American actor Austin Amelio rose to prominence after starring as Dwight in the sixth season of AMC post-apocalyptic series The Walking Dead.

Recognizing his talents and popularity, in 2019, AMC announced that Austin, Texas-native was joining the cast of Fear the Walking Dead. With that, he became the only second actor to crossover on the network's prequel. 

Does Austin' off-screen persona mirror that of his on-screen one? Read along to learn about his personal life & net worth! 

Parents, Height & Weight

Born on 27th April 1988, Austin's parents were from Austin, Texas. Though very little information is present on The Walking Dead star's upbringing and family background, it's safe to assume that he had a pretty normal childhood.

An avid skateboarder since school days, Austin - now age 30 - stands at the height of five feet and 11 inches (180 cm). Meanwhile, he boasts little above 165 pounds in weight.

Inside Austin Amelio's Net Worth

In 2010, Austin debuted via a short film Potluck, portraying the role of Vincent Lowe.

A year later, he filmed The Devil's Toy - a movie depicting skateboarding scene in his hometown. Following its release, he landed sponsorship deals with No Comply Skate Shop, Osiris and Karl Watson's Organica. 

Following his aspiration, Austin moved to LA somewhere in 2015 to audition for the comedy film, "Everybody Wants Some." Within weeks of reaching Hollywood, he got the most significant break of his career after landing a role in The Walking Dead.

Nothing has been the same for the 30-year-old actor ever since - something that gets reflected in his multi-million net worth.

Is Austin Amelio Gay?

While his portrayal of Dwight garnered fanfare and recognition, his role came with its qualms.

Because of his character's budding "on-screen bromance" with Daryl Dixon (played by Norman Reedus), fans began to speculate - and wish, in most cases - that he might be a closeted gay.

To their dismay, the writers at The Walking Dead never explored the gay dynamics between his and Norman's characters. And before they knew it, Austin got written off the show.

Married With Wife Or Dating?

Away from his on-reel dating life, Austin is a married man. His wife - whose identity remains a mystery - remains his number one supporter.

Not surprisingly though, the Potluck star and his wife were a married item long before the former announced his arrival in TV. The blissful duo probably met in Austin's hometown and began dating, before tying the knot.

The 30-year-old actor and his mystery wife welcomed their first bundle of joy in 2014. Since becoming a dad, he has gone vegan upon his son's advice. In The Walking Dead though, actress Christina Evangelista (Sherry) played Austin's wife.
