The spotting by one of his instructors for being the class clown, he was plucked into doing plays and the bug bit him hard, but with a plan of back up. His smarts landed him in premed and theatre studies at university where he graduated, and pursued his career.

Segment 2: The film Williams is working on is a horror genre full feature and he gets to play a part that he challenges himself with. “I play pretty nasty person”, he says. With the face and body of a model, this will be an interesting take on horror for sure. Williams grew up in Louisiana, city of Houma, not far from New Orleans, and he finds life there great for the start of his career.

Segment 3: Taylor shares a story from his past at a job in Burbank, Ca where he worked down the street from Warner Brothers studios. At the time the TV show E.R. was on and at lunch time George Clooney would bring some cast mates over to eat at the same restaurant our office dined at “The SmokeHouse”. Taylor then shares that to this day there is the George Clooney booth in the restaurant and that Clooney’s production company is called “SmokeHouse Productions”

Segment 4: William’s shares his story on landing the part, and having to drive 5 hours to set and while do so, prepared for the part. The actor’s energy and dedication to a role must come through “deconstruction” of the honesty in the character.  He shares advise for up and comers, and he shares that you can find him on all media platforms, including Imdb.com, Twitter, Instagram.
