Robin Williams, who was 63 at the time of his death, was credited in more than 100 movie roles during his life. We’re reliving some of our favorite moments one day after his tragic Aug. 11 passing.
Who can forget 1993’s hilarious tale, Mrs. Doubtfire! In the family-focused movie, Robin’s character, Daniel Hillard, disguised himself as a nanny named Mrs Doubtfire so he could spend time with his children after a divorce. Robin truly captured America’s heart playing a father who would do anything to spend time with his kids.
We can still watch Robin in 1987’s Good Morning Vietnam on a loop. Robin played a quirky DJ in the film! Robin’s mix of fast-talking and voice impersonations shine in the flick.
And remember in 1995’s Jumanji, when Robin played a man named Alan Parrish who had been trapped for decades? Sporting a big beard, Robin spent the movie fighting wild animals and getting into crazy situations. No one could’ve been more believable in such an unbelievable tale!
Robin truly shined in Patch Adams, which was released in 1998. In the heartwarming movie, Robin played a doctor who treated his patients with humor. Robin brought his quirky emotions to the outstanding character.
We adore Robin in 1996’s The Birdcage — who could forget when his character taught the Madonna dance moves? Or what about his classic 1989 Dead Poets Society moment where his character says, “Oh captain, my captain?” And no one could’ve played the whimsical and wonderful Peter Pan the way Robin did in 1991’s Hook.
And last, we can’t remember Robin without mentioning 1997’s Good Will Hunting. Robin played a psychologist in the movie. He delivers the line that loss “only occurs when you love something more than you love yourself” with perfect grace. Robin won the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for this role.
We truly can’t imagine another actor ever being able to fill Robin’s shoes. He was such a gift to the movie world. Watch our HollywoodLife.com tribute video to Robin’s best movie moments above.
