Actor, author and celebrity blogger Wil Wheaton, best known for his role on Star Trek: The Next Generation, will be in attendance at the Polaris Convention, a week-long celebration of science fiction and fantasy taking place at the Sheraton Parkway in Toronto this in July 6th through 8th. Fans will have the opportunity to meet Wil for autographs and photos. Advance tickets to the event are available on the Polaris website.
Wheaton began a successful acting career in 1986 with Stand By Me and Toy Soldiers, taking on the role of Wesley Crusher in Star Trek: The Next Generation in his teen years. He currently splits his time between acting and writing, with recurring roles on SyFy’s hit series Eureka, TNT’s Leverage, and as a “delightfully evil” version of himself on CBS’s The Big Bang Theory. Wheaton is also a prolific voice actor who has appeared in video games such as Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Red Dead Redemption, Fallout: New Vegas and DC Universe Online.
As an author, Wheaton has published several books including Just A Geek, Dancing Barefoot, The Happiest Days of Our Lives, and Memories of the Future Volume 1, a humorous and nostalgic episode guide of the first half of the first season of Star Trek: The Next Generation. The books grew out of his award-winning blog, currently WWdN: In Exile which has earned him a following as one of the most influential web celebrities according to Forbes magazine.
