An interview with the ever talented and amazing new actor, Bill Housekeeper.
How and when did you first get into performing?
I have been acting since I was young. I have always known that I wanted to act and started taking classes in Junior High.
Who were some of your biggest inspirations?
There is a long list of people who inspire me. People who work hard always stand out in the crowd. I also like people with great stories to tell. These are also the kinds of people I like to meet because they have so much to offer an actor because of their stories and listening to how they go about their lives.
What kind have training have you done?
I'm a Meisner trained actor from Playhouse West. I had the some amazing teachers there, including Jeff Goldblum.
What has been your favorite role to play so far?
I recently did a film called Let Me Out where I played an alcoholic reporter looking for information about how his daughters were killed. The role was very interesting and Max was a unique character with a lot going on in his head.
What projects do you have coming up?
I have two horror films coming up that will be shot this summer. One where I will be playing the killer and another where I will be playing a scientist with a run of bad luck. Both should be entertaining and I'm looking forward to starting on them.
Who would be your ideal co-star and why?
David Strathern. Many people do not know who he is, but I had the opportunity to be on set with him when he was filming Good Night, Good Luck with George Clooney. David's way of capturing a character was amazing. There are many actors who I think you learn from just by working with them.
What are your plans for the future?
To learn from people as much as possible. To meet as many people as I can and to listen to who they are. I always like to learn about different cultures.
What is your advice to aspiring performers?
Keep it up. Yes, the business is hard, but don't be afraid to blaze a new trail to help you stand out from the crowd. Just remember to always be true to yourself and keep faith in what you are doing.
