Birthplace: Chesley, Ontario, Canada
Victoria Ainslie Pratt (born December 18, 1970) is a Canadian actress, author, and fitness model.
Pratt grew up in Chesley, Ontario, a self described "tomboy at heart." She attended the Kinesiology program at York University in Toronto and graduated summa cum laude. Before starting her acting career, Pratt made a notable mark in the fitness world as a performance tester, working at the York University campus with various athletes including players from the Toronto Maple Leafs and San Jose Sharks, among others.
After graduating from York, Pratt met Robert Kennedy (publisher of MuscleMag) who convinced Pratt to try her hand at modelling and acting. Pratt quickly found success as a fitness model, gracing several magazine covers (including Muscle Mag and Oxygen) and working alongside future WWE stars Trish Stratus and Torrie Wilson.
Pratt eventually began to land high-profile acting roles in TV throughout the late 90s, including Xena: Warrior Princess, Once a Thief, Cleopatra 2525, and Mutant X (which she starred in for 3 seasons).
Pratt made her film debut in the 1998 film titled Legacy, alongside David Hasselhoff, directed by her eventual husband, T.J. Scott. Pratt also starred in several independent or small made-for-TV movies during the 90s and early 2000s.
Pratt has since garnered a small cult following who recognize her large body of work as an actress in cancelled, but popular low-budget science-fiction productions. There are several Tumblr fan pages and websites dedicated to Pratt. AskMen called her a "butt-kicking sci-fi queen."
Since the mid 2000s, Pratt has guest-starred on several hit TV programs including CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (2009), NCIS (2010), Lie to Me (2011) and Castle (2013). In 2006, Pratt co-starred with model Josie Moran in the film The Mallory Effect (2006) which premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival. The same year Pratt starred with Taye Diggs on the ABC television series Day Break (2006), which premiered on November 15, 2006.
Pratt has continued modelling throughout her career, recently being named Oxygen Magazine's 'Cover Girl' in 2011. As of October 2015, she is a published author of adult fiction, her first book being "Double Down".
Pratt married award-winning director and photographer T.J. Scott in 2000; they divorced in 2016.
She divides her time between Toronto, Los Angeles and New Zealand. Pratt has a blue belt in Shotokan karate and is a keen kickboxer.
In her interview with Oxygen Magazine, Pratt said she enjoys "salsa dancing, hiking in the Hollywood hills and volleyball."
