Famed and renowned actor Michael K. Williams was found dead in his New York home yesterday.

Williams, who was 54 years old, was adored by many fans for roles spanning television, film and video games as well.

Williams was likely best known for his role in hit series The Wire.

He appeared across a number of acclaimed shows and movies.

His talent earned him five Emmy nominations over the course of his busy career.

He also graced video games with his art, playing the role of Kimble “Irish” Graves in Battlefield 4.

As revealed by the 9-minute cinematic short film "Exodus", Irish is returning in Battlefield 2042.

As all voice and motion capture work has likely been completed months ago, the tragedy will not affect what very well may be his last performance.

There has been an outpour of condolences from fans and colleagues.

DICE also posted in recognition of his passing.

Rest in peace.
