After signing with the talent agency Vertex Management Group in 2019, he left a message on his website telling his fans to check out his upcoming IMDB profile as he prepared to break into the acting industry.
Silk had an interest and passion for acting and modeling since his childhood. He began using TikTok just like most other teenagers: to have a few laughs with his friends. In an interview with Staff Writer Anna Woodward of his school's student news site in March 2019, Silk says, “It actually started between my friends as a joke, because everyone was making fun of it”. Silk created the handle @willyum0313 in January 2019.
His first post, followed the 'Pretty Boy Swag' trend that was very popular on the platform at the time, in which the user donned a certain look and compared it with a lookalike among celebrities or from popular media. As rapper Soulja Boy’s song 'Pretty Boy Swag' played in the background, he reorganized his hairstyle before cutting to an image of popular cartoon character 'Ben Ten', and captioned the post “#basicwhiteboy”.
He immediately got noticed on the platform, and gained a lot of fame after one of his videos, showing him lip-syncing to a clip by popular YouTuber Brandon Rogers, earned over 200k likes. He began to take things seriously after he gained 75 thousand followers, as well as over one million combined likes on his videos, within a period of about one month.
Silk later changed his TikTok handle, to @liamsilk, and started regularly posting funny videos inspired by his day-to-day interactions with friends and acquaintances. He hit 1 million followers on the platform by June 30, 2019, following which he also made a celebratory post on his Instagram thanking his fans.
