is the youngest of the Owens family and certainly the most notorious.
He relishes in making Mr. Belvedere's life miserable.The name of the show
belongs to Mr. Belvedere, but Wesley T. Owens is without a doubt, the star
of the show.
Beckham learned how to act at the age of 3. Five years later he was
starring as Wesley, the youngest son in the George Owens family, in the
2oth Television Corporation series, Mr. Belvedere, not in its 6th season
Brice, who was
born on Feb. 11, 1976 in Long Beach, Calif., had the acting bug implanted
by his aunt Ellen Hicks who would describe certain emotions which he then
would respond to by giving them back to her. He also learned to read by
the age of 3, and by 4 he had expanded into doing cartoon character voices--his
Donald Duck is drawing rave notices.
He was enrolled
in the GATE program at the Minnie Grant Elementary School in Long Beach
and has studied piano, violin, recorder tap and ballet. Shortly before
joining Mr. Belvedere, he guest starred as "Howie" in the Television series
"Alice". He was a cub scout, loves soccer, is an excellent artist and hopes
to someday go to art school. During the 1987 hiatus he was the voice of
"Omar" on the cartoon, "Pound Puppies".
During the long
hiatus between seasons 4 and 5 (occasioned by the writer's strike), Brice
starred on stage at Hollywood's Cast Theatre in "Quirks", co-starring with
Kevin Scannel, Tanya Fenmore and Leslie Ray. When he isn't before the cameras,
Brice attends Stephen Hill Junior School in Long Beach.
He has since
