HE’S AN ENGLISHMAN IN NEW YORK

“HE’S A UNIQUE ACTOR, A COMMITTED PRODUCER, AND A TRUSTWORTHY FRIEND” – AWARD WINNING DIRECTOR ANDY DELIANA

Will Parker

3 YEARS STUDYING FOR A DEGREE IN DRAMA, “NOW WHAT TO DO?” HE ASKED HIMSELF.

WELL FOR DRAMA GRADUATE WILL PARKER, HE HAD ALWAYS WANTED TO BE AN ACTOR, A PERFORMER, AN ENTERTAINER AND WHERE BETTER TO PURSUE HIS GOALS THAN ONE OF THE BIGGEST CITIES IN THE WORLD, THE BIG APPLE.

HE TOOK EVERYTHING HE’D LEARNT, FROM SHAKESPEARE TO IMPROV, CLOWNING TO STANISLAVSKI, DEVISED THEATRE TO VOICE AND MOVEMENT, AND HE AUDITIONED FOR THE NEW YORK FILM ACADEMY TO STUDY ACTING FOR FILM.

THE COMBINATION OF A 3 YEAR FULL TIME DEGREE AND A 1 YEAR INTENSIVE CONSERVATORY HAS NOW PUT HIM IN AN AMAZING POSITION, WITH AGENT AND MANAGEMENT REPRESENTATION IN ONE OF THE MOST COMPETITIVE CITIES OF THEM ALL. HE’S NOW ACTED IN OVER 30 SHORT FILMS, 2 FEATURE FILMS, AND A HANDFUL OF COMMERCIALS, BUILDING UP QUITE THE RÉSUMÉ AND GAINING VALUABLE ON SET EXPERIENCE. “MY ACTING HAS GONE FROM STRENGTH TO STRENGTH, STARTING OUT AS A CHILD, ACTING ALONGSIDE ROBSON GREEN AND STEPHEN TOMPKINSON, TO NOW LEADING FILMS TO FESTIVAL SUCCESS IN BOTH THE UK AND THE US.”. WILL ALSO STARTED WRITING AND PRODUCING, WITH ONE OF THE SHORT FILMS HE CO-WROTE, WORTH IT? HEADING TO CANNES INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL THIS YEAR.

HE IS ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING BRITISH PROSPECTS WE’VE SEEN IN NEW YORK. HE’S NOW WORKED WITH BUZZFEED, ONE OF THE LARGEST ONLINE PLATFORMS FOR NEWS, ENTERTAINMENT AND ADVERTISING, AS PART OF THEIR CAMPAIGN WITH SKY, FOR SKY GO AND SKY Q RACKING UP OVER 8 MILLION VIEWS. HE’S BUILT A RELATIONSHIP WITH BUZZFEED DIRECTOR RICHARD REID, AND WAS ALSO ASKED TO TAKE ON A SMALL ROLE IN HIS FEATURE FILM FRAT PACK, DUE FOR RELEASE LATER THIS YEAR.

REPRESENTED BY ALBERT BRAMANTE OF EMERGING TALENT, AND MANAGED BY DEBORAH DOTOLI OF AAG TALENT IN NEW YORK, WILL HAS BEEN LUCKY ENOUGH TO AUDITION FOR SOME AMAZING NETWORK SHOWS SUCH AS MADAME SECRETARY AND SUPERGIRL. HE PLAYS THE TITLE CHARACTER IN MARCELO MAYEN’S UPCOMING FILM BULLOCK THE BRUISER, WHICH HAS ALREADY BAGGED AWARDS AT THE LA CINE FEST AND THE MONTHLY FILM FESTIVAL TMFF. A GREAT SUCCESS CAME WITH ANOTHER OF HIS LEAD ROLES IN FRENCH DIRECTOR ANTONY RENAULT’S AN AMERICAN SHORT STORY WHICH HAS NOW RECEIVED AWARDS AT FESTIVALS IN ITALY, FRANCE AND THE US. WILL HAS NOW APPLIED HIS UNIQUE BRITISH ACTING SKILLS TO AWARD WINNING FILMS INTERNATIONALLY.

THIS WILL AIR ON TV NETWORKS IN COUNTRIES SUCH AS THE US, THE UK, CANADA, ALBANIA, SERBIA, MACEDONIA, AND ALL OVER SCANDINAVIA.

I ASKED HIM, WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN 5 OR 10 YEARS? HIS RESPONSE WAS DIFFERENT FROM ANY WE’VE HEARD BEFORE. “I SEE MYSELF SHOCKED AT HOW WRONG I WAS ANSWERING THIS QUESTION 5 OR 10 YEARS AGO! I CAN’T PREDICT THE FUTURE, AND I’D BE DOING MYSELF A DISSERVICE IF I TRIED TO LIVE 5 YEARS ON FROM NOW, I’M NOW MORE PRESENT THAN I’VE EVER BEEN, I LIVE MOMENT TO MOMENT, AND I’M EXCITED FOR WHATEVER THE FUTURE MAY HOLD.”
