Early childhood and life before fame
Victor was born in Brooklyn, New York. He’s said that his childhood has been good, and he is grateful to his parents for all the hard work they had put in to make it a reality. Victor attended Midwood High School, where his height played an important role in playing the power forward position on the school’s basketball team. Later on, Victor attended the Binghamton University for his college degree in Upstate New York. He has also received a Master of Fine Arts degree for acting for the New York University’s Graduate Acting Program (he attended the Tisch School of the Arts).
Williams has appeared in a real bundle of roles, having been credited more than 40 times, making him a true veteran actor by this point.
His first credit role was as the Little Creature in 1985s Boggy Creek II: And The Legend Continues, the role didn’t truly catapult his career off, and it was more than a decade before Williams got another chance to act, but then in 1996, his career truly took off after he played Robbie in the 1996 movie The Preacher’s Wife, while also appearing in an episode of Homicide: Life on the Streets as Ishmael Alh-Hadj in the 1996 episode Scene of the Crime.
These were his breakout roles, and he truly received plentiful offers to play various characters from there on out, appearing in a new role pretty much every year.
