William was asked to do his own horse riding stunts for this role due to his experience as a competitive horse rider. As an actor with a wide range of experience from Executive Producing to Acting in theatre and film, William has gained a great understanding of what it takes to put on a film project, and he aims to make a positive impact in the film industry.
“I believe that my role as an actor is to put myself in someones shoes, walk a day in their life, understand where they are coming from and to find out where it is in my life that I can relate to that character. The more life experiences I have, the stronger my passion for acting grows.” – William Lee

The Legend of Ben Hall
After two years running from the law, bushranger Ben Hall has gone into hiding, He is soon drawn back into bushranging by the reappearance of his old friend, John Gilbert. Reforming the gang and taking on a new recruit John Dunn, the trio begin a spree of robberies and crimes across New South Wales. After the killing of two policemen, the three become the most wanted men in colony.
When the Government moves to declare them outlaws that can shot on sight by any person who chooses, Ben Hall makes desperate plans to flee the colony. But with a such a large bounty on their heads, treachery abounds where they least expect it …
John Dunn (Played by William Lee)
John Dunn was an Australian bushranger. He was born at Murrumburrah near Yass, New South Wales. Dunn joined the Hall gang in October 1864, a welcomed new member after police captured gang members Dunleavy and Mount.
On 26 January 1865, Hall, Gilbert and Dunn were at Collector, where Dunn twice shot and killed the local police officer, Constable Samuel Nelson, the sole policeman in the township.
After Hall and Gilbert were killed, Dunn went into hiding. On 18 December, Dunn was betrayed by those he trusted and after a fight with police was wounded and captured near Coonamble.
He was 19 years old when he was hanged in Darlinghurst Gaol.

Creator/ Writer/ Director – “The legend of Ben Hall”
I have found William Lee to be a most committed and enthusiastic actor, one who takes time to research and explore his character to great depths. When acting he is focused and present, and his performances are always grounded, natural, and often understated. His manner on set in completely professional, and he takes the initiative to help in areas he is not required to, making him an asset to any film production.
