Tom Hollander expressed that he hadn't genuinely mourned his Feud co-star Treat Williams, who passed away at the age of 71.
During an exclusive interview with PEOPLE magazine, Hollander described Williams as an incredibly kind person with a very positive and optimistic attitude.
The Night Manager actor said, “It's very, very tragic and it's quite difficult for us to talk about because he was right there just now, We haven't really mourned him.”
“We were just getting to know him. He was a very, very sweet spirit. He was the most positive up, glass-half-full enthusiast,” he added.
The 56-year-old actor shared that he thinks Williams “was so happy”to be a part of Feud, finding him “so generous and talkative.”
Treat Williams death:
Treat Williams died at the age of 71 following a motorcycle accident in Vermont on January 12, 2023.
He played the role of CBS co-founder Bill Paley, the influential husband of Babe Paley (Naomi Watts), Capote's former close friend in Feud.
According to a statement by his agent Barry McPherson, “He was killed this afternoon. He was making a left or a right [and] a car cut him off, I'm just devastated. He was the nicest guy. He was so talented.”
“He was an actor's actor. Filmmakers loved him. He's been the heart of the Hollywood since the late 1970s, He was really proud of his performance this year. He's been so happy with the work that I got him. He's had a balanced career,” he added.
Local fire chief Jacob Gribble told at that time that the crash occurred in the afternoon on Route 30 near Dorset, Vermont, by Long Trail Auto.
In the incident, a car collided with the Everwood star's motorcycle, and investigators believe the other driver didn't see the actor on the motorbike.
A LifeNet helicopter arrived and airlifted Williams to a New York hospital, but he was later pronounced dead.
