For someone who was introduced to the world of show business early on in his life, Wolfgang Novogratz took a long time to really pursue a career in acting. He was 13 years old when he was part of a TV show with his family, and seven years later the actor was starring in movies and appearing in TV shows. Slowly the actor is making his way to the top, and new Netflix movies The Half of It and Feel the Beat are propelling the actor to worldwide fame.

But he came back to the world of show business in 2017 and slowly started to put his brand of content out there. There are no shortages of fans for the handsome actor, and we suspect the number of fans is only going to grow more in the coming day.
