Ron Cephas Jones, who plays the role of William Hill on the popular television series ‘This Is Us’, recently talked about the emotional scene involving his character’s death on the show.

He stated, “From the beginning, I always knew [William] had cancer and was going to pass away.” The actor, however, expressed his satisfaction with the way his character had evolved over time before meeting his end in “Memphis.”

Jones mentioned that he was prepared to confront William’s death in the storyline, having worked on his character’s emotional depth. He said, “I look at each script like a blank canvas.
