Biography

This tween heartthrob began building up his résumé at age 8, with a string of small TV and film appearances. At 13, Bell became a budding star with his humorous antics on Nickelodeon's The Amanda Show. And in 2004, he and Amanda cohort Josh Peck earned their own comedy series, appropriately titled Drake & Josh. As the cooler stepbrother to Peck's goody-goody nerd, Bell made young viewers swoon with his hipster style and musical skills (off screen, he had his own eponymous band, which supplied the series' theme song). Although a serious car accident in December 2005 looked like it might derail Bell's career, he made a full recovery and looked remarkably healthy when he was named favorite actor at Nickelodeon's 19th Annual Kids' Choice Awards in 2006. Since the Drake & Josh series wrapped in 2007, Bell has kept busy with a TV movie featuring the titular duo, as well as appearances on the popular Nickelodeon sitcom iCarly and the Web series I <3 Vampires.
