Michelle Williams is best known for her roles in Shutter Island (2010), Oz the Great and Powerful (2013), The Greatest Showman (2017), Venom (2018), and Venom: Let There Be Carnage (2021). Michelle will also return in Venom 3 alongside Tom Hardy.
Most recently Michelle starred in Steven Spielberg’s The Fabelmans. In the film, she plays the role of Mitzi Schildkraut-Fabelman, Sammy’s encouraging mother and a skilled pianist. She is based on Spielberg’s mother, Leah Adler.
Speaking to W Magazine, she was asked “How did the part of Mitzi Fabelman come to you?” Michelle replied, “I got a text saying that Steven Spielberg wanted to get on a Zoom with me. It so shocked me. I couldn’t speak, and I just sort of showed the phone to my husband [director Thomas Kail] so that he could confirm that it said what I thought I had read. Then we jumped, and we cried, and we laughed, and we wondered, and then we Zoomed.”
