The former star of naval drama ‘NCIS’ said goodbye to her great friend in deep pain.
Yesterday, the entertainment industry was completely shaken by the death of actor Michael K. Williams, who was known for his roles in series such as “Broadwalk Empire” and “The Wire.” Immediately, condolence messages flooded social media, and “NCIS” ex-star Pauley Perrette was among the last to speak out amid the heartbreaking goodbye.
Perrette hasn’t appeared in Donald Bellisario’s fiction in over three years, but her popularity as Abby Sciuto remains unaffected. This is why a large community of “NCIS” fans accompanied the actress, who, via her official Twitter profile, paid heartfelt tribute to the man she had considered her brother her entire life.
“My dear brother, I love you. We were like children when we first met. In our 20s, we danced around New York. And then our “grown-up” conversations. Forever and ever in my heart. I love you. #MichaelKWilliams,” the former “NCIS” star wrote on her Twitter account.
Pauley’s post was accompanied by an emotional postcard from Michael K. Williams, demonstrating their deep friendship. The former “NCIS” star’s post received over 3 million likes from Internet users, as well as an endless list of messages accompanying her deep grief.
Enigma and public goodbye
In addition to the former “NCIS” character, many companies that have had the honor of having Michael K. Williams in their ranks have joined in on the hard moment. “We are devastated to learn of the passing of Michael Kenneth Williams, a member of the HBO family for more than 20 years. While the world knows of his immense talent as an artist, we have come to know Michael as a dear friend who was loved by all who had the privilege of working with him. We extend our deepest condolences to his family for this immeasurable loss,” the major network wrote.
To this moment, there is icy silence within the family of Michael K. Williams as to what caused the unexpected death. Police sources told The Post that an alleged drug overdose in his Brookling attic may have been the cause of the tragedy.
