What the Hell Happened to Proto Zoa from Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century?

Spoiler alert: He's still bae.

First thing’s first: If you don’t recall Disney’s Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century as a historic gem from the ’90s that’s frozen in time, you have no business being here and instead, need to go here immediately. OK, now that that’s squared away, let’s talk about the hip-thrusting, DGAF-ing, awesomely bad rock star Proto Zoa, Zenon’s (and all of our) teen heartthrob.

  • He did ambiguously sexual movements like this.

    That we couldn’t peel our adolescent eyes from.

  • He was just so effortlessly cool, you know?

    MTV

    Ugh.

  • He came through our TVs and sang into our souls like this.

  • His lyrics spoke to us on so many levels.

    Embedded from www.youtube.com.

    “There’s no gravity between us, our love is automatic.”

  • And when you least expected, he would be like BAM.

  • Making us all feel like:

  • This dreamboat’s real name is Phillip Rhys. A 41-year-old British actor.

    Yes, he has mediocre Twitter game.

  • After his groundbreaking role, he was featured in shows like 24, Nip/Tuck, and BBC’s Survivors.

    BBC

    And movies, like Steven Spielberg’s The Adventures of Tintin (2011).

  • Here he is recently on the set of Tripped.

  • He’s also taken his talents behind the camera, as director/producer of the short The Scarecrow.

    So diverse. <3

  • Are you ready for the big reveal? We now present you with the RL PROTO ZOA:

    Once a bae, always a bae.

Pizza is bae. And yes, I still say bae.
