Wimpy kid Greg Heffley’s best friend Rowley has given friendship a cool and solid splash since appearing in author Greg Kinney’s “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” book series and movies.
Rowley played by Robert Capron is an epitome of an ideal best friend. He’s played the role in all 3 movies of the “DIARY OF A WIMPY KID”. As a parent-abiding teen, Rowley leads his best friend Greg Heffley with their other friends out of trouble in and out of school. He takes in all the fun with a wise twist to keep out of the punishment radar from parents and school authorities alike.
In the movie “Diary of a Wimpy Kid 3: Dog Days,” the filmmakers and writers based the story from Kinney’s third and fourth books – The Last Straw and Dog Days.
Robert Capron again brings his signature charm to the role of Rowley. “He walked in and he was Rowley,” producer Brad Simpson remembers of Capron’s audition for the first picture. “He has a huge heart, is excited about life and the world, and has some of the same qualities that Rowley has.”
