‘Zoey 101’ Alum Matthew Underwood Says He Quit Acting After Agent Allegedly Assaulted Him At 19

“Zoey 101” star Matthew Underwood is the latest Nickelodeon alum speaking out in the wake of the bombshell docuseries “Quiet on Set.” Underwood opened up about quitting his acting career, sharing in a lengthy Instagram post on March 29 that while he never personally experienced any misconduct while working for the network, he was allegedly harassed and assaulted by his then-agent at the time, whom he did not name. The former child actor claimed the alleged harassment and assault took place when he was 19 and led to his decision to step away from Hollywood altogether. Underwood went on to defend former “Zoey 101” showrunner Dan Schneider, who is mentioned throughout “Quiet on Set,” saying he believes the disgraced Nickelodeon producer “appears to recognize that he has been an a**hole in his past” and “is fully capable of being a creator and coworker everyone can enjoy working with.” “Quiet On Set: The Dark Side Of Kids TV” is streaming now on Max.
