Where Are They Now: Disney Channel Original Movies Edition

Have you been wondering what the stars of Brink and Zenon have been up to?





Brink! (1998)

A young rollerblader is torn between earning money to help out his family and his passion to skate and staying true to himself.

Erik Von Detten (Andy "Brink" Brinker)

Brink was an amazing rollerblader who went against his friends and skated for money to try and help out his family. Erik has also starred on Disney's "So Weird" as Clu, "The Princess Diaries", and recently appeared on "Bones" along with some other small roles on television. I have no idea who the woman is in that picture.

Sam Horrigan (Val)

Val was the jerk who was on an opposing skate team and a bully at school. After Brink Sam had several television appearances and guest starred on "Grace Under Fire." He most recently was on Season 4 of "Beauty and the Geek" and is now in production of a movie called "Horror 88" as Robert.

Christina Vidal (Gabriella)

Gabriella was the badass chick that skated with Brink who hurt her arm after a race with Val and his friends. Christina also costarred with Lindsay Lohan in "Freaky Friday" and she appeared in "I Think I Love My Wife" with Chris Rock. She's also a singer and is (was?) signed to MCA records and had an album come out in 2002.

Peter aka Petey was Brink's best friend who was especially upset when Brink betrayed him to skate on Val's team. Patrick also starred in Disney's "So Weird" as Jack and "Miracle in Lane 2." The only really recent thing he's done is a movie that was released earlier this year called "Matilda."

Walter Jones (Boomer)

Boomer was Val's friend who felt remorse when they would be mean to Brink and his friends. Walter is probably best known as the awesome Zack Taylor aka the Black Power Ranger. He also appeared on "Space Cases" and "The Shield."

The last thing she appeared in was Z3 in 2004, and she attended Biola University in La Mirada, California. I found her Facebook as well.

Phillip appeared in the first two Zenon movies, and he's been on episodes of "Flatland," "Nip/Tuck," and "24." He's currently working on two films with Al Pacino and Stephen Spielberg.

This is obviously not all of the Disney Channel Original movies, just a select few. I may do a part two soon. I also found all of these movies on YouTube if anyone is interested in watching them, they bring back good memories.

EDIT: Since there have been so many requests for more Disney movies, I may do a part two AND three. We'll see!
