Wyatt is also a musician. He did his own singing and guitar playing in the indie comedy Folk Hero & Funny Guy. “We did everything live,” he said. “I’ve always loved music. It’s been a big part of my life. The guitar, anything with strings. That’s a large part of who I am as well. I sort of kept it in the basement for a long time when I was playing hockey.”
Like Goldie and Kurt did while filming Swing Set in 1983, Wyatt found love on set. By his side in Maui was his actress girlfriend Meredith Hagner, who he met while they were shooting Folk Hero & Funny Guy together. The two couldn’t be cuter hanging with Goldie during the festival’s opening night festivities at the Grand Wailea resort.
“You can bond over certain things and you understand each other in certain ways,” Wyatt said of on-set romances. “Hopefully that can transcend other parts of life when you get off set…I think for us it does.”
