Victoria Pedretti's Transformation From 6 To 27 Years Old

early years

Born and raised in Philadelphia, Victoria Pedretti pursued multiple artistic outlets throughout middle and high school to find the one that interested her the most.
Music was her initial interest, but when she didn’t make the cut for a school musical, she did a school play instead and found her passion for acting.

add diagnosis

Having received the diagnosis of Attention Deficit Disorder at 6 or 7 years old, Pedretti always struggled with the label and the stereotypes that come with ADD.
She confessed that it was quite “damaging” and elaborated on how such labels can often lead to generalizations about a person and affect people’s perception of them.

drama school

The “You” star, who received her BFA in Acting from Carnegie Mellon University, called her years in drama school “a dark time.”
Pedretti complained how it was rough and how some of her acting teachers negatively influenced her during her studies by saying things like she wasn’t “cut out for this.”


Right after graduating, Pedretti booked her first role in Netflix's "The Haunting of Hill House" as Eleanor "Nell" Crain, which was her first project with showrunner Mike Flanagan.
"It was really an environment that was conducive to real creativity and I'm forever grateful ... It was a really special way to start off my career," the actor told Collider.

Becoming Love

Soon after "Hill House" premiered, Pedretti was cast as Love Quinn, the romantic obsession of Joe Goldberg on the Netflix series "You."
Talking about Nell and Love, the actor confessed how "it was really bizarre" to be able to explore these similar roles "through a completely different mind."
