Michael Kenneth Williams

Actor

Born - 22 November 1966, New York City, USA
Died - 6 September 2021

Oval-faced, lightly-bearded Afro-American actor with high forehead, originally a dancer. Although always in prominent roles, his career was blighted by the drug abuse that nonetheless did not stop him running up more than 150 film and TV credits, including 50 episodes of The Wire as Omar Little. After a movie debut in Bullet (1996), he was seen in Bringing Out the Dead (1998), Broke Even (2000), Doing Hard Time (2004), The Bondage (2006), Gone Baby Gone (2007), The Incredible Hulk (2008), Brooklyn's Finest (2009), The Road (2009), LUV (2012), Snitch (2013), 12 Years a Slave (2013), The Purge: Anarchy (2014), Captive (2015), Ghostbusters (2016), Assassin's Creed (2016), SuperFly (2018), Motherless Brooklyn (2019), Arkansas (2020), Body Brokers (2021), Surrounded (2022) and 892 (2022), his last. A prodigious worker for children's causes, and sometimes billed as Michael K Williams, he died from an accidental drug overdose.
