In the first film it is only mentioned, while in the two continuations it was played by the actor Stellan Skarsgård.
In the course of the story, Turner finds himself involved in a stormy and endless condemnation by Davy Jones, working and spending his immortal life aboard the Flying Dutchman, with the redeemed hope of someday ending his sentence.
The Curse of the Black Pearl
William Turner was once an English sailor, who left his wife and son, William Jr, on the English coast in search of better employment opportunities in the Caribbean.
For unknown and still unexplainable reasons, he becomes a pirate, at the same time that his son grows up with the ideal of becoming “a respectable merchant sailor” like his father.
“Bootstrap Bill” worked aboard the Black Pearl when it was commanded by Captain Jack Sparrow. However, during the betrayal riot led by Barbossa (with the intention of stripping Sparrow of the charge and seeking the Aztec gold on Death Island), Turner was the only one of the crew that was adamantly opposed to collaborating with his claim master plan, considering their acts as a violation of the honorable Pirate Code. Their loyalty did not do much for Barbossa to decline his goal, so Sparrow was left on a desert island while they and the crew embarked on a quest for Aztec gold.
When they found the immense treasure, they were provided with eternal immortality, and Will felt that they would be cursed for their actions against their former captain. In this way, he managed to send one of the coins to his son in England. For his misfortune he was moored in a canyon and thrown into the depths of the sea.
The Chest of Death
Bootstrap Bill appears in the Flying Dutchman as a servant of Davy Jones telling Jack Sparrow that he must serve his sentence. Bootstrap also tells Jack what happened after the mutiny and that he accepted a deal with Davy Jones to get him out of the depths of the sea. Bootstrap reappears when he reunites with his son Will, although at first they do not recognize each other and after Will being as a crew member of the Flying Dutchman did not secure a cannon in the middle of a storm, the punishment for such an error is 5 lashes on the back , Bootstrap decides to give him the 5 lashes to prevent his son from getting seriously hurt from the punishment, since as he says later “the boatswain boasts of ripping the flesh from the bone in every whip”. Will at first angry with his father, understands why he beat him while his father says he accepted his deal with Jones and whose disadvantage of 100 years of service was the oblivion of the past life. Bootstrap asks his son to flee, but he replies not to leave without the key of the chest.
Soon William Jr observes a game of dice and decides to bet his life of service in exchange for the key. Naively Bootstrap joins the game and ends up losing although he realizes that Will only bet to know the hiding place of the key. Once William Jr steals from Jones, Bootstrap gives him a knife to stab the heart making him promise to save him from his debt. But Bootstrap loses his hope when he sees that Davy Jones calls the Kraken to sink the Edinburgh Trader under Captain Bellamy knowing that his son was there, Davy Jones orders liquidate the survivors to see that among them is not William Jr and imprison Bill Turner for his betrayal. But Jones does not realize that William Jr survives and sets course on Cruces Island.
At the end of the world
Bootstrap still remains as a crew member of the Flying Dutchman and suddenly becomes part of the ship according to the curse that “part of the crew, part of the ship” had. Bootstrap meets his daughter-in-law Elizabeth and the crew of Sao Feng who had been captured by the Dutchman on the orders of Lord Cuttler Becket and learns that his son Will is alive but that in his duty to rescue him from Jones he would separate him from Elizabeth and know that Will will choose her. For his part, Admiral James Norrington helps Elizabeth and her crew escape, but that costs her life at the hands of Bootstrap who, seeing the flight, alerts the ship.
During the battle between the Flying Dutchman and the Black Pearl, Bootstrap forgetting his son confronts him, but Will is killed by Davy Jones and Bootstrap attacks his captain by avenging his son, while Jack helps the dying Will. to stab Jones’ heart by killing him; Then Will becomes the new captain of the Flying Dutchman, recovering the humanity of the crew, including his father. Once the battle with the Black Pearl is won, Bootstrap, still wanting to be part of the crew, is put to the ship helmsman while his son consummates his marriage with Elizabeth and 10 years later returns with her, only to visit her and meet her son, he must comply with the rule: For every 10 years at sea, could only be 1 day on land.
