Nickelodeon Teen Star Scores Unlikely Fan

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One clean-cut teen star is scoring fans in a dark, unlikely place.

Actor Devon Werkheiser is the star of the family- friendly Nickelodeon series Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide, and with the wholesome show under his belt, Werkheiser was surprised to run into a fan of his at the dark, gothic-inspired store, Hot Topic.

Werkheiser explains, “I met an awesome fan in Hot Topic a few years ago. She was like super Hot Topic style and emo’d out, and I was looking at all the band T-shirts, and she looked up at me and gasped. I said hi, but she couldn’t really say anything back. It was so cool that she recognized me, and even though she was quiet, it was still awesome!”

Other times, Werkheiser’s run-ins with fans are more awkward, especially when admirers claim to know something about his personal life that isn’t quite true.

He says, “It’s always funny when fans come up and think they know something crazy about you because they’ve read it somewhere. They’re like, ‘Oh, so you’re dating Jamie Lynn Spears?’ And I’m like, ‘No! Who... what?’”
