She is best known for her role as Lucy in 13 and Jade West in Victorious., Gigi Rock in Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll and Fallon Carrington in Dynasty. 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].

Background

Liz was born in Haworth, New Jersey (NJ) and her family resides there. She participated in local community theater productions,Bergen County church choir[3], and took voice lessons at her school.

Career

2007-end of 2008

Elizabeth started her career by appearing in commercials for bubblegum and cellphones. She got roles in The Black Donnellys and Locker 514 which really jump-started her career. She was cast in The Clique and Harold as a supporting character in both. In summer 2008, she was cast as Lucy in a Goodspeed production of Jason Robert Brown's new musical about growing up, 13. Later that year, 13 moved to Broadway, which made it the first Broadway production to have an all teen cast. She receives the two big numbers "Opportunity" and "It Can't Be True" along with smaller parts in other songs, such as the title song, "Hey Kendra" and "Getting Ready".

2009-Present

On January 4, 2009, 13 closed down on Broadway. Liz starred in Nickelodeon's Victorious, in which she plays Jade West, the antagonist to Victoria Justice's character, Tori Vega. Victorious unfortunately ended abruptly in its Fourth Season.

It has been confirmed by both her (via Twitter) and the network that she has just finished filming an upcoming episode of White Collar where she plays a teenage private school student whose father is suspected of embezzlement.

Elizabeth is also featured in Deleasa's music video for "Time In A Day"; her character is the vocalist's girlfriend.

She will appear on "The Exes" episode "Prelude to a Kiss".[4] She'll also appear as the character "Mandy" in a new Thriller movie "Animal".[5] Recently, Broadway.com stated that Liz starred in a reading of Jawbreaker: The Musical from September 26 through 27 2013.[6]

Liz reprised her role as Jade West in one episode in the the poorly constructed spin-off Sam and Cat.[7]In the episode "The Killer Tuna Jump", her character Jade became best friends with Sam Puckett.

Liz recently acted in two films, Animal, Killing Daddy and Vaction.[8][9]

Gillies recently starred opposite Denis Leary in two seasons of “Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll.” The series lasted two seasons across 2015-2016 and was cancelled after.

In The CW’s new drama "Dynasty", starting 2017, Elizabeth Gillies portrays Fallon Carrington, the gorgeous, ambitious daughter of billionaire Blake Carrington, who is determined to make a name for herself...at any cost.
