Michelle Williams


Recommended Posts

Michelle Ingrid Williams (born September 9, 1980) is an American actress. In December 2005, Williams earned a Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Brokeback Mountain. She is considered to be a frontrunner for the same category in the race for the 2006 Oscars. Born in Kalispell, Montana, USA, she is the eldest of the five children of Larry, a commodities broker, and Carla Williams, a homemaker. When she was nine, her family moved to San Diego, California. Her mother took her to auditions in Los Angeles where she won her first film role, as a space alien who turned into Natasha Henstridge in the 1995 movie Species. She graduated from high school at fifteen and was emancipated from her parents so she could pursue an acting career. She won several small roles before she was cast as Jen Lindley on Dawson's Creek, the part that would make her a star.

On Dawson's Creek, her character, only fifteen, had been too much for her parents to handle, drinking, partying, having sex from age twelve, so she was exiled from her home in New York City, to live in Capeside, Massachusetts with her maternal grandmother. Jen was everything her grandmother was not: jaded, cynical, irreligious, and more, leading to frequent arguments and her eventually being kicked out of the house. The show ran for six seasons, from 1998 to 2003.

Her first starring role in films was as Arlene in Dick, a satire of the Watergate scandal, in which she starred with Kirsten Dunst.

She has been in a half-dozen subsequent films, some of them well-reviewed (e.g. The Station Agent, Me Without You), but few have been great commercial successes. Her biggest hits came from supporting roles in Halloween H20: 20 Years Later and Brokeback Mountain.

Private life

She is engaged to actor Heath Ledger, whom she met on the set of Brokeback Mountain, for which she garnered a 2005 Golden Golden nomination for Best Supporting Actress. She gave birth to the couple's first child on October 28, 2005. Baby girl Matilda Rose Ledger weighed 6lbs. 5oz.
