Michelle Williams was born on September 9, 1980 in Kalispell, Montana. Her father ran for the United States Senate twice, both times unsuccessfully. When she was 9, the family moved to San Diego. She became interested in acting after seeing local productions of musicals such as “Annie” and “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer”. She herself would eventually appear in a production of Annie. As she began pursuing acting more regularly, her family would bring Michelle up to San Diego for auditions. Michelle’s first on-screen appearance came in 1993 on an episode of “Baywatch”. This led to other parts on shows like “Home Improvement” and “Step by Step”. With her parents’ blessing she successfully emancipated herself at the age of 15 and moved to Burbank, California where she lived by herself to pursue a career full-time. She landed commercials and further bit parts to support herself. Michelle’s feature film debut came in 1994’s “Lassie”.
Michelle began dating co-star Heath Ledger while filming Brokeback Mountain. Matilda, their daughter, was born in 2005. In 2007, Heath and Michelle divorced. Heath died tragically from an accidental drug overdose.
