"Bill is a non egotistical, considerate, able, disabled creative presence who is excited by every contribution he makes to a project - be it as a supporting artist in a prime time drama to a lead in short film or indeed a presenter in a documentary....I have to admit that the middle aged, northern, disabled guy has put more effort in to where he is now and deserves to be acknowledged as breaking through so many barriers"
Jules Hussey, Producer

"Bill is easy to work with, he turns up on time, he knows his lines, he helps the cast with less experience and most importantly he takes direction and feedback well. He was the Dad of the set that helped set the example of professionalism. He is also a kind, warm and positive person who understands the challenges
faced in productions. I feel Bills strongest contribution was in aidingour young lead actor and giving him something to bounce off and bring a scene to life and In viewing the assembly cut last week it confirmed this."
James Miskell, Producer/Writer
