Netherworld’s Roy Wooley Competes On Syfy’s ‘Face Off’
Consistently voted one of the top haunted houses in the country, Atlanta’s Netherworld employs some of the best talent in the industry and one of the hometown haunt’s best will compete on Syfy’s third season of Face Off!
Special-effects master Roy Wooley grew up in Goodsprings, Alabama, where his family hoped for him to choose a stable profession like preaching or coal mining. However, after sneaking into American Werewolf in London he fell in love with special-effects makeup and the creation of monsters. Since there were not any SFX schools for Roy to attend, he relied on tutorial videos, books and friends to learn more about the field. When he moved to Georgia, Roy took a job at Netherworld Haunted House as an actor. Over the years he has built up and now runs the makeup department at one of the country’s leading haunted houses. In his audition video, Roy says “people didn’t think I could make a living doing this. Well, it may have taken me 20 years, but I am making a living doing THIS.”
