First of all, why don't you introduce yourself to those of us who don't already know you?

 

Hi there, my names is William Marshall and I'm a 19 year old actor from Derbyshire. I'm ambitious and enthusiastic and I strive to have unquestionable work ethic and commitment. I pride myself on maintaining a professional but friendly manner while working on my projects. I am a registered spotlight actor and also a member of Equity.

 

What got you into acting in the first place, and what can you tell us about your training as an actor?

 

At school my favourite subject was drama, it was also the subject I excelled at in GCSE year. I enjoyed the opportunities it created to explore my creativity and individuality, my drama teacher Tristan Weston said I had a real knack for the arts.

After completing my GCSEs I decided to pursue further studies in drama, and therefore enrolled in West Nottinghamshire College to study a national diploma in performing arts. My studies majorly consisted of the practice and learning of theatrical styles, techniques and their practitioners. We also briefly studied the basics of film and acting for camera.

I completed my level 3 diploma achieving the grade of treble distinction and pondering what the next step was for my future. After weighing up the options that were available I decided to re-enroll at West Nottinghamshire College and continue my education there. I am now studying a higher national diploma in performing arts, which will be the equivalent to my first two years of my degree.

 

Can you still remember your first time in front of a movie/TV camera, and what was that experience like?

 


My first time on camera was being an extra and doing fight stunts for Phil Gardiner's Dead Walkers: Rise of the 4th Reich [Philip Gardiner interview - click here]. To me it was like performing in the streets, but I felt an added pressure to deliver a good performance by the camera hovering around us during the fight choreography. It was an incredibly fun experience, both gaining experience in acting for camera and stunt fighting. That experience ignited my passion for film and TV acting.

 

Besides movies, you've also done quite a bit of stagework. So what can you tell us about William Marshall, the stage actor? And how does performing on stage compare to acting in front of a camera - and which do you prefer, actually?

 

I'm extremely passionate about theatre and I love performing on stage, whether it be Shakespeare or a musical. I believe theatre is where every actor truly learns their craft and discovers the possibilities that can come from a highly developed knowledge of theatrical performance.

For myself as an actor I find that the most important thing is creating an atmosphere than completely envelopes your audience and connecting with them as your character. That is perhaps my most favourite part of theatre, you don't have that natural atmosphere or adrenaline in film, or at least that's my opinion. I wouldn't say I had a preference as both styles bring me so much enjoyment, I can't help but love film and theatre equally.

 

Let's talk about some of your current/future projects and your roles in them for a bit:

Legacy of Thorn?

 

I have been extremely fortunate to have been part of brilliant productions recently, possibly the most memorable one was working on Legacy of Thorn, directed by Mj Dixon [Mj Dixon interview - click here]. I travelled with a few of main cast who are close friends (Craig Canning & Jane Haslehurst [Jane Haslehurst interview - click here]) and thanks to their recommendations I managed to land a small speaking role.

It was a totally new experience working on night shoots that would last hours, but the professionalism from the Mycho Entertainment team was second to none. They made me feel welcome straight away and I can honestly it was the experience of my career so far, so a big thanks to the Mycho gang.

 

Reinhelm?

 

I have had the fortune to land two main cast in two films this year, the first was James Colagiovanni's Reinhelm. It is a crime thriller in which the audience follow the story of lead characters and their gangs, constantly looking at different perspectives on the situations they find themselves in.

I was first to be cast in the film after providing my CV and following a short audition process in which I landed the role of Ricky Adams, the best friend of Reinhelm gang leader Jared. Unfortunately due to unseen circumstances the film's production has been postponed till next year, but I certainly cannot wait to get started, as I will be working some extremely talented and enthusiastic individuals on Reinhelm.

 

The Most Unusual Mr Wood?

 

Working with Who Productions has so far been an enjoyable and relaxing experience. The director Charlie Wheeler saw fit to grace me with the title role after I expressed my enthusiasm for being part of his latest production, which sadly has been postponed till a later date.

The Most Unusual Mr Wood is the story of my character Jacob Wood and his life in both the real world and a dimension created through his imagination - the question is which is which? It has certainly been one of my toughest challenges to date, but I am loving the journey that this character is being taken on.

It is a very special production as it pays homage to the company's previous creations and celebrates their 5th anniversary. The crew have been so kind and welcoming I am very much looking forward to end result.

 

Vamperior?

 

My latest stage production and a project in which I feel I have faced one the most challenging roles so far in my career. Written by Hayley Bristol and produced by A Prop Me Up Theatre Company, Vamperior is a town engulfed in a war between vampires and slayers and both are set on the annihilation of the other faction.

I was cast as male lead, Anthony Hall, a rogue vampire the only one true purpose that he will gladly die for to achieve. The role has been extremely physical and required a great deal of fitness and precise stage combat training due to the nature of the script. It has been a very different experience to my previous stage work and I cannot wait till we perform.

 

How would you describe yourself as an actor, and what do you usually draw upon to bring your characters to life?

 

As an actor I pride myself on impeccable character development. I utilise naturalistic techniques to aid in embodying my character physically and emotionally. I find that one of the most important things in my acting is to be completely immersed in the story yourself as your character, therefore, my performance shall hopefully become far natural and help immerse the audience in the narrative. I pride myself on being professional but ensuring I enjoy what I do and that my colleagues do as well, because what's life without a little fun?

 

Actors (or indeed actresses) who inspire you?

 

I could say some many astonishingly brilliant actors that have inspired to pursue my career, but perhaps the most inspirational are the likes of Meryl Streep, Ian McKellen, Leonardo Dicaprio and Johnny Depp.

It is their versatility to portray so many different roles and create such iconic characters that have stuck with me throughout my life. Films such as The Lord of the Rings trilogy have inspired to pursue fantasy, Sweeney Todd brought out my love for musical productions. These actors have inspired me to achieve my ambitions and that is to act for the rest of my life. I hope to inspire a new generation of artists, as well the dream of portraying my own iconic character someday.

 

Your favourite movies?

 

I'm mainly a massive fan of fantasy franchises, the most notable of all is The Lord of the Rings trilogy and most recently the Hobbit trilogy.

Speaking of more recent films I also have a soft spot for historical and documentary films. Two of the best films that I've enjoyed at cinemas were 12 Years a Slave and The Wolf of Wall Street. Both films heavily displayed the darker sides of human nature and I felt truly connected to the characters that were portrayed, specifically Solomun Northup played by Chiwetel Ejiofor, and I found it to be one the greatest performances by any actor I have ever seen.

I'm normally not one for speaking badly of films, but one of the biggest let-downs in my opinion was Michael Bay's Transformers franchise. The first film I enjoyed, a good cast, a decent plot and storyline and great effects.

As they progressed I felt the plots became far too shallow and slightly predictable and I was never really drawn either by the the main characters played by Shia La Beouf and Megan Fox. To me the films just relied on the special effects and battle scenes far too much, that's what ruined Transformers for me.

Anything else you are dying to mention and I have merely forgotten to ask?

 

Well I hope people have enjoyed getting to know more about me as an actor and person. I look forward to starting my next few projects with Darren Lynch and Lynch Films, unfortunately there aren't many details to share and, I hope to work with many more fantastic artists out there! 

Thank you for the interview Michael, it's been a pleasure!
