Michael K. Williams Said He Sought Therapy In One Of His Last Interviews


Before his passing Michael K. Williams opened up about entering therapy to address his struggles with drug abuse during one of his last interviews after filming HBO’s “Lovecraft Country.”

Just months before he was found dead of a suspected heroin overdose on Monday, Williams told Tamron Hall that he sought mental health treatment after wrapping up the Emmy-nominated performance.

“I just started therapy, you know, and really taking that seriously and starting to unpack, like you said, the critic in my head and what and how that has affected my — my actions, my responses to certain situations, my relationships,” he said in the interview video clip above which was posted to YouTube on Feb. 25.

In the interview he also opens up about his own battle with substance abuse, and how meeting Barack Obama before he was president changed his life.
