Thom Williams has been a professional stunt coordinator, second unit director and stunt performer for 20 years. He has worked in a variety of capacities in the industry, playing many a bad guy and doubling dozens of actors throughout his career in television, film and motion capture. Williams is also a member of the International Stunt Association, a veteran fraternal organization of stunt coordinators and second unit directors, where he has served on the board and even it's president several times.

For the Television Academy, Williams has served previously on the Stunts Peer Group Executive Committee; he also has experience at SAG, having served on the Performance Capture National Committee and the Interactive Media Negotiating Committee.

Williams has over 200 credits in television, film and motion capture, including The Walking Dead, Supergirl, Jason Bourne, Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2, Lost, My Name Is Earl, The Book of Eli, Unstoppable, Transformers, 24, Invictus, Hereafter, Revolution, Halo 4 & 5, The Amazing Spider-Man 1 & 2, and is the current stunt coordinator on The Punisher for Marvel/Netflix.

While performing and ground pounding are still an amazing facet of his job, Williams has found an increased passion in choreographing and directing the action, which allows him to be a more creative part of the production process.
