Personality and Appearance
William is a man in his fifties. He is tall, with a lean built and thinning brown hair. Outside of his role in the pseudo-documentary, William was shown wearing semi-formal clothes and having a more a joyful personality when compared to Elias Cunningham, the character he portrayed in the show, who's a man driven mad by the supernatural and gruesome events at the Roanoke House.
William is a professional actor who, however, declined Sidney Aaron James' invitation to return on set to film the sequel. Thus, he's one of the few original cast members that doesn't die during the filming of the sequel to the critically acclaimed "My Roanoke Nightmare," called "Return to Roanoke: Three Days in Hell".
