You may know Dan Benson as Zeke from The Wizards of Waverly Place – but you might not know that he is now also an OnlyFans star.
Although his career in the adult entertainment industry surprised many Disney Channel fans, Dan says it’s been a long time coming.
Dan says it all goes back to his time on the show when he would receive messages from beautiful women, and during their conversations, they would ask him for suggestive photos.
Dan says he ended up sending several pictures of naked women – but they weren’t who they claimed to be.
“Turns out messaging these women, who turned out not to be who they claimed to be, wasn’t the best idea, because I was sending them nude photos, and they were taking these nude photos. and then post them to online websites,” Dan explained.
Soon Dan’s personal photos were “all over the web”, and he spent years trying to get them removed from different sites.
The whole thing was a “pretty traumatic experience,” and he ended up getting fired from a job because of it.
“Obviously I didn’t want them there. But, as you can imagine, it was quite a difficult task,” Dan said. “I ended up losing my job later in life because of it, after I kind of retired from acting.”
After years of struggling with the “very significant and negative” impact it had on his life, Dan decided he wasn’t going to let it control him – and he was going to lean into it.
“I’ve decided to stop fighting this and instead go the other way and completely lean into it and make a page instead of letting these people sell my privacy,” he said. he shared.
Since joining OnlyFans last year, Dan has had a lot of success and “a lot of fun”.
“I’ve met a lot of really great people in the adult entertainment industry, and it’s changed my life for the better,” Dan concluded.
It’s nice to hear that Dan has made something good out of a negative experience!
