked about in a post on The Slap), and her re-audition in Helen Back Again. All of these were dark and scary. She also seems to prefer film over stage, as her re-audition for Principal Helen Dubois was in the form of a short film while Beck's was a monologue on stage. Often, her performances are considered "weird" and "disturbing", but most people still enjoy them; an example of this is Well Wishes.
It is shown throughout the series that Jade can be quite insecure, which may be part of the reason she is so rude towards people. For example, she has often assumed that Beck was cheating on her; she was devastated when she briefly broke up with him and he wouldn't take her back, and didn't want anyone "cool" to see her crying (Jade Dumps Beck). She also seems to be worried about her father's opinion of her hopes and dreams and went to great lengths to make him enjoy her play "Well Wishes" in Wok Star. She also competed with the rest of the gang to get the most followers on The Slap to maintain popularity and dominance. She gets very upset when a satellite catches a picture of her that makes it look like she is picking her nose in The Bad Roommate and doesn't want anyone to see.
Jade often helps solves the group's challenge. For instance, in Ice Cream for Ke$ha, she thought of the idea that the "S" would be found in the least popular flavor of ice cream. In Terror on Cupcake Street, she mentioned that the confetti canon would scare the thugs away and it did. Even before Tori (and even Trina Vega) joined the gang, she still solved problems, an example of this is in The Great Ping Pong Scam. In her profile video on The Slap, she describes herself as smart and deep.
Jade the doll Jade and her doll Jade hates many things for various reasons, as reflected in her TheSlap segment, What I Hate, but she also has two episodes of these segments titled "What I Love", because she does not want to be predictable.
Although Jade seems tough and scary at times, she has been proven to only be very intimidating and she lost her only physical altercation with someone other than Tori (The Wood) and Cat (Crazy Ponnie); Sheema quickly knocked her to the ground in Locked Up!. Despite acting as creepy as she does, she is disgusted by many things including Trina Vega's pimple in Victori-Yes. She can also be quite flirty and feminine even in her dark, blunt nature - for example, she wears a very nice dress to the Prome in Prome Wrecker even though she only attends for revenge.
Despite her usual personality, she seems to have a bit of a soft side for young kids, as shown on her TheSlap.com segment, "Jade With Tots." In her conversations with preschoolers, although she is still herself, she seems more kind towards the kids. For example, when one of the kids talks too quietly, she loosely says "Gotta speak up, sweetheart." Also, when talking to another child, she smiles and says casually, "So I hear you're a little artist. You like art?".
Relationships with Other Characters
Beck is Jade's boyfriend for over three years, and she is/was very possessive of him. She doesn't like him talking to or flirting with other girls who she does not know and has trust issues with him. This sometimes irritates Beck; he once deleted his account on TheSlap.com because Jade kept spamming him and "freaking out", but he rejoined after she promised to stop. She has not done this since he re-joined, showing she can make compromises and does love and respect him. Her obsession with Beck is first made apparent in the Pilot, when she sees Tori wiping coffee off of Beck's shirt and immediately misinterprets the action as flirting. Though Jade is usually the one to show love in the relationship, the couple are shown to be mutually in love on multiple occasions such as when Beck says "I never stopped loving you". She dumps Beck briefly in the episode Jade Dumps Beck, but has second thoughts about it and quickly wants him back. She goes through a short state of depression when Beck doesn't take her back, even resorting to asking for help from her frenemy, Tori. At the end of the same episode, they rekindle their relationship and continue dating. Beck also clearly loves to tease and rile up Jade, either by making her jealous or letting her get carried away by her own theories. This is exemplified in Wi-Fi in the Sky when he doesn't tell her his cheerleader neighbor is only 9 years old. Jade later claims that he does this all the time. In Beck's profile video on TheSlap.com, Jade states that they've been dating for two years and been exclusive for a year and a half. Jade seems to show a softer side when she and Beck are alone, which has been seen on some of their videos on TheSlap. Jade also seems to be meaner and gets into fights with Tori more often when Beck is not there with her. In the newest "Jade With Tots" episode, Beck tells Jade that he loves her. But in The Worst Couple, they broke up. After this, they didn't interact often, and when they did, they didn't seem to get along well. For instance, in How Trina Got In, Jade mocks Beck and says (sarcastically) that he knows everything except how to keep a girlfriend happy. Additionally, both Jade and Beck act very awkward around each other in André's Horrible Girl, both whispering to a friend that no one told them the other would be there, and they aren't happy about it. It is likely, however, that she still has lingering feelings for him as she looked upset and hurt when she saw Beck hugging Tori and trying to kiss her in Tori Goes Platinum. Also, Beck seems to still care about her as shown in Opposite Date, when he wants to check if Jade is truly okay with him dating other girls,even though they were broken up at that point. In the episode, Tori Fixes Beck and Jade, Jade sang a song dedicated to Beck. At the end they got back together. Since then, their relationship was stable till the end of the show. (See: Bade)
Jade and Tori's friendship is complicated, and is full of insults and fighting, but it's also one of the closest relationships on Victorious. Jade appears to have had an open rivalry with Tori ever since the first episode (Pilot), where Tori spilled coffee on Beck and was wiping the coffee off him, then when Jade poured coffee on Tori, then Tori kissed Beck for revenge. As of episode 3, Stage Fighting, they seem to be developing a possible friendship, though she still displays a dislike for Tori. In the fourth episode, The Birthweek Song, she gives Tori coffee she found in the garbage and says "Yeah, I'm not really her friend."
Despite saying this, Jade comes to Tori when she breaks up with Beck in Jade Dumps Beck, and asks for her advice (though Jade claims this is because she wouldn't want anyone cool to see her in that state). In Freak the Freak Out, Jade tries to use Tori to defeat two stuck-up girls at the Karaoke Dokie after she and Cat were unfairly banned from performing there, indicating that regardless of her hostility toward her, she regards Tori as a worthy performer. In Wok Star, Tori helps Jade produce a play she wrote herself to impress her dad. When her dad admits that Jade's play was excellent, Tori and Jade hug, signaling that the two are now considered friends. In Beck Falls for Tori, Jade helps Tori by forcing her to do the stunt and overcome her fear.
In Tori Gets Stuck, Jade tries relentlessly to steal Tori's role in Steamboat Suzy and they seem to be enemies once again. In Prom Wrecker, Tori plans her prome on the same day as Jade's play "Clowns Don't Bounce" by accident, so Jade seeks revenge and tries to ruin Tori's prome. Eventually, Jade's plan backfires. They seem to be back on bad terms, as in Helen Back Again, Jade didn't help Tori get her spot in the school back, in Who Did It to Trina?, Jade blames Tori for her sister's injuries, and in Jade Gets Crushed, Tori states multiple times that Jade is evil. In Tori & Jade's Play Date they work together to revenge against two boys who are annoying them. They finally become friends in Tori Goes Platinum, when Jade sees Tori refuse to kiss Beck because she considers Jade to be her friend and she believes kissing a friend's ex-boyfriend is wrong. Because of this, Jade gives Tori her spot in the Platinum Music Awards back and cheers her on in the audience showing thus the two becoming friends.
Regardless to say, however, Tori and Jade are enemies at times and at times but they are also friends. So, let's just say they two girls have a strong sense of the relationship, 'frenemy' but we can't say they aren't friends because they do act like it. (See: Jori)
Despite their very opposite personalities, Jade and Cat are best friends. Each usually expresses concern for the other when they're hurt and calls out the person who caused it. Jade is also less hostile and more patient towards Cat than towards most people (even though she did once say, "Is it a device that can beam you to another table? Because if it is, which button do I push?!" and tells her she's "screwed up"). Cat is not as easily offended by Jade (although in Rex Dies, Jade makes a death threat to Cat, saying, "If someone fell of this cat-walk and hit the floor really hard, do you think they'd live?" and in A Film by Dale Squires, she uses the fact that she's acting as an excuse to slap Cat's face). Even though Cat unintentionally electrocutes Jade in Rex Dies, Jade is shown as not being extremely upset by it. In the episode Survival of the Hottest, they hug, which implies that they're very good friends since Jade rarely hugs anyone willingly. They seem to love each other like sisters. In Freak the Freak Out, they sing the song Give It Up together. Jade and Cat often comment on each other's boards on TheSlap. Jade seems to exercise a parental sort of control over Cat and seems to know her very well. Jade admittedly doesn't hate Cat's video profile, and Beck tells Cat how this is a big compliment from Jade. Jade has also been seen sleeping over at Cat Valentine house before in a video[Cat and Jades bedtime story] on The Slap.
It seems that Cat knows Jade rather well, as she managed to get Jade a Christmas present she liked. It should be noted that Jade's attitude towards Cat changes depending on the episode or her mood. (See: Cade)
Jade doesn't seem to have a problem with André. They have been friends for at least two years as revealed in The Great Ping Pong Scam. They eat at the same table and talk amongst the same group of people. She does get annoyed by André from time to time, as shown in Beck's Big Break when she is annoyed by him when he's playing music on his keyboard, so she knocks the batteries out of it. On the other hand they seem to be pretty nice to each other, as seen in The Diddly-Bops, where Jade was among the ones trying to console André about losing his record deal. She even pulls Rex's arm off for joking about the situation. In Jade Gets Crushed, André falls in love with Jade, but at the end of the episode, seems to get over her. Also, in The Worst Couple, Jade says something rude to every single character except André, which was noticed by a lot of people. In the final season, they had been seen to have been hanging out a lot more and spending time together. André even laughed a little too loud whenever Jade insulted anyone, even Tori, his own best friend. Fans had noticed this too, and people were questioning whether or not André still had feelings for Jade. It appears that Dan Schneider had meant for this to happen, because he leaked a video of a future kiss between Jade and André uploaded it once more. (See: Jandré)
Jade has tortured Robbie during the first series though it has been slowed down since then. She has insulted him and Rex a couple of times, even tearing off Rex's arm with a smirk. In Survival of the Hottest, Jade forces Robbie to give her his water because she is hot and thirsty. She was elated to have Rex die, even with the emotional trauma it would cause Robbie, in Rex Dies. However, her reason was so that Robbie could get over Rex and finally become normal, possibly meaning, in her own way, she cares about Robbie's mental health. They are seen to be at least friendly acquaintances in The Diddly-Bops when Jade compliments Robbie on his song about broken glass, the only character to agree with him on it by saying "I like it". In Wok Star, he shows some compassion for her regarding her play, and confusion at her ways of dealing with stress (i.e.: cutting up a trash can). Yet, he joins in on the plan to make Jade's play better for the opening act. On TheSlap.com, Jade once commented: "Caught myself singing along to Robbie/Rex's song, Forever Baby. What is wrong with me? I don't even know who I am anymore!" (See: Rade)
Jade has barely interacted with Trina so far, but she appears to hate her. In Jade Dumps Beck, Trina gives her a flyer advertising her one-woman show. Jade responds by crumpling up the flier and stuffing it down Trina's shirtfront. In Survival of the Hottest, Jade yells bluntly to Trina twice that no one likes her. Also, when Tori asked Jade what she thought she should get Trina for her birthday, she replied wittily "talent", making it clear that she doesn't think Trina has any talent, which is probably what most people would say in the matter. She finds Trina's accident in Who Did it to Trina? hilarious, and even uploaded it online. However, in Wanko's Warehouse, she goes with the gang and Jade turns on Trina as usual. (See: Trade)
Jade claims that Sikowitz is her favorite teacher in her video profile on TheSlap, and mostly participates in his activities. During "Locked Up!" she is the first to react/run over to greet "their favorite teacher". Sikowitz doesn't really have a relationship with her, although he calls her to be in an improv scene in the "Pilot" and randomly calls on her to be in a Drive-By Acting Exercise, which annoyed her but she did it anyway. Jade was also part of the Diddly-Bops, a children's group that Sikowitz put together for his roommate's son's birthday party. Jade was also the first to comment about Sikowitz's TheSlap page. In "Sleepover at Sikowitz's", Jade is the first to volunteer to go to Sikowitz's house. Sikowitz always says phrases that start with "Ah, Jade..." giving her an advice or making a comment about her personality.
Sinjin Van Cleef
Sinjin has a massive crush on Jade, but she dislikes him very much. In Jade Dumps Beck, when Sinjin heard that Jade dumped Beck, Sinjin told her, "Want one [boyfriend]?" Jade responded, "Walk away." and he did so quickly. Also, when the news of Jade and Beck splitting spread, Sinjin and his friend made an attempt to sit with her at lunch, until Jade merely (and loudly) said, NO and the two walked away. In "Tori the Zombie", Jade said his mother gave birth to the wrong thing. Sinjin was also shown to be in Jade's house, obviously without permission much to Jade's annoyance in "Wi-Fi in the Sky". On TheSlap, he talks about Jade and even writes her poems. This may show he has an unhealthy obsession with her. In Wok Star he helped her with set design. When he tried to talk to her about different kinds of moss to use for the set, she compared it with his hair. He then continued to speak to Jade, which annoyed her and she commanded him to "Go." Before she even finished the word he took off running, showing he always does what she says and greatly respects her (despite him breaking into her house). Tori said it made pee run down his leg. In a video on "The Slap" Sinjin made puppets of him and Jade. He acted as if Jade was in love with him and wanted to dump Beck so she could go out with him. Jade walks into the room to see Sinjin and calmly tells him that is not okay. (See: Sade)
Jade's relationships with her family are known to be terrible. According to her, her father "hates [her] guts", has called the cops on her, thinks that all of her creative desires are stupid, and she wants to show him that he is wrong. She seems to disrespect her mother and has called her "stupid" quite a few times, and claims that she loves the movie The Scissoring more than her mother (Three Girls and a Moose). Her grandma doesn't approve of her style, and Jade once told her to "get out of here" when asked about the kind of guy she wanted to marry. She once locked her cousin in a closet, she seems to think of her stepmother as annoying because she takes up all her father's attention, and she enjoys listening to her brother panic. (Most of these examples are from numerous posts and videos on TheSlap.com.)

Haworth, New Jersey, U.S.
Elizabeth Egan Gillies (born July 26, 1993) is an American actress and singer. Gillies made her Broadway debut at age 15 in the musical 13, playing the character of Lucy. She made her first television appearance in The Black Donnellys (2007), later starring as Jade West in the Nickelodeon series Victorious (2010–2013). From 2011 to 2014, she provided the voice of Daphne in Nickelodeon's Winx Club, and she had a main role in the FX comedy series Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll (2015–2016). Since 2017, Gillies has starred as billionaire heiress and energy executive Fallon Carrington in The CW's series Dynasty, a reboot of the 1980s series of the same name. She has also appeared in various feature and television films, including the horror filmAnimal (2014), the television film Killing Daddy (2014), the comedy filmVacation (2015), and the black comedythriller filmArizona (2018).
Gillies made her debut as a singer on Victorious with the song "Give It Up" in 2011, singing alongside Ariana Grande. She released other songs while on the show, including "You Don't Know Me" and "Take a Hint", singing alongside Victoria Justice, both songs being part of the Victorious soundtrack.
Elizabeth Egan Gillies was born in Haworth, New Jersey, on July 26, 1993, to Dave and Lorrie Gillies. She has one younger brother, born 1996. Gillies has stated that she has Irish ancestry, and an Italian grandmother and great-grandmother. She left high school in her freshman year to pursue acting and participated in an online high school program.
2005–2009: Early work
Gillies' acting career began at age 12, when she started going to local open casting calls. She quickly began appearing in commercials for companies such as Virgin Mobile. Gillies' first television role was as a recurring character in three episodes of The Black Donnellys. She has stated that she was not allowed to watch the finished show in its entirety because her parents felt it was not appropriate for her at the time.
In 2008, she played small roles in The Clique, Harold, and Locker 514. That year she was also cast as Lucy in a Goodspeed production of Jason Robert Brown's new musical 13, alongside her future Victorious co-star, Ariana Grande. Later that year, 13 moved to Broadway, which made it the first Broadway production to have a cast and band entirely made up of teenagers. Gillies remained with the production until its closure on January 4, 2009.
2010–2014: Victorious and breakthrough
In 2010, Gillies was cast as bad girl and occasional antagonist Jade West in the Nickelodeon television show Victorious, a sitcom revolving around teenagers at a performing arts high school in Hollywood, which marked her second time working alongside 13 co-star Ariana Grande. Regarding her Victorious character, Gillies said "It's wonderful. I love playing Jade. I always say she's not so much the 'mean' girl, but the 'bad' girl in so many ways. She has a lot of human qualities to her – she's not just completely sociopathic. She's sweet with her boyfriend. It's nice to play a character with some depth." The show premiered on March 27, 2010. During her time on Victorious, Gillies was featured in several songs on the soundtracks Victorious and Victorious 2.0, including "Give It Up" (duet with Ariana Grande), and "Take a Hint" (duet with Victoria Justice). She also wrote and recorded the song "You Don't Know Me" for an episode of Victorious, and it was later featured in Victorious 3.0.
She lent her talents to other Nick shows, voicing the character of Daphne on the Nickelodeon revival of Winx Club and recording Winx Club's official song, "We Are Believix." She also appeared in an episode of Big Time Rush and as a contestant on BrainSurge and Figure It Out. Beginning in 2012, Gillies began playing small guest roles outside Nickelodeon. Notable appearances include White Collar and The Exes. In July 2012, it was reported that Gillies was working on an alternative rock album.Victorious ended on February 2, 2013, after four seasons. Following the cancellation of the series, Gillies took some time off from acting.
In 2013, she was cast as Courtney in the musical adaptation of Jawbreaker and participated in a reading of the show in Manhattan. The musical did not end up being taken to Broadway. On December 10, 2013, Gillies recorded a duet of "Santa Baby" with Ariana Grande for the latter's Christmas Kisses EP. In 2014, Gillies appeared in the horror film Animal as Mandy and the Lifetime movie Killing Daddy, playing Callie Ross. Animal was filmed in the summer of 2013 in Manchester, Connecticut, and was produced by Drew Barrymore. The film also features Gillies' former Winx Club co-star Keke Palmer and was released on iTunes June 17, 2014.
2015–present: Further acting
In 2015, Gillies was cast as Heather in the remake of Vacation. The film received a wide release on July 29, 2015. She was then cast in the comedy series Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll as Gigi, an aspiring singer and daughter of a former rock star named Johnny Rock (portrayed by the show's creator Denis Leary). The show premiered July 16, 2015 to mixed reviews, but Gillies' performance as Gigi was well received. On September 9, 2016, FX declined to renew the show for a third season, effectively canceling the series.
In 2017, Gillies was cast as Fallon Carrington in The CW television series Dynasty, a reboot of the 1980s series of the same name. After Nicollette Sheridan left the role of Fallon's mother Alexis Carrington near the end of the second season, Gillies began playing the character temporarily, as well as continuing to portray Fallon. In 2018, Gillies starred in the dark-comedythriller film Arizona as Kelsey. It was first premiered at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, and later attained a theatrical release, as well as being released direct-to-video.
In 2019, Gillies, alongside Matt Bennett, made a surprise appearance during the November 19th show of her Victorious co-star Ariana Grande's Sweetener World Tour in Atlanta, Georgia in which Grande and Bennett performed "I Think You're Swell", while Grande and Gillies performed "Give It Up", both songs from Victorious. In 2021, it was announced Gillies would voice the titular character in the upcoming superhero feature Catwoman: Hunted.
On August 8, 2020, Gillies married music producer Michael Corcoran at a private ceremony in Chesterfield Township, New Jersey. They reside in Atlanta, Georgia.

List of Victorious characters
Wikipedia list article
This is a list of characters from the Nickelodeon sitcom Victorious. The series centers on Tori Vega, a student of Hollywood Arts who gets into unpredictable situations with her friends. Victorious was created by Dan Schneider, who also serves as executive producer.
Tori Vega (portrayed by Victoria Justice) is the younger sister of Trina Vega and attends Hollywood Arts, a performing arts high school, along with her.
When Trina experiences an allergic reaction to a Chinese herb to try to make her voice sound better, Trina's tongue gets swollen right before a big showcase at school. She is volunteered by Andre Harris to take her place, since she knew how the piece was meant to be performed as well as all the lyrics. Tori performs "Make it Shine", which is the theme song, and everyone is impressed with her performance, including principal Eikner, who offers her an enrollment to the school. She accepts it and is admitted to Hollywood Arts. Initially feeling out of place at Hollywood Arts, Tori makes new friends and becomes more comfortable. From there, the show details Tori's journey through school as she gets into unusual situations have differences and adventures with her friends. She is one of the favorite students of her teacher, Sikowitz.
She is depicted as creative, nice, caring, forgiving, responsible, positive, easy-going, and friendly, though she can be sneaky and vindictive, going as low as to manipulate her friends and family, especially her older sister, Trina, but she will always do the right thing in the end. Tori is shown to care for her friends and family a lot and is willing to help them when she is hesitant to.
Tori is friends with Beck Oliver, Cat Valentine, Robbie Shapiro, and is close to Andre. She often tries to be nice to Jade and sometimes describes Jade as her friend, even though Jade herself does not. In some episodes, they seem to be moving towards becoming friends, although most of the time, Jade seems to be "frenemies" with Tori.
In later episodes, Tori is shown to wear glasses when at home and at school she wears contacts.
She, or another student resembling her, can be seen together with Beck or a boy resembling him in the Sam & Cat episode '#MommaGoomer', as Sam and Cat go to Hollywood Arts in order to ask Sikowitz for help.
Andre Harris (portrayed by Leon Thomas III) is Tori's best friend and mentor at Hollywood Arts. Andre is an aspiring musician who loves to perform and write his songs. He can play many instruments, including the guitar, keyboard, piano, and the French horn, but prefers the keyboard and piano. Andre takes his music seriously and is usually seen playing at all of Tori's performances. He is a talented singer and songwriter, having co-written nearly every song Tori has performed. He also often gets Tori to be a backup singer for him at his performances.
Andre is shown to be witty and kind and Tori often relies on him for support in her time of need, and he is always there for her, although she is easily distracted at times. Tori often ask him for help or advice. He also likes to make jokes, but none of the other characters find him humorous.
Andre has a grandmother who is mentally unstable. He also has a cousin who works as an actor, and an uncle who is a real estate agent, who once sold a house to Kenan Thompson.
In "Jade Gets Crushed", Andre develops feelings for Jade after they work together on a song for a project for one of Andre's classes and he hears Jade sing beautifully. At the end of the episode, Andre tells Tori that it seems that he is breaking up with Jade, but his former crush on Jade is mentioned again in "Tori Fixes Beck and Jade".
In "Tori Goes Platinum", it is revealed by Andre that singer Bruno Mars is one of his influences to being a musician when he tells Tori, Cat and Jade at Mason Thornesmith's office that he saw Bruno Mars in the men's room and says that Mars is one of his idols.
Robbie Shapiro (portrayed by Matt Bennett) is one of Tori's friends at Hollywood Arts. He speaks along with a puppet, Rex Powers, whom he and all others speak to as if it were an actual person. Robbie is a skilled ventriloquist, but he was uncredited for his talent until the episode "Freak the Freak Out". In the episode, Robbie does not understand why he was referred to as a "ventriloquist", which either jokingly indicates that Rex has a mind of his own and is not controlled by Robbie at all or (in a more serious matter) that Robbie suffers from schizophrenia, therefore considering Rex a real person. He is said to have had Rex since he was little and they are almost always seen together. Robbie personifies Rex, which leads to many arguments about Rex's true sentience. He constantly argues that Rex is not a puppet or dummy when told otherwise. Robbie is close to Rex and affectionate towards him, though Rex ridicules him often.
Robbie is considered nerdy, shy, and “socially awkward”, but a good, loyal, and honest friend to others. Robbie has a great deal of trouble with relationships and attracting girls. Robbie is also in love with Cat Valentine, which is proven in the episode "The Blonde Squad" in which Robbie writes and sings the song 'I Think You're Swell' for her. The song is about what a great person she is, and how they get along so well, and that she is all he thinks about. She, however, does not appear to get the true feelings behind it, though she does appear to greatly enjoy the song. He is also shown to be the only one who knows Cat's full name, Caterina. He does not seem to have a sense of privacy. His only relative who has ever been seen is his grandmother. Robbie is intolerant to gluten, otherwise known as Celiac Disease. It is revealed in the episode 'Wok Star' that Robbie is Jewish because he spent his Bar Mitzvah money on leather pants and male make-up. He is also mistaken for a girl in a couple of episodes such as 'Locked Up!', in which he is in a completely different situation in jail in a foreign country.
Rex Powers (physically portrayed by a ventriloquist dummy named Christopher Cane, performed by Matt Bennett, voiced by an uncredited Jake Farrow) is Robbie's alter ego, who is a dummy that Robbie carries around everywhere. Robbie has had Rex since he was young. Since Robbie is too shy to speak for himself most of the time, he talks as Rex, using him to voice his actual feelings and thoughts. The others treat Rex as a real person, and both Rex and Robbie dislike it when Rex is called a 'dummy' or 'puppet'. Rex is obsessed with 'Northridge Girls', dumb, talentless and 'easy' girls from a Los Angeles neighborhood.
In "Rex Dies" he gets sucked into a wind machine and is taken to a hospital, even though he is a dummy. Rex is shown to have a huge crush on Tori and constantly flirts with her, though she is annoyed by his affection. Robbie often turns to Rex for advice and insight, though Rex's advice is almost always off-beat. Rex is sarcastic and mean, especially to Robbie, though it is shown that neither can stay without the other.
In the first 3 seasons, Rex is always in Robbie's company. In season 4 for unexplained reasons, Robbie is frequently seen without Rex. Part 2 of 'Freak the Freak Out' was the first episode not to feature Rex.
In 2011, Rex hosted a bloopers episode of Victorious titled "Blooptorious" in which he interviewed cast members and showed outtakes from the series. In the episode, Rex is named Christopher Cane and is not accompanied by Robbie. He also mentions that, prior to being offered the role of Rex in Victorious, he was almost given the role of Spencer Shay in iCarly, but was ultimately not chosen in favour of Jerry Trainor, whom he hates for that reason. As Christopher Cane, he also hosted a 2011 blooper episode of iCarly titled "iBloop 2: Electric Bloopaloo".
Rex later had a guest appearance at the end of the 2015 Game Shakers episode 'Tiny Pickles' (Season 1, Episode 5) where he is a truck driver.
Jade West (portrayed by Elizabeth Gillies) is a frenemy of Tori from Hollywood Arts. She has a gothic sense of style—always wearing dark clothes with eyebrow piercings and different colors of streaks in her hair—and is the long-time girlfriend of Beck Oliver. She is very possessive and sometimes controlling of her boyfriend and is known to lash out at anyone who she views as a threat to their relationship. She shows very little affection for anyone.
In the pilot episode, Jade believes that Tori is flirting with Beck, so she later pours coffee onto Tori's head during an acting class. Tori later gets even with her by defeating her in an alphabetical improv game and kissing Beck as they were the only two actors remaining in the scene.
Jade has been known to take obsession in triumphing over any enemies or rivals she may find, and occasionally has been known to take an interest in bizarre, dark, or unusual things that usually would repulse or frighten other people. She has a fascination with scissors, as she is sometimes seen holding scissors and her locker is decorated with them.
In 'Ice Cream for Ke$ha', it is revealed that her childhood was a dark and unhappy one, her favorite play toy being a hammer and scissors, and that she had been raised by an unsupportive and similarly emotionless father and a mother she could not emotionally connect with. She is also seen to be an amazing singer and actress, which are the main talents that got her into Hollywood Arts. In the season 1 episode "Jade Dumps Beck", it is revealed that they had been dating for nearly two years. However, they break up in the episode "The Worst Couple" after non-stop fighting, although it becomes clear that Jade still has feelings for him. After taking some time apart, the two make amends in the episode "Tori Fixes Beck and Jade" when Jade sings a song that is implied to be dedicated to Beck, leading them to admit that they have missed each other and get back together.
Jade later appeared in the Sam & Cat episode '#TheKillerTunaJump' where she ends up meeting Sam Puckett and befriending her, whereas Cat had thought that the two girls would kill each other upon first sight due to their similar personalities. It is Sam and Jade's friendship that makes Cat jealous enough to call Freddie Benson to Los Angeles so that she can flirt with him, resulting instead in Sam briefly becoming Robbie Shapiro's girlfriend.
Catarina "Cat" Valentine (portrayed by Ariana Grande) is one of Tori's eccentric friends from Hollywood Arts. She is fun, energetic, and at times oblivious. In a video on TheSlap, she reveals that her full first name is Catarina but only her grandmother calls her by her full name. It was also revealed by Robbie in "The Blonde Squad" when he yelled "Catarina Valentine, I will not sit here anymore and listen to you talk bad about yourself!" She is relatively friendly and liked by all of the students. She is sweet, naive, bubbly and happy, often unsuspecting of what is going on around her. She has a playful nature and has a very short attention span, so she can easily be distracted with colorful items by the others when they want her out of the way. She can be somewhat of a drama queen and does not take criticism very well. She often screams "What's that supposed to mean!?" when offended, which is very often and has become her catchphrase. Cat often says random and strange things which leaves the others, especially Jade, confused or annoyed.
Cat is also an extremely talented singer and actress, as seen in "Freak The Freak Out" where she sings a duet with Jade, and in the crossover episode "iParty with Victorious" where she shows a high vocal range. A running gag of the series is Cat often telling her friends or strangers about her brother, who seems to have many unnatural problems, all of which Cat does not seem to find strange or abnormal. She has bright red hair that she dyed to resemble her favorite snack, a red velvet cupcake. Andre's nickname for her is "Little Red", which she took offense to at first, but then called it "creative". She is occasionally seen carrying stuffed animals. Through the series, she has become ditzier and over the top, with a higher-pitched voice and more abnormal conversations.
In January 2013 in the episode "Star-Spangled Tori", Cat's parents move away to Idaho to be with her mentally ill brother at a mental institution for between six months and two years where the doctors can make sure he receives much mental relaxation and cannot escape and keep him institutionalized. Their parents wanted her to live with her and her brother's Uncle Walter and Aunt Pearl, while they are in Idaho but according to Cat, they are very strict and mean. They do not like her red hair, they only eat vegetables, they said she cannot have unlimited texting, and they will not let her flush the toilet unless it is "necessary". This caused Cat to run away and take refuge in the attic of Hollywood Arts' BlackBox theater, where her living habits were discovered by Robbie and Jade. After Jade called up Cat's parents, Cat goes to live with her grandmother – who turned out to be living in Venice, California and not Venice, Italy as Cat had initially thought – until her parents and brother return. She refers to her grandmother as "Nona".
After Victorious aired its final season, Cat becomes a co-lead character on the crossover spin-off Sam & Cat, a sitcom that began airing in 2013 and concluded in 2014. Sam and Cat become roommates when Cat's Nona (portrayed by Maree Cheatham) goes to live in Elderly Acres. Sam and Cat previously met each other in the 2011 iCarly crossover episode "iParty with Victorious", but neither of them made many contacts. In the spin-off, Sam officially meets Cat after saving her from the garbage truck. The next day, Sam and Cat set up a babysitting service to raise some extra cash after watching some kids. Sam and Cat's home is stated to be "the poshest apartment in the building".
Beck Oliver (portrayed by Avan Jogia) is Jade's boyfriend. He has been together with Jade for over two years and, unlike everyone else, is completely unafraid of her (even laughing when Andre admitted to being scared of her) and often likes to tease and make her jealous because of her reactions, which he finds amusing. Beck seems to be the only one who can calm Jade down when she becomes angry and has some control over her as seen throughout the series.
Beck is seen as soft-spoken, friendly, laid back, modest, open and caring. Although he is shown to get annoyed and even lose his temper, usually by Robbie or Trina, he is normally calm and collected. Because of his good looks and personality, he is possibly the most popular guy at Hollywood Arts and attracts almost all females and girls like Trina, sometimes even older women. He seems to be aware of the effect he has on girls, sometimes using his looks to his advantage. He and Andre are close friends. His school locker is transparent, which is his way of saying that he has no secrets, which is revealed to Tori when she was attempting to find a decorative idea for her locker. He lives in a trailer that is parked in his parents' driveway, being told if he lived with them then he would have to go by their rules, and he stated "my roof, my rules". Beck grew up in Canada before moving to Los Angeles.
It is shown in "Beck Falls For Tori" and "iParty with Victorious" that Beck has never felt true terror nor has he ever been scared by anything, a fact backed up by Jade who calls him "unscareable". He usually tries to keep peace in the group and hold everyone together. Beck breaks up with Jade in the season 3 episode "The Worst Couple" after getting tired of constantly fighting with her. In the episode "Tori Goes Platinum" Beck tries to kiss Tori, revealing that he has romantic feelings for her, but she rejects him because she viewed it as a betrayal to Jade to kiss her ex-boyfriend. In the episode, "Tori Fixes Beck and Jade", Beck tries dating a girl named Meredith, who wants to do anything he wants, causing him to realize how he prefers dating a girl who "fights back" and "has a big mouth" because it is not easy and that an easy relationship to him is "boring". This causes him to see how much he misses being with Jade and that he loves her, bringing the two back together again. Following this, their relationship is stronger and more stable.
In the Sam & Cat episode "#TheKillerTunaJump", Jade says that the two are still in a relationship. He, or another student resembling him, can be seen together with Tori or a girl resembling her in the episode "#MommaGoomer", as Sam and Cat go to Hollywood Arts in order to ask Sikowitz for help.
Trina Vega (portrayed by Daniella Monet) is Tori's older sister, who also attends Hollywood Arts. Trina's allergic reaction to a Chinese herb gargle in the pilot episode forces Tori to fill in for her in the school's big showcase, which leads to Tori being offered admission to Hollywood Arts.
Trina believes that acting and singing is her destiny, and is oblivious to her actual lack of any talent. The only reason Trina is in Hollywood Arts is that Sikowitz had a coconut-induced hallucination during Trina's audition, which turned her performance into a psychedelic extravaganza for him, and every other judge was out at the time. Trina is quite selfish and shallow most of the time, and is portrayed as being extremely difficult to deal with, sometimes even being called a "monster" in "Freak the Freak Out." However, before she was admitted to Hollywood Arts, she was depicted at her audition as a shy, sweet, nerdy girl.
Despite Trina's shallow personality, she can be concerned about her sister when she wants to be and it is shown that she does look out for Tori a lot. Later in the series, she showed some minor character growth, such as in "Locked Up!" when she tries to get Tori out of a Yerbanian prison when she was accused of "attacking" the unnamed Yerbanian Chancellor and showed genuine concern for her well being. Other examples of this are evidenced in the episodes "Tori the Zombie", "Beggin' On Your Knees", and "Tori Gets Stuck".
Trina also seems to have bad luck, as she often gets hurt. Some examples include: Falling from the ceiling, a wall falling on her, getting hit in the face with flour, and getting hit with a box of shoes.
By the final episode "Victori-yes", Trina has landed a role on a Spanish-language television show titled Divertisimo, which she boasts is "a high-quality television show with top-notch acting". She is eventually shown portraying a giant piece of cheese being tormented by children in mouse costumes.
Sinjin Van Cleef (portrayed by Michael Eric Reid) is a strange and questionable student at Hollywood Arts. He is nerdy, disturbing, and very weird, often considered stranger than even Robbie or Cat; his locker has his chewed up food on it and he also likes to collect the teeth of past presidents' relatives. He is usually used as a fake date or bribed to fake date someone, including Cat. He usually interrupts conversations with weird comments that do not make sense. He is a fan of disco music and has a huge crush on Tori and Jade, although both show more irritation than the interest in his presence. Sinjin is skilled in the background work on the school's productions and performances. He is shown to be proficient with audio, lighting, and making props, and is the apparent leader of the technical team. He is also skilled in computer science, to the point of being able to hack into a private server to delete an embarrassing picture of Jade in "The Bad Roommate". He appears in almost every episode of the series, except for "Stage Fighting"," "Cat's New Boyfriend," "Sleepover at Sikowitz's," "Locked Up!", "Tori Tortures Teacher, "Jade Gets Crushed", "Terror on Cupcake Street", "The Breakfast Bunch", "Andre's Horrible Girl", "Car, Rain and Fire" and "Driving Tori Crazy". It is revealed in "A Christmas Tori" that he has a sister named Courtney (played by Dominique Grund) who also attends Hollywood Arts.
Erwin Sikowitz (pronounced "psycho-wits") (portrayed by Eric Lange) is the hippie-like acting teacher at Hollywood Arts. His habits might be interpreted as weird and his methods are shown to be often very strange (including throwing a ball at Cat while she is performing), but at times very effective. He often walks around barefoot, which is the supposed trait of the hippies. He likes to enter the class through a window and is almost always seen drinking from coconut because, as Jade says, "the milk gives him visions". Tori gave him two dollars on her first day at Hollywood Arts, thinking he was homeless. He also gave Cat, Jade, Beck, Andre, and Robbie permission to start a fake ping-pong team to make money and have a fancy dinner. He claims to be 34 years old in "The Diddly-Bops".
He appears in "Pilot", "The Bird Scene", "Beck's Big Break", "The Great Ping Pong Scam", "Cat's New Boyfriend", "Freak The Freak Out", "Rex Dies", "The Diddly-Bops", "Sleepover at Sikowitz's", "Beck Falls for Tori", "Tori Gets Stuck", "Prom Wrecker", "Locked Up!", "iParty with Victorious", "Helen Back Again", "Tori Tortures Teacher", "Terror on Cupcake Street", "A Christmas Tori", "The Gorilla Club", "Tori & Jade's Playdate", "April Fools Blank", "How Trina Got In", "Tori Goes Platinum (parts 1-2)", "Crazy Ponnie", "Cell Block", "Robbie Sells Rex", "Star Spangled Tori" and "Victori-yes".
"Pilot" is the only episode where he is referred to as Mr. Sikowitz. In all other episodes, he is just called Sikowitz. In "Sleepover at Sikowitz's", it is revealed that he has a nephew named Jason, who went out on a date with Cat, although the results are not mentioned. His catchphrase is "Good Gandhi!" As strange as Sikowitz is, he is the favorite teacher of Tori, Cat, Jade, Beck, Andre, and Robbie, and is very open and comfortable with them, to the point he says that he is their friend in a few episodes.
Sikowitz is regularly seen drinking from a coconut (he once drank fermented coconut milk and had visions during Trina's audition). In one episode when Tori goes to him asking for help, he is hanging upside down from the ceiling, and in another, he stored his grandmother in the corner before slinging her over his shoulder and taking her to the hospital. He has an extremely strange house as revealed in "Sleepover at Sikowitz's". At the Hollywood Arts Prom, he brought a pile of tires, matches and a bottle of fuel, thinking for unknown reasons that they were going to have a bonfire of tires.
Sikowitz appeared in the Sam & Cat episode "#MommaGoomer." He is seen teaching his students about backward acting when Sam and Cat come in. Sikowitz scolds Cat for showing up very late with the class being almost over. When the bell rings, Sam and Cat tell Sikowitz that they would like to use his classroom for a charity called "The Salvation Goomers" (which was a cover-up for Goomer claiming to his mother that he is a history teacher). During Goomer's teaching of history to Sam, Cat, Dice, Goomer's mom, and the local shruggers,[clarification needed] Sikowitz comes in stating that he had gone to Charityosity.com where he found nothing about "The Salvation Goomers." After Goomer confessed to his mother that he is an MMA fighter, Sikowitz uses an electric shaver to get the fake pit hair off of Dice's armpits claiming that he grew them too soon. In the same series, Cat has a picture of a laughing Sikowitz near her bed in the room that she shares with Sam.
Lane Alexander (portrayed by Lane Napper) is the guidance counselor for Hollywood Arts. Lane is a good guidance counselor, and often helps students with their problems and resolves their arguments, but sometimes can be reluctant at times, asking students "Why Me?". He is usually the one making the big announcements at school. He appears to either hate dry skin or is obsessed with lotion (as seen in "The Wood"), as he can be seen frequently applying lotion to his hands. He has a nephew named Devon, as seen in "The Diddly-Bops". Lane is the one who made a reality television series, The Wood, leave the school because it was becoming an issue with the students and disrupting the learning environment.
He tends to be a bit extreme in his dealings such as when he issued a two-week detention to Tori for a supposed accidental hit on Jade during a stage fighting practice, made Robbie and Trina cover for Festus after accidentally injuring him, and having Tori and Jade take Festus home after unknowingly wrecking his car which was similar to one of the janitors' car.
He appears in "Pilot", "The Bird Scene", "Stage Fighting", "Tori The Zombie", "Robarazzi", "Beck's Big Break", "The Great Ping Pong Scam", "Cat's New Boyfriend", "The Diddly Bops", "The Wood", "Tori Gets Stuck", "iParty With Victorious", "Helen Back Again", "Who Did It to Trina?", "Tori Tortures Teacher", "Jade Gets Crushed", "The Worst Couple", "How Trina Got In", "Crazy Ponnie" and "One Thousand Berry Balls".
As revealed on his profile on TheSlap.com, Lane's last name is Alexander.
David and Holly Vega
David and Holly Vega (portrayed by Jim Pirri and Jennifer Carta) are the parents of Tori and Trina. David works as a police officer while Holly's job was never revealed.
They appear in "Pilot", "The Birthweek Song", "Sleepover at Sikowitz's", "Locked Up", and "Jade Gets Crushed" though their mother appeared in "Robarazzi", "A Film by Dale Squires", "Helen Back Again", "Driving Tori Crazy", "Tori Goes Platinum", "Crazy Ponnie", "Cell Block", "The Bad Roommate" and "Star Spangled-Tori", and their dad appears in "Freak the Freak Out" and "Car, Rain and Fire".
They are shown to be somewhat caring, but when their daughters get too out of control or need their help, they tend to stay out of it and go off doing something else, which is indicating that they are very unhelpful parents. They often either ignore or neglect Trina and Tori's needs. Tori and Trina usually have to take care of each other because their parents will most likely neglect their parental responsibilities. For example, in "Freak the Freak Out", Trina gets her wisdom teeth removed and their parents decide to go out of town so they would not have to take care of her, knowing she would get violent. Tori likes to point out at times that her father is a cop, usually to Sinjin, but also to others, especially if someone is annoying her. David Vega works with the LAPD and is originally from Puerto Rico.
Charlotte Harris (portrayed by Marilyn Harris) is Andre's grandmother. She is mentally unstable and often paranoid about things. She is shown to be afraid of nearly everything, including various sensible objects such as clocks and mirrors. In the episode "Wi-Fi in the Sky" she gets scared after seeing her reflection in a mirror and screams "Andre, there's another 'me' on the wall!". When she is greeted by new people, she hides behind anything she can find, while simultaneously shouting out "I don't know you!" Andre tells Tori in the "Pilot" episode that her coming to see Trina perform "Make it Shine" is the first time in six years that she has left her house. He also mentions in "Survival of the Hottest" that before she lost her mind, she used to tell him, "Andre, no matter how bad things get, you can always make it better by singing a song". She often snaps at Andre and is possibly the only way she communicates with anyone. In "Wi-Fi in the Sky," she yells at Andre for "talking to himself" when he was in reality video chatting with Tori, Cat, and Beck then freaks out and punches Andre's computer. During an interview on a video on TheSlap.com in which Andre read off her crazy text messages, her first name is revealed to be Charlotte. She has appeared in "Pilot", "Wi-Fi in the Sky", "Sleepover At Sikowitz's", "iParty With Victorious", "Driving Tori Crazy", "Tori Fixes Beck and Jade" and "The Bad Roommate".
Mrs. Lee (portrayed by Susan Chuang) is the owner of Tori's favorite Chinese restaurant Wok Star, who volunteers to pay to produce Jade's play in the episode "Wok Star". But things get complicated when Mrs. Lee makes drastic changes to the script and wants to put her daughter, Daisy, in the play.
Mrs. Lee returns in the episode "Andre's Horrible Girl", now operating a Sushi bar called Nozu after Wok Star burns down. This prompts Tori to ask if she is Chinese or Japanese, which she answers with a smack to Tori's head. She later appears in the third-season episode "How Trina Got In", making Tori and Robbie chop a pile of squid after they cannot pay their bill. After the bill was worked off, Robbie accidentally breaks some dishes, causing Mrs. Lee to have Robbie work off the damages with one of the jobs being rubbing her chef Kwakoo's feet. She also appears in the fourth-season episode "The Hambone King" where she praises Robbie's hamboning skills.
Burf (portrayed by Darsan Solomon) is a student who goes to Hollywood Arts and often hangs out with Sinjin. He is first seen in the episode "Tori & Jade's Playdate", spying on Tori and Jade for Sikowitz so they cannot escape Nozu. He then appears in "Driving Tori Crazy" when Cat offers him a bag of rags. He also appears in "The Blonde Squad", and in "Tori Goes Platinum", when he sends in a video of himself singing for a contest. He also appears in the season 4 episode "Wanko's Warehouse".
