Wilmer Valderrama

Fez has to be my favorite character of the whole of That ’70s Show. That best thing about Wilmer Valderrama’s character is the running gag on his home country and his name. Nobody knows where he’s actually from, and his name isn’t his name at all. It’s the acronym for “Foreign Exchange Student.” While his friends have learned what his real name is, the audience of the show was only ever told it was long and the “first five Ks are silent.”

One of the seven to make it through all 200 episodes (with some iconic scenes), it could have been hard for Valderrama to shake off the character. However, he has been one of the most successful actors since leaving the series. Immediately taking up roles in TV shows, movies, and shorts, some of his earlier well-known works would be Columbus Day and Days of Wrath. He was also in an episode of Wizards of Waverly Place and also dated Demi Lovato around this time.

Since then, he’s been in the likes of AwakeHanny Manny, and Raising Hope. He played Will Blake in the Minority Report TV series in 2015 and then landed an iconic and heartbreaking guest star role in Grey’s Anatomy in 2016.

You’ll be able to catch him now in NCIS. He joined the team in 2016 as Nick Torres and remains a cast member in 2023. He also appeared in four episodes of The Ranch and has starred in numerous NCIS crossover episodes. Valderrama reprises his role as Fez in That ’90s Show, appearing in three episodes.
