Bill Kottkamp is an up-and-coming talent in the film and television industry who kills it as Derrick on the second season of Pen15.
Following the series premiere on Hulu on 3 December 2021, find out all about this “Chill Trill” actor/comedian in this Bio.
Bill Kottkamp As Derrick On Pen15
Pen 15 is an American cringe comedy streaming television series starring Maya Ishii-Peters (actor Maya Erskine) and Anna Kone (actor Anna Konkle).
After joining the set crew for the middle school play, Anna’s character meets mysterious high school freshman Steve (actor Chau Long), who supervises the crew. This happens in the first part of Season 2. The second part of Season 2 sees Anna and Steve’s relationship progress. Then is when Billa’s character (Steve’s arguably gross friend) is introduced on the show — as along with Maya, Derrick starts tagging along to the couple’s dates, making these two also become an item.
While Anna and Steve have real feelings for each other, Derrick has become “naive” Maya’s boyfriend for all the wrong reasons.
So, we can say Derrick goes on to become the most despised character on the show. But, this certainly does not stop actor Bill Kottkamp from nailing everything about his shabby character.

In October the same year, Bill took to his Twitter to wish the same Mary on her Birthday, writing — “This is Mary Neely she is very sweet and beautiful. It was her bday in April but we are celebrating it in October and it’s now her half birthday so it works out!”
With that being said, it was unclear if they were/are in a relationship.
