Finn Wolfhard's Lookalike Brother Nick Is His Biggest Fan!

Canadian actor and musician Finn Wolfhard is best known for his portrayal of Mike Wheeler in the Netflix series Stranger Things. At just 17-years-old, Finn has earned himself a Screen Actor's Guild award, a signed rock band named Calpurnia, and even a spot in "Forbes 30 Under 30" list for 2020. 

No doubt about it, Finn is just getting started with his career, with films in post-production and audiences still enjoying recent releases like It: Chapter Two, The Addams Family, and The Turning.

No doubt about it, Finn is just getting started with his career, with films in post-production and audiences still enjoying recent releases like It: Chapter Two, The Addams Family, and The Turning.

Not only is Finn's career interesting, but so is his family.

It makes sense that Finn is backed by a family who is in their own right, talented and passionate people. Finn's mother, Mary, passed down her love of music and acting and was the reason why he started learning guitar. She currently works for Dormouse Design.

His father, Eric, not only manages Finn's career but researches aboriginal lands as well. This is perhaps why Finn has taken the approach he has with his philanthropy: donating proceeds from merchandise sales to children in indigenous communities. 

Finn's philanthropic initiatives also cover autism awareness and acceptance and assisting struggling musicians in need of healthcare.

Again, what have I done with my life?

Then there's big brother Nicholas, or Nick, for short. There's no doubt that Finn and Nick are related. The brothers both have that iconic, dark, curly hair, wide-set eyes, and boyish face.

Finn's big brother Nick Wolfhard is an actor, too.

Nick Wolfhard is five years older than Finn and, as is an older sibling's right to say, started acting in high school way before Finn did. Nick has experienced his own success in the entertainment industry as a voice actor. 

His voice credits include Jack in The Last Kids on Earth, Yugo Nansui in Beyblade, and Miyoshi in World Trigger. He also appeared as Eric Vaughn in the TV series The InBetween.

As much as he likes voice acting, he is anxious to jump into more on-screen projects. Talking with CheatSheet about his experience on The InBetween, Nick revealed, "When you have an amazing set with amazing people working on it and you really put your all into a scene, that's also such a satisfying moment. I have a newfound respect for on-camera acting and I'd love to do more."

Nick is supportive of Finn.

As big brothers usually do, Nick has been nothing but supportive of Finn's career. 

The film business is not easy and never was. To put it simply, things happen all the time, and Finn would know. Just after Finn was cast in It: Chapter Two, the original director quit the movie. The film almost didn't happen.

Of course, such a hard hit can take a toll on one's confidence and excitement. Finn was ready to back out of acting altogether, but Nick encouraged him to keep going — which Finn did. He eventually landed Stranger Things, and production of It continued.

Will Nick and Finn ever work together?

There's nothing like a big brother to keep you going. We may not be able to say that Nick is as well-known as Finn on the screen, but Finn is working on a pilot with his brother. A "big producer" apparently backs it, too. 

We will just have to wait and see if the network accepts it!
