When a 15-year-old is emancipated herself from the family solely for the future of her acting career, there must be something extraordinary in her. Whenever interviewers asked about her emancipation from the Williams family in Kalispell, Montana, Michelle Williams emphasized that there was nothing wrong between her and the family. Her only dream was to pursue an acting career, which culminated in Jen Lindley, a troubled teenager in the hit teen show ‘Dawson’s Creek.’ Jen’s role catapulted the 16-year-old fledgling actress into instant fame and she became a TV idol.
Out of fear of being typecast, Williams soon started worked towards her dream during the hiatus of ‘Dawson’s Creek.’ She managed to act in movies like ‘Dick’ and ‘Halloween H20: 20 Years Later.’ She found her comfort zone in indies ‘Me Without You,’ ‘Prozac Nation’ and ‘The Station Agent.’ In 2005, Williams got the biggest break in the career in the form of an Oscar Nomination for ‘Brokeback Mountain.’ She was nominated for her first Academy Award for supporting actress and later got engaged to the late Heath Ledger. The couple has their first daughter, Mathilda Rose, on October 28.
Michelle Williams bounced back from the shock of Ledger’s untimely death in 2008 with the movies like ‘Blue Valentine,’ ‘My Week with Marilyn’ and ‘Manchester by the Sea.’ Last year, she made her comeback to the Television with FX limited series ‘Fosse/Verdon,’ alongside Sam Rockwell.
