Alexis Denisof (born February 25, 1966) is an American actor best known for playing Wesley Wyndam-Pryce in the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its spin-off Angel.

Wesley's character was first introduced in Buffy the Vampire Slayer season 3 as Buffy Summers' replacement Watcher. After Buffy parted ways with the Watchers' Council, Wesley was out of a job. He later showed up on Angel, and became a regular character in that series from episode 11.
