  • Quotes

    • (speaking of the costumes on Cleopatra 2525)
      Victoria: We are three strong women taking on enemies of the future. I don't think I could fight 20 mutants in chinos and button-down shirt. I have to be in my rubber pants.

    • Victoria Pratt: Cast changes are a hard thing. For two years, we had this little family. We weren't together when these changes were decided upon. It all happened during our hiatus.

    • (Speaking of Mutant X)
      Victoria Pratt: I hate hearing about actors who don't like the show. There are so many actors out there who'd give their right arm for what I'm getting to do.

    • Victoria Pratt: I would be very happy doing movies. I love to work and I think I'm a little different.

    • (Speaking of the After 9/11)
      Victoria: We stopped shooting for a couple of days and then tried to get back on track..

    • Reporter: If you had to live the rest of your life on a stranded island and you could bring 3 things with you, what would you bring?
      Victoria Pratt: I'd take tequila, lime and a tiny umbrella.

    • Victoria Pratt: It's part of the job to compensate for outfit.

    • Victoria Pratt: I remember looking up to Lindsay Wagner, the Bionic Woman, and Linda Hamilton in Terminator 2, and thinking that's what women should look like.

    • Victoria Pratt: Acting isn't the be-all end-all. There are a lot of other things in my life that will bring me joy if I didn't act anymore

    • Victoria Pratt: Linda Hamilton is my hero. She was so tough and so strong and so vulnerable at the same time. I think that's what woman action figures are allowed to be: vulnerable, in a way that women are.

    • Reporter: So what's the deal with you and oyster bars? I heard to want to open one
      Victoria Pratt: Yes, I definately want to do an oyster bar. It's because I worked in a fantastic oyster bar when I was in university and I moved out to LA and there just isn't one here, not with the same kind of vibe.

    • Victoria : I've been exercising all my life... I was a long sprinter. The ones that hurt!

    Let's deal with the obvious first, she's stunningly beautiful, there's no denying it. She's also really intelligent, she went to uni a year ahead and graduated 'cum laude'. She can also act, she's one of those people you hear about often on TV, stunning, intelligent and talented.



    I really liked her in Mutant X, for a number of reasons, I've also seen her in a couple of films and now she's in something called Day Break.



    I've found one problem with her which I don't really have any feelings over but I know there are those out there who do have a problem with it. When asked about her new show and whether it was Sci-Fi she said that it wasn't. There are hundreds out there who believe that Day Break is Sci-Fi, and they seem to have a valid reason, and that she's only saying it because it's considered not cool to be doing Sci-Fi. IF it is Sci-Fi then no one should ever feel ashamed to admit it. I watch Sci-Fi, along with a whole lot of other genres. Many programmes today are actually a combination of genres all rolled into one.



    I've gone a little off topic! Victoria Pratt is beautiful, talented and intelligent. Nothing else can said apart from watch anything with her in it, because there is nothing relse that hasn't been summed up in those three words. Apart from she seems nice!moreless
