Why Can’t We See Billy In Movies Nowadays?

Billy had a great career in the early 90s and 80s, but his career began to fade after the 90s. 

He made his appearances in many TV shows, but none of them worked out for him. 

In 2010, he had a promising role in the show The Deep End, but the show got cancelled after six episodes. 

In 2016, he was in a series named ‘Guilt’ where he played the role of a lawyer. 

But the series went off the air after one season. 

He also played an important role in the Amazon originals series Mad Dogs but his role was too short for the screen as he died in the first episode. 

His efforts in the TV industry had gone in vain.

After giving half of his life to acting, he entered the field of directing and producing. 

He was also busy collaborating with KFC for their advertisement campaign. 

Now, he is ready to make a comeback as he has many projects lined up for release.

Billy Shared His Experience Of Being On the Titanic

From the first day of the shoot, it felt that Titanic was more than a movie as moviemaking designed a city to make a film. 

From production to design, everything was top-notch. Even industrial engineers were hired to build a set for the movie. 

They even built a ship of real size. It was a 3D movie, so  when he watched it, he was completely blown away by the performances in the 3D version. 

He talked about his character Cal which he portrayed in that movie. 

He had fun playing the character as his role was exciting, and Cal had a great sense of humor. 

Billy Showed His Wallet In An Interview

There was a credit card and passport. He did not carry cash with him as he would lose his wallet someday. 

He also has a stamp on his face to send mail. Then the rest of them were all his business cards.
