Elegant, worldly, and alluring, Victoria Summer has been turning heads in Hollywood over the last few years with her timeless look and undeniable talent. Victoria has appeared as the iconic 'Julie Andrews' in Walt Disney's Saving Mr Banks opposite Tom Hanks and shortly after won a supporting role in Paramount Pictures' Transformers: Age of Extinction (Mark Wahlberg/Stanley Tucci/Kelsey Grammer/Michael Bay). Next up Victoria played the lead role of British nurse 'Eleanor' in Game of Aces (Chris Klein/Werner Daehn). Victoria is currently filming a period drama in Spain and Italy which she will be announcing soon.
Born in Reading, Berkshire and raised in the small town of Wokingham, Berkshire, Victoria was involved in the arts from the young age of two, dancing and performing in pantomimes and singing in her church choir. She lived in the English countryside until she was a teenager, participating in local theatre productions, including starring as 'Nancy' in the musical Oliver and 'Trixie' in Daisy Pulls It Off. She was also a hard worker, holding various odd jobs around town, including washing hair at the local salon and working at a gym. Every dime she made went back into perfecting her craft; paying for her singing and dancing lessons.
Victoria landed a scholarship to train at the Arts Educational Schools in Chiswick, West London. She remained there for three years to obtain an honors degree in Dance and Musical Theatre. In her last year of school she landed her first official job in the arts at the prestigious Almeida Theatre in London, as the understudy of the lead role in their first ever musical: Brighton Rock (directed by Michael Attenborough). For several years she worked in the musical theatre world in London, before deciding to pursue a film and television career in Los Angeles.
When Victoria arrived in Los Angeles in 2012, she had two suitcases with all of her belongings inside, and knew one person. A self-proclaimed adventurer and workaholic, she was passionate and dedicated to pursuing her dream of being an actress. With not much money in her pocket, she found a nanny gig and started personal training on the side to make ends meet, while navigating the world of auditioning in LA. Luckily, she landed her first theatrical audition, starring as 'Kristina' in the indie musical How Sweet It Is opposite Erika Christensen. Next up, her indie bookings continued appearing as 'Polina' in the sci-fi film Ratpocalypse opposite Casper Van Dien. After learning the ropes on a few indies, Victoria made the jump to the big leagues.
Recently Victoria has created a successful new website & TV show, which she is really excited about. The show shines the spotlight on up-and-coming young talent and is called ‘Next Generation Role Model’ and interviews visionaries and influencers. A few years ago, she was also asked to be an ambassador for Teen Cancer America by Roger Daltrey which she continues to strongly support and raise money for. She also created a special afternoon tea event for them called ‘Tea With Victoria Summer’ that kicked off in Los Angeles at the British Consulate.
When not working Victoria loves to hike and do yoga, she enjoys a plant based diet and has a huge passion for rescuing animals. She is a fan of fast cars and enjoys racing as a hobby. Her favourite sport is basketball; you can often catch her at the Clippers games. Victoria currently resides in Los Angeles with her rescue Pomeranian Bentley.
