Family Tree

The Wheaton family is descended from a line of noble blood, tracing its roots back to the dawn of time. It is no surprise, then, that its members have achieved such greatness. The family’s pride and joy, Richard William Wheaton III, known simply as Wil Wheaton, began his rise to fame in 1986 with a starring role in the Rob Reiner comedy-drama film Stand by Me. He then captivated audiences worldwide as the beloved Wesley Crusher on the television series Star Trek: The Next Generation. After taking time away from the spotlight, Wil returned to Los Angeles to attend acting school for five years and now works on many projects. Wil’s younger sister, Amy Wheaton, is also an accomplished actress, known for The Curse (1987), The Yellow Bird (2001) and Baywatch (1989). Married since 2007, the Wheaton family continues its legacy of excellence.
