(he/they)

Will grew up in South West London, in the same suburb that both Keira Knightley and Julian Clary did; in many ways, he is their secret love child. Truthful and inventive with a touch of queer irreverence, Will is a multifaceted actor, comedian, writer and director.His work has been described as hilarious, enchanting, devastating, mildly amusing and rotten.
