Lupita's emotional tribute to Michael K. Williams
On Wednesday, September 8, 2021, Lupita emotionally remembered the late Michael K. Williams.
The actress shared an emotional tribute on her Facebook page, attaching a photo of the late actor clearly showing his famous scar.
ln her caption, Lupita narrated that she had met the late Michael during the 12 Years A Slave movie auditions, and they sat together at dinner.
The thespian said she was drawn to his kind eyes that were a contrast to the scar between them, and when she asked about the scar, he was kind enough to tell the story "like he had never told it before".
"I sat next to him at dinner that night and was drawn to his kind eyes that were a direct contrast to the menacing scar that sat between them. He was soft-spoken and warm. When I asked him about his scar - a question I quickly realized he must have gotten a million times, he gave me a smile and a light chuckle and said, "I have lived many lives, Lupita." And then he graciously told me the story, like he had never told it before," she wrote.
