Zoey 101 actor Paul Butcher is unrecognisable 15 years since Nickelodeon show

Between 2005 and 2008, viewers would have been familiar with actor Paul Butcher for his role on Zoey 101. Alongside the likes ofJamie-Lynn Spears and Victoria Justice, Paul starred in the Nickelodeon show where he played Zoey’s younger brother Dustin.

For the four seasons it was on air, Zoey 101 followed Zoey and her friends as they enjoyed life at Pacific Coast Academy – with Paul’s fresh-faced character Dustin being known for depending on his older sister and her tight-knit social circle.

But since the show came to an end 15 years ago, Paul has undergone a very dramatic transformation.

Now aged 29, Paul has ditched his blonde locks and has swapped up his look for an edgier brunette hair cut – and it hasn’t gone unnoticed by Zoey 101 fans.

“Had a crush on you then have a crush on you now dang,” wrote one TikTok user in response to his new look. “Talk about a fine glow up… looking good babes,” added another.

Following his time on Zoey 101, Paul continued to establish his career in the acting world and starred in films and shows such as Meet The Robinsons, Criminal Minds and Over The Hedge.

He also went back to school and headed to the University of California (UCLA) where he majored in music/film.

These days however, the TV star is busy embarking on a music career and has released a string of singles since 2010 – his song ‘Blood’ even has over one million streams on Spotify. At the moment, Paul is getting set to release his new single ‘Pieces’, much to the delight of his fans.

Under an Instagram post which promoted the new song, one social media user wrote: “I really want to hear this song and I know it will be a hit!!” Another added: “I am not over it, I am so excited and can not wait!”

Besides promoting his music, Paul also uses his Instagram account to give his 317,000 followers a glimpse into his life and often shares snaps of himself and his friends and different events and parties.

Despite not appearing in the recent Zoey 102 reboot, it appears that Paul has remained pals with some of his Zoey 101 co-stars and recently posted a picture of himself with Victoria Justice – who played Lola Martinez on the show.

“It’s all about the company you keep,” he wrote alongside a heart emoji. In response, Victoria commented with a series of heart emojis.

And on TikTok too, where he has amassed a whopping 1.1 million followers, Dustin recently shared a clip of him at the baby shower of Kristin Herrera who took the role of Dana Cruz in the first series of Zoey 101.
