Bill Young is one of Australia's most experienced character actors with over 20 feature films under his belt, a wealth of television experience, an impressive array of theatre credits, and is one of Australia's premier voiceover artists.

He also directs (film, theatre and television) and his feature film, "The Roly Poly Man" and is available on DVD. "The Roly Poly Man" picked up a number of international film festival awards, most notably the Vincent Price Audience Award at XVth Fantafestival (Italy).


Bill has just wrapped filming on the feature film DROWN directed by Dean Francis. In recent times he appeared as Sir Llew Edwards in the critically aclaimed mini-series DEVIL'S DUST, documenting the James Hardie asbestos scandal. He shall also be seen mid 2013 in Baz Luhrmann's exciting production of THE GREAT GATSBY. His scenes were shot in the fabled Valley of the Ashes.

Bill was also spied on TV in A MODEL DAUGHTER and the Hanks/Spielberg produced mini-series "THE PACIFIC" playing the role of Lt Col McMaster. Other screen work includes 'Emergence', 'The Pacific', 'Superman Returns', 'Japanese Story', 'You Can't Stop The Murders', 'Chopper', 'The Nuggett', 'The Matrix', and 'The Road to Nhill' as well as the dramatised doco "The Bridge" playing the role of Jack Lang which won the Logie Award for Best Documentary in 2008. He has also had the honour of working as a SpFX assistant, blowing wind on Wookies in the latest Star Wars epic, "The Return of the Sith". Not a lot of actors can claim that dubious pleasure!

CURRENTLY
The big news is that Bill is now represented for all his acting work by Katherine and Eloise at Creative Management in Sydney. He still retains Jules and the gang at RMK for all his Voice Over work.

He also played bass for the second year in the Stanley Steamers, the house band for the Black + White Artists Awards night in 2012 (and had the wonderful pleasure of jamming for a while with the legendary artist/musician, Reg Mombassa!)
