He Played Wesley on "Mr. Belvedere." See Brice Beckham Now at 46.

The actor has a sense of humor about his child star days.

In 1985, audiences were introduced to Mr. Belvedere, an English butler working for an American family on the sitcom of the same name. The show starred Christopher Hewett in the title role, and one of the children he helped raise was Wesley, the youngest member of the Owens family, who was played by Brice Beckham. At the time that Mr. Belvedere premiered, Beckham was only nine years old, and when it concluded in 1990, he was 14—so the actor spent some formative years in front of the TV cameras.

Now, Beckham has moved out of the spotlight and instead works mostly behind the scenes on TV shows and films as a writer and production company founder. Read on to learn more about Beckham's life today at 46.

In 2020, the cast of Mr. Belvedere reunited over Zoom to raise money for The Actors Fund. Beckham was joined by the actors who played the rest of the Owens family: Tracy Wells, Rob Stone, Ilene Graff, and Bob Uecker. Hewett, who played Mr. Belvedere, passed away in 2001.

Beckham promoted the meetup on social media, where he also proves he has a sense of humor about his days as a child actor. His Twitter bio reads, "Yeah, Wesley. Yeah, from Mr. Belvedere. I know, the '80s, weird. I also write TV and movies and funny web shorts, but you're here because of Mr- gotcha, okay."
