Erik started his career with his earliest roles in the daytime soap opera Days of Our Lives, Toy Story, Christmas Every Day, Leave It to Beaver until he landed in a theatrical release of The Princess Diaries in 2001 as Josh Bryant. This Josh he played was so well-loved. He was everyone’s heartthrob making appearances at the center of every teeny-bopper magazine published around the millennium.
But eventually, people started seeing very little of him on screens.
Once so famous, he has been off the radar for quite some time, with very few credits like lending voice to episodes of Family Guy and Avatar: The Last Airbender. “My hat’s off to actors who can maintain a steady career for 30 years,” the actor candidly told Romper in 2018.
He explained at the time, that no matter how talented you are, making a career in the industry, is going to be a pretty big gamble.
So, after he was sure he wanted to get married eventually and start a family, he quickly realized he was going to need much more consistent work. And thus happened the commodities brokerage.

He continued acting from time-to-time, mostly by doing local community theatre in the spare time he could manage from his other jobs.
Looking back, he perceives himself and his former career, as “somewhat famous.” He explained,
“I never reached super fame, if you will. I was always kind of, under the radar at some extent, and I really enjoyed that actually because I think that if you become too famous I guess, you can’t really even have much of a private life.”
Today, Erik von Detten is happy he has found his place in the world, the way it was meant to be.
