Who is Anne Wheaton?
Anne L. Prince was born on August 8, 1969 in the United States of America. She is an author, blogger and online personality, but perhaps better known as the wife of actor Will Wheaton. Her husband rose to fame on the television series “Star Trek: The Next Generation” as Wesly Crusher, and later became known for his work in promoting geek culture.
The Wealth of Anne Wheaton
As of early 2020, Anne Wheaton’s net worth is estimated to be over $1 million earned through success in her various endeavors. Her collaborations with her husband and the children’s book have helped her bring in wealth.
She is also likely benefiting from her husband’s success, who has an estimated net worth of more than $500,000.
Life and career
Anne largely grew out of the spotlight until her marriage to Wil. She was previously in a long-term relationship and had two children from it, which eventually ended. After her marriage, the two children remained close to their stepfather, with one even asking for adoption when he was 19, which Wil accepted.
The first project the couple worked on together is the independent film called “Neverland” released in 2003 which retells the story of Peter Pan, inspired by JM Barrie’s 1904 play and novel “Peter and Wendy” , which appeared in 1911. She then became a sought-after guest in the web series “Tabletop”, which was organized by her husband. The show was created with the help of actress and businesswoman Felicia Day. The show aired on the YouTube channel Geek and Sundry, featuring various guests, often celebrities, playing popular table games. These ranged from card games to role playing games and Euro board games, more strategically focused board games.
Husband – Wil Wheaton
Wil did not have a good childhood because he was abused by his father, while his mother facilitated that abuse. He grew close to his two siblings. As his mother was involved in the entertainment industry, he would soon follow the same path and venture into acting projects in 1980. One of his first projects was the animated movie “The Secret of NIMH”, and he was also cast in a small role in “The Last Starfighter”, but his role was eventually dropped.
In 1986, he started to get some attention for his work in the movie “Stay with me”, in which he played Gordie Lachance.
The film is an adaptation of the novella called “The Body” written by Stephen King and published in 1982, which tells the story of four boys who discover the body of a missing boy while out for a walk. The film was nominated for an Academy Award for its screenplay. His biggest role came when he became part of the television series “Star Trek: The Next Generation” playing the recurring character Wesley Crusher.
Life after Star Trek – Wil Wheaton
After”Star Trek”, Wheaton had considerably lesser roles, although he was diligent about pursuing acting. He appeared in the movie “Toy Soldiers” and then embarked on a foray into independent films.
He made a name for himself with appearances on “The Good Things” and “Jane White Is Sick & Twisted”, then became a regular on television shows such as “Numb3rs”, “Criminal Minds” and the web series “The Guild”, one of his first collaborations with Felicia Day.
From the third season of “The big bang theory”, he was cast as a recurring character on the show, playing a fictionalized version of himself. He also became very popular as a voice actor and often worked on various television shows based on comic book franchises. He also narrates several audiobooks, including “Ready Player One” and “Chronicles of Amber”.
Some of his most popular projects include “Naruto”, “Batman: The Brave and the Bold”, “Teen Titans”, and “Zero Day”. He also did voice acting for video games, including a consistent voice for several “Grand Theft Auto” games. His voice can often be heard from pedestrians or disc jockeys in the series.
Geek Culture – Wil Wheaton
During the latter part of his career, Wil became more involved in promoting various interests from gaming to comic books and nerd culture in general. He is a huge fan of “Dungeons & Dragons” and has appeared on numerous web shows as a player. He also helped create the show “TableTop”, which had millions of views between 2012 and 2017.
He has also often expressed his love for poker, even playing and hosting regular events before finally retiring in the late 2000s.
Like his wife, he is also a writer and had a blog where he expressed some of his interests. His fame as an actor and passion for nerd culture made him a guest on many popular websites. He founded an independent publishing company called Monolith Press, which led to the release of ‘Dancing Barefoot’ and ‘Just a Geek’, which chronicled his experiences in life. His love of books and writing has led him to many audiobook projects as a narrator.
Some of his most recent works include ‘Boneshaker’ by Cherie Priest, ‘The Collapsing’ by Tobias Buckell and ‘The Consuming Fire’ by John Scalzi.
Anne married Wil in 1999 and the family lives in Arcadia, California; they have no children together. They share the same love for nerd culture which has allowed them to connect really well in their relationship. Her husband is an atheist, although it is unknown if she shares the same beliefs. He is also very active in politics, self-describes as a liberal, and is a known supporter of Barack Obama and earlier supported Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election. Anne probably shares the same inclinations, although it has not been confirmed.
