Happy birthday Robin Williams: The actor who taught us how to seize the day
Today marks what would you have been Robin Williams’ 66th birthday.
Williams sadly passed away on August 11th 2014 from suicide, however a later autopsy revealed that the actor had been suffering from Lewy’s body dementia, a neurological disease which was incorrectly diagnosed as Parkinson’s.
His body of work was, quite frankly, nothing short of incredible. From broad comedies like Mrs. Doubtfire and Aladdin to emotional dramas such as Awakenings and Dead Poets’ Society, Williams’ range was unparalleled and his enthusiasm just leaped out of the screen with every role.
Here’s our pick of his five best scenes.
5. MRS. DOUBTFIRE – “My first day as a woman and I’m getting hot flashes.”
Nobody could do physical comedy quite like Robin Williams. In all of his comedy roles, Williams’ charm and zaniness bubbled right to the surface because it was as much a part of his personality as it was his performance. One of Williams’ many family-friendly hits was Mrs. Doubtfire, where he played a voice artist desperate to reconnect with his kids in whatever way he can. While it may be somewhat corny in parts, there’s no denying that Williams was on fire – literally – in this scene.
