INTRODUCING WILL POSTON
Born in Texas, Will Poston has deep roots in the South yet, with a U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonol as his father, he grew up as a military brat, living in six different states and two different countries by the age of ten. Always “the new kid on the block”, he faced the challenge of having to make new friends. His favorite escape was his imagination … and the movies. Until age four Will spoke almost exclusively in movie dialogue, so it was no surprise to his parents when he told them he wanted to be an actor.
At age nineteen, in North Carolina, he took an acting class and was hooked. He was cast as the lead in the play “Picnic” and won an award for “Most Outstanding Debut”. His next role was Brick in “Cat On A Hot Tin Roof”, a part made famous on screen by Paul Newman, and Will’s performance garnered him an award for “Outstanding Male Actor”.
The move to New York was inevitable. Will was invited to study at the prestigious Neighborhood Playhouse, two-year full time conservatory. Signed by an agent, Will immediately began working professionally, primarily on stage, but also in soaps (“As The World Turns” and “The Guiding Light”) and indie films.
Yet, the more interested Will became in film and television over the stage the more intense the pull was for him to move to Los Angeles, which he did a few months. He recently landed a role in the new Killers music video. He loves California and he figures on staying a while.
