Liz Gillies has definitely come a long way from doing local broadway shows. In fact, she’s now living the dream: starred in one of the most popular Nickelodeon series, performed alongside the biggest names in the music industry, and released chart-topping hits that nobody can resist.
But beneath all of the fame and fortune is a girl who’s just like you and me. So if you’d like to know more about Elizabeth Gillies, stay tuned!
How Old is Elizabeth Gillies?
Elizabeth Egan Gillies will be turning 29-years-old this coming July 26. Feels like it was just yesterday when we first saw her as Jade in Victorious!
As Liz inches nearer into her 30s, let us take a moment to look back at everything she has accomplished throughout her career:
- At age 15, Gillies had her big break in the broadway scene by playing the character Lucy in the play called 13.
- At age 17, Liz landed a role in the Nickelodeon TV show called Victorious. Her role as Jade West in the show would later become her ticket to stardom.
- At age 18, she appeared as a guest star in Big Time Rush. It was then that rumors about her and BTR band member James Maslow being in a relationship started spreading.
How Tall is Liz Gillies?
As listed on several sources, Liz Gillies appears to be 5ft and 7in tall, or 170cm. However, this has been heavily disputed by very observant fans.
According to them, the height number is too generous and that Liz is actually a few inches shorter than that. Some say that she’s 5ft6, while others say she’s around 5ft5 tall.
The proof that seems to be thrown around frequently in this debacle is the comparison between Liz Gillies and Victorious star Victoria Justice’s height.
For reference, Victoria is only 5ft4 or 162cm in height. If Liz is truly 5ft7, she should easily tower over Victoria with a few inches to spare. But, some fans claim that this is simply not the case, as Liz is barely two inches taller than Victoria.
Who is Elizabeth Gillies’ Husband?
Liz Gillies’ marital relationship has been quite controversial, to say the least. First, nobody even knew that she was in a relationship until the announcement of her marriage to Michael Corcoran.
Second, the age gap between her and Michael is 21 years. And third, the circumstances regarding how the pair met has been deeply problematic to some people.
Michael Corcoran is an American record producer and composer who often goes by the names Backhouse Mike or Ken Lofkoll. He is the mastermind behind all those catchy songs played for the biggest Nickelodeon shows such as:
- Drake & Josh
Liz and Mike met on the set of Victorious. During that time, Mike was already 36 years old while Liz was just 16. Now, let’s address the elephant in the room: did Mike groom Elizabeth even when he knew that she was just a minor?
According to Vogue during an exclusive interview with Liz, things weren’t romantic between the two of them until a few years later.
In fact, they started dating in 2014, when Liz was already 21 years old. But as for whether or not she had feelings for him way before that, she gave this interesting revelation:
“I always had a crush on him, but I played it cool.”
Who are Liz Gillies’ Parents and Siblings?
Elizabeth has been able to maintain a close relationship with her family. Her parents, Lorrie and Dave Gillies, have likewise been very supportive to their superstar daughter since day one – so much so that Liz feels very comfortable in getting them involved with her love life:
“I literally left my parents with my boyfriend and they had their own private vacation without me to get acquainted… It went great, it was fine. They just came back out again, so…”
Meanwhile, Liz also has a younger brother named George, and she doesn’t seem to have a problem with showing off his little bro to the world. When George graduated high school, Liz posted a very heartfelt message to congratulate him via Instagram.
