Mini Bio (1)

Chase Williamson grew up in Southlake, Texas and started studying acting and comedy at an early age. In his youth, he received training at the Dallas Young Actors Studio and was heavily involved in theatre academically. He continued to further his training at the North Carolina School of the Arts summer session in 2005 before graduating high school and being accepted into the highly competitive BFA Acting program at the University of Southern California. There, Chase received four years of intensive training and appeared in over a dozen theatrical productions, including roles as Joe in Angels in America, Macheath in Beggars Opera, Burrs in The Wild Party and many more. He also was a member of USC's official improv and sketch comedy troupe, Commedus Interruptus. Upon graduation, Chase signed with Principato Young Entertainment and within a few weeks had booked the lead role in Don Coscarelli's John Dies at the End opposite Oscar nominee Paul Giamatti. His performance earned critical acclaim and the film went on to screen at Sundance, SXSW and the Toronto Int. Film Fest, among others, before being released by Magnolia Pictures in 2013. Since then, Chase has completed his second leading role in a feature film, Sparks, also starring his John Dies costar Clancy Brown, and appears on the blockbuster web series "Video Game High School" from Freddie Wong.
