Mini Bio (1)
Thom Williams was born on November 16th 1973 and grew up as a single child in the Midwestern town of Denton Texas. He played football for most of his young life until suffering a knee injury his senior year of high school, thus ending his time in the game he loved. He used his natural athletic ability to transition into NCAA collegiate cheerleading and gymnastics, where he won a national championship while going to the University of North Texas from 1992 to 1996. That in turn led him to a summer job in entertainment as a bad guy in the "Batman Stunt Show" at 6 Flags Over Texas in the summer of 1996. He knew then that he had found his calling, and the following summer moved to Hollywood where he began his career as a stuntman for film and TV after getting his SAG card as a guest star on the TV show "The Journeys of Allen Strange."
Thom has made a career of being the "big guy who could move" by learning and applying his physical prowess to varying fighting styles and reactions. His gymnastics background came heavily into play in being able to keep up with the smaller, faster fighters he faced on screen culminating in fighting his action idol Jackie Chan not once, but twice on the big and small screen. Along the way he also picked up regular stunt doubling jobs with almost every large actor in Hollywood, such as Greg Grunberg(Alias), Jorge Garcia(Lost), Eric Stonestreet(Various), and Ethan Suplee(My Name is Earl) just to name a few.
After hundreds of credits, and many years of ground pounding and pain, Thom has now made his way into the even more competitive field of stunt coordinating and 2nd unit directing. Being behind the camera has been a lifelong dream for Thom, as it lets him be a part of the creative process from day one. One of the areas that he specializes in is motion capture. Working in both feature films and video games, he has found a nice niche for himself in a newly formed industry that allows his creative energies to be expressed in ways that he only dreamed of as a child growing up watching Sci-Fi and action films.
While all of this success might be great, it would be meaningless without his greatest accomplishments: his wife Michelle and their 3 beautiful children.
