William subsequently directed three television commercials and starred in a television comedy pilot (Governance of Ireland from Newscheck), several shorts and two Irish feature films.

He also appeared in a television docu-drama (Treaty 22) and a German television drama series, filmed in Galway.

One of those shorts, Sonny, Mammy and Patch the Dog, was funded as part of an initiative by the Wexford County Council Arts Office in conjunction with Bodcii Film and directed by Screen Wexford.

It will be released in the coming weeks.

William has just completed a block of filming on ‘Centauri’, an Irish sci-fi feature film, directed by Wesley Grogan.

He plays Jacques Pierre, mission director of the European Space Agency. The cast also includes Tina Browne (Balbriggan), Aidan O’Sullivan and Baz Black (seen recently in KIN). Later this year he will shoot scenes for another thrilling Irish feature film by Sau Dachi, Suit Hung Tied Tongue.
