*On the heels of yesterday’s tragic passing of Michael K. Williams at age 54, Tamron Hall opened today’s edition of her nationally-syndicated show with a moving tribute to the celebrated actor who came to prominence in his role as Omar Little in iconic HBO series, “The Wire.”
Widely-expected to win his first Emmy in the coming weeks for his role in another HBO drama, “Lovecraft Country,” Williams was not only known for his acting, but also as an advocate for criminal justice reform and substance abuse, using his platform to break the stigma surrounding addiction.
While sharing a clip from his recent appearance on the show, Hall reflected on her time with Williams saying that it was “one of the most powerful shows and interviews I’ve done in my decades of reporting and interviewing people.” Fighting through her tears, Tamron went on to detail an emotional reunion she recently had with Williams in his Brooklyn neighborhood.
Season three of “Tamron Hall” debuted Monday, September 6.
