Starting out with parts in productions at a local theater company while still attending elementary school in his native Rhode Island, baby-faced young actor Robert Capron began appearing on the big screen in his tween years. After minor parts in the feature comedy "Bride Wars" and the canine-centric drama "Hachiko: A Dog's Story," both released during 2009, Capron made a huge career leap when he was cast as Rowley Jefferson, the best friend of awkward main character Greg Heffley in the Hollywood movie version of Jeff Kinney's best-selling children's book "Diary of a Wimpy Kid." Capron's performance as the endearingly immature Rowley garnered him considerable attention, and the youthful actor soon appeared in the big-budget fantasy film "The Sorcerer's Apprentice," starring Nicolas Cage and Jay Baruchel. In 2011, Capron reprised his role as Rowley in the well-received sequel "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules" and turned up in an episode of the horror-themed TV show "R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour" as a boy obsessed with tracking down a phantom ice-cream truck. Given the success of the "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" movies, Capron subsequently signed on to the third installment in the series, "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days."
