Did You Know?
The greatest thing that ever happened to me in terms of my acting was the audition for To Live and Die in L.A.
(1985). After I read, William Friedkin
put down the script and said, "You got the part". I really thought it was a joke. I went back to my hotel room and took a bath and they called and wanted to make a deal. I still didn't believe it.
William's paternal grandfather, Jurgen Petersen, was born in Germany, to Danish parents, Andreas Christian Petersen and Anna Margaretha Ericksen. William's paternal grandmother, Lizzie Ricksher, was of German and French ancestry, while both of William's maternal grandparents, Arthur Cornelius Hoene and Katherine Vera Vollmar, were of German descent.
