Late Michael K Williams' fearsome scar helped launch his acting career
In related news, Briefly News reported that late actor Michael K Williams' scar reportedly helped him launch his acting career. Before he became a famous thespian, the superstar was a dancer in music videos of popular musicians.
The New York Post reports that Michael was celebrating his 25th birthday with his friends when he got the scar down his face. They were at a bar in Queens when he sustained the injury.
According to the publication, Michael told National Public Radio in a 2014 interview that he went outside the bar to get some fresh air when he saw some of his friends surrounded by a group of unknown men. He explained that one of the men spit a sharp razor from his mouth.
"And then he just went — swiped me down my face, and this cut my face."
Michael shared that things changed for the better immediately after the fight. Music video directors did not just want him to dance in the videos but wanted him to portray thug roles as well.
