Categories:Actor of the Day, Blog, Featured

Today’s Actor of the Day is Spi, also known as William Worthington Spearman IV. While relatively unknown to the internet, due to having minimal presence, Spi is an actor whose life is inundated in musical theatre. According to the first blog entry, Spi’s father was part of the theatre department in Yokohama U.S. military base and Spi himself had even mentioned attending performances as a child. During a stay with his father in New Jersey, Spi had attended auditions for Broadway’s Elf: The Musical. Despite having failed, he was inspired from the comments given on said audition to take on the Japanese theatrical world and bring it to the world.
