Avid Exposure, a full service public relations/marketing agency, has been retained by new client William “Billy” Marquart. The newest heartthrob on the Hollywood scene, Billy is not only a rising actor he is also an international supermodel. Most recently, he was chosen as the 2008 new face of Abercrombie and Fitch campaign and is currently spearheading a national Chevy commercial airing throughout the United States.
Billy has recently wrapped his first feature film, directed by OSCAR award winning director Roland Joffe, titled “You and I”, starring Mischa Barton. In addition to films, he has multiple editorial spreads under his belt including Arena, Details, Engine, Macy’s and Sak’s Fifth Avenue catalogues making Marquart extremely diverse and multifaceted.

Hailing from small town Quincy, Illinois, Billy is now making his dreams come true. For the past three seasons, Billy has appeared on the hit reality television series “The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency” on Oxygen Network. Dickinson casted Billy on the show because she believes he has all the makings of a true star. “Billy has universal appeal, I'll put in Tom Cruise, I'll put in Collin Farrell, I'll put in Mark Wahlberg, he is all of these wrapped up in one,” says Janice Dickinson during season one.
“I love acting because it gives you the freedom to briefly escape from the real world and bring characters to life. My goal is for my work to be motivating and inspiring. Five years from now, I want to be known as a good actor and more importantly a good person,” states Marquart. You can watch Billy on season three of The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency on the Oxygen Network every Tuesday at 10 P.M. (PST)
