SPENCER VAN WYCK (Henry)Wyck has been acting in film and television for over ten years, not surprising as he comes from a family of entertainers. Kate Melville created his character Wesley Betenkamp as a guest star in Season Nine of DEGRASSI: THE NEXT GENERATION (MuchMusic and TeenNick), and his outstanding performance led the writing staff to make Wesley a regular cast member for Seasons Ten and Eleven.
A highlight of this past season was the week Spencer and 15 other members of the DEGRASSI cast spent in Haiti, working with FREE THE CHILDREN, building a playground for a school in a remote area of that country. Creative pursuits include music, filmmaking and video editing.
Spencer’s other screen credits include NEVER CRY WEREWOLF opposite Nina Dobrev, KNIGHTS OF THE SOUTH BRONX with Ted Danson, CELINE and SISTER MARY EXPLAINS IT ALL. Spencer was featured in the edgy coming-of-age film, THE LESSER BLESSED, which shot in northern Ontario, starring Benjamin Bratt and directed by Anita Doron.
