Mr. Willy Adkins is an American actor, director and producer. He is the owner of Breaking Fate Entertainment (formerly known as Spook Show Entertainment) and is a "jack of all trades" in the entertainment industry. He is also known for his work in paranormal investigation, founding Illinois Ghost Hunters back in 2006, which has taken him all over the country.

Willy has a lifelong passion of dark arts and photography, founding Deviant Desires Photography in 1996, and also does alternative model portfolio production and horror themed art. Today, Willy stays busy directing, producing, writing and acting in independent film, winning a best actor award in the film Gordon Finn at the Smokey Night Film Festival in 2015.

Willy resides in Dekalb, Illinois, often traveling to his second home, Gatlinburg, Tennessee. He is the proud father of two girls, Dixie Belle and Bethany Madison. He spends his free time working on his personal art, collecting weird antiques, oddities, and sideshow memorabilia, as well as touring various shows and conventions.

Director Statement

My purpose with "What Do I Say?" was to bring together several very talented filmmakers who normally work and have built a name for themselves in the horror genre to do a romantic comedy for the first time. This short is the result of that effort and we do hope you enjoy "What Do I Say?".
