Default ‘Wire’ actor lost his fight with demons

‘Wire’ actor lost his fight with demons

By Leonard Greene

New York Daily News


“The Wire” actor Michael K. Williams died from a lethal overdose of fentanyl, heroin and cocaine, the city’s medical examiner said on Friday, revealing the cause of death for the beloved Brooklynite.
The East Flatbush native, who publicly struggled with addiction, was found dead on Sept. 6 in his Williamsburg penthouse.
The medical examiner said Williams’ death was accidental.
Police found a glassine envelope containing drugs inside his apartment, according to sources.
Over the years, Williams, 54, had spoken openly about his struggles with drug addiction, both before breaking into show business and during his time on HBO’s groundbreaking hit series set in Baltimore, “The Wire.”
“I was playing with fire,” Williams told the Newark Star-Ledger in 2012, describing how he’d score drugs in the city’s most dangerous neighborhoods.
“It was just a matter of time before I got caught and my business ended up on the cover of a tabloid or I went to jail or, worse, I ended up dead. When I look back on it now, I don’t know how I didn’t end up in a body bag.”
Williams was best known for his portrayal of Omar, the vigilante stick-up specialist who robbed drug dealers in “The Wire.”
In real life, Williams was a dedicated advocate of anti-violence efforts in the Brooklyn neighborhoods where he grew up. Police officers and activists told the Daily News he dedicated countless hours to mentoring young people and improving the NYPD’s standing in the community.
Fans of the actor had hoped he would score a posthumous Emmy for his work on “Lovecraft Country.”
Tobias Menzies, who took the outstanding supporting actor in a drama series prize, was not at the award ceremony Sunday night, but dedicated his statue to Williams in a tweet after his win.
“Congrats to all my brilliant fellow nominees,” Menzies wrote. “But want to dedicate this to Michael K Williams, his performance as Omar in The Wire is one of the great screen performances, he will be deeply missed. RIP.”
