Michael K. Williams, who earned high recognition for his role as “Omar Little” on the TV series “The Wire,” has died, according to reports. New York Post.
He is 54 years old. The actor was found dead by his nephew, the police informed the newspaper. The cause of death is not yet known.
An insurmountable loss
It is with great sadness that the family announced the death of Emmy-nominated actor Michael Kenneth Williams. A representative for Williams told The Hollywood Reporter that they are asking for privacy while mourning this insurmountable loss.
It was recently announced that Williams has been given the role of mentor and coach to boxing superstar George Foreman. The actor has been nominated five times for an Emmy, including for the HBO series Lovecraft Country.
He also gained recognition for his role as Chalky White in “Boardwalk Empire”.
Williams leaves behind his son Elijah Williams.
One of the amazing things about him was Williams’ scar on his face. On his 25th birthday, he is attacked by a foreign man.
The man pulled his hand over his mouth and hit me. What he did was spit out a razor blade. Put the mixture in his mouth to put it between his fingers. He also said in an interview with NPR radio that he pulled it on my face interested in trade.
He went on to say that this was just the beginning of the fighting that followed, and that he and his friends barely escaped with their lives. However, the scar he received was the start of his career as an actor. Until then he worked as a background dancer in music videos.
Things changed as soon as I got the scar. Directors no longer want me to dance in videos. They wanted me to play gangsters.
And that’s exactly what he did in “The Wire” where he was loved by fans. He had the role of gang robber Little Omar from 2002 to 2008.
