William Butler is an actor, writer, director, make-up artist, special effects technician and producer.


He is known for his characters being killed in many of the horror films that he appears in. He has starred in Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood as Michael, Night of the Living Dead as Tom, Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III as Ryan, and as Ben in two episodes of the television show Freddy's Nightmares. He has claimed to be upset with how the 4th and 5th Return of The Living Dead turned out.[citation needed]

William Butler grew up working the carnival circuit that his parents owned and operated. When asked about what got him into acting he replied:

Yes I wanted to work in show business and did work in show business like school plays and things around the age of 7. As I got older I did local theater. A huge turning point for me was when I was little and went to see the original Poseidon Adventure film , I remember getting really freaked out by it that the boat was turning upside down and people were dying. My parents explained to me that these people were pretending that it was not really happening. I was like you have got to be kidding me and I became obsessed with filmmaking. Between 6th grade and high school I made close to 30 films, I got into video production, story boarding, animation, sculpting and I became a hard core fan. I would write fake notes from my parents to the movie theaters so that I could get in to see rated R horror films. It really just took off from there.[1]
