Rhys Williams leapt into a series of acting roles--in many cases, quite literally. The Canadian worked on various productions as a stunt man and an actor, and on numerous occasions combined both roles. He first appeared in the low-budget 1995 thriller "Man with a Gun," starring Michael Madsen as an assassin hired to kill the woman he loves. Following this appearance, Williams won a string of one-offs or small recurring roles in TV productions. These include "Highlander," an adaptation of the 1986 film of the same name about a race of eternal Scottish warriors, and a TV movie version of the classic Truman Capote true-crime drama "In Cold Blood," both released in 1996. The following decade saw Williams branching out into stunt work. His first stunt assignment was on yet another TV movie adaptation, "The Robinsons: Lost in Space" (2004), a re-imagining of the classic 1960s science fiction series. Following that, he stunt-doubled for star Nick Cannon in "Underclassmen," a mystery set in a private school. Williams spent the next years working as either a stunt man or an actor. He sometimes blended the two, in such efforts as the 2010 Greek myth update "Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief" and the phantasmagorical science fiction TV series "Fringe" (2010).
