1. He’s British. The London-born actor attended Highgate School in North London and made his acting debut in the 2002 British miniseries Doctor Zhivago, then starred in the comedy Sixty Six alongside celebs like Helena Bonham Carter and Catherine Tate.
2. He was raised Jewish. Did you know Gregg had his Bar Mitzvah by the Western Wall in Israel? Pretty cool!
3. He’s worked with Selena Gomez. Gregg was on Disney Channel’s As The Bell Rings (UK) and, more notably, had a recurring guest role on Wizards of Waverly Place playing Alex Russo (Selena Gomez)’s werewolf love interest Mason Greybeck. Lucky guy!
4. He filmed a movie in New Zealand. His guest role on Wizards wasn’t the end of Gregg’s Disney career. In 2010 he went to New Zealand to film the Disney Channel Original movie Avalon High, which premiered on November 12th 2010.
5. He’s going to be in the next Wizards of Waverly Place movie! Good news, you’ll get to see more of Gregg & Selena in the upcoming Wizards movie The Wizards Return: Alex vs Alex, set to premiere on the Disney Channel later this year. Did you know the new movie takes place in Italy?
Gregg definitely has done some cool things, and we can’t wait to see more of Wesley on this season of PLL!
