Spencer Van Wyck is a Canadian actor who played Wesley Betenkamp in Degrassi: The Next Generation. He was born on October 5, 1992. He made a guest appearance in the Season 9 episode, Innocent When You Dream, and he appeared in seasons 10 and 11 as a regular. He did not appear in Season 12 because his character "ran out of plots". He also played the younger brother in the movie Never Cry Werewolf along with Nina Dobrev. He was interviewed alongside Jahmil French and Cory Lee in a special MuchMusic appearance during a commercial break of the Degrassi Season 10 Midfinale. He appeared in the movie The Lesser Blessed as Kevin Garner, also featuring Chloe Rose and Jacob Neayem. Spencer was also one of the Degrassi cast members who visited Haiti for relief work in 2011.

On June 29, 2011, after a long hiatus, Van Wyck confirmed (in a YouTube video) that he will not be returning to the show. This was after producers felt that his character was "used to his fullest extent." In 2012 he co-starred as Henry in the movie Picture Day.
