Actor Michael K. Williams sometimes makes appearances at universities and other organizations in order to talk about shows and films that he has appeared in over the years. Williams makes these public appearances in order to promote a program or movie and to give students inside information about various aspects of the film and television industry.
Making hit films and TV shows is not an easy thing to do and it requires a lot of work. All good shows need excellent writers, outstanding actors, experienced directors and knowledgeable producers. Actors are essential to any show because they have to bring characters to life and in many cases make them their own. The goal of most actors is to play a role so well that many people will identify them by that particular role. Williams has this kind of notoriety as the character Omar Little on the HBO drama series the Wire.
Michael wants to help people to understand that acting is serious business and that people will have to be dedicated to this art form if they want to be involved in this line of work.
The work challenging because it is often times hard for an actor or television show to remain relevant over the years; especially since there are so many competing programs vying for a person’s attention.
