William Kircher stars as Bifur / Tom Troll in Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" and "The Hobbit: There and Back Again."

William Kircher launched his acting career after graduating from the New Zealand Drama School. He worked extensively in theater throughout the country and over the next 20 years appeared in more than 100 professional theater productions. This was also the grounding for a long and successful film and television career that saw him holding a reputation as one of the most respected actors in the country.

Later in his career, Kircher also focused on production, working as a producer and communications executive with UK-based Cloud 9 Screen Entertainment. He was invited to head up Cloud 9's commercial division, where he produced an award-winning short film, as well as a range of corporate projects. In 2003, Kircher went into partnership to form production company ScreenAdventures, to develop and finance feature films. Before starting work on "The Hobbit" Trilogy, he line-produced a television docudrama, "The Investigator," for Red Sky Film & Television.

Kircher returned to acting in 2006, with a leading role in the acclaimed film "Out of the Blue," directed by Robert Sarkies, based on a true story of a massacre in the small seaside village of Aramoana. Kircher's career highlights also include national tours of John Godber's "Bouncers," and "Ladies Night"; the telefeatures "Gold" and "Valley of Adventure"; and three seasons starring as BP in the top-rated police drama "Shark in the Park."
