My Memories of Robin [Video]

Robin Williams’s life ended on Monday August 11th 2014, I don’t have to explain why this man was so special, we all know.

My first memories of Robin Williams was when he appeared on “Happy Days” as the alien Mork from Ork. I remember looking at him and feeling like I already knew him.

My prospective of Robin for many years was that he was a comedian turned actor, I always thought he got his start in small clubs and worked his way up, but to my surprise Robin studied at a prestigious acting program at Julliard in 1973.

Robin Williams won five Grammys, two Emmys, and an Academy Award in his 63 years, but his legacy is one of the greatest actors of our time.

He won’t be making any new movies; we won’t see him on any new TV shows, charity appearances, stand up comedy or awards shows.

Robin Williams did not leave us, he will live on through the many characters he’s portrayed, from Mork to Sean Maguire in Good Will Hunting, Mrs. Doubtfire, and even Popeye, we will be seeing a lot of him for many years to come, in fact it’s safe to say he will be with us for the rest of our lives.

Thank you Robin, we will never forget you.

Check out some rare footage bloopers from Robins first starring role, even when he was messing up his lines he was hilarious.
