“Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.”
– Ernest Hemingway

William Ford Hopkins was born in Vancouver and has been working locally for the last several years.

Always having had a passion for story telling, he committed to a career in performance when he decided to apply to Studio 58 after graduating from Lord Byng for Theatre and Music.

Now several years since graduating the program, he has starred in a number of local musicals garnering him a series of Best Actor Ovation Award Nominations and one win for Outstanding Newcomer in 2014. More recently he played the title role in Robinson Crusoe + Friday with Axis Theatre which earned him a Best Actor Jessie Nomination and a Canadian Tour of the same show.

Always looking to learn new things, William has trained in dance, archery, swordplay, firearm safety, and most recently boxing. Fitness and health are important to him but he also enjoys playing video games in his spare time.

He lives and trains in Vancouver while he continues to work toward a career in film and tv.
