Goodbye, Robin Williams...

You will be missed.

http://www.businessinsider.com/actor...is-home-2014-8


He was a bit of an inspiration for me. My whacky "characters" be they in person, online, or other, is something I have done since I was a little kid. He was part of the inspiration I had for the voices I do IRL, and whenever I'd do an act on stage in school.

Those of you who know me a bit on the serious issues elsewhere in the forum know Mr Williams and I probably wouldn't agree on a whole lot, but even so it goes beyond serious business. Actually, when I need to dial it back a bit and not be so serious is when I'd do my thing and kinda think of him.


The fact he committed suicide is a bit of a shock to me. I always thought him a likeable guy, too. Sad day that we have lost such a marvelous actor.

Wow. This is really hard news to take. I've always admired him since I was a little kid, and, even though not all of his movies a great, I loved so much of his work and always looked forward to seeing what he would do next. Any death is tragic, and this is no different. I know he'll be greatly missed by his family and his fans.

So long Robin Williams. We'll never forget all the laughs you brought us.

Sad day indeed. He was not only a great comedian, but a great actor as demonstrated by his more serious roles. He just knew how to get an appropriate reaction from the audience. I don't know what to think about this news and the suspected circumstances of his death.

Have a good rest Mr. Williams and thanks for all the laughs.

I hope it wakes some people up. Depression is not just some "Gee get over it already, you have a good life." kind of thing. People need to realize that depression isn't just someone who needs to cheer up. Many of our soldiers come back to the states with the same kind of depression and take their lives the same way.

I will truly miss seeing Robin Williams in movies. He could pull off almost any kind of role. From the lovable oaf, to the slapstick humor, to the deep thinking, to the truly terrifying, Robin Williams could do them all, and give them everything he had.

Damn.


My personal favorite movie(which has repeatedly been omitted in some articles I've read) is one of his early movies, 1986 I think, The Best of Times with Kurt Russell---classic.

Quite a sad passing. What made him so beloved is that you could tell that nice personality of his on the screen wasn't just an act; he really was that nice. You will be missed, Mr. Williams.

Death is very sad and all, but this one has shaken me a hell of a lot more than any other celebrity or public figure that I can remember. He wasn't just an actor or a comedian, he was like a part of the family. A part of everyone's family. He was that goofy uncle you may not see very often, but who could always put a smile on your face whether you knew you needed it or not.

The world will miss him. Something fierce.

R.I.P. Robin Williams.


Was the best actor to ever pull off the role of Popeye. But I'll remember him the most for Mork & Mindy.

The day I heard he had passed away, I could barely believe it. And I didn't know that this golden-hearted, beloved and funny as hell actor actually was horribly depressed. Goodbye, Captain, and RIP. You will never be forgotten.

I just watched his Inside the Actors studio visit a couple of days before he died... R.I.P.
