Wyatt McClure Talks His Big Acting Career, Young Sheldon & More! (EXCLUSIVE)

Last night, Soap Opera News spied cast members from "General Hospital,"  "The Young and the Restless," "Bold and the Beautiful" and other shows in the VIP Green Room at the Hollywood Christmas Parade. Fan-favorite Patrika Darbo was gushing about Wyatt McClure (pictured), an actor from Cleveland, OH  who stars as "Billy Sparks" on the mega-hit CBS comedy series, "Young Sheldon," a spin-off of "Big Bang Theory." Wyatt -- who also recently guest-starred on an episode of "Alex Inc" -- has quickly become a fan favorite on "Young Sheldon" as he continues to bring mischief and laughs to the show.

On the Thursday, December 5 episode of "Young Sheldon," Mary (Zoe Perry) takes matters into her own hands when Sheldon (Iain Armitage) isn't invited to Billy's birthday party. In “A Party Invitation, Football Grapes and an Earth Chicken” – Mary gets Pastor Jeff (Matt Hobby) involved when Sheldon isn’t invited to Billy’s birthday party. Also, George Sr. (Lance Barber) has “male-bonding time” with Dr. Sturgis (Wallace Shawn), on YOUNG SHELDON (8:00-8:31 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. When asked about  the episode, Wyatt promised  that fans can look forward  to "spending time with  Sheldon and eating a lot of cake." He was quick to add that "Billy was not responsible for the invites -- his mom set it all up. Billy  knows that more guests mean more presents!" For his own off-screen birthday (Wyatt turns 12 next year), the "Young Sheldon" star hopes to "rent out an amusement park for my friends and fans to join me in riding roller coasters all day!"

In addition to his role on "Young  Sheldon,"  Wyatt's most recent feature film credits include: "Psychos," "Glass Jaw," and the "Terror of Hallow's Eve." Of course, fans will always remember his break-out role in the timeless tear-jerker, "The Fault in Our Stars" and as co-host of the YouTube series, "Between 2 Phat Kids." Wyatt is a huge sports fan and a die-hard supporter of all teams from Cleveland, his hometown! He is obsessed with the Indians, the Cavs, and the Browns! Wyatt can tell you everything about his teams, as well as others in the leagues and has a reputation for being a walking knowledge of sports stats! 

Wyatt currently lives in Los Angeles where he spends time with his dog, Bella during his time off.

The Hollywood Christmas Parade airs December 13 on Hallmark Channel.
