Early Life

Wyatt Hawn Russell was born on July 10th, 1986 in Los Angeles, California, United States of America. Both of his parents, Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn, are famous actors, so he was always very involved in show business. However, this wasn’t his first career option.

The next year he stuck on TV for some time while he was part of the show Lodge 49, a comedy-drama about an ex-surfer who is looking for a happy life, but it was canceled in 2019 after two seasons.

2018 was a great year for Wyatt Russell because he landed the lead role of Lewis Ford in the horror-action movie Overlord along with Jovan Adepo, this was a good move for his career since it opened more offers in the future thanks to his performance.

In 2020 he appeared on 8 episodes of The Good Lord Bird as J.E.B Stuart.

In 2021, he was part of The Woman in the Window, along with Amy Adams, Julianne Moore, Gary Oldman, and his current co-star Anthony Mackie.
