Emma Roberts Says Quiet on Set Docuseries ‘Really Kept Me Up at Night’ and Made Her ‘Really Sad’

The actress has responded to the shocking docuseries — exposing the abuse of former child stars — which aired in March

Emma Roberts is sharing her reaction to the Quiet on Set: The Dark Side Of Kids TV docuseries.

The actress and former child star, 33, said she was left “horrified and shocked” after watching the disturbing docuseries — which revealed claims of child abuse from former Nickelodeon child stars —as she shared her positive experience working with the network as a young actress.

“I was completely horrified and shocked because that was not my experience,” Roberts told Variety in an interview published on July 5. “It made me really, really, really sad that that was happening to people that I literally saw often and had no idea.”

Roberts — who starred in her own show, Nickelodeon’s Unfabulous (2004-2007), from age 13 — then spoke of her time working on her TV series at the network.

“The showrunner we had was this amazing woman named Sue Rose. And I didn’t realize at the time, but a female showrunner back then was not very common,” she recalled. “But that was my intro into working on a TV show.”

“Also, my mom was with me 24/7, and even I would be like, ‘You don’t have to be here all the time,’ she was like, ‘I do actually. I’m not letting you out of my sight. You’re not going to a fitting by yourself when you’re 13 years old.’ ”

Roberts added that watching her peers speak about their experiences of abuse as child actors “makes me really sad.”

“I just feel like children need to be protected on sets, as do adults, and I feel like we’re working towards a better work environment in that sense. But yeah, that documentary really kept me up at night,” she told Variety.
