Actor Pallance Dladla also paid tribute to Williams. In an Instagram post, Dladla said: “I will never forget our conversation. I’m broken. Rest in peace & power Brother Michael. My condolences ma (Tasha Smith). I wish I was there with you right now.”

Williams reportedly died from a suspected heroin overdose after he was found by his nephew earlier this week.

“The Wire” star was found face-down by his nephew inside his penthouse in Brooklyn, New York, on Monday afternoon after he went to check on him at the luxury complex because no one had heard from the 54-year-old actor for several days.

His nephew raised the alarm and a doorman subsequently called emergency services, reportedly telling the phone operator, the “12 Years A Slave” star was "unresponsive” and “felt cold”.

Paramedics rushed to the scene, but the actor was pronounced dead at 2.12pm, according to the New York Post newspaper.

Williams was best known for his role as Omar Little in HBO's “The Wire” and Albert “Chalky” White on the series, “Boardwalk Empire”.
