TV Series Actress: Victoria Pratt

Victoria grew up in a small town in northern Ontario, Canada called Chesley. From an early age Victoria decided she was going to change all that and put Chesley on the map. Being a tomboy she dreamt of becoming a star the only way she knew how, through sports.

Victoria PrattThis fair-haired actress Victoria Pratt was set on quite a different career path before becoming interested in acting. She attended York University in Toronto, where she earned a degree in Kinesiology, and she went on to work in the University's Human Performance Lab, testing athletes from teams like the Toronto Maple Leafs and the San Jose Sharks. She was even offered a scholarship for the Physiotherapy master's program at the University of Toronto, but so she turned it down. She co-authored a book on fitness with one of her University professors, and worked as a professional fitness model, which is how she met Robert Kennedy, the publisher of MuscleMag. He suggested that Pratt enroll in acting classes, and soon after taking his advice, the model turned actress scored a role on the sci-fi tv series Cleopatra 2525 as Rose, otherwise known as "Sarge." She stuck with science fiction, later scoring roles on the series Mutant X and Day Break, and the female lead, opposite Rick Schroder, in the TV adaptation Journey to the Center of the Earth in 2008.

Victoria has been in talks with Fireworks Entertainment and Tribune Entertainment about their new Marvel TV series Mutant X. Both co-producing companies are very interested in Victoria for a series lead part called Shalimar Fox. In fact they have written the role with Vicky in mind. The upside is that the show has been green lit for two seasons without a pilot. There are only two catches. There is not a script yet to read and Victoria must test for the part and the testing is scheduled at the very end of pilot season. What to do? It's not really a bird in the hand, its just feathers.

Mutant X

Mutant X has great ratings and consequently more and more magazines are calling to book pictorials and cover shoots with Victoria. She is a woman who was meant to share her life with us, by being in front of the camera.
