Richard William Wheaton II, a.k.a. Wil Wheaton, is an American born actor, blogger, writer, and voice actor best known for his portrayal of Wesley Crusher in the TV series Star Trek: The Next Generation alongside Patrick Stewart, Marina Sirtis, and others.
Born on 29th July 1972, the 45-year-old Wil Wheaton has amassed an estimated net worth of $2.5 million as of 2018. Let's find out more about his net worth, salary, career achievements and much more.
Wil Wheaton's Net Worth and Salary
As of 2018, Wil Wheaton has an estimated net worth of $2.5 million. But his figures are still different in some cases. According to Taddlr, it is expected to be just $1 million. While other tabloids also suggest that the actor has just $500 thousand as his total net worth.
Nonetheless, his net worth is still speculated in around millions, and we assume that $1 million is quite low for such a talented actor.
Despite the contradictions regarding his net worth, Wil Wheaton's value has drastically increased over the years. Back in 2012, his net value was estimated to be around $500,000, which some outlets still think to be constant, if not, the same.
Increasing his value from a hundred thousand to millions is indeed a tremendous achievement, and it is all thanks to the roles he has been portraying.
