Wyatt Oleff is the American actor who portrays Young Rumplestiltskin on ABC's Once Upon a Time.



Wyatt Oleff's acting career got started in 2012 when he landed a minor role in the NBC comedy series Animal Practice.[1] He is best known for playing young Peter Quill in the 2014 superhero film Guardians of the Galaxy,[1] a role he reprised in the 2017 sequel. He has played guest roles on TV shows such as Suburgatory, Shake It Up and Scorpion[1] and has a starring role as Stan Uris in the upcoming horror film It,[2] based on Stephen King's famous novel of the same name.


  • When Wyatt auditioned for the role Young Rumplestiltskin at the age of ten, he had never attempted to speak with a Scottish accent before and felt very insecure about it. He and his mother wondered if it might be best to pass on the opportunity altogether, but a dialect coach guided him through it and also helped him learn the dialogue after Wyatt nabbed the role and also assisted him during ADR.[3]
