Mack Wilds is actually his name, not just his stage name. His full name is Tristan Paul Mack Wilds.
Although he’s almost always cast in black roles, he’s part Dominican and Irish.
He’s from Staten Island, New York, which explains his album’s title—New York: A Love Story.
He began acting at the age of seven but got his big break in 2005 with mini TV series, Miracle's Boys.
He was our favorite delinquent in HBO’s The Wire (shh… don’t tell Idris Elba or Michael B. Jordan)
He’s also the reason we tuned in to the CW series, 90210.
He modeled for Macy’s, Sean John and Rocawear.
He’s been romantically linked to Sevyn Streeter but neither ever confirmed if their on-screen chemistry in her “nEXt” video was more than just for work.
He dabbles in photography and DJing.
His friends are pretty dope: Wiz Khalifa, Teyana Taylor, Trey Songz and Swizz Beats just to name a few.
He’s got a sense of humor to go with that gorgeous smile of his.
