Willie was the person who took me under his wing and had lunch with me and took me out to dinner. He saw the version of me that I wasn’t yet, but that I was working toward,” she said.

Her tattoo, which she shared on her Instagram, is on her left forearm, and says in Willie‘s handwriting: “Calm down.”

“He would pay you the biggest compliment in the world, and the second you’d start to get bashful about it, he’d be like ‘Calm down, calm down.’ It was his way of forcing you to accept the compliment, because he would diffuse it, which was a lovely habit,” she recalled.

Many of Willie‘s co-stars also spoke out and expressed their grief following the news of his death.
