At the age of 15, disguised with a false beard and with a fake ID and $15, William Forsche ran away from his Wisconsin home and hitchhiked to Hollywood. Forsche soon found work at Universal Studios Tour. It was there he met make-up artist David B. Miller who gave him insights to the business and a great deal of encouragement. At the age of 17, Forsche came home to Wisconsin to visit his family which led to work with Wisconsin director Bill Rebane. Forsche then went to New York and met with Dick Smith whom he had been corresponding with since he was 14. He provided fatherly advice, career encouragement and guidance. Forsche went back to Hollywood to continue his special effects make-up, and sculpting career. Forsche had also had on-camera roles, including a werewolf in Howling IV: The Original Nightmare (1988).
