The Joey Awards have been established to recognize young performers in Canada through awards, and educate their parents on keeping their young performers safe in the crazy world of Showbiz.” The Joey Awards goal is to reward young actors and actresses in Canada for their hard work and dedication to their craft.

William has received other award nominations for ‘Seed’ including a 2014 Leo Award nomination for best performance in a Comedy, Variety or Musical www.leoawards.com and his 2013 Actor nomination for the ‘BEST NEWCOMER’ category for the UBCP/ACTRA Awards (www.ubcp.com).  ‘Seed’ stars a talented ensemble cast headed by Adam Korson (2 Broke Girls).

It was clear after booking his first two auditions that acting for William was a path well chosen. William’s very first attempt at acting was a success, when he landed his first audition in an open casting call for the feature film Hidden’. William was successful in landing the role of Joey, a slightly shy and soulful boy and close friend and neighbor of Zoe’s (Emily Alyn Lind). The feature film, which follows a family hiding in a bomb shelter after a mysterious outbreak devastates civilization, stars Alexander Skarsgard (True Blood, Battleship) and Andrea Riseborough (Oblivion, Never Let Me Go). The film Hidden, directed by The Duffer Brothers is slated for theatrical release.


William has a supporting role as Zach in ‘The Christmas Secret’, a Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Original World Premiere on Sunday, December 7, 9/8c starring Bethany Joy Lenz and John Reardon. http://www.hallmarkmoviesandmysteries.com/the-most-wonderful-movies-of-christmas/most-wonderful-movies William will also be seen in his Guest Star role as Melvin in ‘The Haunting Hour’ episode entitled Spores set to air on the new Discovery Family in November 2014.

Other recent highlights for William include playing the iconic role of John Darling in ABC’s ‘Once Upon a Time,’ and a major supporting role in ‘Zapped’ the television feature for the new Disney Channel starring the US pop music sensation and actor Zendaya.

Following in his parent’s footsteps (Nicole Oliver, actress; Chris Ainscough, composer/film editor), William Ainscough is making a serious impression in the entertainment industry. It was after watching his mother in action during visits to the sets of some of her film projects that William’s interest in the acting world began. Nicole inspired him to try acting for himself and began taking classes.  William has had the chance to act opposite his mother in several episodes of ‘Seed’, when she plays Billy’s teacher and principal, Mrs. Anderson.

Aside from acting, William is an accomplished drummer, loves soccer and baseball, and is a huge fan of the online game Minecraft.
