Do I look good, my dear? Victoria Justice exclusively dished to Life & Style that she is here for a Zoey 101 reboot following a fun reunion she had with her castmates — minus Jamie Lynn Spears — on July 29. The actress played Lola Martinez on the Nickelodeon show, which ran from 2005 to 2008.
The 26-year-old Eye Candy star noted that “no one has approached me about a Zoey 101 reboot,” but she gave a resounding “Yeah!” when asked if she’d be interested in revamping the famed teen show. There were rumors circulating in July that Jamie Lynn was in talks about reprising her role 10 years later. Hmmm … it looks like the ball could be rolling.
“It was a lot of fun. It was great getting back together,” Victoria added about their mini-reunion while discussing her partnership with Mars, Inc. to promote its #PledgeforPlanet initiative, which aims to accelerate climate action. “It really just brought back old times and so many great memories. I just remember sitting there and looking at everyone’s faces and just feeling like no one had really changed. Like, things had obviously changed but we were still like at our core the same people and it just felt so comfortable and so familiar, so that was a really nice feeling. It was really fun.” The starlet noted that Jamie Lynn didn’t attend because she was “filming in Atlanta.”
Despite most of the castmates being spread all over the country, the Victorious actress acknowledged that she has “stayed in touch with everyone.” She explained, “Erin Sanders, who played Quinn on the show, we were really close when we were doing the show and she’s also in L.A. She’s now a yoga instructor and I’ve taken classes from her. So, we definitely reconnected.”
All in all, Victoria has a soft spot in her heart for the great memories they all made on set. “They’re all great, though. I feel really lucky to have had that experience in my life and to form those friendships. It was just a really special time in my life that I’ll always remember and I’ll always be grateful for,” she gushed.
We’ll keep our fingers crossed for that reboot!
