Stunning Tales About Nickelodeon’s Darkish Aspect in Quiet on Set

Drake Bell Describes How Brian Peck Acquired Him Alone

Bell described Peck purposely driving a wedge between him and his supervisor father Joe Bell (who additionally seems within the ID sequence and backs up his son’s account) in order that he might spend extra time with the teenager, who had a recurring position on The Amanda Present earlier than he was provided his personal sitcom, Drake & Josh, in 2004.

Peck would take him to auditions, Bell mentioned, and then have him sleep over, saying it was too late to drive him again residence. One evening, Bell described, he wakened on the sofa (the place he mentioned he at all times slept) and Peck was sexually assaulting him.

“I froze and was in full shock and had no thought what to do or the right way to react,” Bell mentioned, “and I had no thought the right way to get out of the scenario.”

He recalled Peck being apologetic, however the abuse did not cease—and Bell mentioned he did not inform anybody, not even when the mother of his then-girlfriend realized one thing was fallacious and took him to a therapist. He admittedly believed that if he mentioned something, his profession could be over. 

Finally, he mentioned he “exploded” and instructed his mom every little thing, and he or she instantly known as police. Bell mentioned that detectives made him give an “excruciatingly detailed” account of the abuse after which had him name Peck to immediate a confession over the cellphone whereas they listened in. Peck “simply began a full-on confession,” Bell mentioned, and was subsequently arrested on Aug. 20, 2003.
