His death was deemed to be unintended in nature, a spokesperson for the workplace mentioned in a press release on Friday.
“Addiction doesn’t go away,” he mentioned. “It’s an everyday struggle for me, but I’m fighting.”
Williams most lately appeared in HBO’s “Lovecraft Country” and the collection “F Is for Family.”
He rose to stardom for his nuanced and highly effective efficiency as Omar Little in “The Wire.” He additionally acquired accolades for his work on “Boardwalk Empire,” “Bessie” and “The Night Of.”
Williams was subsequent slated to co-star in Sony’s George Foreman biopic from George Tillman Jr., who was set to direct.
The ceremony’s “In Memoriam” tribute ended with a quote from Williams: “The only way for me to say thank you is by making sure that the foundation that I am standing on is strong enough to support the next person that will stand on these two shoulders.”
