Roy Wooley from "Face Off" is one of the contestants in Season 5 of the Syfy reality special effects make-up artist competition series. He previously competed in Season 3. He is a freelance special effects makeup artist, as well as the Chief Makeup Artist & Creature Designer for Netherworld Haunted House, with expertise in sculpting, prosthetics, airbrushing and fabrication. He is currently living in Tucker, Georgia.

Season 5

Roy Wooley never dreamed of being a special make-up effects artist when he grew up in rural Alabama; it wasn't the kind of work folks around there pursued. But once he saw "American Werewolf in London," he was hooked, and his career path was set. Work in the haunted house business lead him to season 3 of "Face Off," which in turn led to movie work; his most recent projects have been working on the horror features "Hell Hole" and "Copii: The First Entry."

Still, he's back for the new season, in part to showcase his growing skills and with the goal of making it to the very end this time. He hasn't entirely left haunted houses behind either. In a side business, he's designed a line of prosthetics and props for the haunted house industry that are now in production. His favorite movie with special effects remains "American Werewolf in London."

Season 3

Wooley grew up in Goodsprings, Alabama, where he attended the same high school as his mother. His mother and family hoped for Roy to choose a stable profession like preaching or coal mining. However, after Roy snuck 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, the local haunted house did not have a makeup department, so Roy took a job at the haunted house as an actor. Over the years, Roy has built up and now runs the makeup department at one of the country's leading haunted houses. In his off-season, he works for low-budget films.
