Catalogue Note

Williams met Jonah Lomu—who in 1994 became the youngest All Black at just 19—at San Francisco's Fairmont Hotel in 1998 during a publicity stunt organized by the New Zealand Rugby Union. At the time Williams was starring in What Dreams May Come (1998), and Lomu was rugby's biggest star. The two became fast friends, and were known to have exchanged gifts with one another over the course of their friendship. Lomu unexpectedly died of a heart attack on the morning of 18 November 2015.
