American actor Drake Bell starred in "walk-through" series for a long time, until he was lucky enough to star in the project "Drake and Josh", which aired on Nickelodeon in the mid-2000s. Inspired by his success, the actor took up music and became a renowned musician.
Drake Bell was born in 1986 in Santa Anna, California. He had a very interesting family: his stepfather and mother, who played billiards professionally.
From childhood, the boy gravitated towards various shows: he often left home to listen to the performance of street musicians. And his parents tried to enroll him in various sports sections, but everything was useless - he was not interested in sports.
But he perfectly parodied those around him and exactly copied the behavior of the TV presenters. Those close to him had to come to terms - they took him to the casting of commercials. The lively and active boy charmed the commission, and they took him to the project. So already at the age of five, Drake played his first roles in advertising and in episodes of several TV series.
Drake's debut as an actor took place quite early: at the age of ten, he played the role of Jesse Remo in the film "Jerry Maguire". A little later, he had the same small roles in the TV series "Disappearance", "Seinfeld", "Scoundrels", "Pretenders" and others.
In the early 2000s, Bell was invited to the famous Amanda Show, and it was there that the creators of the Drake and Josh project saw him. Josh Peck became his co-star on the show, and after filming he became Drake's best friend.
The series "Drake and Josh" made the actor a real celebrity, which was expressed in great attention from the audience and in new invitations to interesting roles.
Another significant work in the actor's portfolio is his role in the show "Zoe 101", in which he starred for many years, and won the Nickelodeon Channel Award for Favorite Television Actor for three years in a row.
In 2005, Bell starred in a small role in the comedy Yours, Mine and Ours, and it was a happy time of hectic filming surrounded by a lot of people. However, the best part was that the film was very fond of the audience and was shown in many countries.
Gradually, Drake's popularity grew, and in 2007 he was invited to the lead role in the film "College". The actor was then already twenty-one years old, but he looked barely seventeen, so he was quite suitable for the role of a freshman student. His character Kevin Brever, along with Morris and Carter, got into such adventures and misadventures during the course of the plot that they barely survived all these tests. And all because they did not know the important rule of the first year, which says that the main thing in the first year of college is not to make enemies for yourself.
Bell's second decade began with The Avengers. The Greatest Heroes of the Earth "(2010-2012) and the film" Fairly OddParents ". By the way, the series was among the best in the actor's portfolio, as well as the series Seinfeld (1989-1998), The Pretender (1996-2000) and Phineas and Ferb (2007-2015). And in the series "Drake and Josh" (2004-2007) Bell acted not only as an actor, but also as a director.
Beginning in 2012, Bell began to actively engage in voice acting, finding in this for himself another plane of application in cinematography. And then music took over most of his attention.
He has written songs before, and those who have heard the Drake & Josh soundtrack know that Bell wrote it. He did not even think that his musical creativity could be useful somewhere, but the creators of the project liked the music. This inspired the young actor, and he began to try to realize himself as a composer and performer.
In 2005, Bell's debut album, Telegraph, was released. His songs earned the love of thousands of female fans, and then representatives of record companies drew attention to the aspiring musician.And in 2006 Drake signed a contract with Universal Records, where he later recorded another disc, which he called It’s Only Time.
Then an important event happened in his musical life: he went on a tour of the American continent and visited many cities. The audience of the small halls where Bell performed warmly welcomed him, and this delighted the musician and made him even more famous.
Bell's latest creative innovation is a video for the song Rewind, which he shot in 2018. In one interview, he said that he was not going to record any more albums, but he would continue to perform in bars and small halls.
And all because filming for him is still ongoing, and they take up a lot of time. So, in 2018, Drake starred in three short films and in the detective story "Cover Version". For the future, he also plans to work on television and in films.
To date, the best films in his portfolio are Drake and Josh in Hollywood (2006), Jerry Maguire (1996), Jack Bull (1999) and Yours, Mine and Ours (2005)
Over the years, the young handsome actor had many romances with colleagues in the shop: for a whole year he met with actress Torrie DeVito, for three years - with Melissa Lingafelt. He also had other hobbies.
Bella's current lady of the heart is a young actress Janet Vaughn. She recently appeared in the cinema and cannot boast of such fame as Drake's. However, she believes that everything is ahead of her.
Drake and Janet appear together at social events and do not hide their relationship - they are a very beautiful couple.
