Biography:

Born in Calgary, Alberta Canada, Victor was always willing to push himself to the limit. He thrives on the rush of combat sports, race car driving and high speed skiing. As a teenager, he frequently found himself in trouble in school because of his bad boy behavior. Martial arts proved to be the perfect outlet to redirect his aggressive energy. He spent many years teaching and competing, achieving an undefeated record in the heavy weight Black Belt division, as well an undefeated record as an amateur kickboxer.

Immediately upon moving to Los Angeles Victor's acting career kicked in to high gear. One of his first acting roles was a recurring role on the Spelling daytime drama, "Sunset Beach" (1997). Shortly thereafter, Victor found himself auditioning for "Days of Our Lives" (1965), where he was chosen from hundreds of men to portray the loveable troublemaker Nicholas Alamain. This led the number one entertainment show in the world, "Entertainment Tonight", to do a "day in the life of" piece on Victor. It was unprecedented for ET to do this before a new daytime actor had even aired. Webster then ventured into the feature film arena with starring roles in Wishmaster 4: The Prophecy Fulfilled (2002) (V) and Gangland (2000). He also starred in the highly publicized television movie of the week, _Chippendale Murders, The (2000) (TV)_ and has made several guest-starring roles on various television series.

Victor can currently be seen starring in the Fireworks/Tribune nationally syndicated #1 smash hit series, "Mutant X" (2001), soon to begin production on its third season. Victor portrays Brennan Mulwray, a tough street-wise rebel and former thief who can fire bolts of electricity as accurately as bullets and produce enough electrical current to power a small city.

In addition to his starring role on "Mutant X", Victor can currently be seen in a co-starring role opposite Steve Martin and Queen Latifah in the Disney romantic comedy, Bringing Down the House (2003), directed by Adam Shankman. In the feature Victor portrays the new love interest of Steve Martin's ex-wife, played by actress Jean Smart. In addition to Victor's film and television career, he has been named by People Magazine as one of the "50 Most Eligible Bachelors", putting Victor in the same company as super-stars Justin Timberlake and George Clooney.

Victor's other television credits include a starring role (as Victor Mansfield) in the Emmy Award winning AMC Network series, "Lot, The" (1999), which followed life at a Hollywood movie studio during the late 1930s, and is currently re-airing on the network.

In between projects, Victor spends his free time reading books on spirituality, engaging in a wide variety of sports, as well as delving into the world of directing and writing. Victor also participates in many charities involving The Special Olympics, The Ark Trust (an animal rights organization), abused women and children.
