Percy Hynes White has never mentioned if he has any siblings- he seemingly is the only child of his parents.
Percy’s Parents Are Separated
The Odd Squad star keeps his family profile as low-key as possible on his social media. But that doesn’t mean, he is away from spending quality time with his parents, even though they are separated.
Although White’s parents are yet to disclose when and why they parted ways, the two are on good terms.
Surfing through Sherry White’s Instagram posts, she stopped sharing pictures with Joel after the 2016 fall.
By March 2018, she went Instagram official with her new boyfriend, who goes by the IG handle @kkscott. On the other side, ‘The Con Artist’ actor is mum about his current relationship status.
Main Cast In ‘The Gifted’ and ‘Wednesday’– Roles of Percy Hynes White?
After nearly a decade into the TV journey, Percy White earned his first-ever role as the main cast, Andy Strucker, in The Gifted (2017-19).
The superhero-based series was set on an alternate timeline to the X-Men film series– in the series, his character Andy has the telekinesis power to pull apart things at the molecular level. It co-starred Stephen Moyer, Amy Acker, Sean Teale, and Natalie Alyn Lind, among others.
It ran through 2 seasons (totaling 29 episodes) before Fox canceled it.
And it followed guest TV appearances in The Twilight Zone, Transplant and Nurses along with movie work in Our House (2018, film).
Thanks to the Netflix supernatural comedy horror Wednesday (2022), White landed another milestone in his career.
It is a spin-off of ‘The Addams Family’ particularly focused on Wednesday Addams (played by Jenna Ortega)- the daughter of Morticia Addams (actress Catherine Zeta-Jones) and Gomez Addams (actor Luis Guzmán).
In the series, Percy’s character Xavier Thorpe is an attendee of Nevermore Academy (a school for monstrous outcasts) and has the ability to make his art come to life.
The first season (of 8 episodes) of ‘Wednesday’ premiered on November 23, 2022. Percy’s character portrayal was among the fan favorites along with Emma Myers who portrayed a werewolf, Enid Sinclair.
Other stars in the series include Gwendoline Christie, Riki Lindhome, Jamie McShane, Hunter Doohan, Naomi J. Ogawa, and Christina Ricci. The confirmation for Season 2 of ‘Wednesday’ is yet to become official.
Net Worth Of Percy Hynes White
Online sources estimate that Percy Hynes White’s net worth could be around $1.5 million as of late 2022. As it seems, White’s major income source is his acting career running along since he was five.
Also, his parents Joel Hynes and Sherry White, both with careers in the entertainment industry own allegedly $2 million and $700,000 respectively.
For Percy, acting was an influence from the early days- that’s why he earned a role in Down to the Dirt at 5 years old. By the age of 7 (in the mid-2000s), he was in his first-ever speaking role in the movie Crackie; it was released in 2009.
After that, it was a few-year hiatus before Percy White returned professionally- worked in the film Cast No Shadow (2014) and a guest appearance in Rookie Blue (2014). The actor then went on with an emphasis on TV works, in Murdoch Mysteries (2014-15) as Simon Brooks, Odd Squad (2015-16) as Odie, and Between (2015-16) as Harrison.
Later, he would pump himself with fame through The Gifted and Wednesday, which would earn him a salary in the 5-digit figure per episode.
Also, his film appearances added a lucrative sum of money to his account. White’s movie works include A Christmas Horror Story (2015), Rupture (2016), Edge of Winter (2016), Our House (2018) and I Like Movies (2022).
