Blake Tuomy Wilhoit and Dylan Tuomy Wilhoit are American actors and twin brothers, famous for their roles as the little twin brothers Nicky and Alex Katsopolis in the popular 80’s and 90’s sitcom “Full House” that ran for eight seasons.
Early lives of Blake Tuomy Wilhoit & Dylan Tuomy Wilhoit
The twins were born on November 29, 1990, in Los Angeles, California. An interesting fact is that Blake Tuomy Wilhoit is 19 minutes younger than Dylan Tuomy Wilhoit. Their parents are Karen Tuomy and Jeff Wilhoit, an award-winning foley artist (the sound technician who creates all the sounds) involved in numerous movies and TV series. They have a cousin Lisa Wilhoit who is also an actress, known for her role on the short-lived series “My So-Called Life”.
Given the family’s connections with TV and movie business, it didn’t take much for Blake Tuomy Wilhoit and Dylan Tuomy Wilhoit to enter the acting scene. The twins appeared (to say they were acting would be a bit of a stretch) on a hit ABC sitcom “Full House” when they were two years old. They portrayed the characters of Nicky and Alex Katsopolis, the twin sons of Jesse and Rebecca. Initially, Katsopolis brothers made their debut in season five and were at first played by a different pair of twin actors. In season six, Blake and Dylan Tuomy-Wilhoit succeeded the roles of the twins and stayed with the show until it ended in 1995. The twin brothers were always a beloved sight on the screen and fans thoroughly enjoyed seeing the two grow up on the show.
Perhaps somewhat surprisingly, the twins immediately stopped acting after “Full House” got canceled. Both brothers attended the John Burroughs High School in Burbank, California, where they both graduated (Blake Tuomy Wilhoit in 2010, Dylan Tuomy Wilhoit in 2009). However, Dylan Tuomy Wilhoit is following his father’s footsteps as a foley artist for the past three years. He is quite good too, receiving two Emmy Awards for Outstanding Sound Editing for a Series along with his fellow crew members, for their work on TV series “Game of Thrones” and “Black Sails”. He also has three Emmy nominations and two awards handed by the Motion Picture Sound Editors of the USA for Best Sound Editing.
Even though “Full House” was a major success and provided the twins a great start for their acting careers, both Blake Tuomy Wilhoit and Dylan Tuomy Wilhoit opted for a normal life, away from the TV screens. Blake has relocated to Atlanta, Georgia where he works as a firefighter in a local station. He has interests in music and plays several different instruments in his spare time. Meanwhile, Dylan Tuomy Wilhoit has found his calling behind the camera as he works as a sound-maker for various television series and films. Due to the nature of his work, he stayed in California and now lives in San Fernando Valley. His Twitter profile states that he is a vegan.
Tuomy Wilhoit brothers have the same height, which is 5′ 11″ (1.8 m). Their full birth names are Blake Anthony Tuomy Wilhoit and Dylan Clark Tuomy Wilhoit. Blake’s nickname is Sparky while Dylan sometimes goes by the names of DC Wilhoit and Dylan T. Wilhoit.
What Blake Tuomy Wilhoit & Dylan Tuomy Wilhoit are up to now
Both Blake and Dylan recently made a guest appearance in “Fuller House”, a spin-off series based on “Full House”. The spin-off is created and executively produced by Jeff Franklin for Netflix, the original creator of “Full House”. They appeared in the first episode of the new show, as well as in the ninth episode of the first season. As of now, it is unknown if there are any plans for further involvement in the series.
It seems their appearances in the revival show haven’t brought back the urge to act again as it was a special occasion, a one-off. The twins are not up to anything spectacular these days as the lead rather normal lives. Blake Tuomy Wilhoit is handling his firefighting duties on a regular basis, while Dylan Tuomy Wilhoit is continuing his work as a Sound Department technician for various shows and movies, most notably for the super-successful series “Game of Thrones”. Both are very fond of social media, frequently connecting with their followers on Instagram and Twitter, sharing their daily exploits. Fans wanting to keep up with the two would do best to follow them there as it seems we won’t be seeing the twins on TV and movie screens for quite some time, if ever.
