In Michael K. Williams’ upcoming posthumous memoir, the actor shares details about the fight that led to his facial scar. It all happened one night at a club in Queens when Williams was out celebrating his 25th birthday. In an attack outside the club, Williams was cut across the face with a knife. Eventually, “the cut healed into one big swollen line and I never felt more ugly,” he writes. But in the world of acting, his scar made him stand out. “Strangers would stop me on the street and say they found my scars striking. I began to get gigs in music videos, not even to dance,” Williams writes in his memoir. “I guess the scar gave me an ‘edge.’ It made me look like the tough guy I wasn’t.” Williams’ memoir Scenes from My Life is available everywhere books are sold on August 23rd.
