First-born son of actor sensation Martin Sheen, Emilio Estevez got his first taste of cinematography shooting Super 8 films with his brother Charlie and friend Sean Penn. In 1982, he made his motion picture debut in “Tex” and, the following year, starred in Francis Ford Coppola’s “The Outsiders.” Becoming one of Hollywood’s most desirable young actors, he starred in the 1984 film “The Breakfast Club,” making him an icon among teenagers. In 1986, at age 23, he wrote the screenplay for “Wisdom.” Making his directorial debut with the film, Estevez became the youngest person to ever write, direct and star in a major motion picture.
