Just read this on the BBC website: US actor Robin Williams has been found dead, aged 63, in an apparent suicide, California police say.
He was/is a brilliant man, who had a daring performance style and played wide-ranging dramatic roles. He named his daughter Zelda for fracks sake, how awesome is that?
Whenever I was sad and depressed as a kid, his movies would cheer me up. I love his movies, from the hilarious Mrs Doubtfire to the more serious thrillers like The Final Cut and movies such as Patch Adams, despite the fact that he dressed up like a clown [I hate clowns]. Heck, I was even enjoying his more recent stuff like the TV Series The Crazy Ones. That man can do anything.
Robin Williams is like that endearing almost embarrassing mad uncle that you just can’t help but love. So I really hope that he’s not dead and that it’s just another hoax 😦
Anyways… I have to wake up early tomorrow, so I better go. Here’s a top 10 of Robin William’s best performances:
