Thom Williams has been a stunt coordinator, second unit director and stunt performer for more than 17 years. He has worked in a variety of capacities in the industry, playing many a bad guy and doubling dozens of actors throughout his career in television, film and motion capture. Williams is also a member of the International Stunt Association, a veteran fraternal organization of stunt coordinators and second unit directors, where he has served on the board for several years.

For the Television Academy, Williams has served previously on the Stunts Peer Group Executive Committee; he also has experience at SAG, having served on the Performance Capture National Committee.

Williams has over 150 credits in television, film and motion capture, including Lost, My Name Is Earl, The Book of Eli, Unstoppable, Transformers, 24, Invictus, Hereafter, Revolution, Halo 4, The Amazing Spider-Man 1 & 2, and was the stunt coordinator on HBO's Hello Ladies and ABC's Trophy Wife.

While performing and ground pounding are still an amazing facet of his job, Williams has found an increased passion in choreographing and directing the action, which allows him to be a more creative part of the creative process.
