‘Eye Candy’: Victoria Justice Takes Down A Serial Killer
Victoria Justice is fighting for justice. And she better watch out because there’s a psycho serial killer involved.
“My character Lindy is a computer hacker,” the actress told HollywoodLife.com exclusively on the set of Eye Candy in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. “She has gone through a lot in her life and has dealt with a major tragedy that you’ll see in the first episode, so I don’t want to give too much away, [but] I think that’s really affected her.”
Victoria’s character has a dark past, but her future is even bleaker. (As the first promo for the thriller says, “you’re already dead.”) Still, Lindy (Victoria) is set on finding this guy, no matter how scary the situation may be. And yes, she told us it gets pretty scary — think dead bodies and lots of blood.
“She uses her incredible hacking skills to help other people,” Victoria explains. “She is a very determined person and has a very big heart as well. But, she also has a lot weighing on her mind.”
Yep, we’d say so.
“On the show I have a serial killer who ends up targeting me and is obsessed with me! And so throughout this whole process I’m doing whatever it takes to catch this person and serve him justice! Lindy-style justice!”
