Bill Ward has been a professional actor across TV and Theatre for over 15 years. He lives in Bristol with his partner and two young daughters.
On TV, Bill is probably best known for his work on two of the country’s leading Soaps. He has just finished 3 years on Emmerdale, playing the well meaning but pretty hopeless farmer James Barton (Ross, Pete and Finn’s Dad) for over 300 episodes, who sadly met a rather gruesome, if accidental, death at the hands of his emotionally volatile partner, Emma, in one of the Soap’s biggest storylines of the year.
Previously, he played the rather nasty builder Charlie Stubbs in Coronation Street, also for 300 episodes, who also remarkably met a rather gruesome, if accidental, death at the hands of his emotionally volatile partner, Tracy, in one of the Soap’s biggest storylines of the year. He’s a bit worried about doing any more of these kind of jobs…
He’s also done a fair amount of other TV/Film including: Silent Witness, True Crime, Casualty, The Great Ghost Rescue, Tangled (CBC Canada), Doctors, The Bill, Robin Hood, Midsomer Murders, Heartbeat, Cold Blood, Fallen, Holby City, EastEnders, Swag, Seven Stories, Jonathan Creek, Footballers’ Wives, Rose and Maloney, In Deep, Make My Day.
Though well known for his TV work, Bill is no stranger to the stage, and has worked on everything from Sophocles to The Spice Girls at Bristol Old Vic, Manchester Royal Exchange, Northern Stage, Clwyd Theatr Cymru, and The National Theatre Studio amongst others. He’s played Prospero in The Tempest in Guildford, Lancelot in Spamalot in the West End, and Kevin the Gnome in a muddy field in Glastonbury.
