From Amanda Bynes to Drake Bell, look back at your favorite Nickelodeon stars and find out what they are up to now.
Nickelodeon television shows have a special place in the hearts of millennials and some older Gen Zers. Many can still recite all the lyrics to the Victorious, iCarly, and Zoey 101 theme songs and rehash love triangles and drama between their favorite characters. As scary as it may be for those who grew up watching Amanda Bynes crack a joke on The Amanda Show or Drake Bell and Josh Peck get into something ridiculous on All That, many of these childhood stars are well into their 30s and have children of their own. Some have retreated from the limelight, while others are grinding hard in the entertainment industry.
Seen above, Ariana Grande flourished into one of modern pop music’s biggest icons. After she played the sweet and often oblivious Cat Valentine on ‘Victorious’ and then Sam & Cat, which starred Jennette McCurdy, Ariana burst into pop stardom with her 2013 hit, The Way, which featured the late Mac Miller. Now, she’s a Grammy Award-winning artist with multiple successful albums and arena tours under her belt. In 2021, she was announced as Glinda in the highly anticipated ‘Wicked’ movie, which is currently filming.
