As she’d be the first to tell you, Michelle Williams, a movie star with practically no experience as a singer and dancer, was not an obvious choice to play the nightclub entertainer Sally Bowles in “Cabaret.” She is making her Broadway debut in the role, at Studio 54, in the Roundabout Theater Company’s resuscitation of its legendary 1998 production, which brings back Alan Cumming in his Tony-winning turn as the Emcee. But she got the job only after Emma Stone (who does have a modest background in musical theater and, because of “The Amazing Spider-Man,” is more recognizable as well) dropped out.

“They didn’t call it an audition,” Ms. Williams said, recalling her first meeting with the show’s co-directors, Sam Mendes and Rob Marshall, who is also the choreographer. “But that’s what it was, and I’m fine with that. Sally was never a first choice. That’s why she had to go to Berlin.”

Even smaller in person than she looks on screen, Ms. Williams, 33, does not have a big-movie-star manner. She’s shy, earnest, thoughtful, and after being swarmed by the press following the 2008 death of Heath Ledger, with whom she had a daughter, a little wary of publicity.

Blank on Blank, the PBS Digital Studios project, which takes obscure interviews from entertainment icons, and sets them to interesting animation, has a new video out featuring the late Heath Ledger talking about role playing and about Michelle Williams, who is also featured throughout the visuals.

The “lost interview” was conducted by Christine Spines in 2005.

Ledger recalls he and Williams living in a trailer with Williams, saying, “It was really beautiful. Yeah it was very romantic. We were suddenly thrown into a little husband-wife situation. Our bed, honestly, was no bigger than that little round table there. My legs would hang off this far at the end. But it was worth it. And it was comfortable, somehow…Yeah, it was sweet. It was very, very sweet. I could have stayed like that for years. It was very, very, very sweet.”
