Andre Royo — one of Michael K. Williams‘ co-stars on “The Wire” — says the entire ‘Wire’ family is feeling the loss … but he’s encouraging people to keep spreading the late actor’s positivity.
Andre — who played the drug addict and informant “Bubbles” on the popular HBO series — was out in NYC Friday when he reflected on Michael’s life … saying he was someone who cared about everybody.
Royo tells us Williams’ death was a stunner, but he hopes people will rally together to keep his name alive, remember his work, and shine his light … because his former co-star was a great person, and clearly left a major impact.
As we reported … Williams — who played the beloved character Omar on “The Wire” before going on to star on several other hit shows — was found dead Monday of an apparent overdose in his Brooklyn apartment.
There’s been an outpouring of love and respect for Michael this week, and like Andre points out … the tributes are warranted.
