BRYON

WILLIAMS

Ex- professional stage and screen actor, Director, Producer, Script Writer, Bryon Williams began his career trained by the late, Ms Jean Trundle, founder of the Brisbane Arts Theatre. After a while he found himself playing many leading roles and determined to make this his career. Eventually he was contacted by BTQ 7 and contracted to appear in their top rating, live to air, variety shows, George Wallace’s, Theatre Royal and Club 7 as a member of their comedy team. This was an entirely different kind of training which also involved singing and dancing, skills he was destined to use in his future career. After 2 years Bryon and his wife, Marie, moved to Melbourne to pursue their acting careers. Bryon auditioned for theatre and Television casting directors and was soon offered a role in the St. Martin’s Theatre Company production of, Joan Littlewood’s, Oh What a Lovely War, which enabled him to use the training he’d received in song and dance as well as drama. The show was an instant success and purchased by J.C. Williamson’s for a tour to Sydney with a return season in Melbourne. He continued working in St. Martin’s Theatre Productions with considerable success and was offered a contract with ABC Television for their popular series, Bellbird where he appeared as Adam Lockhart, the school teacher. He was also offered many guest roles with the popular, Crawford Productions stable of shows in series such as, Homicide, Division 4, The Sullivans, Ryan, Cop Shop, Matlock Police and many others. He appeared in a couple of movies at a time when very few movies were being done in Australia and won a role in Libido, which was purchased by the then British Empire Films and entered into the Tehran Film Festival as the Australian entry which Bryon was invited to and thrilled to attend. Back home he appeared with the famous Musical Comedy star, Jill Perryman, in her first straight stage role, The Two of Us, which was a huge success at St. Martin’s Theatre and both were recommended as best actor for that year. He later appeared with Jill for a guest role in her T.V. show, Perryman on Parade. Moving to Sydney Marie and Bryon decided to explore the Industry there. Bryon was offered a season of plays at the Killara Community Theatre and at the end of the season, was asked to audition for Harry M. Miller’s second production of the hugely successful, Boys in the Band, to tour the larger theatres of the East Coast playing the lead role of, Michael, to packed houses. After twelve years of marriage, Marie discovered to their delight, that she had fallen pregnant and in June, 1973, gave birth to their only child, Benjamin. The couple were ecstatic and purchased a one hundred year old Victorian cottage in Elsternwick to raise their new pride and joy. Shortly after Bryon and a business partner, America actress, Barbara Ramsay, decided to open a Dinner Theatre in South Melbourne, The Stage Door. They wrote and performed their opening show, Kiss Me Goodnight Sergeant Major to excellent revues and the show ran for over 2 years and was eventually purchased by the SA Arts Council for a South Australian tour which was a great success. Bryon was then contracted to appear in the semi regular role of Dr. Weissman, the Psychiatrist, in the hugely popular, Prisoner series and also wrote for the series for 2 years. They continued to run the Dinner Theatre for 8 years performing shows they had written and established plays. Finally Bryon was worn out and he and his family returned to the Gold Coast where he managed the highly successful, Dracula’s Cabaret Restaurant for 5 years and then joined Warner Bros Movie World as their Speech and Drama coach for their presenters. He also was employed by the Aust Film and Television Academy on the Gold Coast as a speech and Drama coach whilst doing a few guest roles for Village Roadshow Studios. His darling wife, Marie, suffered a severe stroke in 2000 and Bryon retired from the Entertainment Industry to be her sole carer for the next 14 years when sadly she passed away in 2014. Devastated from his loss after 54 years of marriage, he turned to writing novels to feed his need for creativity and continues to do so. Not a life for the feint hearted.
