I’m glad I didn’t conform to the system of the school. I’m a law-abiding citizen now. I haven’t brought it to the soundstage,” he grins. The first altercation happened at a Catholic boys school. “It was with a bunch of jock-y, racist kids. I thought, ‘This is an expensive school. My parents paid a lot of money.’ And I got into a fight every day. It was just like this weird atmosphere. “And they finally kicked me out, and I was really depressed about it. And then later it dawned upon me that, thank God, I didn’t fit in with those kids because I don’t want to be anything like those kids. So that’s when I realized it was OK to sort of do my own thing. That’s kind of like when I found a safe haven in acting. I think it may have been a catalyst.” Wesley, now 27, earned his diploma, but schooling was always secondary to his acting career, which materialized when he was 16. “I got forced to do a school play when I was in the third grade because we all had to. They put me in a ‘Phantom’ mask, and I was miserable at first. But then I kind of fell in love with it and ended up being, I guess, according to the teacher, pretty good at it,” he says. That teacher cast him in every play at elementary school. “No matter how academic I was, no matter how much my father stressed studies, I always gravitated toward the arts because to me — you can read as many textbooks as you like — but to me life is about observing people and understanding things and nature. And art to me captures all that. It’s just invaluable, and I can’t imagine doing anything else.”
