Nothing happened to Victoria — she's been keeping busy!

In January 2020, Victoria started filming the movie Push opposite Shadowhunters stars Matthew Daddario and Katherine McNamara and Katy Keene actor Lucien Laviscount. 

According to a press release, Push is a “suspenseful, twisty and fun independent feature film” that “follows gallery owner Brooke (Victoria), whose marriage to Owen (Matthew), a heartthrob local newscaster, seems perfect from the outside but there are visible cracks at the seams.”

Victoria said she wanted in on the project as soon as she read the script. 

"Push is a modern take on relationships and fidelity which is something mostly everyone can relate to,” she added. “It definitely will get conversations started about when does cheating become cheating? Does it start with the intention or does it begin with the act? Very grateful to be working with this talented cast and crew on this exciting project.”

Victoria was also starring in Quibi's '50 States of Fright.'

In October 2020, Victoria appeared in 50 States of Fright, a Quibi horror anthology “featuring the scariest stories from every state in the country,” with Evil Dead director Sam Raimi on board as executive producer.

According to The Wrap, Victoria will play a social butterfly who experiences “the biggest party foul of them all” by dying during her birthday week. 

To her surprise, however, she’s “given a second chance to right her wrongs on Earth by reconnecting with loved ones, and most importantly, prove that she’s worthy enough to get into the big VIP room in the sky.”

Aside from her upcoming projects, Victoria is also the proud dog mama of her tiny pups Sammy and Sophie, who are regulars on her Instagram page.  

"Walkin’ the doggos. (Yes I’m in my pajamas)" she captioned a sweet photo of the trio.  

As for Victoria and her Victorious buddies, the cast reunited earlier this year on Zoom where fans got to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the show alongside Victoria, Ariana Grande, Elizabeth Gillies, Avan Jogia, and Matt Bennett (among others). 

"This made me happy. 10 years later. Can’t even believe it," Victoria wrote at the time. "Thank you so much to all the fans who continue to love and support our show. Makes me real happy to see that it’s still enjoyed by so many of you."
