Actor Aaron Williams Creates a Theatrical Cover With ‘The Emergency Exit’ From ‘Batman: The Killing Joke’

My name is Aaron Williams and I am an actor based in Toronto. I created this video in hopes to create something that is an original, unique way to get myself out there as an actor. If not for those reasons, to continue to practice the craft not only as an actor but as a filmmaker. In doing this why not tackle characters that are fun with material people, myself included, enjoy and can get behind.

I don’t think I’ve seen actors perform monologues in this fashion much. I like to call it a Theatrical Cover. As an actor in 2015, I think we have to try to think outside the box. I don’t believe we can sit back and do the same things that every actor and performer does, go to auditions and wait for our agents to call us with good news. And that’s if you have an agent.

I feel that if we want to work, we have to create our own work which seems to be the trend and one I hope to benefit from beginning with these Theatrical Covers.

This is the first but not the last.
