MICHELLE WILLIAMS
By Eric Gladstone

“I worked hard to make it mine,” she says, having painted walls, hung lighting, replaced doorknobs and handles and filling it with secondhand furniture, an oil can collection, an etching of a saint she found by the roadside, and of course, those books. Michelle fills her downtime with more than reading, though—she hosts a weekly poker game, typically attended by cast members Kerr Smith (“Jack”) and Josh Jackson (“Pacey”) as well as Morgan. Then there’s jet skiing, the occasional karaoke performance, and believe it or not, watching presidential debates.

“This is my first year being able to vote and I’m just fucking thrilled. I’ve been paying taxes since I was fifteen and always been really upset about the fact that I couldn’t vote.

“I have a really hard time relaxing,” Michelle confides. “And I just kind of feel unsettled, or in limbo. I always had a real need to just be older than I was, and to grow up quickly. I was really intent about those things, and I would get them soon. I love children,” she says, musing on the psychic’s prediction “I love the way their perception is still their own.

“But now I’m just happy to be nineteen. Just figuring out what I’m going to do, with the rest of my life, to an extent.” For now, there is hiatus work. Following parts in Halloween H2O, Dick, “Killer Joe” and “Walls,” she’s looking forward to joining the revolving New York cast of the stage production “The Vagina Monologues” this spring, and making Don’t Blink, a film about three girls who meet in a Nevada brothel, which she and fellow actresses Meghan Perry and Amy Danles wrote for themselves. It’s hard not to see a pattern of roles increasingly defined by, umm…sexuality.

“My therapist know that sex defines a lot of my roles,” says Michelle with a confessional smile. “We’re very, very aware of this. I know all about why, where it stems from. I know.”

Not that she wants to talk about it.
