She is best known for her role as Lucy in the musical 13 and Jade West in the Nickelodeon sictom Victorious. In 13, she was described as "strong-voiced" and "[as the] rather too convincing as the precocious mean girl" by reporter Elysa Gardner. [1]. Dan Kois of New York Magazine described her as a "mini-diva" in 13.[2]. In a separate interview, Liz said that she is "really goofy" and that she "makes up characters" who she might pretend to be while conversing with someone. She also remarked that she is "very weird". Co-actress and best friend Ariana Joan Grande-Butera[3][4] also noted that Liz loves photography and is always taking photographs of herself and everyone on the set.
