Blake McIver Ewing Gay, Boyfriend, Net Worth, Now
Besides the portrayal of rich antagonist Waldo in the now-classic movie The Little Rascals, actor/musician Blake McIver Ewing gets best recognized as Derek on Full House.
A year before landing a role in The Rascals, he had made his feature film debut with the beloved flick, The Calendar Girl. Years before, he received his start on the show-biz after winning the junior vocalist competition on the talent show, Star Search.
For his contribution to the Los Angeles production of Ragtime, Blake earned a nod for the Ovation Award.
Bio - Age, Family, Height & High School
Blake, an LA native, was born on 27 March 1945 as the son of Bill and Susie Ewing. In the 70s & 80s, his mother Susie was a staple among the TV audience, notable for her association with The Golddiggers.
The passion for acting/artistry runs deep in the Full House actor's family. Even his biological brother Zack is an actor - well, sort of it. Believe it or not, Zack is renowned for the voicing-over on the famed animated series, Lilo & Stitch: The Series.

As a high school student, then-teenager Blake faced bullying because of his gay identity. As a result, he even contemplated suicide - a heavy subject he tackled in his 2013 song called It Gets Better.
Admittedly, the 34-year-old actor/musician with five feet and seven inches (1.7 m) height is now on good terms with his past.
Net Worth From Career Now
The 90s marked Blake's foray into the world of acting. He was an elementary school student when he began his acting career with Full House.
Capitalizing God-gifted talents, he then went to star on several TV and movie projects such as The Nanny, Home Improvement, Tom and Huck, Minor Adjustments, and Raising Helen.
As a voice-over actor, Blake holds credits on Timon and Pumbaa, Tarzan, Hey Arnold!, Recess, and Father of the Pride.

His excursion in the show-biz has been a fruitful one. With over $300 thousand in reported net worth now, Blake is nowhere near being financially insolvent.
Per the 2013 report by E! News, the former Clueless star is now making a living as a vocal teacher.
Openly Gay Actor's Boyfriend
Fearing a backlash and blackballing, Blake hid his gay identity from the world. Admittedly, Go-Go dancing at gay clubs eventually gave him enough courage to come out in 2010.

His life as an openly gay man elevated when he began dating Emerson Collins. A fellow actor/producer, Emerson industry credits include appearances on FOX's Rent and BRAVO's The People Couch. The 2019 film, A Star Is Born, is his outstanding work as a producer.
Together since 2015, Blake and his boyfriend Emerson are relationship goals personified. Not only are they proud of their lifestyle, but don't mind flaunting each other on social media.
