Then + Now: ’90s Teen Star Erik von Detten

Erik von Detten BB magazine

You’ve seen him in ‘Escape to Witch Mountain,’ ‘Brink,’ and, if you’re going way, way back, as a child star on ‘Days of Our Lives’ — but what’s former teen star Erik von Detten up to these days?


Erik von Detten got his start on ‘Days of Our Lives,’ playing Nicholas Alamain from 1992 to 1993. Following that, he starred in some TV movies, like the Disney channel’s ‘Escape to Witch Mountain’ (with future ‘Mad Men’ actress Elisabeth Moss) and ‘Brink,’ about a rollerblading high school kid. He also starred on the TV shows ‘Odd Man Out’ and ‘So Weird,’ and provided the voice of evil next door neighbor Sid in ‘Toy Story.’

Erik von Detten discovered a talent for voice acting, and has lent his pipes to shows like ‘Family Guy’ and ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender.’ He reprised the voice of Sid in ‘Toy Story 3′ (though he didn’t have lines; in one scene you can hear Sid singing a heavy metal riff while listening to an MP3 player), and recently guest-starred on an episode of ‘Bones.’
