Buffy the Vampire Slayer actor Nicholas Brendon is in some pretty deep water, following a charge for alleged felony prescription fraud. There’s so much confusion over the star’s identification – but does he actually have a twin?
This isn’t Brendon’s first run-in with the police.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer star arrested
Outlets report that 50-year-old Nicholas Brendon was reportedly arrested for alleged prescription fraud.
The former Buffy star was pulled over by Terre Haute police in mid-August for failing to signal and swerving around the road, as per TMZ.
Reportedly, cops noticed that the actor “appeared nervous due to a visibly racing pulse on his neck and shaking hands.”
Upon searching Brendon’s vehicle, police found medication prescribed to a ‘Nicholas Bender’, plus a further prescription for Kelton Schultz.
Here’s the plot twist… according to TMZ, Nicholas Brendon told police that ‘Kelton Schultz’ is actually the name of his twin brother.
So, the question stands: does Brendon actually have a twin?
Does Nicholas Brendon have a twin brother?
Oddly enough, Nicholas Brendon does have a twin brother – but his name isn’t Kelton Schultz!
Nicholas’ twin brother IRL is actually named Kelly Donovan. Kelly even portrayed the double of Xander Harris for a few Buffy episodes!
According to Donovan’s IMDb page, the twin has dabbled in set dressing, acting and, more recently, tried his hand at stunt work.
What happened next for Brendon?
Reportedly, Brendon was held at the Vigo County Jail, but has since been released.
However, this isn’t the star’s first run-in with authorities. This source reports that the actor was arrested four times back in 2015.
