Ex Disney star on how he 'tripped and fell' from Wizards of Waverly Place to X-rated OnlyFans

"It's changed my life for the better."

Remember Zeke from Disney Channel’s ‘Wizards of Waverly Place’? Well, his name is actually Dan Benson and he had a major X-rated career switch and is openly talking about how he “tripped and fell” into the adult industry.

The 35-year-old is now a wiz at OnlyFans and explained in a recent TikTok what made him join the paid subscription website.

"Basically, when I was on the show Wizards of Waverly Place, I would get messages from people all the time, some of those being women that I found incredibly attractive," Dan explained.

Unfortunately for the actor, he continued: "Turns out, messaging those women, who turned out not to be who they said they were, was not the best idea, because I would send nude photos to them and they would take those nude photos and then post them onto online websites."

Those photos ended up "all over the web” and it all became a "pretty traumatic” experience for the former Disney star. 

Although Dan tried to get all of the photos erased the task became almost impossible. 

"Obviously, I did not want them out there," he continued in the TikTok. "But, as you can imagine, that was a pretty difficult task. I ended up almost losing my job later in life because of that after I kind of retired from acting."

However it wasn’t the end for Dan, actually, some may call it just the beginning as he eventually choose to go with the flow.

He shared "I decided to stop fighting against it and instead, go the other direction and completely lean into it.

He started sharing his own pics "And build out a page instead of letting these people sell [his] privacy.”

Dan loves his new career and says he has had positive experiences from this new journey that started a year ago.

"I've been having a tremendous amount of fun," he continued. "I've met a lot of really great people in the adult entertainment industry and it's changed my life for the better."
