Star Trek fans can look forward to a really nice extended FedCon 28 weekend, because with Wilson Cruz now also Dr. Hugh Culber from Discovery joins the guest line-up. The actor, who grew up in Brooklyn in New York with Puerto Rican roots, will have a lot to tell about Star Trek: Discovery together with his colleagues Anson Mount and Shazad Latif.
Cruz is also currently to be seen in the role of Dennis Vasquez in the Netflix production Thirteen Reasons Why. Early in his career Wilson conquered the hearts of the audience when he played Rickie Vasquez in the series My So Called Life (1994 – 1995). It was the first publicly broadcasted television production that openly explored the life of a gay teenager. A story that was very similar to his own story. In Star Trek: Discovery, Wilson Cruz and Anthony Rapp (Paul Stamets) form the first homosexual couple in the history of the Star Trek franchise.
In addition to an impressive list of TV and feature film productions (including appearances in Ally McBeal, The Closer, Grey’s Anatomy, Navy CIS, American Dad, Pushing Dasies), the multi-talented actor’s curriculum vitae also includes numerous Broadway theater roles.
Look forward to the spirited and sympathetic Wilson Cruz on FedCon. Tickets and autograph/photo vouchers are of course available in the Ticket-Shop.
