Never missed a movie which had he in it. Always turned out to be enjoyable. Loved his serious side too. As in Dead Poet's Society. He looked so tragic, so devastated. My favorite one liner. "Gynecologists, welcome to your cervix." RIP.

This is really sad, one of the best actors I have seen in recent times and he was so natural. RIP Robin.

RIP Robin Williams. Shocked and saddened by his untimely passing. Truly one among the finest comedians of all times. An inimitable actor of unsurpassed panache.

+1 to that. These were the exacts thoughts that crossed my mind when I heard the tragic news.

Thanks for the memories Mr. Williams and all those afternoons watching reruns of your brilliance. May you finally have the peace that you craved for

Yep, I agree with you. Those who are unable to be happy probably appreciate more the need to be happy. After that its only step away from self deprecation and humour.
Making someone laugh or smile is one of the most difficult tasks, especially with so many others determined to complicate lives for people

Am shocked and gutted. Loved his work, both serious and of course comedy. Absolutely brilliant actor and one got the feeling he was a brilliant human being as well. Just so sad to see him go this way. Hope he rests in peace. Will miss your work Robin.

RIP Robin!
Your act, your expression and your sense of humor has been a source of great inspiration. Who can forget Dead Poets Society or Good Will Hunting?

The thing I really appreciate most were his hosting talent shows. His sense of comic and one liners are impeccable.

O CAPTAIN! my Captain! our fearful trip is done;
The ship has weather'd every rack, the prize we sought is won;
The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,
While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring:
But O heart! heart! heart! O the bleeding drops of red,
Where on the deck my Captain lies,
Fallen cold and dead

What an irony - the people who make others laugh the most are themselves sad and depressed in their own lives! RIP Robin Williams.
Mrs.Doubtfire, Good Will Hunting, Jumanji and Good morning vietnam are some of my all-time favourites.
