Who is Avan Jogia, Miley's Cozy Club Pal?

Birthday girl Miley Cyrus was recently spotted locked in a steamy embrace with rumored boyfriend Avan Jogia, but not much is known about Miley's new possible squeeze.

So, who is Avan? Celebuzz put together a comprehensive guide to the rising teen star in order to help Miley fans learn more about her alleged new beau.

What is Avan's claim to fame? Originally from Vancouver, British Columbia in Canada, Avan got his first break in 2006 when he played Danny Araujo in A Girl Like Me: The Gwen Araujo Story. He hit the big time when he signed on for Nickelodeon's hit show, Victorious earlier this year to play hot bad boy Beck.

Check out Avan in Victorious below.

What's up with that name? Avan Tudor Jogia is of Indian and English decent, but his first name is actually Persian in origin. Avan means "waters" and might explain the actor's big, watery eyes. As for Avan's middle name, Tudor, his parents are probably just big fans of the British monarchy.

What are his interests? Judging by his Tumblr and Twitter accounts, Avan is a big fan of rock music, subtly bashing hipsters, eating burgers and James Franco's performance in 127 Hours.

Who are his friends? Avan is very close (don't worry, not in a romantic way) to his Victorious co-star, Victoria Justice.

Check out Victoria and Avan having a friendly staring competition below.

Is he right for Miley? Well, the two do share a lot of interests, even if they are a modern day TV-version of Romeo and Juliet (Avan is a Nickelodeon kid while Miley is a former Disney Channel star). Plus, they are now the same age (18) and both know how hard it is to be a teen star in Hollywood. Oh, and he is also pretty darn hot, so that doesn't hurt his chances of getting along with Miley.

Do you think Avan and Miley will work out? Share your thoughts in the comments.

    Technically I think this a good program to teach some of the ignorant people in this world that gay bullying should not be tolerated on any level. I also think that having someone who is visible in the media and pop-culture is a good role model. However, due to the sensitive nature of young gay people’s emotions, it is sometimes polarizing when a popular star publicly declares “I’m straight”. Why can’t Cory Monteith, regardless of his sexual orientation, just say he doesn’t condone bullying on any level. Why must Cory Monteith publicly declare his “straightness” when it comes to gay bullying. What does his sexual orientaion have to do with teaching tolerance? How many celebrities have we had that feel the need to tell the world, due to career goals and a homophobic society, that they are “straight”, only later on, when they need a boost or a headline, reveal the real truth about their sexual orienation. Cory Monteith has done alot to help the LGBTQ community since his rise to fame. The best thing he can do to really make a difference is to come out as a proud, respectful, caring homosexual man who cares about who he really is and not who his delusional fan-base of teenaged girls what him to be. Just do it Cory. We’ll all still love you for who you really are….. a great role-model who happens to be a terrific entertainer.

    she definitely does not deserve him... she's raunchy and been around. He's got so much ahead in his career and shouldn't be settling for that.
