Michelle Williams Reflects On Her Time On ‘Dawson’s Creek’: ‘It Was A Little Like A Factory Job’

With 20 years since her last television gig, Michelle Williams is looking back at the show that started it all.

The four-time Oscar nominee starred as Jen Lindley for six seasons on “Dawson’s Creek” before trading it in for the big screen. But now with Emmy buzz surrounding her first TV role since Lindley on”Fosse/Verdon”, Williams is reflecting on the hit teen drama.

“Doing ‘Dawson’s Creek’ for 6-and-a-half years, while it was an incredible learning experience – we did 22 episodes a year, and you’d be getting scripts at the last minute and you had zero input,” Williams said in an interview with actress Patricia Clarkson for Variety. “It was a little like a factory job.”

And her role in “Fosse/Verdon” helped her lose that fear of television, “Try as I might. I don’t think I’ve done television in between then and now because of a fear of loss of input. When this came around, people had been saying for a long time, ‘Television is different now.’ And I could see that that was true and that it was something that I should open myself up to.”

Williams also served as an executive on the miniseries about the real-life relationship between Gwen Verdon and Bob Fosse (played by Sam Rockwell).

But she still has love for Jen Lindley, revealing to reporters at the 2019 Television Critics Association winter press tour that she’s open for a “Dawson’s Creek” reunion.

“I think I’ve been waving that flag for a while, like why not?” she said before adding, “Although my character died, so I’d have to be a ghost.”

“I think people forget that we killed Michelle,” Jackson says on the latest episode of “The IMDb Show”, referring to the death of Williams’ character.
