Cheetah Girls' Sabrina Bryan reveals why she feels 'really lucky' to have survived child stardom

Sabrina Bryan feels "really lucky" that her parents were always on set with her when she was growing up.

The 39-year-old actress started acting at the age of 12 and later found worldwide success as part of the Disney Channel group The Cheetah Girls but following the release of the documentary 'Quiet on Set' - which sees former stars of Nickelodeon divulge allegations of inappropriate behavior early on in their career - admitted that she is just "grateful" that she didn't experience anything negative.

She told People: "When you are growing up in front of the camera also how you're around all adults, there's a lot of things that go into it, some amazing, some not great. And I was always really grateful because I always had a lot of protection around me.

"My parents, one of them was always on set with me and just really kept me away from anything that could be dangerous or put me in a bad place. And I just really got lucky that I had parents that were just always eyes open. The industry is amazing, but you have to always be careful and take care of your kids."

In the series, former 'Drake and Josh' star Drake Bell opened up about how he was sexually abused by Peck during his time on 'The Amanda Show' between 1999 and 2000.

In 2004, Peck pleaded no contest to a charge of oral copulation with a minor under 16 as well as a charge of performing a lewd act with a 14 or 15-year-old. Bell was the plaintiff but his identity as the victim was not made public at the time.

Peck spent 16 months in prison and was mandated to register as a sex offender.

Recalling the abuse, Bell said: "Brian and I became really close because we had a lot of the same interests, which looking back, I think that was probably a little calculated."

The docuseries aired on March 17 and March 18, and executives at the children's network have claimed that they are "dismayed and saddened" to learn of the situation now that Drake has disclosed his identity.

In a statement, Nickelodeon said: "Now that Drake Bell had disclosed his identity as the plaintiff in the 2004 case, we are dismayed and saddened to learn of the trauma he has endured, and we commend and support the strength required to come forward."
