As we remember Michael K. Williams, we look back on all the substantial contributions he made to the Entertainment Arts, his years in the business from 1994 to the present. While HBO’s “The Wire” was his most memorable moment for some, he was also featured in hit series such as Boardwalk Empire, Hap and Leonard, and Lovecraft Country, to name a few. And in every role that Michael K. Williams took on, he was authentic and made the character relatable to the show’s viewers – a pure diamond. His career as a great actor brought out the rough that so many of us don’t see in the diamond, the process of becoming a jewel that many want, from an element that came from the hard labors of mining stones.
