It’s this humility that strikes any interviewer or journalist who comes into contact with the new “thunder from down under” (our joke, not his).
“I think that a lot of my comedy strengths come from an ability to make fun of myself - and I’ve always been like that, so it’s cool to see that audiences are responding to it on a global level.”
Indeed, audiences have fallen in love with William at different iterations throughout his career. And at this point, with Entertainment LA interviewing him, he’s now in the iteration called ‘Hollywood.’
“I’m excited to start working on the American projects - unfortunately I can’t give details away just yet, but it should be a lot of fun.”
One of William’s key points of differences that has been consistent throughout all his different professional phases is his capacity to relate to any viewer or audience, big or small, at home or via the stage.
One of the first instances in which people responded to William was his ongoing role as Removalist Dwayne in the hilarious online series, “Movement,” starring “Sisters” actress Maria Angelico. That William has shared the screen with such luminaries as Angelico is not surprising when one evaluates the depths of his resume, which reveals multiple collaborations with a number of top-talent and multinational companies.
It’s all part and parcel of getting the job done, no matter how big the project.
“Even though people might say someone is “making it big,” it’s all an illusion,” William adds.
“Keep telling stories, making people laugh, and exploring different creative markets around the world. If I can keep doing that for the rest of my life I’ll be a very lucky person”
Be sure to check out William’s work online via YouTube and Netflix. You won’t be sorry you missed it. William certainly never is.
“I think it’s important for artists to be unapologetically themselves - viewers like that specificity.”
