Forrest Wheeler, aged 10, has been entertaining us with his acting since he was seven years old. But lately, he has been garnering ever more praise from critics and love from his increasing number of fans for his role as Emery Huang in ABC TV show "Fresh off the Boat".

While the series about Huang family was inspired by the life of chef and food personality Eddie Huang and his book Fresh Off the Boat: A Memoir, one can’t help but notice the cute little Asian boy who plays the role of Emery, the middle child of his parents. Wheeler beautifully portrays the character of Emery, who is not just romantic and lovable but also extremely talented and charismatic. The boy shows characters of a person who is far more mature than his age. 

Comparing Forrest’s and Emery’s personality, one can easily find similarities between them. Both are cute, smart, loving and talented. Wheeler is indeed a reservoir of talent. You would hardly believe all the things this cute little boy can do. So today, we have come up with a few interesting facts about our favorite young artist. So brace yourself people. 

The child actor, who has appeared in several commercials, live performances, voice-overs and several TV shows like Community, New Girl and Chasing Life is ambidextrous. Yes guys, he can write with his both hands and he plays tennis with a two handled racquet, amazing isn’t it? We have more fun filled facts about Forrest Wheeler just for you.

Looks like Wheeler is a huge fan of the movies, Back to the Future Part II and Back to the Future Part III. If not, he would not have wanted to buy a levitating board, which we first saw in the futuristic drama. 

Wheeler once said in one of his interviews that he could not wait to get his driver’s license. You would not believe why. “I can’t wait to get my driver’s license because I am an excellent backseat driver,” said the child actor jokingly. As we dig deeper into his personal interests, we are finding out more interesting yet bizarre facts about Wheeler. 

Forrest is a black belt holder in Karate and he wishes to get his black belt in Extreme Martial Arts (XMA) as well. He is still attending school, but it is hard to believe how, at such a young age, the boy has been able to achieve more than most adults have ever done in their entire careers.
