Artist Spotlight: Catching Up with the Fabulous Victoria Lord

image

Wardrobe Professor sat down with Toronto’s own Victoria Lord to talk acting, life and upcoming projects after her move to the Big Apple. Victoria has been in New York City for just over a year and has completely taken the city by storm. Studying at the prestigious Michael Howard Acting Studios for the past year, she has further developed her craft as an actress and become a consistent force in the industry. With work coming down the pipeline, including starring in an Off-Broadway show this summer, working on international projects and a new TV series, Victoria is not only as hot as ever but on a steady climb. Still as stylish as ever, Wardrobe Professor wanted to get a glimpse into Victoria’s life and find out the secrets to her success (if she’s willing to reveal them)!

How was your initial move to the big city? Were you scared?

Thank you so much for having me! Yes, I must admit the move was a little daunting but I was excited. I had lived and acted in Toronto all of my life and it was time for a change.  Also New York is New York and has something for everyone. I’ve been visiting here for years so the transition wasn’t as bad as it is for some. 

So it the right move for your career ?

Absolutely. There is so much opportunity it’s sometimes overwhelming! While Toronto has a flourishing film and theatre community and will only continue to grow, New York is on another tier. It was time for me to take that step and dive into the industry here. Constant access to the best professionals is undeniably the best thing for anyone’s career and I’ve taken advantage of that here in every way possible. 

You recently worked with Emmy-award winner Brett Goldstein playing Irene Molloy in Thorton Wilder’s “The Matchmaker”? How was that experience?

It was such an incredible experience to work with Brett Goldstein. Even just meeting him was such a privilege, but to actually work with him was unbelievable. It was remarkable to see how he perceived my role in the play and work with the cast to create a truly unforgettable production. My character, Irene Molloy, has such a dynamic role with so many fun things constantly happening to her on the stage. It was one of my favorite roles I’ve played in a long time; I had a lot of fun with her.

You’ve been acting since you were 7 years old. Did you always know this was what you were going to do?

I always knew it. From the time I saw my first Broadway production in Toronto, Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat, I knew I had to be either on the stage or in movies. At that time of course I didn’t have much say over what I did, as I was only 7! But I begged my mom to put me in a choir, musical theatre, anything to perform.  However, it was my personal taste of the stage, when I played Yum Yum in The Mikado that confirmed I was going to be an actress forever. I didn’t stop after that and have been so fortunate for my path so far. In an industry as volatile in this one, you need to always have one foot grounded reminding you that it can all be taken from you in a second. Actors have to constantly go by the motto, “Work, work work!” which is truly something I live by every day.

Tell our audience what we can see you in next!

I’m very excited about this summer because the projects I have lined up are so different and are really going to challenge me. I am all about variety; I can never sit still with the same thing. I think that is why I was so heavily drawn towards acting – because it’s always something new, always something different! I am playing the lead in Holiday in Heaven, an Off-Broadway musical production in August that is super new age and has wicked music. We are starting rehearsals now which is very exciting! I’m also playing a principle character in an international animated series that is coming to the USA that I would love to gush about but can’t give much away! I am also continuing my role as Alexandra Marie Bates in the TV series ENVY. This role will most likely be the most challenging as I am playing a seductress with some deep rooted emotional issues, but I am prepared to take it on and can’t wait!

It’s safe to say Victoria Lord is killing it in the big city, but we can’t forget why Wardrobe Professor wanted to feature her to begin with – her style is top notch! Check out some photos here that go a long way in describing Victoria’s chic urban trends that in no matter what city, catches the eye!

School Supplies: TOMTOM jewelry
TOMTOM is an L.A. based jewelry line that was launched by Elena Coleman Howell in 2009. Elena has had 5 collections and her pieces have been featured on the bods of celebrities such at Nicki Minaj and Paris Hilton to name a few. Her geometric statement pieces are reminiscent of Pamela love but don’t look like a petting zoo. I adore her bracelets and rings for staking but my wet dreams seem to always feature the PUNK FLEURETTE NECKLACE. Check out the rest her stuff here. It’ll be evident from the rest of her jewelry that this mega babe holds a master of architecture (oh, and not to mention a bachelor of arts in English from UC Berkeley.) Successful, pretty and smart - I’m not jealous at all.
