William Fichtner’s face is known to anyone, although his name is not so catchy. He was raised in Long Island, New York, and enjoyed Broadway shows from his earliest years, but had never thought about becoming an actor himself.
William entered Farmingdale State College, where he studied criminal justice and took drama class just because he was short of fine arts course.
Then-girlfriend gave Bill a book “How to be a Working Actor” and he read it from top to bottom. After that Fichtner entered American Academy of Dramatic Arts in order to become a professional actor.
