The world has been shocked today to learn of the death of much-loved comedian and actor Robin Williams.
While he left this world due to great sadness and depression, he leaves behind a legacy of laughter and happiness.
For myself, Robin Williams was one of the actors I grew up with. From Hook, to Flubber, to one of my all-time favourite films Aladdin, Robin Williams was a comedian who kept me laughing as I grew up. Once I got that little bit older, I was introduced to “actor” Williams through the likes of Dead Poets Society, Good Will Hunting, Bicentennial Man and Awakenings.
Even if you’ve never been a particular fan of Williams, he will have touched your life through film in one way or another. Whether that’s through making you laugh or making you cry, Williams will be sorely missed.
In the words of the Genie “I’m history! No, I’m mythology! Nah, I don’t care what I am; I’m free hee!”
Rest in Peace
July 21 1951 – August 11 2014
