The Wire's Omar: UK shows me love
(UKPA) – 2 days ago
The Wire's Michael K Williams has revealed he is desperate to come to the UK to meet his British fans.
Speaking in Hollywood, the actor - who plays Omar in the crime drama - said: "It's crazy, the UK has been showing me a lot of love!"
He added: "I can't wait to get out there and walk about the streets."
Michael, who was speaking at the premiere of his new film The Road, insists admirers of the show's renowned stick-up man aren't odd.
"It's nothing strange, it's love, that's what I call it, it's humbling," he said. "This Halloween I got a pumpkin carved out as my character Omar's likeness, that's a little scary, but cool."
He added: "It never stops, I feel like The Wire response has grown since the show ended."
But, surprisingly, Michael's No 1 fan - his mum - is yet to watch The Wire.
He explained: "I don't come from a show business family. They're very conservative people, Caribbean and West Indian based. My mum, she doesn't even watch The Wire but she's like 'ok son, whatever you're doing keep it up!' - she gives me a little thumbs up every now and then."
