Victoria Dawn Justice (born February 19, 1993) is an American actress, model, dancer, and singer. She is best known for her roles as Lola Martinez on Zoey 101, Rebecca on The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, Tori Vega on Victorious & Shelby Marx on iCarly. Victoria and Ariana are good friends, as they both co-starred on the Nickelodeon TV show, Victorious.  An odd thing about Victoria that she stated in an interview was that every time she visits Universal City walk, she must run through the fountain there as a sort of tradition. Her best friend is co-star Avan Jogia who played Beck Oliver in Victorious. The pairing name of the two girls is often called "Variana" (Victoria and Ariana) by fans for short.
