Victoria Pedretti tried out for a very different character in You on Netflix, before being given the role of Love Quinn.

Joe Goldberg’s (Penn Badgley) terrifyingly charming wife Love Quinn is played by sensational actress Victoria Pedretti in You, after fans first got to know the character in season two.

We can’t imagine a different actor in the role, but Victoria recently confessed she originally auditioned for another part in the hit Netflix series.

Speaking to Byrdie, the 26-year-old revealed she first tried for the part of Beck, Joe’s obsession in season one when he was living in New York.

She explained: "I auditioned for Beck during my first time in LA while I was showcasing with my university.

“I got pretty far in the audition process. It was the furthest I had ever gotten in an audition process."

The part eventually went to Elizabeth Lail, but Victoria was cast instead as Nell in The Haunting of Hill House.

The equally creepy role however led to her playing Love.

She continued: "I was reached out to by Greg Berlanti and Sera Gamble about You because of the work they saw me do on Hill House.

"I haven't even talked to them about whether or not they remember me auditioning for Beck, to be honest.

“But we started having conversations about the show. I was able to meet with Penn Badgley, and the rest is history."
