Finn Wolfhard’s Acting History Is Packed With Sci-Fi and Thriller Roles

Finn Wolfhard may be best known for his “Stranger Things” character, Mike Wheeler, but the 19-year-old Canadian actor actually has a stacked résumé packed with sci-fi and thriller roles. On top of that, he even has some music experience. While Netflix’s supernatural phenomenon turned Wolfhard into a household name, he got his start in entertainment as a musician.

The singer/actor once served as a songwriter, lead vocalist, and guitarist for indie-rock band Calpurnia before the group broke up in 2019. Wolfhard later joined another indie music collective, The Aubreys, as one-half of the duo with drummer Malcolm Craig. But Wolfhard was already hustling to make his name well-known.

He snagged roles on shows like “The 100” and The CW’s “Supernatural” between 2014 and 2015 before he finally got picked up for Netflix’s sci-fi series, which swept five 2022 Emmy awards for season four. Since then, it’s been nothing but major projects lined up for Wolfhard — he’s set to star in Guillermo del Toro’s stop-motion rendition of “Pinocchio,” hitting Netflix Dec. 9.
