Date of Birth: December 23, 2002
Born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Finn Wolfhard made his screen acting debut at a young age beginning with guest appearances at age 10 on TV shows such as The 100 and Supernatural.
However, it was at 13, when he was cast in a starring role as Mike Wheeler on the Netflix series Stranger Things that he gained widespread fame. The sci-fi show immediately took off and Finn and the rest of the kids in the cast were immediate stars, attending and presenting at numerous prestigious awards shows, including the Golden Globes, the Screen Actors Guild Awards (where they won the Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series award) and the Primetime Emmy Awards.
A second season was quickly ordered and was also a ratings hit. In the meantime, Finn was cast as Richie in the major motion picture horror It, starring alongside Bill Skarsgård and fellow child star Jaeden Lieberher. He also played a lead role in the feature film Dog Days (2018), with Vanessa Hudgens and Nina Dobrev.
Finn reprised his role as Mike in the third season of Stranger Things, as well as his role as Richie in IT: Chapter Two (2019). In The Goldfinch (2019), he plays a supporting role as a Russian teenager named Boris, alongside Oakes Fegley, who plays Theo in the film based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel.
His most recent appearance on the big screen was in the motion picture horror/thriller The Turning (2020), a modern remake of the 1961 feature film The Innocents starring Deborah Kerr (which in turn was based on Henry James' novella The Turn of the Screw). He plays a young orphan named Miles in it, who, along with his sister Flora, gets a new governess, played by Mackenzie Davis.
Finn has also completed a role in the upcoming Ghostbusters: Afterlife (2021), in which he and his sister, played by Mckenna Grace, discover a ghost trap in the basement of their grandfather's house.
