William was a character actor whose popularity was due to hundreds of appearances in soap operas. Going from the stage to the screen, William had an undistinguished movie career in the 40's which ran out of steam after about four years. But in the 50's, he would find his calling on the small screen. On "Young Dr. Malone" (1958), he played the father for five years. He was also cast in "Another World" (1964), "The Edge of Night" (1956), "Search for Tomorrow" (1951) and "A World Apart" (1970). One note worthy credit was that he was part of the continuing cast on the first hour long Television drama series "The Mask" (1954). By the 70's and 80's, he appeared in a number of Television Mini-Series and Television Movies. On the stage, he appeared in plays by Eugene O'Neill and Edward Albee.

  • He appeared in many adaptations of/and original plays on TV during the Golden Age of Television, including an adaptation of "Arsenic and Old Lace" in which he played Mortimer Brewster, the role that 'Cary Grant' (qv) played in the 1944 film version. To many modern viewers, he is primarily known as a soap opera actor.
  • His best film role was as Christian de Neuvillette in the 1950 film version of _Cyrano de Bergerac (1950)_ (qv), starring 'JosÚ Ferrer (I)' (qv) in his Oscar-winning role as Cyrano.
