After leaving school, William volunteered to join the RAF. “I was already by then going to Oxford. In those days we did a short course which was half the week. We were playing at being airmen and we were playing at being undergraduates the other three days.” Eventually he joined the RAF full time before returning to Oxford to take a degree in English, although he admits. “At that time I wasn’t really concentrating on the work but on theatrical activities. In my day Oxford had the OUADS- the Oxford University Amateur Dramatics Society, and there’s- I hope its still going- The Experimental Theatre Club. There was also organisations within each college that you could join. At the very beginning I didn’t do any acting; the first thing I did was direct a play for my college.” By the time he completed the degree, William had opted to try a career in acting- but he met with some resistance at home. “I had a terrible row with my father because I was going to be an actor and it was a great struggle.”
