William Aisncough has been nominated for the ‘BEST NEWCOMER’ category for the UBCP/ACTRA Awards for his starring role in CITY TV’s hit series “SEED”. The awards will be handed out in Vancouver on November 24th. The first season of “Seed” was hailed as both a critical and commercial success and has been picked up by U.S. network The CW.

William is currently filming the second season of “SEED” in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The series stars Adam Korson (from the CBS hit comedy 2 Broke Girls). Adam Korson plays a bachelor-bartender and sperm donor who becomes an overnight father to three different children. Adam begins his relationship with the families of his children: an upper-class family with a rebellious teenage daughter, a neurotically hopeful single mother-to-be, and a laid-back lesbian couple with a 9-year-old son Billy who is played by William.

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. William has had the chance to act opposite his mother, Nicole Oliver, in several episodes of the series, when she plays Billy’s teacher, Mrs. Anderson.

Nicole inspired him to try acting for himself and began taking classes. William’s very first attempt at acting was a success, when he landed his first audition in May 2012—an open casting call for a new feature film “Hidden”. 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). 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 film Hidden, directed by The Duffer Brothers, and is set to hit theatres late 2013, early 2014.

It was clear after booking his first two auditions that it was a path well chosen. William is thrilled to be able to add ACTOR, to his resume of accomplishments.

Other highlights for William this past year include playing the iconic role of John Darling in ABC’s Once Upon a Time, and a major supporting role in a “top-secret” television feature for the Disney Channel.

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